Why Greendale seafood is best

At Greendale we’re only interested in selling the best to our customers. Because we have our own fishing fleet, we can supply our fish counter with regular fresh catches that can be traced directly back to the sea. Operating in accordance with the Seafood Responsible Fishing Scheme, our boats work out of Exmouth, Brixham and Newlyn, and catch a variety of fish from Westcountry waters; a catch can often be on its way to the Greendale farm shop within hours of leaving the sea. If we can’t catch it ourselves, we source only from trusted suppliers with standards as high as our own, and we take great pride in ensuring that a delicious variety is always to be found on our fish counter.

Scallops with Minted Peas Recipe

Scallops with Minted Peas Recipe

This delectable starter takes just moments to make – especially if you make the pea purée ahead, and reheat it gently while the scallops are cooking.

Pan-Fried Dover Sole Recipe

Pan-Fried Dover Sole Recipe

Planning a romantic meal for two? This delicious Dover Sole recipe is well worth a try; it may sound a bit fiddly, but the fish is actually pretty straightforward to cook (and the ‘fancy’ sauce is bound to impress!). Serve with your choice of steamed veg or salad.

Mitch Tonk's Spaghetti with Greendale Crab

Mitch Tonk's Spaghetti with Greendale Crab

Another tasty recipe from Local chef Mitch Tonks. Pasta & seafood is an absolute favourite of Mitch's and using Greendale's local Lyme Bay Devon crab you can’t go wrong, it’s a crowd pleaser any time of the year.

Fresh Fish

Responsibly Caught

We continuously work towards improving the sustainability of our catch, and lessening the impact fishing operations can have on the marine environment. All our boats operate under strict fishing quotas, designed to prevent overfishing in UK waters, and we have modified the engine of each vessel to minimise carbon emissions. Having achieved Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) sustainability accreditation for our Cornish hake catch, we’re seeking MSC accreditation for a further three fisheries. We also follow the Seafood Responsible Fishing Scheme, to ensure high standards of management, maintenance, crew safety and wellbeing on board our boats. To learn more, click here.

Food Waste

Nothing Gets Wasted

We hate waste! We try to ensure our fish reaches customers in as fresh a state as possible, either from our fish counter or online (fresh fish is delivered via an overnight service). Our skilled fishmongers never discard quality fish if they can help it - filleting offcuts are used in our ready-made fish pies, fish pie mixes and fish cakes, while empty crab and lobster shells are used to make our bisque and fish stock. Any remaining fish waste is collected from us by Advanced Proteins, which processes animal waste into bio-fuel and key pet-food ingredients.

Supporting

Fishing for litter

Greendale supports Fishing for Litter (FFL), a brilliant environmental project. FFL aims to reduce marine litter by involving key stakeholders – namely the fishing industry – in actively collecting and removing the rubbish gathered in their nets during normal fishing activities, including plastics, ghost gear, textiles and other debris. FFL provides vessels with bags to store this rubbish in while at sea, and places skips and bins in ports to receive the rubbish when the vessel returns to land.

Salmon Coulibiac Recipe

Salmon Coulibiac Recipe

We think this fabulously tasty fish pie is well worth a little time and effort! It’s also a good one to have up your sleeve, as the uncooked pie can be made a day ahead and chilled in the fridge, or frozen for up to two months.

Greendale Scallops with Chorizo Recipe

Greendale Scallops with Chorizo Recipe

Fresh, sweet scallops pair deliciously with flavour-packed chorizo in this easy one-pan recipe. It’s worth laying the table before you start to cook, as it doesn’t take long!

Lobster Eggs Benedict Recipe

Lobster Eggs Benedict Recipe

Classic Eggs Benedict is a bit of a luxury in itself – but our lovely, locally-caught lobster lifts it to a whole new level.
