Fish has always been our family business- which is decades old. These days we have been joined by our grandsons who assist in the day to day operation. We have a dedicated staff team who represent the brand with the highest of standards.PROCESSINGAs a supplier nowadays basic fish preparation work saves valuable kitchen preparation time , eliminates unnecessary waste and gives a more consistent end product for the client. The processes are listed below:DESCALING-The removal of all scales which are inedible on the surface of the fish.CLEANING-This involves the evisceration of the fish and the removal of stomach and gills.FILLETING-This is the action of removing the fillets from the bones using a knife. The end result should always be a clean piece of fish almost ready to go...PIN BONING-Fish posess several small bones within the flesh which should be removed after filleting. They are generally small and are referred to as "pins" hence the word pin bone. Bones are a necessary evil of course but it's our responsibility to remove them during the process flow.PORTIONING-Generally speaking fish will be scaled, filleted and pin boned in our normal production cycle, but some clients welcome a finished cut portion of fish to a weight tolerance e.g. a 200 gram salmon portion. Although this work is generally carried out by the kitchen staff, we can and do provide this service for large banquet orders where kitchen space may be compromised etc. QUALITYA FEW TIPS TO LOOK OUT FOR WHEN BUYING FISH:Fresh whole fish should be firm to the touch and smell fresh. The eyes should be bright and shiny and the gills should be red.Molluscs should be closed or close when you gently tap them. No cracked or broken shells.
