    Morrisons fish is usually rank mate, best to get fresh fish from the coast. Sunderland and North Shields have cracking fresh fish. Hoy a bit of butter in the foil as well :)

    If they are from Taylors they will be as fresh as paint when bought mate, they sell hods of those fiver boxes to Chinese people and it has to be super fresh for them to even consider.

  2. Unfortunately we are about as far as we can be from the coast.

    I am sure that you could buy fresh fish at Seaham too, our dad took us sometimes on a Sunday morning iirc.

    The flats are witches marra, the gurnard in the centre and the one on the left looks like either a haddock or a hake . Any chance of taking a solo of it?

    After reading other comments it’s a hake , excellent baked , the witches are fab if ye steam them
    As for the gurnard I’d bake it

    Not a bad selection for £5

    Am I right in thinking hake was used a lot in fish shops years ago when cod was in short supply? Used a lot in Spain I think.

    It’s perfect man when you water bath it.

    Aye. Loads use shite like river cobbler, pangasius ling etc now. Mainly Indian kebab shops selling that sort of stuff. Never get fish and chips from anything that sells kebabs and pizzas as well.

    You needed to have included a box of matches in the photo so to compare the sizeS. Id take the lot to work wrapped in newspaper and sellotape them underneath the desk of the gaffers PA

    It’s massive in Spain & France. Spanish fisherman just been landed a fine of something like 250 grand for having tonnes of hake on board and trying to declare it as as haddock.
