The Saucy Fish Co. leads the way for sustainability

We care about where our seafood comes from, which is why – from fish to fork – responsibility is at the heart of everything we do here at The Saucy Fish Co.

We’re proud of the fact that we were the first company to sign up to the Sustainable Seafood Coalition (SSC).  That’s why this week we’ve signed up to their latest initiative to make it easier for you to understand the sustainability of the seafood you’re purchasing.

The SSC has launched two new codes – one for labelling and one for sourcing.  The labelling code aims to make it clear what the environmental claims on seafood packaging mean.  The sourcing code ensures that retailers and suppliers source their fish and seafood responsibly.

The new codes will be launched later this week at the Humber seafood summit – a gathering of industry representatives – in Grimsby.  We’ll be there, so keep an eye on our twitter feed for more information from the event.

We picked up the ‘Best Fish’ Award in Healthy Food Guide Food & Drink Awards 2014 for our hugely popular Salmon with Chilli, Lime and Ginger Sauce product – offering the best taste and nutritional value in its category.

The annual awards from the top consumer healthy food magazine recognise stand out nutritious products in the food and drink sector, as voted for by readers and a panel of food experts and dieticians.

Crazy for coconuts

Today, we are going crazy for coconuts! Why, you ask? Because this hidden gem not only promotes good health, but also great cooking!

With August being the best season for purchasing coconuts,  now is the ideal time to ‘spice’ up your family supper with these fantastic ‘Curry Coconut Fish Parcels’ from BBC Good Food.  A quick, easy recipe, using foil parcels to gently steam and infuse tilapia with curry paste, coconut and lime. Serving atop a bed of basmati rice and finishing with a garnish of finely chopped chillies.

We love this recipe here at The Saucy Fish Co, because it uses one of our favourite methods of cooking. Steaming fresh fish in foil bags is a healthy, simple and beautifully flavoursome way of preparing fish. So we hope you enjoy this beautiful dish, not only for its taste and simplicity but its health benefits too!

A tasty treat to celebrate the Edinburgh Fringe

It’s back! The world’s largest arts Festival, the Edinburgh Fringe, is set to open at the end of this week.

One of Britain’s finest festivals, the Fringe is renowned for showcasing the ‘freshest’ new acts in comedy, theatre and music. Hence it seems fitting that you enjoy a ‘fresh’ fish dish this evening!

So may we suggest a bowl of ‘Cullen Skink’ – a traditional Scottish soup made of smoked haddock, potatoes and onions.  This creamy, full-flavoured soup originates from the Moray area of Scotland. And though the soup may not have the most appetising name, it is sure to be the perfect dish for a family meal.

Here is the recipe from one of our favourite Scottish Food Bloggers – ‘Foodie Quine’. Enjoy!

Flavours of the World – Germany

Sunday saw the end of the World Cup and Germany lifting the trophy aloft.  After an international feast of football, we’ve found a great recipe to celebrate their success and provide you with a feast of food!

Trout is widely used in Germany and this recipe from About.com is a popular simple dish.

Clean and dry a full trout before covering in flour and salt.  Brown the fish for 5-10mins in butter before replicating on the other side.  The fish is cooked when you’re able to flake it easily and it’s no longer pink.

After you’ve taken the trout from the pan it’s time for a simple sauce.  Heat the lemon juice and butter with a splash of Worcester sauce and salt before coating the trout.

Serve with boiled potatoes and a sprinkling of parsley for a very German dish.

Celebrate Independence Day with tasty Tuna Burgers

Happy Independence Day to all our American Saucy fans!

As a nation of burger lovers we’ve got a recipe with a twist to help you celebrate Independence Day in style.

Tuna burgers are a great alternative to beef and are just as juicy. This recipe from Jamie Oliver got our mouths watering and best of all it couldn’t be simpler.

Simply mix the short list of ingredients together in a food processor or finely chop and then mix by hand.  Once you’ve made the mix into burger shapes, let them set in the fridge and fire up the barbie or grill!

Cook for two minutes on each side and serve on buns with some salad and ketchup.

Alternatively head down to your nearest Giant Food stores and pick up some Saucy Fish from the seafood cabinet.
