During July and August approximately 45 million Brits will head to warmer climes to enjoy their summer holidays, with a large percentage of us heading to the Mediterranean. And with its countless golden sandy beaches, rolling countryside and not forgetting the amazing cuisine, full of fresh delicious seafood – we can see why!
So, with summer hols almost upon us – here’s our handy guide to our favourite types of fish you simply must try out while you’re abroad.
First up is sea bass. There are lots of species of sea bass but it’s the spotted, European variety that has become the superstar in restaurants around the world and it’s this popular Mediterranean fish which is used in Italian, Greek and Spanish cuisine. Sea bass is amazing grilled and we’d recommend going for a dish which serves the fish whole with refreshing slices of lemon or on a bed of couscous. If you’re anything like us, this will become your new summer favourite!
Next up is the fantastic Mediterranean tuna. Whether you are holidaying in France, Italy, Greece, Turkey or Spain, you will find loads of delicious fish dishes using this delish meaty fish. We say go for any recipe where you can enjoy a refreshing tomato salad – this accompanies the fresh and delicate taste of the tuna perfectly. And, remember – tuna steaks are best served medium rare! However, if you are planning on a staycation here in the UK, why not check out our delicious range of products, where you can enjoy fresh salmon, seasoned tuna steaks, smoked haddock, sea bass and cod – all from the comfort of your dining room, or (fingers crossed) – garden!
