Flying Fish Seafoods is proud to supply high quality fish to distinctive restaurants and hotels throughout the South and West of England. Our pledge is simple. We source the finest and freshest fish directly from Cornwall's best fishermen and deliver it straight to your door. Beautiful Handline Pollock One of the easiest ways for you and your business to live a sustainable life, is to start by "˜eating the seasons'. Eat the seasons, refers to making the most of what nature has to offer at particular times of the year. There are many good reasons to start doing this, it reduces the energy and associated CO2 emissions needed to grow and transport the food that you eat. It also supports our economy and it helps you and your business avoid paying a premium for food that is scarcer or has travelled a long way. You will also find that once you start to eat the seasons that the food you eat is much tastier and more nutritious! Until recently pollock was a fish universally treated with disdain. But now it is appearing in very smart restaurants, it's pollock all the way! It's white, it's flaky, it looks the part and it definitely eats the part. Some chefs will argue that Pollock needs a little help, however if you buy handline Cornish Pollock you'll soon discover that this gem of a fish has a distinctive flavour due to its rich diet of bait fish and crustaceans. Top Tip Try to buy handline where you can. Why buy Alaskan pollock when our shores are teaming with this lovely fish!
