Sea Fish Platter


Sea Fish PlatterCooking in fish restaurants 364 days of the year may seem like a lot, but the produce on our doorstep is so good that we love to have some on Christmas Day as well.

This platter can be filled with the fish and shellfish you like to eat or can get your hands on. Ours here includes freshly cooked Amble lobster, North Shields dressed crab, smoked salmon from Swallows of Seahouses, pickled herrings, Scottish blue shell mussels cooked marinara-style, panko breaded fish fingers, prawns and crawfish, and Holy Island oysters, served with a selection of great sauces – all of them based around a good quality mayonnaise.
