Angelfish Fishcakes – all three variations marked down.

Our favourite artisan, Joris, has made these two new products especially for us for the festive season
Snoek balls with a macadamia flour crust (gluten free!).  These are super moreish!
Trout Gravadlax – fresh Rainbow trout dry-cured in the traditional Scandinavian method with a blend of sugar, salt and dill.  Rinsed before slicing.  Luxury food at its finest!
