You will prepare a number of species of fish and shellfish and more to taste. The day comes with a recipe pack to take away.

Join us for an early morning escorted visit of the market with our team looking at species ID and quality assessment, followed by a smoked fish breakfast.
 

Our smoking expert - retired fishmonger - Ken Condon - will talk about cold smoking of fish, followed by a demonstration (and an opportunity to try it yourself) on how to slice a side of smoked salmon.


There will be a short talk about technical aspects of preserving fish and preparation of seafood for smoking followed by a hands-on seafood preparation session.


After coffee we then move onto HOT smoking seafood and these will be served with a number of dressings and sauces.


A number of dishes will be prepared as part demonstration and part hands on - DEPENDING ON AVAILABILITY ON THE DAY, these could include:
Gravadlax (salmon)
Sousing (mackerel)
Rollmops (herrings)
Ceviche (Razor clams or scallops)
Escabeche (seabass)

You will create SPICY SMOKED FISH COUSCOUS for lunch along with other dishes prepared during the day.
