This fellow was probably happily swimming in Chew Valley Lake yesterday - and tonight he's our supper!

So so fresh ... bought at a local organic/health food shop that supplies local fish too. We've only recently discovered this place; only to find out that they're shutting down soon (and hence this fish - which could easily feed 4 people - cost all of £2.50! Yes, we bought another one to freeze...).

Its such a shame for this shop - "hard times" she said... if only they were at the other end of the street where all the young couples and families into their fresh, low food miles, organic, healthy food, shop; they would have done brisk business. Instead they were at the end of the street where the locals didn't appreciate fresh fish from just a few miles down the road and instead thought McDonalds was a decent meal ... so sad ...

Still, we had a fab dinner of very fresh fish seasoned with just salt, pepper, a bit of lemon juice and lots of bay leaves ... mmmm... yummy ...
