Weaver Fish/Weever

Standard

It is difficult not to be scared of this one. I have (thankfully) yet to stand on one. I have seen many who have. A good sting to the foot and some more.
Until Friday I had never eaten one. My fishmonger, who is always right, said it was a nice fish to eat. As always, he was right. At an amazing £3 for the fish making two fillets, this was a fantastic buy. The best fishmongers in Devon (awarded by Devon Life), it’s not hard to see why.
I was also shown where the spines were, they are carefully hidden. Watch out if you catch one !
It is a great fish to cook with. I used flour egg breadcrumb to coat it. After frying it to colour, I finished it off in a hot oven. Perfection. Chips and mushy peas as an accompaniment.
I am defiantly buying this fish again.

Pitt Cue Mutton Fillet

Standard

Fillet of Mutton, now that sounds amazing. As with fillet of beef, less flavour more tenderness.
Boy was it tender, Farmer Phil Bond, maximum respect!
I used a meat rub recipe from the Pit Cue book. Our Library has the Pit Cue book, libraries rock! Fuck Cameron and his cronies shutting down libraries. This is not being done for your benefit, trust!
I added one of my chilis from the garden, used Demerara as we had run out of soft sugar, wet mustard instead of powder. It was pretty much the same gig though. I was very impressed with the result. The full recipe is in the book.
I used finger touch to get medium rare/rare. The result was Bang on! The more you do this the more accurate you will get.
Broad beans tomato celery spring onion cous cous on the side, seasoned with salt and pepper and a dash of Lemon.
