A Box Full of Fishes

My first 'fishinabox' order has arrived!  It was delivered in a polystyrene box filled with crushed ice and came complete with a recipe suggestion for the kippers.  There was more fish in my box than I had visualised when I ordered it, I must get a handle on metric weights! 

How exciting!
So halibut, kippers and sardines - the fish looks and smells lovely and fresh and I can't wait to cook and eat it.  We'll start with the halibut fillets...

I've spent the last hour on the web looking for a suitable recipe.  The one chosen came from the BBC Food site (not to be confused with the BBC Good Food site): roasted halibut on a spring onion rosti with sorrel beurre blanc.  

The joy of this recipe is that the early stages can be carried out in advance and then the finishing stage takes only 15 minutes.  This means that I can have everything prepared and then finish off the dish when the Handyman comes in from the garden (which is pretty late in the evening whilst he's engrossed in his latest project)...so I'm off to start cooking.  I'll post the recipe and some photos of the finished dish tomorrow...wish me luck!

That looks like a delivery to get really excited about! Luckily there is a fantastic fish monger in Chorlton, otherwise I'd be tempted to try it out myself!

Your very lucky to have a good local fishmonger - they seem to be rarer than good local butchers or bakers.
