Stornoway Fish Stall

We are home but there still plenty of Scottish photos to post.  These are from the fish stall, Stornoway Saturday market.


  1. Did you ask what those fish third from last are? I don't recognise them and I would as they have big eyes. Not Ling. I would have bought a couple and if a fillet off the first was rubbish made a fish stew with mussels and had I the money one of those magnificent lobsters. An onion, a few potatoes and I would have been in culinary heaven. I do it quite often. I drop the cheap horrible stuff like Ling into a pot with raw onion and potatoes then make a quick soup with the juice and deboned rubbish fish. Wonderful it is with cream and lumpy potatoes.
    PS. I usually fillet and take the eye bones out then press Ling between kitchen towel and loads of newspaper. Same with Dogfish. It makes a good base but is disgusting on it's own.

    1. I didn't have the nerve to interrupt his selling for frivolous questions. He was, I'm pleased to say, very busy. I would love to live somewhere where the fish is fresh.

  2. I'm not much of a fish/seafood eater, but when I do I want it fresh and it doesn't get any fresher than this.

  3. Good cod, man... there's something fishy going on here!
