Get Your Fish Fix In Newcastle This Good Friday
Tucking into a fishy feast is the Good Friday tradition we all know and love. We've rounded up seven spots to kickstart the Easter celebrations in NE1...
Saltwater Fish Company / 21 at Home
The friendly faces at Saltwater Fish Company have always been on hand to provide us with the best produce, expert advice and fish-friendly wines to help serve up a storm in the kitchen, and this Good Friday is no different. Unfortunately, while the retail counters in Fenwick Foodhall will remain closed until April 12, seafood lovers can still order the goods from the 21 at Home website. While you're mooching around the website, be sure to check out their seriously delicious kit-form dining options. Get crafty in the kitchen and replicate some of the best bits from 21 Hospitality Group’s restaurants. Choose from three-course feast weekly menus, Sunday lunch boxes, afternoon tea treats or in true Good Friday style, their Saltwater Fish Pie from the 'essentials' menu. This tasty dish is packed full of flavour and is most definitely a seafood lovers dream. Salmon, smoked haddock, prawns and cod, topped with buttery duchesse potato. Delicious!
Get crafty in the kitchen this Good Friday with Umai Mi’s DIY Home Bao Kits. It couldn’t be simpler, choose your protein (in Good Friday style, we’re thinking the fried fish or juicy prawns) and then select your favourite sauce. All kits come with a list of instructions, cooking methods, greaseproof paper and a ‘Umai Mi Girl’ printed onto a card. Not looking to cook? No worries. Order one of your Umai Mi favourites online for collection or delivery and enjoy it from the comfort of your own home.
For fresh fish and a friendly face, head to Chirton Fisheries in the Grainger Market. The team are renowned in NE1 for their locally sourced sea fish, crustacean and freshwater goodies. Bag yourself 600g of their tasty boneless haddock for just £13.20 and whirl up a fishy treat for the whole family this Good Friday. We’re thinking mushy peas, perfect crunchy chips and a squeeze of lemon. Sounds good, right?
Sushi Me Rollin’
Sushi lovers, listen up! Thanks to Deliveroo, your fish fix is sorted this Good Friday. Our pals at Sushi Me Rollin’ are delivering the goods - choose from all of your favourites including kimchi tuna, seared salmon, prawn katsu and so much more. Vegan? No worries, you’re covered! The menu is packed with a ton of vegan-friendly options including their yasai roll, nigiri inari and tons more. Go on, browse the menu, we know you want to.
Dobson & Parnell at Home
Go all out this Good Friday and order in a three-course dinner from our pals at Dobson & Parnell. Their at-home menus are bursting with flavour and packed with tons of amazing fish options for you to tuck into. For starter, go for the North seafish-cake, tartare and pickled lemon before treating your taste buds to their roast fillet of salmon, fish stew and saffron potatoes. Last, but not least, the dessert. The millionaire’s banoffee pavlova has caught our eye. Now, it may not contain fish, but it’s still sure to go down a treat. Oh, and don’t forget to check out their Easter Sunday menu too - you won’t regret it!
The friendly folk at Lindsay Bros have been serving us Geordies with the best range of seafood for over 90 years. Whether you’re looking to keep it traditional or mix things up with a fancy recipe this Good Friday, the experts at this Grainger Market Fishmongers are on hand to help. Choose from a fine selection of sea fish, shellfish and freshwater fish and cook up something extra special this Easter.
Clayton Street Chippy
Let’s be honest, you can’t beat a chippy tea on Good Friday, can you? Clayton Street Chippy in the heart of Newcastle are providing us Geordie folk with the goods this year. Think succulent cod wrapped in a crunchy batter, fluffy chips and your go-to side or sauce. Are you a mushy peas, gravy or curry kind of person? Let us know on Instagram by tagging in @NewcastleNE1
