A current supper time favourite of ours is posh fish fingers. Fresh Hake, cut into large, chunky fingers, dipped into seasoned flour, beaten egg then Panko breadcrumbs with a scattering of black sesame seeds. Gently shallow fry in veg oil. And here’s the dilemma. If you’re having a guest join you for supper who happens to be from central London should one serve this on a bed of crushed, minted marrow fat peas or, our preference, tinned chip shop style mushy peas?
What will they think? Is this about keeping up standards or just going for good old fashioned Northerner comfort food? We don’t want to upset anyone!
Nose: crisp, fresh, lemongrass. Mouth: gentle love bite.
