New lines from M&J Seafood

New lines from M&J Seafood

Fresh Cornish Sprats have been added by M&J Seafood as a sustainable alternative to whitebait.

This fast-growing species, generally less than 15cm long, moves in enormous shoals, often pursued by mackerel or mullet, and is caught in waters close to the shore.

The firm-fleshed, oil-rich fish come from a fishery currently under MSC pre-assessment and are described as having an earthy, strong flavour.

MSC-certified Canadian Prawns are also available, caught by in-shore day boats in the waters of the North Atlantic.

The prawns, supplied in 1kg or 2.5kg packs, are cooked, peeled and frozen onshore to ensure a sweeter flavour and softer texture than double-frozen prawns.

Skin-on, boneless portions of fresh Mahi Mahi are also available from the company, supplied vacuum-packed in 150-180g or 180-210g sizes. The Mahi Mahi fish, native to the waters around Hawaii and whose name means "strong strong", is described as having a flaky texture and sweet taste.

The Mahi Mahi is sourced from the Indian Ocean and, due to its healthy stocks and short-lived nature, is thought to be a good sustainable option.
