|a shoal of herring|
Channel 4 have put all 3 of the Hugh's Fish Fight programmes on 4oD, which means they are available to view over the next 3 months, if you missed them on TV or want to see them again.
I did fancy a bit of salmon on Friday, so I went for the organic option from Waitrose's fish counter. It was a lot paler than the salmon I am used to, and I am glad to say, less fatty, so definitely a pleasant experience. However, this does not seem to have been a particularly sustainable or healthy choice according to this article in the Guardian.
After watching the Hugh's Fish Fight programmes I shall see if I can purchase some mackerel or herring fillets. I agree these fish tastes good, but I am one of those people who is put off by the bones. Growing up in North Germany my dad ate a lot of herring in his younger day and pickled herring for New Year's Eve was a delicacy either as Rollmops or as a herring and beetroot salad. I've not been one for carrying on that tradition, I'm afraid.
