Finally hit up Billingsgate Fish Market! I’d wanted to go for years, but never mustered the strength to get up before 5am on a Saturday. We scored three lobsters, clams, a red snapper, oysters, smoked haddock, and a 3.5kg hake named Jake:
Dinner was, predictably, rather fish-focused. We started with fresh oysters.
Then toast topped with Gentlemen’s Relish, smoked haddock, baby spinach and poached eggs.
Next came a soup of hake, clams and chorizo.
After all of that, we actually didn’t have any room for the grilled lobsters! So it went into a lobster linguine lunch the following day (see my Instagram shot).
…but there is always room for dessert, aka my strawberry and passionfruit mini cheesecakes.
Next on the wishlist is Smithfield Market for fresh meat and poultry. Though that one opens for trading at 3am – gulp!
