Fresh Sustainable Seafood Recipes

We’re encouraging everyone to support their local fishermen during the current lockdown and beyond and therefore thought it only appropriate we also share a couple of delicious recipes with you. 

Our friends at Mara Fish Bar & Deli, based up in Corrie, have kindly shared two recipes with us for you to try at home. Both include readily available ingredients, including langoustine and lobster which can be purchased weekly from local creeler, Ian (see below).

Arran Lobster with Wild Garlic Butter and Prosciutto.

Arran Langoustine Bisque.

Remember when this is all over to visit Mara for yourselves and let them cook you up some delicious, fresh and sustainable seafood dishes!

Fresh seafood is available weekly on Arran. Creel fisherman Ian Cusick – who fishes for Skipness based ‘Creelers’ – is taking weekly orders for all his usual catch. Langoustines are available per kg (£13.50 Mixed / £15.50 v. large), Crab (£5kg) and Lobster (£18.50). All orders must be in by Thursday’s at 6pm for that weekend collection/delivery – call 01880 760 378 to prepay and order. Tim & Fran will get back to you asap if you leave your name and number on the answerphone.
