Choosing wonderful fresh fish for Easter

We noticed that lots of people are a little hesitant about buying and cooking fresh fish.

Sometimes this is caused by a bad experience or just the fear itself. I hope our tips will help eliminate any reservations you may have about fish and will open up a world of wonderful tastes and smells you have never experienced before.

  • Strong smell means that the fish is off and is not as fresh as it should be.
If the gills are brown in colour then the fish is not fresh, if the gills are red and vibrant the fish is fresh.
Fresh fish is covered in a thin layer of moist slime that's clear in colour, uncongealed and covers the fish smoothly. Any clouding or strong odour from this indicated the fish is not fresh.
  • Scales should be strong and firm.
  • If you leave finger print impressions on the fish after touching it, it means the fish is fairly old.
  • Eyes should be bright and shiny looking with a clear difference between the white and the black.

At Galor Personal chef services we use only the freshest fish and shellfish from the best suppliers in London
