Fish on a Dish

To celebrate Mr TH's return from New York, I raided the freezer for this...


It's our very last piece of smoked fish from Richardson's Smoke House in Orford. We visited Orford a few months ago & stumbled across the smokehouse completely by chance. There was so much choice that we decided to try out lots of different fish. (We also bought a smoked ham hock that turned out to be absolutely delicious)

We proudly thought we'd discovered some hidden gem but when, on our return home, I looked it up on the Internet we found out that Nigel Slater had got there before us...oh well!

The fish is so wonderful that all I did was steam it.

A return trip to Orford is called for...This time we'll combine it with a visit to Orford Ness too.

Orford Ness is weird and magical. Try to get the first crossing and race ahead to have it to yourself. There was an unexploded bomb on the beach the day we went out.

Ooh, lucky you. We holiday in Suffolk every year and we love Orford ... the village, the Ness, and the smokehouse! Welcome home to Mr TH :D

My daughter and her bloke live in a flat in London - but HE has built a smoker in his friend's garden down the street. Now my HUSBAND wants to build a smoker...
Can't we just go in for 'passive smoking' and buy lovely stuff from Orford like you and Nigel??!!

That fish looks very good and great to know you can freeze smoked fish.

You still discovered it all by yourselves - I think that is worth something!

By the way - I tried to respond to your comment on my blog and received a bounce message:
"Recipient address rejected: Access denied "

You might want to look into it - that's the second time it's happened to me.

This seemed the best way of getting in touch..

That sounds fabulous, but a little far to go for us! However there is a very nice local smokery and they have just opened up a shop in Lochgilphead in time for lots of autumnal smoked goodies. Orford Ness sounds very Scottish!

As a Suffolk girl (now in Cambridge) I have been a fan of Richardson's for many years now. Next time you go buy the smoked stilton. It absolutely rocks!
The suffolk coast is such a nice place to holiday, we went this year and had a lovely improvised lunch from Richardsons and the deli in Orford. Happy memories.
