Paprika Octopus

  • 3 Octopus <Cleaned> (c.200g each)
  • 1 large Potato
  • 2 tsp Capers
  • 1 tbsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 2x 25g Butter
  • 25ml Extra Virgin Rape Seed Oil

Cut the tentacles off from the octopus. You can keep the hoods in the freezer and use them in Paella or a seafood linguine. Cut the tentacles into pairs and leave to one side for a second.

In a bowl mix together the paprika, garlic, salt and pepper and leave to one side. Peel the potato and cut into small chunks and boil until mashable.

Mash the potato and add 25g of the butter to the mash along with the capers. Mix it all together and leave to one side in the same pan with a lid on to keep warm.

In the microwave melt the other 25g of butter and then add to the paprika mix along with the oil. Finally in a wok in a little oil stir fry the octopus for about 2 minutes. Add the paprika and oil mix and coat the tentacles.

Put the mash onto a plate and top with the paprika coated octopus. Grab a knife and fork and dive in!

Super Easy Moules Mariniere

Moules Mariniere

  • 1kg Brancaster Mussels
  • ½ Packet Potts Moules Mariniere Sauce

Honestly it cannot be simpler or faster. In a wok or large saucepan, cook the mussels in a dry pan until they’re all open (discard any that don’t open). Drain the excess liquid then add the sauce. Stir to make sure it’s all coated. Serve with some crusty bread straight from the pan.

Fish @ The Guineas Food Festival 2013

The Food Festival
The Food Festival

Last weekend saw the first ever Guinea Food Festival in The Guineas Centre, with food from around the world and music covering all four days of the festival the atmosphere in the centre was brilliant!  On Thursday we at Fish Burwell had smoked mackerel tastings, followed up on Friday with our fabulous Honey Roasted Hot Smoked Salmon, if you’ve never tried it get yourself some and make Honey Roast Salmon Linguine.  Finally on Saturday morning we brought a little taste of the seaside to Newmarket with our shellfish bar outside of the shop.
