As the weather warms up and our appetites move away from the heavy comfort foods of winter, seafood comes to the fore, and there’s no better place to find the freshest seafood than the Commercial Fishermans Co-Operative, located at Wickham and Swansea. Straight from the sea to you – there really is no fresher way to grab your seafood unless you catch it yourself! This month we have an inspiring Spring Seafood dish straight from the co-op to you – the perfect start to a season (or two) of seafood!
