If you’re planning your menu for the first Quarter of the year, let us introduce you to Skrei cod.
– It’s the most beautiful cod you’ll taste
– It’s only in season for three months of the year (January – March) with an 8 week catch window when the cod return to where they were hatched to lay their eggs.
– In reality Skrei Cod is mostly available on menus in the UK in February and March.
– It is certified 100% sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council
– It’s provenance tells a fantastic story to help bring personality to your menu
– It is slightly more expensive than Icelandic cod, but we think it would make a fantastic seasonal special.
Every winter, migratory cod swim from the Barents Sea to their spawning grounds near the Lofoten Islands, off the north coast of Norway. This is 200 miles inside the arctic circle.
Their epic journey means they arrive in prime condition which yields a very special taste and texture. The fish are all fully-grown, in pristine condition and only from designated grounds.
The Skrei are hand line caught by Artisanal Fishermen.
As well as the great taste they are a great source of nutrients being very high in Omega 3.
Skrei® is an entirely seasonal delicacy, now available to discerning customers in limited supply.
James Knight of Mayfair are proud to have been the first fishmonger to bring Skrei cod to the UK back in 2008 and since then the legend has grown as in-the-know clients have managed to get it on to their menus with great industry acclaim.
