With one of the busiest days of the year for people buying and eating fish fast approaching, The Fish Shop in Union Hall is hosting an “A-fish-ionado Open Day” this Friday, 24th February. 

The Open Day runs from 9.30am until 5pm and at 12.30pm and 3.15pm, the 2017 BIM Young Fishmonger of the Year (Independent Seafood Specialist), Stephen Hurley and Conor Sheridan of the Glandore Bistro will tell visitors to The Fish Shop all they want and need to know about preparing and cooking fish.

Stephen says, “Many people enjoy seafood when dining out but are unsure how to prepare it at home – a good fishmonger can help customers with their selection and give easy to follow cooking tips.”  Stephen will talk about and show what fish are in season now, the importance of provenance and preparation and list the questions people should ask their fishmonger. 

Conor Sheridan of the Glandore Bistro will demonstrate how to cook a quick and easy everyday fish dinner and give tips on which fish to choose and how to cook it for a special occasion.
