Langoustines on the Thames

The Amity II spends most of its time fishing in the North Sea, but has spent the last few days in the rather tamer waters of the Thames. This fishing trawler and its captain Jimmy Buchan visited London to promote Scottish seafood, raise money for the Fishermen's Mission, and launch Buchan's autobiography. (He has already starred in the BBC series Trawlermen.)

It was hard to resist the opportunity to visit a trawler, and the promise of seafood tasting made it irresistible! The haddock and langoustines were both excellent; it's a great shame that British seafood is not highlighted in our shops and supermarkets in the way that Breton produce routinely is in Brittany.
