as much as i HATE valentine's day with its artificial commercialised celebration of "lurv" i am not one to let a perfect excuse to cook a specially indulgent meal pass me by..
that's why you could have found me queing in the late saturday morning hours at brighton and newhaven fishermen sale point in hove lagoon.
i wish i had my camera with me, for there were a couple of proud looking boats docked nearby that looked pretty dramatic on the metallic grey background provided courtesy of an otherwise dull february day.
i bought the following:
1 lobster, alive and kicking, for the indulgent meal
1 nice fat gurnard
2 nice medium squids
2 nice fat rainbow trouts
for more normal everyday meals.
total expense: a tenner (£ 10) for the lobster and £ 9.37 for the rest of the fish.
reports to follow.
