It has been a bit damp and dismal for the last three days. Nothing to show for our wanders.
Thursday afternoon the Wet Fish van called and I made a bit of a whale of myself.
From left to right, a Haddock fillet, Arbroath Smokie, this is also Haddock. Scallops with roe. Thursday I had the scallops lightly steamed on a bed of brown rice flavoured with coriander, ginger and lemon zest. Friday it was the turn of the Haddock, grilled with mashed potato and Brocolli. The Smokie I had with bread and butter for breakfast yesterday. I should be bouncing around full of health and vitality but I’m feeling a bit off colour. Not blue more a sort of jaundiced yellow.
I suspect I’ve been eating too well. I have also managed to cook and consume a Ham Hock or Hough as they are called in Scotland. I boiled that for three hours then shredded the meat from it and made peas pudding. Great with malt vinegar but it does make for a windy night.
I am moving down the road five miles or so to Strontian for a couple of nights. I will then come back here as there are several things I’d have fun snapping if I’m lucky enough to get some early morning light to snap in.
Have a good week.
