40 fish skewers and the catwalk alternative

Hi Antonia

Thanks for your call about the 40 fish skewers for your BBQ. There are quite a few alternatives.
If you want to stick to scallops, peeled prawns and monkfish, it’s going to cost between £115 and £200 all in (including delivery). This is for a skewer with 85g of 100% edible  fish on it.

The cheaper option is not “worse fish”. It’s the same fish but it’s generally smaller.
Eg, the £115 option has two “medium” prawns (our medium is a pretty good size).
For about twice as much, you could have a “WOW!”-sized prawn.
Same goes for scallops and monk.

Personally, I’d go for the cheaper option because the skewer will look more like a skewer and less like a catwalk. Two smaller prawns occupy more skewer space than one WOW prawn.
Give me a call and I’ll talk you through it.

YOU SHOULD ALSO consider our cheeks and misshapes section. There are many kinds of fish on there which are absolutely perfect for skewers. I reckon you could come in for about £80 on this option.
