Delighted to report that we’ve just had the most fantastic halilbut delivered. It was landed on the west coast of Scotland yesterday morning. A few hours later – after just a little bit of negotiating – we said ‘yes’ to the most expensive single fish we have ever bought – we paid a nice round £1,000. It weighs 80kgs (so all you fish professionals can go work that out). It’s 66 inches nose to tail and boasts a magnificent sheen and two beautiful, accusing, eyes. Now how do we lift it onto the filleting bench…?
