What do they sell in Keighley?

I used to go to this one in uttley on Skelton road

Decent stuff

It was on look north a couple of weeks back selling deep fried mince pies

 

The one next to the volunteers in town is supposed to be the cheapest in the country

Plaice and hake were sometimes on the chipper menu when I was a kid. Both are cracking to eat.

Hake is a very tasty fish. Generally about half the price of cod and tastes better.

 

Missus made a halibut stew on Christmas eve. It was delicious.

There'd always be haddock and hake on the menu in the chippies I used to go to around Blackpool, cod was on too but most of the locals I met seemed to prefer the haddock and wince slightly when discussing the worms in cod.

 

Quality was hit and miss, there was certainly a nice one in Thornton (probably the one Saint Billinge mentioned). The hake was cheaper and usually rather tasty.


I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

Hake in Spain is Merluza, a popular and tasty fish. I just can't imagine it wrapped in batter from a chippy though. A bit too classy for that surely?

Whether its Cod or Haddock should it be skin on or off. Here in W Yorks skin off is the norm but on my regular visits to Whitby unless you request otherwise its served with skin.

I used to frequent a shop that sold Spanish food, including tins of Piquillo peppers stuffed with prawns and hake. Tasty.

I would quite like to try battered Monk fish, but it would have to be nice batter.

Tilapia and Basa are quite nice and mild, along with Hoki which I think is a big fat Cod from New Zealand.

Tilapia and Basa are being passed off as Cod or Haddock by unscrupulous chip shop owners wanting to boost their profit. They are sort of the horse of the fish world. :P

According to our chippy proprietor the price of haddock has gone through the roof.  He stopped selling it replacing it with cod, a big no-no around Leeds.  He will now provide it only if you ask for it and are prepared to pay a premium, and he's not alone. Apparently the Russians have cut the quota for haddock.  this is bad news for those of us from the West Riding who prefer haddock to cod.  I wonder what pollock tastes like?

I don't know if this is in any way reassuring but on Hessle Road today cod and haddock fillets were selling for the same price, one and a half kilos for a tenner.

I had bacalhau (dried cod) in Madrid a couple of years ago, in a stew with potatoes, it was delicious.

There was a time in when chippies in and around Leeds would offer halibut in batter, like cod or haddock, but I haven't seen it for a long time. I've only ever had halibut once and I recall it having a really meaty taste.

I remember as a kid fetching hake from the chip shop for my Grandma in Barrow.
One of the nicest pieces of fried fish I have ever had was Skate, I had that in a fish and chip shop in Ramsgate.

I did A Level Biology and one of our school old boys once caught a really big skate off the South Wales coast. He brought it in to be dissected to see what was in its stomach (to get hints what bait to use in future). The thing was an absolute monster and stuck out about a foot from each side of a lab sink.

 

I can't remember exactly what was found in its stomach but I remember it was nothing remarkable. I wasn't in the lab when it was cut up.

When I lived there I stuck to white pudding suppers.

 

Also it wasn't salt and vinegar that you had on but salt and sauce and you weren't AppleScript it on they did it for you

Having lived in North Wales for over 30 years I often take the wife to Knaresborough just to get fish chips and mushy peas from Drakes, absolutely spot on. Also they do proper fish cakes - a piece of fish between two slices of potato and deep fried in batter. Some thing was a real treat when growing up in the west riding.
