Haddock

104 posts in this topic

Had fish chips and double mushies in the wetherby whaler in Wakefield the other day. It's where all the car dealerships are. Most acceptable and great service. The woman behind the counter started ladling the mushies on and told me to say when: paradise.

Most definitely haddock in all Wetherby Whalers

Also acceptable, assuming you use 'oil as dialect for hole.

In Scotland it's fish bar

And the fish and chips are to be avoided at all costs

Pudding supper every time

I went into a fish and chip shop in the centre of Inverness and asked for " fish and chips twice please"

The guy looked at me and said " you want fish AND chips?"

"Yes"

He looked me up and down and obviously thought no wonder he's fat. He turned to the other customers and they all looked at me askance.

He put the fish and chips into the wrappers and then started doling out more chips.

" what are you doing?" I asked,

Him " giving you the chips you asked for"

Me "But you've given me the chips"

Him "No I haven't"

Me "Yes, you have they are in the wrapper"

Him "No, that's fish"

Me " but there's chips in there"

Him " yes that's fish"

Me " look in that wrapper you have put fish AND chips"

Him "no that's just a fish supper"

Me "that's what I wanted"

Him "well why did you ask for fish AND chips"

Me " cos I want fish with chips"

Him " well just ask for fish in future"

God knows how you order fish without chips.

I don't know a single person who has ever had the patience to find out if the Magpie actually is any good or not. I just look at the length of the queues and think 'madness! I'm too hungry for a wait that long'.

 

I hadn't been to The Magpie in years owing to the queues, but I went there one evening a few weeks ago when I was working in Whitby. The fish and chips were jolly good and the service was good too. Out of season and on a week day evening may be the time to go.

I was one of the younger people there and I am not young.

 best local to us fish and chips is millbridge chippy on leeds rd just lower down than golden fish as you drop down into heckmondwike swan lights, (haddock too) cod is bigger chunks and a harsher flavour. and am told by a mate who runs a chippy cod is a very dirty fish and if you hold an uncooked fillit up to a light you can see small worms still in the fish as its a bottom feeder.

  golden fish is nice fish but rank chips as their all bits not propper nice big well cooked ones like millbridge.

 

  for a trip out try trenshers in whitby by the roundabout and main carpark were all bikers hang out on a sunny sunday. parsley sauce is super.massive fish and a special coleslaw thats to die for.home baked t cakes/baps. too.

Pretty much any white fish that ends up on the table is a bottom feeder but your mate's right, cod is particularly wormy.

Called there some years ago and actually waited patiently in the long queue and worth it for the tasty meal.

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.

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.

used to be the common belief in leeds that cod had worms in it .  you could get it  and it was always cheaper than haddock  but no ###### wanted it

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.
