Now that is a very welcome post, so you take care my man. The best of fish comes from Stornoway of course and hope it is accepted as being superior to fish from other regions! Mind you it could have been caught off Iceland by a foreigner and trans shipped in SY.

I'll second that, Donald. Ye cannae keep a good man down. He must have got his telescope set up just right by the surgeon.
Good to see you back on line Angus. Best wishes to Frances and yourself.

Thanks for your kind words and wishes, gents. Aye, the Lewis fish passes muster, no question. Having said that, I have a lot of good banter with our excellent local fish supplier, Pieroni of Ayr, when comparing the relative qualities of our vastly superior Southern fare with that of our Northern neighbours - despite the fact much of their stock is from Lewis! I buy their Lewis mussels at £4/kg and make moules marinere with cream garlic and garlic - lovely
