Perhaps Lockwood Smith is more fussy than most people about what he puts in his mouth, but if I were him, I wouldn’t feel at all perturbed about having to swallow some dead fish. I actually quite enjoy it.
Perhaps he’s not trying the right kind. Let’s help him out: here are ten ways I like to do it. Feel free to add your own.
1. Whitebait fritters
2. Anchovies on anything
4. Bouillabaisse at a Marseilles cafe
5. Blackened redfish
6. Salmon from a sushi bar
7. Snapper on a pan, five minutes out of the sea
8. Bluff oysters as they come
9. Crayfish any way you like, except with steak
