HATT'S THE WAY I LIKE IT: YEP, ANOTHER POST IN PRAISE OF THE FISHATTOLLAH.

I realised today that, although I have mentioned Steve Hatt more time than a Yorkshireman uses a teabag, I had never shown any pictures.

So, here is the man himself ( Stev Hatt Jr, that is The orginal Mr Hatt having died a few years back) standing by what is, without questions, the finest selection of fresh fish on offer in London.

Today, I wandered in at lunchtime to buy a few bits and bobs to be greeted by the pleasing waft of smoke as they prepared their kippers. The smell has attached itself to me like the most gorgeous cologne ( form an orderly queue ladies ) and I suspect I shall smell of smoke for days. Which is, I guess, better than my usual reek of gin & regret.

With fish this good it is a crime to do too much to it, so I layered a baking parchment with some strips of wild salmon tail, strips of halibut, lemon slices and dill along with two thick and meaty scallops and sealed in a parcel. Cooking for twenty minutes resulted in beautiful medium cooked flesh with the most fabulous juices.

Little to add, but I thank the lord every day that I work within 5 minutes of The Essex Rd and one of London's greatest culinary treasures.

Excellent. A good fishmonger in Islington. Where on Essex Road is it and do you know the opening times?
Thanks very much.

Steve H is half way along The Essex Rd between Islington Green and The Cannonbury Rd on the South side of the St

if you are coming from Upper St, walk towards Highbury & Islington and, when you get to The Angel Mangal, cut down Cross St. Steve Hatt is at the bottom next to james Elliot ( an excellent butcher )

There is a standard greengrocer between the two that, because of the butcher and fishmonger does carry some less usual stuff. It does mean, you can do your whole shop for supper without going to the supermarkets
