Seafood Recipe from our Head Chef


Our Head Chef Kevin at Loch Ness Clansman is famed for his seafood recipes.Last month he performed on the main stage at Eden Court Theatre for The Highland Food and Drink Festival which we already wrote about in our Blog.

Since that appearance we have had numerous requests for his fish recipes he prepared on that day.

So here we have two fishy dishes that are easy to prepare and will delight your family and guests at any dinner party.
