Bank Holiday Inspiration
From seafood charcuterie to Al Fresco dining, here's our top 5 favourite ways to spend the Bank Holiday weekend in foodie heaven
Entertain with a seafood charcuterie for a relaxed gathering that's low effort but maximum impact.
Smoked Cornish mackerel and beetroot canapes - spread a little crème fraiche over a rye cracker, add pickled beetroot (chopped into small pieces) on top and adorn with shredded smoked mackerel.
Lobster bites - our lobster comes pre-cooked and ready to eat (or re-heat). Perfect to mix with a saffron mayonnaise and pop on top a toasted sourdough slice or French bread stick.
Smoked salmon rolls - mix chives and lemon into crème cheese and wrap up your tasty bites in our Cornish smokehouse smoked salmon
Fresh oysters accompanied with a selection of lemon slices, caviar and tabasco make for a spectacular addition to your perfect platter.
2.On the grill
Entertain and impress with a chilled Doom Bar Cornish pale ale around your grill.
Sear your 21 day aged West country sirloin steaks for 2 mins on each side in a hot area of your BBQ, then cook it in a cooler area of your BBQ for an additional 3 mins (rare), 5 mins (med/rare), 8 mins plus (for medium to well done).
Our pre-cooked lobster comes pre split so just needs re-heating through for that BBQ chargrilled flavour. Add a little parsley to a knob of butter and pop it on the top of your lobster and BBQ for 5-8 mins (or until the meat is heated through).
Scallops - add a little butter or olive oil into the scallop shell and BBQ for 5 mins.
Smoked salmon or smoked haddock and cream cheese sandwiches
Lobster or crab fresh rolls – simple add a little lemon ketchup
Find our new (ready to eat) octopus salad, squid salad, anchovies in garlic oil and mixed seafood salad pots in our Cornish Larder - and all for under £10
4.Al fresco evening dining
Breaking bread and sharing food with great friends and loved ones – what could be better.
Here’s our Spanish paella recipe to enjoy with a pitcher of Sangria over your weekend
5.Laid back lunches
Picking Cornish King crab meat with friends over a crisp white wine makes for a great laid back lunch – just remember the napkins! Our Newlyn landed Cornish King Crab comes pre-cooked and is perfect served with warm, fresh bread, butter and a side of fresh mayonnaise. The claws are full of sweet white meat and make for a spectacular centrepiece.
