What’s on your plate? Scottish Shellfish

Posted in: Crannog, Restaurant, Seafood

One of the things we’re most proud of at Crannog Restaurant is the wealth of beautiful shellfish and seafood that’s available in Scotland.   The pure, plankton-rich waters around Scotland’s coast and inlets produce delicious, high quality seafood that is not only enjoyed on our shores, but exported all over the world.

This season our customers have been enjoying mussels from local lochs such as Loch Nan Uamh and Loch Eil, scallops from Islay, langoustines and crab from Mallaig, and lobster from Eigg (we had one lobster recently that weighed in at 3.5kg!).

Our chefs believe the quality of our Scottish shellfish speaks for itself, so more often than not we serve our shellfish simply: langoustines with garlic butter, or mussels in a classic white wine sauce.
