Our first taste of Al fresco dining, enjoying the touch of Spring in the air over the weekend. This was a lunch inspired by a walk past the Hackney Fin & Flounder fishmongers on Sunday. I couldn’t resist picking up a batch of Scottish clams, which were cooked in white wine, garlic and fresh parsley, then tossed in Rice Noodles with Olive Oil and more chopped parsley. This was served with a Raw (Massaged) Kale, Sprouts, Orange and Toasted Pumpkin Seed Salad courtesy of my dear wife Nicky Clinch, along with a glass of the crisp Chardonnay which went in with the clams. What a treat! Fin & Founder is well worth a visit – they’re a top notch local fishmonger based on Broadway Market in E8, with a policy of sourcing and supplying sustainable and line-caught seafood.
