Fish market on the shores of the English Channel
• Fish Market on the shores of the English Channel
Every time I come to the fishing spots on the Sevastopol central market, I'm just amazed at the choice of the gifts of the Black Sea, presented for sale - on a good day a few species of small fresh fish, forbidden to catch turbot under the counter, shrimp mustache, well and frozen seas gifts of others in different types and quantities. Fish market in the town on the beach and does not smell ...
And then the choice is struck on the opposite shore of the Black Sea, in Istanbul, or here, in Normandy, on the shores of the English Channel.
By the way, the fish market, this can be called a stretch - the fish here, of course, not a few species, but in the total number of sold marine life it occupies a very modest place. Here is the right score dozens of species of shrimp and scallops, lobsters and crayfish, mussels, different kinds of crabs, all kinds of snails and of course, oysters. Oysters are generally as apples on the Sebastopol market - many surprisingly cheap - from half-Jewish apiece ...
The fish market in question is located in the town of Trouville, in the north of France. And like a small town, and the market just rynochek, but that's a choice ...
Only for the sake of the freshest seafood is to call in the coastal towns, if you are traveling to Normandy! By the way, on this photo is very well seen the ratio of fish to non-fish in this "fish" market
Shrimp. Their choice after the oysters, probably the biggest.
From small (which, however, larger than we sold Royal) to quite huge, the size of a small lobster!
Boiled blue lobster, huge shrimp and coastal crabs
The local crab. Taste significantly different from the Black Sea stone crab. By the way, I noticed that the restaurant is not the French eat only meat from massive claws, but also the contents of the body under the shell ...
I do not know….
And here is the fresh lobster or blue, as they are called, lobsters.
Prices are quite democratic - 15-20 euros apiece (even in the Greek Islands fishermen to sell their expensive
and shrimp again. Larger than lemons.
Lobsters too, right there with her ever dropped out eyes and a huge stiff mustache
But still, the most prominent place of honor and oysters
oyster farms in the area just a huge amount, so that the markets of the neighboring towns in the literal sense inundated with this good.
Prices for Europe is very, very attractive - from 6, 5 euros for a dozen oysters 4 caliber ...
... up to 16 euros for the caliber of №2 and 22 euros per №1.
Personally, my favorite is the second number.
Well, apart from the caliber of oysters differ also by type - Fin de Claire Bellon, special, Brittany, Black Noir, etc...
But the real culinary discovery for the snails become me.
Welded, incredibly delicious and ... no less effective than the oyster
There are, of course, and some fish .... And not only Nemo from the movie
a sad look towards the buyer: "me, buy me ..."
What particularly like fish markets - it is for the calculations. Where this market was, sellers are always very creative approach to their showcase ..
It is surprising these banks. It would seem, and canned. But no. This soup.
Drink it often directly from the banks, according to vendors.
The Lord of the seafood. There is no particular compulsion from vendors, such as the fish market in Istanbul, but still they are willing to tenaciously "communicate" with the buyer.
almost certainly come out from behind the counter, talk, talk about the product and help you choose the most beautiful and delicious items. Very nice and friendly!
How here not to buy a couple of lobsters or crabs?
By the way, sellers are very picturesque.
This fellow just Paganel from the movie "Children of Captain Grant"
Someone came to buy, and some fun. In general, no one will say a word. only smile
So traditionally Normandy - bought seafood or you can try to use as directed on the spot.
Here are special tables with high chairs, fixed bins for shells and seashells - sit down and eat shrimp or oysters ....
And someone and tables do not need to. I bought a pound of snails and then, at a pedestrian crossing, refreshed, first go on about their business ...
