THE SEA SHELL OF LISSON GROVE 
 

Healthy Eating at The Sea Shell    

History of Batter  Crisp outer shell encasing a cooked fillet.....there is nothing more British than fish and chips, but you’d be surprised to know that coating fish in batter was to act as a preservative which was then thrown away when the fish was eaten.   Cooking in batter protects the fish from the cooking oil and allows the fish to cook in its own steam, trapping in the fish's natural juices, goodness and flavour.  Eating battered fish appeared in Britain as far back as the 15th Century, and was introduced by Portuguese Marrano Jews. 

 

 Cooking in Ground Nut Oil  Wonderfully pleasant, sweetly flavoured peanut oil is low in saturated fats and free from cholesterol making it one of the healthiest cooking oils. The Sea Shell Restaurant is committed to ensuring its fish is cooked by the healthiest methods available to us. 

 

 Panko as an Alternative Coating  Panko is similar to breadcrumbs but is processed into large flakes rather then crumbs. It is light, airy and has a delicate texture that helps it crisp as it cooks. The texture is especially wonderful for fried food as it absorbs less oil than breadcrumbs, keeping the food more crisp and crunchy and healthy.  

 

 Alternatives to Chips  Enjoy the most traditional potato alternatives with your fish! The Sea Shell prides itself on using the very best produce, sourced locally and prepared fresh each day.
