Welcome to The Seafood Shack, a tiny catering trailer in Ullapool on the west coast of Scotland. It’s here that Kirsty Scobie and Fenella Renwick take whatever their fishermen friends bring them each day and serve it up for their ever-growing band of loyal customers.

Join them and discover how easy it is to cook mouthwatering seafood with over 80 down-to-earth recipes, plus essential tips on how to prepare, dissect, fillet and cook white fish, smoked fish and shellfish. The recipes are punctuated with tall tales from the fishermen who go out on fine days and foul to to catch this fantastic produce from the clear and icy North Atlantic waters.

Whether it’s their signature haddock wrap for a mid-week dinner or their garlic & thyme langoustines for a weekend party treat, this is food that is simple and quick, but more importantly fresh, delicious to eat and an absolute joy to cook.
