Each week we choose two fish species for the box which will serve two or four people. Once you’ve placed your order you will receive the recipes and an exclusive link to watch the online tutorial with Mark to learn how to fillet and prepare this week’s fish, before creating a delicious starter and main course.

You can also order scallops in the shell and Mark’s Flodge-smoked salmon too, cured and smoked at his Charmouth home.
