Cod Cheeks

When I was eating out earlier this week I noticed that one of the starters was Cod Cheeks which I had never heard of before.  On investigation I found that the meat comes from underneath the eye-socket of a Cod and that it is a great delicacy.  A good article with more information can be found here.

I didn’t have a starter and I had a fairly healthy main course ‘Char Grilled Chicken with Caesar salad’.  I was however tempted to lemon tart with raspberry sorbet and raspberries.  It was all very tasty ;-)

    You learn something new every day, CP. And I will make sure exactly what is going in the pot the next time I ask for cod tail. :)

  2. Never seen cod cheeks offered before. I’m sure there’s not much in the line of calories in them… Next time maybe?

  3. this looks so delicious

    That looks really lovely Cherie…was it local? I could go for that. Very quietly I have spent a few hours catching up. I am loving all the images and was so glad of the turn out against “terms and conditions”. I couldn’t comment on the post, I get so annoyed at the odd few that think because they have had a bad time, “everyone” should have a bad time. Why are people like that? I have a huge story about that…one day perhaps it will become a blog post ! Meanwhile, some fabulous photo’s. I have enjoyed them all very much :D

      Thanks Chrissy it was a fantastic day with the other unions joining us in support. There was another rally in Shrewsbury but I am not sure how that one went. I get annoyed at some of the comments too, it amazes me that supposed intelligent people miss the point.

      I am glad you enjoyed the photographs :-) The restaurant is in Shrewsbury near the Abbey. It is call The Peach Tree, you can see the menu in the link below.

        Ah yes, I missed the tags. I went to the Peach Tree recently and it was lovely. Although I notice you don’t mention the chips ~ which I didn’t order of course but I did enjoy someone elses, haha.

    Made it!
    I haven’t been able to leave comments on several blogs recently.
    Annoying isn’t it. I couldn’t even load your page the other day.
    Still – it is free I suppose and “you don’t get much for nowt!”
    That does look very tasty. :)
    But……….why did you tag it with ‘Weight Loss” & “Weight Watchers”?
    Guilty conscience perhaps? :o

      My site was down for a few hours so that is probably why you couldn’t get on mine. If they are blogger blogs you can’t comment on, I think I have read somewhere that if you log out of blogger you should be able to comment. And yes these little hiccups are annoying!

      It was extremely tasty. I use the tags because I was choosing a healthy option. But I did spoil it a bit with the desert ;-)
