|The most expensive trout ever produced|
complete with it's own commemorative case
Just when you think you’ve seen and tasted it all, an invitation comes to try the world’s most expensive trout (and who was I to say no!).
RR. Spink & Sons of Arbroath are a brand with a rich heritage which I love, they date back to the 1700’s and hold a Royal Warrant as Fishmonger to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. To celebrate their 300 year anniversary they were revealing 300 limited edition luxury trout fillets, each one costing £300. The event took place in the newly opened Morden and Lea bistro in London’s Soho, owned by Michelin star chef Mark Sergeant.
So what makes this trout so special? Well each fillet is hand-cured, smoked over native Scottish wood including oak, cherry, pine and beech which combine to give it a very unique taste, It’s also given a four-day slow maturation time giving this rather regal fillet a very tasty finish! We were lucky enough to taste individual flakes which if you do the maths probably works out to at least a £1.

Now, I must book my trip up to the Highlands! (Or alternatively, there is Selfridges!).
