CUISINE REVIEW: The Seahorse - Mitch Tonks and Mat Prowse

Release Date: 18/06/15
Publisher:  Absolute Press


The Seahorse restaurant, nestled on the mouth of the River Dart, champions some of the best fish and shellfish in the world from the nearby landing site and is a favourite haunt of the foodie establishment. The menu is a seafood lover's tour of Europe's great fish dishes and cooking over a charcoal fire is the restaurant's speciality. With an emphasis on freshness and the catch of the day, the food's simplicity is as deceptive as it is delicious. Cherished by critics, foodies and locals, The Seahorse is a rare gem in Britain's sea of restaurants and was named 'Best Seafood Restaurant in the UK 2013' by the Good Food Guide and 'Best UK Restaurant 2012' by Observer Food Monthly.

The Seahorse showcases over 70 spectacular dishes served at the restaurant. Celebrating the seasons and reflecting the restaurant's changing menu in tune with the harvest from the waves, it combines insightful features focusing on the restaurant's suppliers in Europe and stunning photography from Chris Terry to create a beautiful and accessible addition to any seafood lover's kitchen.


As a person who loves to spend time in the kitchen, I tend to relish any chance I get to learn new recipes. These days I tend to feel that I need to eat a bit more fish in order to make sure that I not only have a healthier lifestyle but also to make sure that I get all the vitamins and essential oils that I may be missing.

Based on the successful recipes of renowned restaurant The Seahorse, this title delivers a good few cracking recipes and a few that I wouldn’t have expected from a seafood restaurant. It’s definitely a book that has a whole heap of things to keep you interested, a few combinations that may surprise you and all round allows you to prepare something special for any time of year making the most of the seasonal catches. And that, is the key to not only sustainable fishing but also allowing you to try some varieties of fish that you may not be familiar with but will love the flavour of. Magic.
