Fochabers Fish Bar - Scotland's No.1 Fish and Chips 2017

On our way home from our dolphin spotting adventure at Spey Bay, a big sign pointed us to the direction of "Scotland's No.1 Fish and Chip Takeaway 2017" located in Fochabers.

A queue was already forming when we arrived at Fochabers Fish Bar. There is a small section for those wishing to dine-in or you could join the queue for the takeaway. Expect a short wait as everything is cooked to order. While waiting, we studied the long list of awards they have won over the years, including Runner Up in the Young Fish Frier of the Year Competition 2017.

After collecting our order, we walked down to the Village Square to enjoy our dinner. We ordered two scampi suppers, one each for the kids since they're big fans (weekly offer at £4.90 instead of £6.20) - each pack comes with 10 pieces of breaded scampi, crisp and juicy. Hubby and I also ordered the haddock (£4.50) and haggis pudding (£2.30). The haddock was great, with a light, crispy batter enclosing the fresh, flaky fish. The haggis pudding was massive, though tastewise I prefer the one here.

Overall, we enjoyed our chipper dinner - definitely worth making a stop here if you are in the area.

For dessert, we had ice cream from a nearby award-winning ice cream shop - Fochabers Ice Cream Parlour (£2.25 each).

We went for a little walk after dinner... a great view from the bridge of River Spey.

Price: Total bill £19.40.

Recipe: Avocado, Strawberry and Feta Sandwich

I found avocado, strawberry and feta in the fridge and thought they'd go nicely together in a sandwich. An easy one to put together - spread mashed avocado on toast, layer on the creamy feta cheese and then finish off with sliced juicy strawberries. I sprinkled Maldon salt on half of the sandwich, and drizzled honey on the other half... they were both delicious!

Avocado, Strawberry and Feta Sandwich
Recipe by Baby Sumo
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Serves 1

1/2 ripe avocado
2 slice white bread, toasted
2 strawberries, thinly sliced
5 thin slices feta cheese
Maldon salt

1. Scoop out avocado flesh and mash with a fork.

2. Spread the avocado on one slice of toast, and then layer with feta cheese and strawberries. Either sprinkle with some Maldon salt or drizzle with honey, or both if preferred. Top with another slice of toast and cut into half.

Note: You can also serve this as an open-faced sandwich, omit one slice of toast.
