A New Kosher Fish Debuts in England
Manchester, UK… The traditional popular fish and chips menu may have a new addition. According to the Jewish News, kosher consumers in Britain now have another fish to add to their culinary repertoire, New Forest barramundi. The Australian fish has long been available to Jews down under. Betty Solomon of Melbourne’s Mizrachi department, who confirmed that it is kosher if it has fins and scales, had not actually eaten it herself. The fish can be baked like trout, mixed with seasoning in cutlets, but she advised not to make gefilte fish with it as it might be too expensive! The fish, farmed in the British New Forest, is reported to taste like sea bass or Dover sole.
