We understand the importance of planning the perfect Christmas, whether that be finding thoughtful gifts, rounding up the troops for a family gathering, or, the most important bit for us as chefs, planning the perfect Christmas feast.  And, in true Fish Union style, our Christmas is most certainly not all about the turkey.  Don’t get us wrong, there’s nothing wrong with a traditional turkey dinner, but we like to go that extra mile to bring a bit more excitement to the table, that’s why we have given the festive feast a Fish Union makeover and created a delicious range of chef prepared ‘At Home’ box dishes, as well as a selection of our fresh market fish, all perfect for a delicious Fishmas feast.

So, let us talk you through the perfect Fishmas feast…


Smoked salmon

It’s a no brainer… the best way to start Christmas Day in our opinion, is with delicious, fresh smoked salmon and free range scrambled eggs – a total classic that’s nice and light so it will set you up without overly filling you up.  And of course, it’s best served with a glass of fizz – well, it is Christmas after all! It’s not just for breakfast, we enjoy fresh smoked salmon to start our feast served simply with lemon and crusty brown bread.

Prawn cocktail

You just can’t go wrong with this Christmas classic, it’s  a guaranteed crowd pleaser and super quick and easy to prepare too.


We can’t think of anything better than to start the feast off with the fresh taste of the sea.  We like to enjoy our oysters with a little lemon or shallot vinegar, but they are equally as delicious straight up. Our At Home box contains 25 deliciously fresh Maldon oysters perfect for the occasion.

Shellfish platter

Bring the experience of Fish Union straight to your home with our popular shellfish platter.  This standout party piece is easy to prepare yourself, or, the best bit is, you can simply unbox and serve our freshly prepared boxed platter and take all of the credit (we won’t tell if you don’t!). Our platter brings a ready to serve selection of six oysters, half a native lobster, dressed crab, langoustines, Atlantic prawns, steamed mussels and clams.  Or to indulge in the taste of pure luxury, you could opt for our Fish Union Luxury platter, consisting of 12 Oysters; 2 Hand dived scallops with house made coral butter; Whole dressed Native lobster and a bottle of Coates & Seely Brut Reserve to wash it down perfectly, its ideal for parties and New Years Eve celebrations.


Move over turkey, we have brought some new dishes to town this Christmas for an alternative main course…

Ocean roast

Let us do the hard work for you with our ocean roast box… enjoy our catch of the day lightly marinated in lemon, garlic and parsley with a delicious shrimp and shellfish sauce; yorkie batter, roast potatoes, tender stem broccoli; vichy carrots and easy to follow cooking instructions card.

Tuna Wellington

Our favourite dish which we will be serving at home on Christmas Day! Yellowfin tuna coated in a delicious mushroom puree, wrapped in nori seaweed and encrusted in puff pastry. It’s delicious served with buttered vichy carrots, tenderstem broccoli, creamy mashed potato and our shellfish gravy.

You can make this dish yourself and save yourself time by preparing this dish the day before ahead of your guests arriving. Or, make your life even easier by purchasing it from us, just unbox, cook and enjoy! We offer a salmon wellington too!

Whole dressed lobster

Delicious cold or warmed under the grill.  We like to enjoy ours roasted with garlic butter and take our time to enjoy the flavours and shell cracking – a taste of pure luxury.

Tuna lasagne

We will be serving this tasty alternative as part of our Boxing Day spread.
