Anglesey Sea Salt
Halen môn is the purest of salts, emerging from the clean seas that lap against Anglesey's shore. Unrefined and without additives, this salt offers a unique taste - smooth yet intense with no hint of bitterness. You can purchase it in its simple form or choose among flavoured varieties blended with natural ingredients like celery seeds or organic spices; Halen Mon also comes as smoked oak-infused flakes adding depth to any dish you may create!
Anglesey coastal waters produce a treasure trove of seafood delights. Visitors can indulge in the fresh, locally sourced good food, from succulent oysters to a variety of other sea delicacies, straight from many a bay across the island to the plate. Each dish captures the essence of the Anglesey coastal spirit, offering a taste experience that's as authentic as it is delicious. Whether you're dining in quaint seaside restaurants, a brasserie, or exploring the local fish markets, Anglesey's seafood scene is a culinary journey not to be missed, offering a glimpse into the island's rich maritime heritage and its commitment to the finest fish and shellfish.
Menai Oysters, located on the Anglesey side of the stunningly scenic and environmentally protected Menai Strait in North Wales, are cultivated with a unique sense of harmony to their natural surroundings. The tide-churned waters give the oyster grown here an unmistakable flavour that only this bountiful estuary can provide - an exquisite 'merroir' unlike any other!
Experience a taste sensation like no other on Anglesey with Conwy mussels! These hand-raked mollusks are prized for their striking visual appearance and succulent, juicy meat. Each one is oval with an eye-catching mix of shell colours that reflect the unique environment they inhabit - where fresh river water melds together with salty sea waters around North Wales' Conwy Estuary from September to April each year. The texture has been described as chewy while its distinctive flavour comes from blending garlic, white wine, bacon, or chilli into pasta dishes – Yum! So why not try some today?
Dylan’s restaurant next to the Menai Bridge on the island, is known for its atmosphere and Menai Mussels…well worth a try.
West Wales Salmon
West Wales is home to a unique wild salmon, the Salmo salar species. It can be identified by its silver skin and dark blue back. Its texture is firm yet full of beneficial oils, making it perfect for grilling or poaching- all whilst smelling delicious! Native fishermen use coracles (small hand crafted boats) to catch these fish at their peak quality as soon as they enter from sea; this ensures that only ultra fresh and intensely flavourful filets make up your market purchase.
