Try traditional Scottish seafood dishes at fish restaurants in Glasgow
Cullen skink, one of the most well-known Scottish seafood dishes, is a creamy and comforting type of seafood chowder made from smoked haddock, potatoes and onions. Originating from the town of Cullen in Moray, cullen skink is eaten all over the country, usually as a starter, and on a cold, winter's day in Glasgow, nothing will warm you up quite like a big bowl of it. Another must-try dish when dining at fish restaurants in Glasgow is Arbroath Smokie. A speciality of the town of Arbroath in Angus, Arbroath Smokie is prepared using a method dating back to the 1800’s. The fish are first salted overnight, tied in pairs and left overnight to dry before being hung over a triangular length of wood to smoke. At breakfast time, we recommend trying an Arbroath toastie, best described as a Scottish take on a Welsh rarebit made with smoked haddock poached in milk with flour, egg and grated cheese, then served on toast. Fish and chips is a British classic and no one does it quite like the Scots – we are pros when it comes to deep-frying things after all. Enjoy freshly-caught cod and haddock, beer-battered and sided with a slice of lemon, some handcut chips and mushy peas (of course) at the best fish restaurants in Glasgow.
