Summer seafood recipes

At Watergate Bay Hotel we can trace all our fish back to the fisherman, which is really important to our chefs. Like any ingredient, fish is seasonal and we always look to our local fisherman first. Being so close to the ocean, seafood plays a big part in our menus in all our restaurants especially The Beach Hut where we have a daily changing seafood specials board.

Lets us know how you get on with our favourite pick of Watergate’s seafood recipes…perfect for summer dining.


1: Pan fried Cornish hake with Rodda’s clotted cream and cider sauce

Pan-frying is one of the most popular ways to cook hake steaks. They blend well with a number of flavors, for this recipe Chef Haydock has used the milder flavours of Rodda’s clotted cream and cider sauce.

2: Razor Clams with D’Nujotto

A great summer dish to serve as a starter.

3: Ceviche of salmon and scallops with tomato salsa

This dish is light and refreshing. The tomato salsa comlpiments the salmon and scallops perfectly; a great dish for a hot summers day.

4: Cornish monkfish with asparagus, new potatoes and wild garlic pesto

Monkfish is abundant in the Cornish waters and very underused outside of restaurants. It is very versatile and can take strong flavours and can be cooked with spices or wrapped in lardo or other cured pork products which enhance its flavour.

5: Sea bass with new potatoes, spinach, tomato, pancetta and brown shrimps

The brown shrimps provide a delicate saltiness and the pancetta adds texture and smokiness to the soft tomatoes, its the perfect dish for a dinner party at home with friends.
