To be a good fisherman :

Instructions from an angler visiting Previthal… 

  • I use appropriate fishing tools such as the two-pronged fork, the pronged claw, the triangular shovel, the knife, the piquot. 
  • I respect the seasonality of the shellfish, I do not fish shellfish with sizes too small,
  • I fish for myself, and for no one else, 
  • I do not throw anything into the sea, 
  • I inform myself about the tide times and I make sure to return before the sea rises again, 
  • I check the weather forecast, so as not to take any risks, 
  • I don’t touch the professional materials that I meet. 

Tips :

When you return home, remember to drain your shellfish in salt water and keep them in the fridge!

To cook like a chef...

To prepare your grey shrimps, we advise you from the reboiling of the water, to count 2 minutes so that they cook.

As for the scallops, your pan must be hot before cooking them! Season your scallops with salt or fleur de sel, on both sides! You can be generous, they have a thick flesh. When the middle of the scallops is smooth and pearly, they are ready to eat!

For the crab, when the water is boiling, allow about ten minutes! You can add some herbs to your boiling water, including a bouquet garni!

The clams, in the frying pan are a delight, we advise you to stop cooking when the shells are open.

For winkles and whelks, the best thing is to disgorge them for 1 to 2 hours in very salty water. You can then cook them for about twenty minutes with salt, pepper, thyme…
