Friday is normally our day for making a trip to Howth. We nip into Nicky’s Plaice as early as possible to get the fish. My Grandmother always got her fish from Howth and so we continue with the tradition.
Our family has great ties to Howth, in fact my husband’s grand uncle was the last Howth tram driver so it holds a very important place in our hearts.
So why am I telling you all of this? Well I’ll be in Howth this Sunday, celebrating the Dublin Bay Prawn Festival with a demonstration of a top-secret recipe from my cookbook, along with a prawn recipe of course! The featured image is a warm prawn salad that I cooked earlier this year and you’ll find the recipe by clicking here.
You’ll find me at the Festival Marquee near the East Pier at 1pm and don’t be afraid to say hello!
