My Story

Owner at fish counter
Owner, Kath on the opening of Fish With A Twist

Fish With A Twist is located in the stunning Nidderdale village of Pateley Bridge, North Yorkshire.

My main aim is to provide the finest seafood and healthy eating options possible. Apart from the wetfish counter I also make pates, fishcakes, fishpies, quiches, tapenade, salmon en-croute, undyed haddock smokies which are all made using locally sourced ingredients, supporting local farmers and businesses. There are no hidden additives or preservatives and I can alter recipes depending on your dietary needs or even portion sizes.

I am passionate about the freshness and quality of the fish I sell and get a delivery every day from the most sustainably sourced areas I can. The great thing about being a soletrader is that if I am not happy with the fish I receive on a morning, I simply send it back as quality is essential in the fresh fish business.

The Twist

Now for the Twist…to tempt your tastebuds, you will find ingredients at Fish with A Twist which will compliment fish to create delicious meals. I have some beautiful infused olive oils which can be used to flavour your fish or drizzle over salads – 200ml bottles may be bought at the shop and brought back to refill when empty. If you are unsure how to cook certain fish then I am happy to help and advise you by providing simple, easy to follow recipes.

There are many benefits of eating fresh, unprocessed fish and the government recommend that you eat 2 portions of fish a week. Not only is fish virtually fat free but it is rich in Omega 3 oils. Our Samphire grass which is grown in Norfolk is especially good for you as it is full of natural antioxidents.

Recycling is encouraged at Fish with a Twist and I try to use as little plastic as realistically possible.
Fish with a Twist offers a friendly warm welcome in abundance and with the fabulous shops in Pateley Bridge we hope to cater for everyone….I think the only thing we are missing is a candlestick maker! ?
