Lift the lid on the Fish Kettle
A fish kettle is a large, oval-shaped kettle used for cooking whole fish. These kettles usually have racks and handles, and notably tight-fitting lids.
In Victorian times fish was in plentiful supply and throughout the year cooks looked forward to seasonal variations in the daily catch. Over the festive period fish such as Brill, Cod, John Dory, Skate, Turbot and Whiting were prepared.
