As an island surrounded by the sea, it's no wonder that fish have always played a major part of the English diet.
English rivers are famous for producing hours of marvellous salmon and trout fishing; head to the Lake District to find dishes of salmon or the Avon river in Hampshire for trout.
For shellfish, where better to visit than Norfolk for crab and cockles or perhaps spend the day trawling a line behind a fishing boat in hope of catching some mackerel.
And no doubt every visitor to England will enjoy the delights of fish and chips at least once!
The recipes selected here showcase the finest fish dishes and produce from locations around England, and celebrate a truly indispensable aspect of the nation's cuisine.
