A Southport fishmonger has revealed a list of delicious treats he has available for families over the Christmas and New Year period, to provide that real ‘wow factor’ for guests. 

Kevin Peet, owner of Peets Plaice in Churchtown, has lots of fresh, cooked and frozen specials available both in his shop, and also available for home delivery using his website. 

He is already getting busy with orders for families looking forward to enjoying the festive season and is looking forward to welcoming people to his shop on Cambridge Road, near Churchtown Lights, over the next couple of weeks. 

He said: “Lots of people go traditional and serve turkey for their main course on Christmas Day, but fish and seafood has that real wow factor whether it’s served as a starter, as a main course, as a platter, or as snacks for your guests. 

“We have a huge selection for people to choose from that is easy and hassle free to prepare and is also great value.” 

Peets Plaice will be selling special festive seafood including: 

  • Lobsters live and cooked 
  • Langoustines fresh and frozen 
  • Oysters 
  • Shrimps 
  • Potted shrimps 
  • Great selection of prawns, cooked and raw 
  • King scallops 
  • And much more besides 

Peets Plaice is always busy in the run-up to Christmas and has some increased opening times over the next two weeks including: 

Monday to Friday 8am to 4pm 

Christmas Eve 8am to 1pm 

Christmas Day, Boxing Day and 27th December closed 

28th, 29th and 30th December open 8am to 4pm 

New Year’s Eve 8am to 1pm

Kevin Peet said: “Fish is really popular over the Christmas and new year season and there are so many ways of serving it such as prawn cocktail, potted shrimps with toast, fresh lobster, smoked salmon on toast, fresh oysters, our special smoked salmon and lobster pate, and lots more. 

“Our potted shrimps have always been really popular, and you can’t beat eating something over the Christmas period that you know has been caught right here off the coast of Southport. You can keep them in your freezer too which is really handy. Our fresh brown shrimps are very popular too.

“Things like that as a starter on Christmas Day, Boxing Day or New Year’s Day is something special for people. 

“Luxury prawns are always popular and we have bags of coldwater prawns or king prawns which are quick and easy to make into a prawn salad or a prawn cocktail while you’re busy cooking your main course. We even produce a nice home-made prawn cocktail sauce that you can use with them! 

“For those looking for that taste of luxury, you could make a salad or a cocktail using fresh crayfish tails instead.

“We have Chapman’s Family Packages with lots of frozen specials that are quick and easy to put into your oven for guests. 

“For anyone looking for what to buy loved ones this Christmas we also have Peets Plaice Gift Vouchers available. 

“We can take orders online, or over the phone if that is easier for people. 

“We deliver the next day, something you don’t get with supermarkets. 

“As a local, family-run business with over 40 years’ experience, you are guaranteed quality products with great, friendly service. 

“I would like to wish all our customers both new and old a very merry Christmas and a happy new year! 

“Please call in and see us if you need any advice on deciding what to serve this year.”
