To continue with my market series, next up are fish markets in Lagos. My favourite location is Makoko, but I only get to go there every now and then it’s a rudely early Saturday morning haul. When I do go, I make it count. There is also a market at Epe and for those of us not able to get all the way out there from the Island, there is a small market on the other side of Falomo bridge in Victoria Island. No matter which market you head to to buy your fish in Lagos, you do want to get t here early. As early as the fishermen come in with their early morning catch. I do love my fish, most fish but not all. Yes, I’m a picky eater. Bony fish I can do without. Anyhoot, here are some photos from my fish shopping trips at Falomo bridge and at Epe.
How fresh is your fish? On a trip to Epe market I bought mine straight out of the water.
A few scenes from the fish stalls on the other side of Falamo bridge in Victoria Island, Lagos.
Red snapper. Great for grilling whole as I did in a previous post.
And Nigerian tiger prawns. I’m quite sure these are langostines, but anyway they are massive. Recipe featuring these babies coming up soon.
