Neven’s Irish Seafood Trails, Wednesday 9th January, 8.30 PM on RTÉ One.
Neven Maguire returns to our screens in the New Year with a brand new seven part series of his hugely popular Food Trails programmes. Neven’s Irish Seafood Trails is his first series dedicated to seafood. His journey around Ireland takes Neven to Mayo,Cork, Donegal, Sligo, Kerry, Galway, Dublin, and Kilkenny, as he discovers the very best of Irish seafood and braves some choppy waters!
Programme one: MAYO
In the first episode of Neven’s Irish Seafood Trails, Neven heads to Mayo. His first stop is the stunning Clew Bay where the pristine waters offer the perfect environment in which to grow mussels. Neven takes a boat out into the bay to meet Michael Mulloy, a mussel farmer who shows Neven how it’s done, and treats him to some mussels cooked on board.
Back on dry land, Neven visits the Knockranny House Hotel in Westport where Head Chef Seamus Commons shares a recipe for Haddock and Bon Bons. Venturing south, Neven visits Ireland’s only fjord at Killary, where a boat trip is the best way to explore the beautiful scenery.
Neven then calls in at the intriguingly named Misunderstood Heron food truck for a freshly made fish pasty.To end his Mayo seafood adventures, Neven returns to Clew Bay and a choppy sea to visit the Clare Island Organic Salmon Farm.
To complete this first programme Neven prepares delicious Salmon Burgers.
Neven’s Irish Seafood Trails is produced and directed by David Hare for InproductionTV and is sponsored by BORD BIA
