10 reasons to visit Shetland - Fresh & Delicious

by Misa Hay -

The flavour of Shetland will tantalize those taste buds!

Savour pure organic lamb – lean, succulent and tender with hints of heather, wildflowers, herbs and seaweed (perfect with Shetland Black roasties). Breakfast on award-winning smoked salmon and fresh eggs purchased at the roadside – honesty boxes abound. Dine on the plump juicy meat of rope-grown mussels harvested in pristine tidal waters of the voes and sounds. Listen to the clink-clink of boats in the marina as you tuck into yummy fish and chips from award-winning Frankie's. Stock up on locally sourced ingredients at the weekend Farmers" Markets, including delicious gourmet preserves and the mellow Zetland cheddar (perfect with Oceanic oatcakes) from Shetland Cheese. Gift Puffin Poo to friends back home (chocolate!) and fine ales from Valhalla Brewery. The true flavour of Shetland is fresh, seasonal and much of it organic, just as nature intended.
