The Gentlemen's Breakfast - Grilled kippers
Fyne Restaurants (www.lochfyne.com),
the sustainable seafood group, have created an alternative
to the great English fry up - The Gentlemen's Breakfast
- Grilled kippers.
Approximately one in five people in the UK eat a fry
up at least once a week. Which means an average of about
11,757,839 fried breakfasts are eaten a week
thats about 1,679,691 eaten on a daily basis.
However, the full English breakfast typically has between
800 and 1000 calories, and around 30g of fat compared
to the 533 calories and 24g of fat in Loch Fynes
new brainfood breakfast, so those wanting to soak up
a hangover but not pile on the pounds might be better

classic: Smoked salmon with scrambled eggs
gentlemens breakfast: Grilled kippers

and tuck into the classic smoked salmon and scrambled
eggs, a pair of grilled Loch Fyne kippers or poached
smoked haddock with a soft poached egg for a morning
after kick start!
Douglas Wright, Loch Fynes executive chef says:
Fish is a great option for those wanting a
big breakfast. Its lower in fat and cholesterol
than the usual sausages and bacon, and because fish
is full of Omega 3 it helps keep your brain young and
