This recipe for Steamed Gigha Halibut with Scottish Asparagus and Gazpacho sauce comes from the Loch Fyne Oysters Shop.

Loch Fyne started with one inspirational idea - to grow oysters in the clear, fertile waters of Loch Fyne - and has developed into a cluster of businesses whose success is built on an honest approach to superb quality food.

All Loch Fyne businesses abide by the guiding environmental principles established by John Noble and Andy Lane at the outset. The companies work together to ensure that only the very best produce - farmed and fished to the highest quality and environmental standards - reaches the kitchens and plates of their customers.
