The Goat Ledge
By Arno Maasdrop
As we all know, William the Cone-Queror is a bit of a legend on these shores. If he is not swimming the channel, he is charming both locals and tourists with delicious Italian ice creams (‘seagull poo’ being a firm favourite!)
His latest venture is a Fish Hut, Goat Ledge, serving local fish either grilled or coated in golden Panko crumbs, nestling in either a bap or a tangle of crisp salad.
Chef Tom Barlow shares one of Goat Ledge’s secret. ‘We use a generous dollop of guacamole in our “Special” fish baps and “Deluxe” salad boxes’. Although it’s originally a Mexican dish, it’s so good you can eat it with anything. In fact, it tastes particularly good washed down with a cold beer, looking out to sea.

5-6 ripe avocados
1-2 red onions
Half a bunch coriander
Salt and pepper
1. Slice the avocados around the stone making sure to avoid ‘Avocado hand’…
2. Scoop the flesh into a large mixing bowl.
3. Using a citrus squeezer, juice the limes onto the avocados (it’s best to add the lime first to prevent oxidisation).
4. Finely dice the red onion, chop the coriander and add them to the mix.
5. Pulverise using a knife or masher to the preferred consistency.
6. Season to taste.
