Martin's Still Mad About Fish

Chef Martin Shanahan is back on TV with a new mission - to get people eating fish every day! He is determined to bring the fish revolution to every midland town of Ireland. Watch out Thurles, Roscommon, Carlow - as Martin is on his way.

In his new series Martin's Still Mad About Fish, Martin travels around Ireland bringing his seafood delights to non coastal towns, helping local businesses and getting fish-hating consumers to eat fish - with surprising results.

Martin attempts to bring back the once popular indigenous shell fish back to the urban streets, like cockles and mussels in Dublin, oysters in Galway and periwinkles in Clare. During his journey Martin will share the secrets of his recipes and in doing so he hopes to inspire the country to eat more fish cooking simple and inspirational dishes.

Martin's catchphrase 'No Skin, No Bone, No Problem' has taken the mystery out of cooking fish. Martin's aim is to make every day a fish day in Ireland.
