Up for grabs are loads of mouth-watering Yorkshire goodies including a selection of Jackson's soft and tasty bloomers and bread rolls and bags and bags of tasty coated seafood from Whitby Seafoods!*



And if that wasn’t enough, we’re throwing in a 2-night stay in the stunning seaside town of Whitby for good measure!**

We’ve also pulled together some exciting recipes for you to create, using Whitby Seafoods products and Jackson's bread! It’s a bloomin’ good pairing if you ask us! Read on for some sumptuous ideas...




Fish Goujon Butty


You can’t beat a good ol’ fish butty! We recommend using a pack of our Whitby Seafood Fish Goujons and cooking them to the packet instructions. Whilst waiting, take a Jackson’s hand-finished white bread roll slice it in half and spread with butter. 


When your goujons are cooked, add these to the roll, add a bit of salt and vinegar and voila – a bloomin’ good fish goujon sandwich!


If you’re feeling extra adventurous, why not add a dollop of Gin & Tonic tartare sauce (yes you heard that right!). See below for the recipe…


  • 200ml mayonnaise
  • 3 tbsp capers (drained & chopped)
  • 3 tbsp gherkins (drained & chopped)
  • 3 tbsp fresh parsley (chopped)
  • 1 small chopped shallot 
  • A squeeze of lemon juice
  • Salt & pepper to season
  • Splash of your favourite gin (ours has to be Hendrick’s!)



Scampi and Mashed Peas on Toast


Scampi and mushy peas are a great combination and everything tastes better on Jackson’s toast so we’re sure this recipe will be a real crowd pleaser! Plus it’s super easy to make so is a great snack option.


Oven cook your Whitby Seafoods Whole Scampi as per the packet instructions.


Whilst you wait, simply add frozen peas to a bowl of boiling water and leave to stand for 2-3 minutes. Using the back of a fork or a potato masher mash the peas add a drizzle of rapeseed oil, some lemon zest and chopped mint and stir through.


All that's left to do is toast your Jackson’s brown bloomer and pile on the scampi and peas and dive in!




Lemon and Pepper Goujon Bruschetta


We’ve decided to put a Yorkshire twist on an Italian classic, with our Lemon & Pepper Goujons, to create some delicious bruschettas. Buon Appetit!


Grab yourself a bag of Whitby Seafoods Lemon and Pepper Goujons, place on a baking tray and cook to packet instructions.


Next, preheat your grill and grab 2 slices of Jackson's White Bloomer bread. Drizzle with a little bit of olive oil, making sure the bread is completely coated; you don’t want burnt bread! Place under the grill until crispy, then remove. If you’re feeling fancy, take a garlic clove and rub this all over the bread to add a little extra flavour. 


Once the goujons are cooked, stack these on top of the bread and serve with a little bit of side salad! This is perfect as a starter for a romantic night in.
