Wild Sea Trout and Shiso Ceviche by Carla Lamont of The Ninth Wave Restaurant on the Isle of Mull

Wild sea trout is such a rare treat we like to serve it this way to preserve its integrity. These Asian flavours also work well with salmon or freshwater trout.

Ninth Wave Restaurant on the Isle of Mull showcases quality modern British cuisine with an eclectic mix of vibrant ethnicity: a celebration of quality produce gathered from the magnificent provender of Scotland.

Ninth Wave’s approach is based on seasonality, using the croft’s own home-grown produce, fresh-caught seafood and organic meats from the Island of Mull. Our ethos is one where luxury meets environmental awareness.
