Seafood Variety Is The Spice Of Life

By: Shannon Linnen


The Japanese have less heart attacks and cholesterol problems than many other nationalities. The Bengalis in India stay lean and healthy and they share a common feature with many other people staying near the sea. They love seafood and call them 'flowers of the sea'. Indeed, the oceans present us with a variety of delicacies that are also healthy. Just like the flowers, many fish and crustaceans are seasonal while some are perennial.

The seafood variety ranges from fish like tuna, salmon and sardine to the slightly unusual like the blackened catfish cooked with pineapple or vegetable and herbs. Refrigerated and fast supply chain ensures that supermarkets and online vendors are able to provide fresh fish and any of the seafood variety. Only concern for consumers is the level of mercury and other toxins found in fish. Therefore, fresh fish are to be purchased only from reputed vendors.

Differences in fish species ensures that you can enjoy sauteed tilapia, pan-grilled wild salmon or bass and grilled grouper. Delicious, tasty, healthy, good for the heart and gourmet food are some of the words and phrases used to describe the delicacies and there's a reason.

Oysters, clams, crabs, lobsters, shrimps and scallops are only a small part of the seafood variety from which you can chose. Seared scallops, grilled shrimps or steam mussels will cause your mouth to water. With a doubt, however, the experience of eating Alaskan king crab legs beats it all. It is very simple to prepare; the leg meat can be purchased cooked and frozen. In order to experience it all you have to do is to thaw, rinse and steam heat the meat. Boiling and baking are also common methods of preparation.

King crabs come in red, golden and blue varieties, with red tasting the sweetest and blue yielding more meat. Golden is usually smaller than the other two. Relish the meat of alaskan king crab legs by dipping it in a bowl of hot melted butter, interspersed with sips of white wine to complete the delight. Then relax with contentment for such a delightful meal. But do try to wipe off that satisfied grin from your face.

Many people mistakenly believe stuffed quahogs are exotic dish. Quahogs are nothing but a type of clams with round shell. Various vegetables, herbs, sauces and even crabmeat can be stuffed into them and baked, steamed or sauteed. Quahogs are also good as appetizers or as side dish.

Whether you are a seafood connoisseur, or just getting into seafood one thing is certain. The variety that is offered by choosing seafood dishes is truly endless. As a last resort you can always take a standard dish and just include some type of seafood as an accent piece. A normal rice pilaf can be transformed easily into a tasty and exotic dish just by adding a tuna fillet.

Regardless of where you live, fresh seafood can now be delivered to you overnight. Quality Fresh Seafood is a great source for live lobster, shrimp, shellfish or any fresh fish fillets. Even though items like shrimp do not fair well once they are removed from the ocean, thanks to them being cooked right away and then flash frozen, you can still enjoy them. There really is no reason not to enjoy the large and tasty variety of seafood the ocean has to offer.
