Seafood Week



Jump to:-       Fish   |    Shellfish  |   Seaweed  |   Recipes



National Seafood Week is with us again. Many people automatically think of items such as prawns, crab and mussels when the word seafood is mentioned, however the term actually covers any edible form of life which comes from the sea, namely fish, shellfish and seaweed.

National Seafood Week is held every year to make people aware that not only is seafood quick and easy to cook,  but it has the added benefit of being low in fat and a good source of protein, vitamins, minerals and omega-3 fatty acids.  For these reasons, as well as the fact it's delicious, we are all now being urged to eat seafood twice a week. So what better time to start than during National Seafood Week.


To celebrate National Seafood Week, we've put together  a little information about the various types of seafood available plus, of course, lots of seafood recipes.


Fish come in many forms: flat such as turbot and plaice; round such as salmon and sea bass; large such as swordfish and tuna; small such as anchovy and whitebait; white such as cod and haddock; oily such as sardines and mackerel and there is truly a fish suitable for every occasion and every cooking method.

Shellfish can be divided into two main groups crustaceans which have a segmented body, legs and an exoskeleton such as lobsters, prawns, crab and crayfish and molluscs such as whelks, mussels, clams and squid (calamari).



Seaweeds are a common food in certain oriental cuisines such as Japanese and are now gaining favour as an edible seafood in the western diet although items such as laver bread have been eaten in the UK for centuries.  Other well known varieties include Carrageen, Nori, Wakame, Konbu.
