What Is Shellfish?

Crustacean and molluscs, including clams, oysters, lobsters, mussels and shrimps, are widely known as ‘shellfish.’ Shellfish deliver a genuine flavour of the ocean and are incredibly tasty. Shellfish are an incredible protein source and a decent source of nutrients, including iron, calcium and zinc. Moreover, they are straightforward to cook and prepare. You can prepare shellfish in many different ways. Shellfish can be added to all dishes for added flavour and aroma, from entrees and main courses to pasta dishes, stews, and various soups. But steaming, frying, and grilling are the most popular methods to do so.

Processing Shellfish

The highest value seafood throughout the world is the shellfish, fisherfolk and sports fishers, and consumers all agree. Fresh shellfish plus an innovative method of freezing offers the best in seafood! As soon as they’re captured and extracted from the net, our shellfish are flash-frozen, so they are still flavorful and also have an extended shelf life. We guarantee optimum quality and consistency by keeping your shellfish at sustained below freezing levels until you’re ready to cook and serve a tasty and balanced dish.

Benefits Of Frozen Shellfish

If you are new to cooking molluscs at home, try buying frozen shellfish of top quality. The flash-freezing method locks in all the nutrients and preserves the components of protein and fat so that the texture, taste and nutritional value are retained until the shellfish are cooked!

Frozen shellfish can be stored for months in your fridge, allowing you more time at your leisure to think about various cooking techniques and recipe ideas! We suggest steadily thawing shellfish on the fridge the night before you intend to cook it for the optimum quality. Often because shellfish have a long shelf life, transportation costs could be cheaper for the supplier, which means that it would cost less for the vendor to buy the seafood, which will be equivalent to a lower price tag for the end consumer.

Also, shellfish have low calories, high in lean protein, good fats and a wide variety of micronutrients. In shellfish, much of the fat is in the form of omega-3 fatty acids, which provide a host of health benefits, like enhancing the health of the brain and heart.
