If you are looking for something delicious and nutritious, you cannot go wrong with fresh seafood. Seafood is often recognized as an essential part of a healthy diet. Most fishes, crabs and lobsters are low in harmful saturated fat and high in helpful omega-3 fatty acids. A wide range of seafood includes muscle-building protein as well as essential vitamins and minerals.
Because of the incredible diversity of edible marine life and the unlimited preparation possibilities, there is a fresh seafood dish for everyone. Fish alone opens consumers to a world of diverse flavours and textures. Some fish, like fatty tuna, feel as though they will melt in your mouth. Whitefish, such as tilapia and cod, get practically all of their taste from the aromatics used to prepare them. Because their flavour is too intense on its own, you must prepare them with additional ingredients. Other fish, such as halibut, have a texture akin to a steak or pork chop.
Coldwater fish with oily flesh, such as salmon, trout, and tuna, have the highest omega-3 fat contents. According to a review published in the European Review for Medical and Pharmacological Sciences, omega-3 fats can benefit both people with healthy hearts and those with cardiovascular disease. These “good fats” have been shown to lower blood pressure, regulate cardiac rhythm, and reduce the risk of blood clotting. According to Harvard Health Publishing, eating more fish may even lower the risk of developing congestive heart failure. Fish has also been suggested as a component of a “brain-healthy” diet in a 2020 study published in Frontiers in Aging Neuroscience.
Online Fish Delivery in the UK
Freshness is the measure of quality in seafood, as it is in many other types of cuisine. Anyone who lives near the coastal UK should have no trouble finding fresh seafood from seafood wholesalers in the UK. For everyone else, online seafood delivery may be the best option.
There is no way of knowing what you will get with online fish delivery, so choose a seafood delivery shop wisely. Numerous online fish delivery shops advertise freshly caught fish and fast seafood home delivery. If they are true to their word, it is unlikely that your local supermarket or even fish market can source fresher seafood. Many shops of seafood delivery in London will even deliver live seafood (crabs and lobsters) in custom-designed packages.
If you do live near a fresh seafood market, here’s what to look for before buying something branded “fresh”:
- Check for firm, almost bouncy flesh that responds to touch.
- The colour should be as even and bright as possible throughout the meat and skin.
- If the scales were not removed, they should still be firmly attached, smooth, and shimmering.
- Fish should be moist on the inside and out.
- When buying whole fish, look for gills that are bright red and moist.
- Ensure that the eyeballs are not recessed into the skull. They should be as clear and bright as possible.
- Smell the fish as well—different species have different scents, but they should all smell clean and fresh.
