Do you order the tried-and-true favorites or try something new when you go out to eat? Even if you’re the sort who routinely tries new foods, seafood can be a completely other experience, especially if you have no idea what you’re getting yourself into. Fish is a high-protein, healthful food that is particularly high in omega-3 fatty acids, which are vital lipids that our bodies cannot create on their own. Here are ten different varieties of seafood you should try:
Oysters are one of those foods that you either love or loathe. Try the Oyster Seafood at Fish Me in Australia. It’s no surprise that the event takes place in the fall; native, flat, wild Atlantic oysters are only accessible then. They’re harvested once they spawn and endure, well, as long as they last, before disappearing till the following year.
Mahi-mahi is a tropical firm fish that you can cook using any recipe you like. It’s occasionally mistaken with the mammal dolphin because it’s sometimes named dolphin fish. But they are for sure very different!
3. Swordfish steak:
There’s a reason why swordfish is advertised as a steak, and it’s ideal for anyone on the fence about trying fish. It’s not at all fishy, has a solid, meat-like texture, and will satisfy even the most adamant carnivore’s desires while still providing all the health advantages of fish.
4. Rainbow Trout:
Farmed rainbow trout is really a better choice than wild rainbow trout because it is cultivated in an environment free of toxins. It’s also one of the least harmful fish to eat in terms of the environment.
5. Sea cucumbers:
Although over 1,400 different species of aquatic cucumber are quite attractive, they are unlikely to win any beauty pageants. Its high fucosylated glycosaminoglycan content, which is a big word for a substance that helps with joint pain, is one of the things that makes them so important.
6. Fried catfish:
Isn’t everything tastier once it’s fried? Catfish is no exception to this rule. Catfish has a reputation for being a bottom-feeder, but give it a try: it’s a mild fish with firm meat that holds up well to being fried, and giving it a try is much more about picking something nice; it’s also about picking something that’s environmentally friendly.
Tuna is a favourite of many people, whether it’s fresh or tinned. Choose a piece of fresh tuna that is shiny and smells like it came straight from the sea. It’s very simple to cook; all it takes is a simple sear on high heat.
8. Smoked fish:
Traditional Grimsby smoked fish is a must-try if you’re searching for some delicious smoked fish.
9. Snakehead fish:
These nasty, slime-covered, air-breathing fish are very invasive, having been discovered in streams all around the United States, but they’re also quite appetizing.
Phosphorus, niacin, and vitamin B-12 are all abundant in this flaky white fish. 15 to 20 grams of protein are found in a 3-ounce cooked meal. For a lovely accompaniment, try a piccata sauce on top of cod.
