Seafood is defined as edible fi sh or shellfish. The variety of species living under water is incredible, and this is why seafood is a delicacy; once you acquire the taste, is hard to beat.
Most people have tried shrimp at some point, possible because it’s the most well-known crustacean. Shrimp is best served warm, grilled with a combination of garlic, olive oil, a hint of lemon, some pepper, and some spices of your own preference. But shrimp keeps its taste most when fried.

Lobster, although expensive, is many fish lovers favourite. The most popular way of cooking lobster is boiling or steaming as this will provide a perfect balance between taste and tenderness. Some chefs prefer to steam lobster because boiling it often adds a watery taste that many people who eat it aren’t fond of. Lobster may also be barbecued.

aroma of, well, fish. Before you know it, you will develop an insatiable desire to dive in deeper.
