Cooking fish, shellfish and more...

Any kind of aquatic life that is regarded as food fit for consumption by humans is called seafood and includes fish and shellfish.

Fish are of two kinds, either ‘Round fish or Flat fish’ and come from Salt water (Ocean) or Fresh water (Dams, Rivers and Lakes). On the other hand, shellfish include various species of Molluscs (Squids, Mussels, Oysters, Octopus) and Crustaceans (Lobsters, Crabs, Shrimp).

The most important factor to look into when choosing fish for a dish; is the color of the flesh. The flesh is described as either ‘white or dark’ and the dark colored fish can range from a pinky-red to orange or even brown in color. The oil content within the flesh determines the color; the higher the oil content the darker the color.
