Last month we told you all about the health benefits of mussels but what are the health benefits of all shellfish?
- Extra energy
- Glowing skin
- Healthy heart
To name a few, it’s hard to beat shellfish.
Shellfish are full of nutrients, minerals, and those excellent omega-3s. They are quick, easy and (above all) a delicious way to improve your diet. It's recommended you have 2 portions of fish a week.
Scottish Shellfish – On your doorstep!
Luckily, in Scotland we have a wide array of choice, and you can be sure that whatever you choose the journey from sea to plate is as quick as can be. All you should do is look forward to including fresh, delicate shellfish in your new favourite recipes.
Mussels, oysters, crab and lobster are extremely low in fat and high in protein which is good news for anybody hoping to lose weight without forgoing flavour. A portion of shellfish will leave you feeling full and satisfied, all without sacrificing the calories.
What can I eat with shellfish?
The options are endless, but the classics are always a winner:
- Mussels in white wine
- Lobster with a little lemon
- Crab and avocado salad
- Oysters with a touch of tabasco
What could be more mouth-watering, while still being so very good for you?
If the above isn’t reason enough to tuck into some tasty Scottish shellfish, they also contain zinc, copper, magnesium and iron, all necessary minerals that will improve health overall. Iron deficiencies can leave you feeling tired and weak, so making sure to take in enough is a great way to boost energy levels, naturally.
Shellfish for dinner?
With such versatile, tempting produce available on our doorstep, fresh and sweet and ready for your recipes, it is almost a crime to ignore Scottish shellfish! With all the above benefits it’s surely time to add more mussels, oysters, crab and lobster to your diet?
