In this category you will find recipes that contain shellfish or crustaceans as the main ingredient. Some of the recipes might be strange or unusual but hopefully they will give you some ideas and inspiration.
Shellfish should always be tightly closed. Crabs and lobsters should feel heavy for their size. Raw prawns should be firm and springy with bright shells.
Really fresh shellfish should have a pleasant sea aroma and strangely, should not smell fishy. It should never have a strong ammonia smell or smell the least bit nasty.
Rely on your senses, if doesn't look, feel or smell great, then you're probably best to leave it where it is.
Don't be put off cooking crab or lobster dishes by the thought of having to kill them first. Most supermarkets and fishmongers stock freshly cooked crustaceans.
We have an ever-growing category containing various fish types here.
