Fresher is Better!

Fresher is Better!

When it comes to seafood, that “fresh” item in your grocery store might not be as fresh as you think. Seafood should be used within a day or two of purchase – it can only last a few days in the refrigerator. However, fish and shellfish last a lot longer when frozen – two to six months longer. The items that you’re buying at the market might have been frozen months ago. To be fair, most stores tell you when an item has been previously frozen either on the boat or by the processor or distributor, but not always. Whether fresh or thawed, seafood should always be used within a maximum of three days.

Get Fresh!

When you buy fresh seafood online, it’s a great way to save money by eliminating the steps between the dock and your kitchen. Imagine being able to buy lobster tail and claw meat by the pound, fresh oysters, and delicious scallops for a delicious dinner, or a swanky take-to-work lunch. Refine favorite recipes, and eat delicious seafood with more bang for your budget buck. It’s easy to make a great dinner in a matter of minutes, or even a big seafood stew in your slow cooker. You can also keep it simple with a couple of lobster rolls or beer-battered clams or calamari.

Every Life Needs More Lobster

Lobster is the king of seafood treats and was one of the favored foods of early New Englanders. It was even on the menu at the first Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, overfishing and pollution have taken a toll on some previously healthy populations while others have rebounded over and above expectations, so it is especially important to source your lobster and other seafood from sustainable stocks and reputable dealers when you buy fresh seafood online.
