Seafood is one of the most versatile food ingredients with there being more than 100 different types available around the coast of the UK. Not only is it delicious, it is low in calories, high in protein and rich in the vitamins, minerals and natural oils that does wonders for our bodies.

Eating a selection of different fresh fish and seafood regularly is said to help protect us from an array of serious diseases including heart disease, alzheimer’s, cancer, depression and arthritis. It also helps us to maintain healthly skin and brain function.

The Food Standards Agency advises at least two portions a week with one of those portions ideally being an oily fish which can help to reduce the risk of heart disease and improve your chances of survival following a heart attack.
