GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT CRUSTACEAN

The term 'crustaceans' has found its place, especially in kitchens across this region, referring to Crustacea used as culinary delights. Among the array of crustaceans, shrimp is arguably the most beloved in Europe, with other species such as lobsters, crabs, and crayfish also gracing our tables. All of them have earned their status as exquisite sea delicacies. However, it may come as a surprise that this wasn't always the case. These creatures were once shunned by epicures, primarily due to their peculiar appearances. Today, they enjoy immense popularity, particularly among connoisseurs.
Beneath their tough exteriors lies a unique taste, boasting first-class, refined flesh with a subtle, sweet to nutty aroma. Our crustaceans are promptly frozen following processing and maintained well below freezing temperatures through innovative techniques. This ensures they preserve their top-quality and full flavor right up to the moment they reach your doorstep.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT BUYING SHELLFISH

What do I have to consider if I want to buy shellfish online?

The first thing to do is make sure you are ordering from a reputable supplier. Seals are a good indicator. Customer reviews are also a reliable source of information. Then check the quality of the products. Origin and sustainability are particularly important.

Why do shellfish turn red when cooked?

Lobsters, for example, are black and blue when alive, but turn an appetising red colour when cooked. During cooking, the green protein in the crustacean separates from the red astaxanthin, giving it its red hue. The pigment astaxanthin is a carotenoid. It is also responsible for the reddish colour of tomatoes, for example.

How healthy is consuming shellfish?
