Hints and tips

  • Check weight of seafood and increase cooking time according to size.
  • Lobster should have an internal cooking temperature of 63°C if using a food probe.
  • Buying sustainable seafood is important for maintaining healthy oceans and preserving marine ecosystems. Here are some tips on how to buy sustainable seafood, look for seafood that is certified by a reputable sustainability organization such as MSC. Choose seafood that is in season and locally sourced. Eating seafood in season reduces the demand for out-of-season seafood, which can be overfished or harvested using unsustainable methods.
