Seafood lovers took to social media this Seafood Month to share their favorite dishes using #ShowUsYourSeafood. Posts came from across the country and featured both farmed and wild-caught fish and shellfish. Some shared mouth-watering photos of familiar products like lobster and fish cakes. Others talked about lesser known dishes—try the whole grilled scup recipe for yourself—and regional favorites like Hawaiian poke.
Bluefish has a rich flavor and is best served within a day of purchase. Farmed oysters are available year-round and range in flavor from sweet to briny. Visit FishWatch.gov for ideas for how to incorporate both into your meal planning.
Black sea bass has a mild, fresh, and somewhat delicate flavor. It can be paired with a range of foods to add a boost of low-fat protein and magnesium to a meal.
