    Tips on buying seafood :-

    A dock or a fish market is the best place to buy seafood. Always inquire when the fresh catch arrives. Generally it in the morning or sometime in the early afternoon and don’t buy stuff that has been sitting on ice for too long.

    On the contrary, if you don’t have access to a dock, then buy it from one of the good supermarkets in your area. Keep an eye on their hygiene practices and how they handle seafood. The problem is seafood tends to dull and rot quickly compared to other meat.

    Fresh seafood should not have a strong unpleasant smell.

    And now – the recipe.
