Get your seafood supply fresh and fast without even leaving your home.
With wet markets becoming a rather high-risk place to visit during this period of time, it gets harder for you to get fresh ingredients like vegetables, meats, fish and all kinds of seafood. Some of you even avoid unnecessary visits to the grocery store, opting to order everything online. But when it comes to seafood, it’s quite hard to be sure of its freshness.
If you’re at the market, you might be prodding the fish, check for firmness and maybe sniff to ensure there’s no funky smell. You’d also notice customers pry open the flaps to check the colour of the gills. Some wouldn’t even mind the store-bought frozen ones that are already processed but if you can enjoy the freshest catch of the day delivered right to your doorstep, why not?
Fresh from the sea, most of these seafood and whole fish go through a quick-freezing process and are vacuum-packed to maintain its freshness. Depending on where these seafood delivery services come from, you can rest assured that everything is sealed and sent out daily to ensure that its content remains in good condition when these boxes reach you.
So if you struggle to pick up the freshest seafood from your neighbourhood grocer, let the experts do it for you.
