So, what is crustacean shellfish?

Crustacean shellfish are a highly versatile and flavorful ingredient used in many culinary applications. These marine creatures, including shrimp, crab, lobster, and crayfish, have a hard exoskeleton and are rich in protein, vitamins, and minerals. Their distinctive sweet and briny flavor adds depth and complexity to soups, stews, salads, and pasta dishes. Due to their popularity and high demand, crustacean shellfish are widely available fresh, frozen, or canned. However, they can cause severe allergic reactions in some people, so it is essential to exercise caution when cooking with them.
