So, what is molluscan shellfish?

Molluscan shellfish are a diverse group of seafood that includes clams, oysters, mussels, and scallops, among others. These shellfish have a hard protective shell that encases their soft and flavorful flesh, making them a popular ingredient in many cuisines worldwide. Molluscan shellfish are a great source of protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and essential minerals such as iron, zinc, and selenium. They can be enjoyed raw, steamed, baked, grilled, or fried, and their subtle briny flavor pairs well with a variety of seasonings and sauces. However, it's important to note that some people may be allergic to molluscan shellfish, so it's essential to check for any allergies before consuming them.
