So, what is shellfish?

Shellfish are a type of seafood that includes various types of mollusks and crustaceans with hard exoskeletons such as clams, oysters, shrimp, crab, and lobster. These ocean-dwelling delicacies are a rich source of protein, vitamins, and minerals, notably zinc, iron, and vitamin B12. They can be cooked in numerous ways, from grilling to steaming, and consumed raw or cooked. However, shellfish can cause allergic reactions in some individuals, so it's important to exercise caution when consuming them. Overall, shellfish is a versatile ingredient that adds savory flavors and textures to any dish.
