Get Confident With Seafood this National Seafood Week

10 October 2016

UK - With National Seafood Week 2016 (7-14 October) well underway, CJ Jackson, a seafood expert from Billingsgate Seafood School, gives her tips on the different varieties of fish and the best ways to cook them.

Whether from a fish and chip shop, a restaurant or at home, the nation is being encouraged to increase the amount and variety of seafood and fish in their diet.

Research by Seafish to mark the start of Seafood Week shows that while 85 per cent of us eat fish, almost 40 per cent of us only have it once every two weeks at most, while almost 20 per cent only have it once a month.

There are now around 100 varieties of fish and seafood to choose from in the UK, yet a third of us stick to just one or two varieties.

So to help you broaden your fish-horizons, CJ Jackson gives her top tips on what to look out for and how to cook different varieties of fish.
