The Most Popular Types Of Seafood You Should Eat 

Seafood is incredibly versatile and offers a wide variety of food. There’s no denying the unique flavor that fresh seafood brings to the table, which is why there are so many unique dishes to try. Here are some of the most popular kinds of seafood that you can enjoy at Costas Inn.


Fresh salmon features vibrant pink, flaky flesh, and a strong fishy flavor. It goes great with spices, marinades, and other flavors. This fish is usually the main dish and can be paired with various sides. Most commonly, salmon is smoked, baked, or grilled. Salmon also provides impressive health benefits. It’s rich in omega-3 fatty acids and an excellent protein source.

Crab Meat

Crab meat is undoubtedly something to be savored – its sweet, soft texture and delicate flavor make it a great addition to many dishes worldwide. A true delight for seafood and crab lovers, one of our favorite ways to eat crab involves turning it into delectable crab cakes. You can also enjoy more simple steamed crab legs dipped in a butter sauce or even varieties such as soft-shell and blue crabs.


These popular shellfish are often served fresh from the sea, shucked open, and served cold on the half-shell. They can also be added to various seafood dishes to provide an unexpected pop of flavor. Regardless of how you eat them, oysters are a culinary delight. The salty taste, creamy texture, and a hint of sweetness are reasons seafood lovers enjoy these shellfish. While some prefer oysters simple and raw, they can also be grilled for an enhanced taste.


Shrimp is a delicious and flexible seafood choice that can be enjoyed at any meal. Even non-seafood eaters tend to be drawn to these tasty little crustaceans. The flavor combinations can be delightful with other seafood like calamari or mussels. Their mild yet unique flavor makes them a fantastic addition to any dish.
