A&T 230GM Seafood Basket


You do not get much variety seafood meals other than the Seafood basket. You thought fish and chips were good? Think again. A seafood basket, also known as the Fisherman’s basket, is a fried dish usually consisting of fried seafood including fish fillet, prawns and calamari. Additional foods used can include fried scallops, oysters and crab sticks. It typically includes one or more dipping sauces, such as cocktail sauce, and may include chips. It is a similar dish to fish and chips.

The seafood basket place of origin is the United Kingdom. I could not find or pin down the year that it came into existence. On the surface, battered seafood seems to be a slightly healthier option than most takeaway food. After all, those ocean life are supposed to be chock-full of protein and vitamins.

However, once it’s been encased in batter and chucked in the deep fryer, any health benefits have been changed in a tidal wave of fatty oil. In the case of the Long John Silver’s Big Catch, the dish was found to contain almost the same amount of oil-soaked batter as actual seafood.

Even though it may contain 100% fat, every once in a while having the seafood basket in your diet can be good for you. You need Tartare for this meal in my opinion. I recommend this food to people who enjoy seafood with many variety depending on your choice and regional cooked or prepared differences.
