Taste of the Month: Seafood
Grab your oyster shucker, dig out your favourite chowder recipe, break out your lobster bib and get cracking – because it’s SEAFOOD MONTH at Taste of Nova Scotia.
We’re not shell-fish (pun-intended) – we’re sharing all our Nova Scotia seafood secrets this month! Lobster, scallops, oysters, salmon and mussels are just a few local options for tasting your way around our delicious province.
“In Nova Scotia, you are never far from the ocean. This is where the water runs cold and clear. Where the ocean is a way of life and where the catch is always fresh. It’s a difference you can taste.”
– Nova Scotia Seafood
Seafood at Home: So many seafood options and only three meals a day! We have heaps of locally-inspired seafood recipes for you to try at home. NEW: Don’t miss our Scallop Risotto and Fish Burger recipes (we’ll be sharing them soon!).
Shop Local: Cooking at home? Pick up fresh Nova Scotia seafood from Fisherman’s Market, Clearwater Seafoods, Afishionado, Evan’s Fresh Seafood, Masstown Market’s ‘Catch of the Day’ or Arichat Seafood Market.
Dine Out: If you prefer to let someone else do the cooking, visit Taste of Nova Scotia restaurants across the province. You’ll find menus include everything from traditional lobster dinners, comforting seafood chowders, beer-battered fish & chips, local oyster happy hours and everything in between.
