Restaurants in Scotland to celebrate National Seafood Week

National Seafood Week (4-11 October 2019) is here, which is a yearly celebration encouraging people to eat more of this delicious superfood.

It is recommended that everyone eats two portions of seafood a week.  You can boost cognitive function and support heart health, down to its high content of awesome omega 3. Seafood is also a powerhouse when it comes to vitamins and minerals; zinc, iron, copper, selenium and B vitamins are essential for optimum function of the immune and nervous systems. Packed with protein, seafood also keeps you fuller for longer and aids growth and repair.

So, to help you get your ‘two-a-week’ we’ve shortlisted some places across Scotland where you can make Fish the dish!
