Give Mum the Gift of the Ocean’s Fruits

Give Mum the Gift of the Ocean’s Fruits

Mother’s Day. It creeps around the corner every year like it was just yesterday when you were going through a mental list of everything you could possibly get to show how much you love her. We’re no strangers to it, it’s always tricky coming up with something personalised and extra special for mum, and there are only so many bath bombs and body lotions you can give before they end up stuffed at the back of the bathroom cupboard for months. So if you’re in the same boat, there’s no need to panic. We’ve got some fresh ideas that might just put you at the top of the list for the favourite child status. The gift of food is so underrated when it comes to what to buy for the big day, so we’ve put together a mouth-watering selection of ocean goodies we guarantee your mum will be raving about for weeks to come.

Whatever the season, you really can’t go wrong with a seafood feast — and what better excuse for it than Mother’s Day. While there are so many tantalising treats to choose from for mum, we have to acknowledge a few of the fan favourites. Take lobster for example, not only is it a hugely gourmet dish but there are so many ways to cook it to suit everyone’s palette (even though mums is the most important). From simmering it in a flavour-packed risotto to melting it into your signature macaroni and cheese, the opportunities are endless when it comes to devouring this staple seafood.

Then there are prawns. There’s just no way you can forget these juicy delights. A BBQ go-to, prawns go down a real treat at any family get together and are designed to be enjoyed by all. While there’s a bit of a knack for cooking them just right, you really can’t go wrong with a bit of butter, garlic and chilly to douse them in — we promise, mum will love it.

And what about oysters? Now that’s one delicacy that will definitely secure you a spot in mum’s good books. A creamy, rich flavour that seafood fanatics just can’t get enough of, they’re the perfect addition to any seafood feast and come in such a wide variety of species, each with their own unique flavour.

While we could go on forever listing every seafood FishMe has on board, we reckon it’s a whole lot better if you try a selection of the very best for yourselves this Mother’s Day. That’s why we’re doing the honour of boxing up some of the best produce the lakes, rivers and ocean have to offer, plus a few extras, to make your job easier and your mum’s special day one to remember.
