Florida Seafood at Your Fingertips LIVE
Florida Sea Grant is creating a series of seafood-centric Facebook Live cooking demonstration videos that provide step-by-step guidance for selecting and preparing seafood. In “Seafood at Your Fingertips LIVE” viewers will learn about smart seafood choices, sustainable fisheries, and the health benefits of eating a diet rich in seafood. Agents will also teach about the seasonality of Florida seafood and what can be substituted if a certain product is not available at your local market.
The weekly series begins at 6 p.m. EST on Wednesday, May 13, 2020, and can be found on the Florida Sea Grant Facebook page at www.facebook.com/floridaseagrant.
Recorded videos will be posted here. Agents will also write blogs with recipes and ingredient lists and post them here a week prior to their presentation for viewers who want to cook along with them. These blogs and an ocean of additional information — including recipes, nutrition facts, and videos — can be found on the page below. Happy Cooking!
*Based on available guidance information, it is advised that vulnerable populations such as seniors, pregnant women, people with compromised immune systems, and children ages five and under avoid consuming raw or undercooked seafood.
