You want to purchase only the finest seafood items when you shop for fish, shellfish, lobster, and other similar delicacies. Quality is of the utmost importance. You can tell good quality fish and seafood from poor quality options in a number of ways. Use the following techniques to determine whether any seafood market you visit is actually worth shopping at. First, what does the place smell like? Does it smell rank and briny, the way many markets do? If so, be careful. What you are smelling is the actual smell of rotting seafood in some form or another. Now, this doesn't necessarily mean that the items on the shelves in this store are actually rotting. It simply means that the store is not as clean as it should be, and that some materials, somewhere, are rotting or going bad. So check the smell when you first enter. At Finster Murphy's you won't notice a smell like this. Our commitment to quality and freshness puts us a cut above. Another factor you can examine is the actually look and feel of the fish themselves. Fish that are high in quality are almost always fresh. Fresh fish tend to have a glistening, metallic shine. It the fish appears to have gone dull in patches, be wary, as this is a sign of decay. Make sure the fish that you plan to purchase is glistening and metallic in its hue. Also, check the texture. Touch the fish, if the seller will let you. It should be resilient. An older fish will simply give way and retain the imprint of your finger. Use this information to help you find the best Fort Lauderdale fresh seafood market. We're positive you’ll find that it is Finster Murphy's.
