Why buy seafood for Christmas in advance?

Anticipating the purchase of seafood for the Christmas menu is a prudent decision for several reasons. First of all, it allows to ensure top quality products at more convenient prices compared to the high costs that usually characterise the dates close to the festivities. During this period, increasing demand and speculative practices raise prices considerably.

In addition, the weather is not always in our favour, as winter weather conditions are sometimes not the best. In fact, they could frustrate our idea of enjoying a wonderful evening with the pleasant taste of Galician seafood. In the face of this, buying in advance would give you the opportunity to secure the products you want, avoiding the possibility of running out of them.

Factors to consider before buying seafood for Christmas

Buying seafood for Christmas meals in good time is very useful, as it saves us from unpleasant surprises at the last minute. However, it is key to consider a few tips to ensure that the quality of this food remains impeccable until the planned date. The most important thing is to preserve the unmistakable flavour and texture that distinguish the best Galician seafood products.

By choosing us, you can be sure that you will have the best Galician seafood on the market for the Christmas holidays. We are here to advise you and help you enjoy your seafood in the best conditions.

Proper freezing and thawing of the product

Freezing is one of the most practical and quickest techniques when it comes to preserving and extending the shelf life of food. However, it is of great importance to freeze food properly, and if the product is already frozen, as soon as it arrives home we must return it to the cold chain it requires.

On the other hand, transferring seafood directly from the freezer to the fridge is the most recommended way to defrost seafood for Christmas. This will require between 12-24 hours. Therefore, you need to do this well in advance. This method will allow the seafood to come to room temperature gradually and safely.

Seafood and fish most in demand for Christmas

If you're still not sure what to buy, here are the seafood and fish that sell best at Christmas:

  • Salmon.
  • Tuna.
  • Sea bass.
  • Hake.
  • Cod.
  • Nice.

As far as seafood is concerned, the most popular here in Spain are clams, prawns, king prawns and lobster. However, bear in mind that there are certain shellfish that you cannot freeze and, consequently, you would need to buy them at the last minute, such as the fine clam or lemon clam.

Extra tip: Make sure you leave enough space before you buy.

When anticipating seafood purchases for Christmas, keep in mind that you should consider the issue of space, as typical freezers often have limited capacity.

Why seafood is a good choice for Christmas celebrations
