In this blog we’ll explore the flavours of Mara Seaweed and discuss how to pair our products with various sustainable, seasonal fish.
A natural pairing
Seaweed and fish are naturally complementary. Cooking them together is a great place to start if you want to eat seaweed but expect it to have a strong fishy taste. (In our experience, which Mara product is most ‘fishy’ varies from one person to the next, but of course they all do taste more or less of the sea!)
Eating seasonally is eating sustainably
Like any natural product, seaweed is seasonal. Mara harvests different varieties at different times of year. Once dried, they have a long shelf life and can be enjoyed at any time.
Fish is no different. But because you’re eating it fresh, throughout the year you might need to adjust which species you cook. We recommend you find out which fish is in season by reviewing Seafood Scotland’s seasonality chart, or download the Marine Conservation Society’s Good Fish Guide app for a definitive guide to sustainable fish.
You could also sign up to Fishbox’s subscription service - it’s a great way to get fresh sustainable, Scottish seafood delivered to your door. No research required!
