Seafood is a well-loved delicacy in many parts of the world, including those with impressive culinary reputations such as France, Spain and Italy. It only makes sense then that the U.S., the world's largest melting pot, would also be home to some excellent seafood restaurants.

Seafood has been long praised for its many health benefits, including its rich levels of Omega-3 fatty acids, long known to be incredibly beneficial, and the Irish people even have legends about the wisdom and ability that they believed salmon to possess.
