Recently I got a call from my friends at Clover Leaf and they had a big question: "Do you think you could re-invent fast food?" While pondering this question the other shoe dropped: "Can you do it using our tuna, salmon and flavoured tuna products, limit the number of ingredients to five, and get each recipe on the table in five minutes?" Interesting challenge, and I was certainly willing to give it a try, although I quickly realized they were asking for more than a new way to whip up a regular old tuna melt.

Allergic reactions to seafood occur when the body's immune system has an abnormal reaction to fish, crustaceans and/or shellfish.

Crustaceans are aquatic animals that have jointed legs, a hard shell and no backbone. This includes crab, crayfish, lobsters, prawns and shrimp.

Shellfish, on the other hand, include bivalve molluscs, which have a hinged two-part shell (for example, oysters, scallops, mussels and clams). Shellfish includesl other molluscs as well, such as whelk, snails, squid and octopus.
