Three sensational seafood spots around the world

Archeological records suggest that humans have been preparing and eating seafood for at least 165,000 years, and it’s safe to say we’ve gotten pretty good at it. Some of the world’s greatest delicacies come from our planet’s oceans, lakes, and rivers, from elegant slices of sashimi in Japan to meaty lobster rolls in Maine.

Sashimi at dawn at Tokyo's Tsukiji Market

There are vanishingly few things in life worth getting up at 3 am for; seeing the tuna auction at Tokyo’s hallowed Tsukiji Market – the world’s largest fish market – is one of them. The auctioneers chant and wave their hands, in an almost dance-like fashion, as prospective buyers solemnly examine the wares with small flashlights.

Post-auction head to one of the market’s food stalls for a classic Tsukiji sashimi breakfast. Glistening slices of tuna, salmon wedges the color of sunrise, tender shrimp, unctuous little heaps of uni (sea urchin) – it’s a work of art on a plate.

Enjoy the freshest fish for lunch in Essaouira

Practically every corner of this whitewashed, windswept Moroccan coastal town is just begging to be photographed. No place more so than the postcard-perfect port, where blue fishing boats bob gently at their moorings and rows of seafood stalls hawk gleaming piles of prawns, dorados, eels, sardines and more.

Pick the product you want and vendors will cook it up for you and deliver it to your picnic table. Tear into grill-blackened fish with generous squeezes of lemon, mopping up the juices with hunks of freshly-baked bread. Just don’t forget to take a picture first!

A lobster roll road trip in Maine

The classic Maine lobster roll is a thing of beauty. In its most basic (and, dare we say, best) form, it’s nothing but hunks of fresh lobster meat with a slick of mayonnaise, served on a griddled and buttered split top hot dog bun.

At the height of Maine summer, you can find lobster rolls at restaurants, seasonal pop-up stalls and seafood shacks up and down the state’s more than 200 miles of coastline.
