Samudree Bhojan OR Machhli tatha Kavach-PraaNiyon kaa Bhojan
Explanation:
Please note that seafood is a wider term and it includes some other sea creatures also in addition to fish. Seafood has been defined as follows:

Edible fish or shellfish from the sea.

And shellfish means the following:

An aquatic animal, such as a mollusk or crustacean, that has a shell or shell-like exoskeleton.

Hence, we can't restrict our suggestion to fish i.e. Machhli only because it encompasses mollusk or crustacean also.

Thus there are two ways to translate this sentence:

1. Doctor (or chikitsak) ne usse Samudree Bhojan naa karne ko kahaa hai.

2. Doctor (or chikitsak) ne usse Machhli aur Kavach PraaNiyon kaa bhojan karne ko manaa kiya hai..

Shellfish means Kavach-PraaNee.

Hope this helps.
