Love Seafood? Check Out These Recipes for Sustainable Seafood!

By now you have heard us talk about sustainable seafood and why it is important to be mindful when choosing which seafood to eat and which options are best to avoid. Embracing the use of sustainable seafood is one of the best ways we can all contribute to our oceans’ health, and we have three easy ways you can be fish-friendly.

  1. Download the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch app on your smart phone – available at the Apple Store and Google Play.
  2. Be mindful and make smart choices about what seafood you eat and where you buy it. Several local grocery stores provide sustainable seafood options: H-E-B, Fiesta, Kroger and Whole Foods, just to name a few.
  3. If you are out enjoying a meal at your favorite restaurant, you can ask them if the seafood they serve is sustainable.

After your purchase your sustainable seafood from the store, take a look at one of our delicious recipes. Let us know which one is your favorite!
