This week I read a great article by Mommy Made Green about FARM RAISED FISH. Her blog post didn't make me feel guilty for eating farm raised fish, just a bit alarmed and surprised that I had avoided really understanding the importance of wild fish for so long.
I'm smart enough to buy wild fish when presented with an obvious choice, but I've never sought it out or hesitated to buy fish in a restaurant. Now all that has changed!
Once we deplete our current supply in the freezer, I'm committing to only feeding my family WILD CAUGHT FISH!
Now that I live inland, this will be much harder, but I don't eat fish all that often, so I think we'll be able to find/afford it often enough. When we lived in Oregon, we bought A LOT of tuna right off a fisherman's boat and canned it. We still have a few dozen jars of our fresh, wild tuna... YUM!
Here's our favorite tuna dinner recipe: (ahem...I wrote about my first go-round with this recipe when I first started blogging over 2 years ago. You are welcome to read that post here... and now I'm going to go lie down under my car while you all laugh at me ;)
