I eat a lot of wild caught salmon and haddock, flounder, and sole. All wild caught.

Saturday was grilled swordfish. The fish market had pieces for $4.99/pound. I made my standard rice vinegar/soy/sesame oil/toasted sesame seed/wasabi powder/chopped ginger/chopped scallion sauce. Caprese salad with tomatoes and basil from the plants on the deck.



Sunday was a late lunch at the beach for 6 people. Boneless chicken thighs marinated in store bought Korean BBQ sauce and grilled on the Weber. Corn on the cob. Spinach salad. No seafood.


Lunch today was shrimp, spicy linguica, vidalia onion, garlic, red bell pepper, and Goya sazon con azafran seasoning. No clue what we'll do for dinner. I have a dozen littleneck clams I need to use. I might just toss them on the Weber until they open and eat them with cocktail sauce.


I have a couple of pounds of scallops in the freezer I need to use. A pound of bacon in the fridge. I used up the tooth picks on Sunday serving the sliced Korean BBQ chicken thighs. Scallops & bacon soon.

Thanks. That's why I added "or so I read" to my post. I don't personally know.

Plus, farm feed makers save money by bulking up the fish’s food pellets with soy - I stay away from anything soy because it affects your hormones.

Only WILD for me!
I prefer wild-caught because I think there might be something to the farm-raised cautions. Humans are going to produce food in the way that is most profitable for them. That's their priority, not our health. However, if I had the inclination, I'd probably like to see who paid for these studies on both sides.

about 2 times a month. Seafood is expensive here in NY. But I do buy shrimp a lot and salmon for my DH. My DH would like to eat it everyday if we could afford to. I refused to eat canned fish other than tuna for tuna fish salad and anything farm raised.

we eat seafood 2-3x a week; wild caught. So that makes it about 9-12 seafood meals a month. One of our kids have quite few food allergies; cannot eat eggs in any form, all form of tree nuts, no PB, etc. He doesn't seem to like meat as much rest of family do, but loves seafood though! Since seafood is a protein all 4 of us can eat reliably, 2-3x a week it is for us.
