Last night’s ‘Sunday Nite Din Din’ was dedicated to my recent trip to Monterey where in between meetings I had a chance to sneak off and visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium. It’s been years since I’ve was there and as usual I felt like a giddy child going ‘ooh’ and ‘aah’. And is seemed like summer was already here as the place was packed with googly eyed teenagers taking pics with their phones, so apparently I was in the right place.
The best thing to me always is keeping up with what the Aquarium is doing with their programs and grants – including shark tagging and the Seafood Watch. The Seafood Watch is a program for sustainability of the fish we eat that details out in different regions the Best Choices, the Good Alternatives and what to Avoid. If you don’t have the list of fish that are farmed using environmentally friendly practices, you can get it HERE and you can also download the iOS or Android app.
There are plenty of choices and yesterday I chose farmed Dover Sole, marinating it in a homemade mix of organic herbs, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper and roasting it with marinated olives, cherry tomatoes and artichoke hearts. #Deelish! This is easy cooking people – VERY healthy, organic and allergy-free. And mainly good on your waistline. So make a good choice and cook healthy!
