Local Fresh Seafood!

I tend to order fatty fish and shellfish when I go out to eat to get my Omega 3s and B12 more easily since I don’t often make these things at home. This picture was from a lunch ordered on a coastal bike ride recently. Yum! I guiltily ate a little local sourdough with it. Who could resist with that butter sauce!!

Getting your Omega 3s and vital B12 through fatty fish and shellfish on a regular basis is not easy. Adding in wanting it to be local, quality and sustainably caught makes it even harder and my local Farmer's Market source often sells fish from Alaska or Washington State. Often when I'm out to eat I try to order some kind of fatty fish or shellfish knowing I don't often have it at home for these reasons.

I read this article on the KQED blog and was excited about the CSA (community supported agriculture) concept spilling into the market for seafood. Though this article is bay area specific, I would bet the concept is catching (no pun intended) on in other parts of the country as well! 

I'm going to try The Sea Forager and next time my fisherman brother is in town plan on taking him on one of the Forager Tours!
