Fillet it, Fry it, Sushi it!!!

The best choice of Meat 365 Days & the best source of Protein & Omega-3 Fatty acids!!

Yes, you heard it right it is the best choice all around the year for a healthy life style, they come in all size and shape, vary taste from sea to river, can be eaten semi-raw in the form of Sushi (My preferable way) can be Filleted for Pan fry, grilled, or just boil it break it down and have it with a green salad, all taste so much great!!! Am here today to talk about the choice of fish food available in the local market which most of us ignore, even restaurants can try and see how it would help them elevate their presence…

Choice of Fish!!

You know there is a perception that only few fish are considered a delicacy and are a better option when it comes to the choice of Fish, it is WRONG !!

Salmon (Alaskan) // COD // Herring // Mahi Mahi // Mackerel // Perch // Trout // Striped Base // Tuna // Pollock and a few more as far as I’ve read it and seen it right.

Its like these fish options are the only suitable meat to try and are treated elite in class, they all taste good I accept that but, the Ocean is Vast there are tones of other options to chose from, people have to explore a bit more to learn about other fish options which are in their reach and taste just as good as any other fish !!! this only makes Fish available for everyone and not just for the fancy…

Let me give a small list of viable options (Mostly from the Indian & Pacific Oceans)

Red & Yellow Snapper // Black & White Pomfret // Bengal Carp // Malabar Anchovy // White Mullet // Seer and these are just the tip of the ice burg, there are lot which can explored and tried…
