One Fish, Two Fish


It's seems our (not) friends at the fish markets down state have been passing along less than acceptable fish to their patrons.  In a sting operation aimed to net (pun intended) disreputable vendons, researchers discovered that some of the more expensive brands are not as high quality as they should be.  Or are not even the species that they purport to be.  That red snapper that you overpaid for might actually be talapia.  And the albacore tuna perfectly seared on your plate might actually have been caught in the Hudson.  Well... let's hope not!

But not to worry:  the ground beef, chicken breasts, and the turkey and vegetables roasting in your Sunday oven still contain all of the growth hormones and irradiation that they have always claimed.  Bon Appetit!

  1. All the more reason to buy local. Farmers markets are fresh, fun and probably more honest than big market producers.
