DOUBLE FOODIE ALERT! THE FISH SAY, SPRING IS HERE

Good morning to all of our beloved friends and clients and to those of you who emailed me regarding the "Fish Fraud" post from Tuesday, thank you for honoring us with your trust in answering your very important questions #eatrealfish.

Moving forward, the FDA has just approved the distribution of Genetically Engineered Salmon to be sold in the United States...mmm, this reminds me of when my Grandmother used to make Genetically Engineered Perogies...good memories. All kidding aside, if you come into Metro and see GE Salmon available, then just assume one thing, you missed my funeral...RIP Fishman. But since I am still alive and value yours and my well-being, there will be no GE Salmon at Metro...sorry to disappoint the Sci-Fi fans out there. Moving on, it seems as though the calendar might be off a bit. What the Sushi Grade Fluke are you talking about Fishman? I'll tell you, it appears as though the first day of Spring is March the 20th but based on the "Catch" we will have this weekend, I believe that tulip has sprung...I know what you are thinking "We Can't Take it Anymore ..spit it out. Okay for starters Shad and Shad Roe are back in the store, are you feeling Daffodils yet? Oh, you want more, no problem, how about SOFT SHELL CRABS AND WILD ALASKAN KING SALMON? Boom, now picture your Half-Lebanese Fishmonger dropping the mic. Now I don't know about you but if that is not a "forced Forsythia, I don't know what is.

But seriously, we will have so much gorgeous fish this weekend and should you feel like creating a feast of your own I sincerely hope you will enjoy today's recipes featuring Barbecued Whole Branzino with a Minted Chimichurri Drizzle & Salt and Pepper Pan Seared Snapper with a Spanish Potato Salad. As always, thank you for your trust, patronage and kindness.
