Something fishy might be going on…

These seafood secrets will make you see food differently.

Supermarkets may be convenient, but they just aren’t the best place to shop for meat. If you don’t live near a fishmonger, however, the supermarket seafood is probably safe.

We simply want to raise your awareness of a few factors that might influence your buying choices. We understand if you have no other option than to buy your fish at the supermarket; not everyone lives a short distance from a full-on fish market with knowledgeable fishmongers at the ready. The best consumer is an educated one, and when it comes to seafood, it pays to be educated. Do some research into the fish you’re buying, and make your decisions based on what’s sustainable, how it’s caught or farmed, where it’s from, and how fresh it is.

If these more sustainable, selective seafood options are outside of your price range, however, don’t let this article scare you off from buying supermarket fish! Seafood such as fish and shellfish offer protein, micronutrients, and other health benefits. The real risks of buying supermarket seafood are minimal at best.

We’re not talking about supermarkets like Whole Foods or independent retailers with full seafood counters; those are usually just as reputable as a fish market. We’re talking about supermarkets where all the meat and seafood are on Styrofoam trays wrapped in cellophane, labeled with as few details as legally required. At some supermarkets, you’re left completely to your own devices as to which fish to purchase, and even though the fish may look fresh, there’s a lot more going on below the surface.

Don’t eat cicadas if you’re allergic to seafood, FDA warns

Cicadas are popping up by the billions across the Eastern United States this season, and are subsequently finding their way to the dining tables of adventurous foodies.

But people with a seafood allergy should avoid the crunchy insect, which are related to crustaceans, federal health officials warned Wednesday.

The advice from the Food and Drug Administration comes as the current group of cicadas, known as Brood X, emerges from the ground on its regular 17-year cycle. The shrimp-sized, beady-eyed bugs with almost translucent wings are being prepared by professional chefs and at home in a variety of ways this year.

Some prefer them deep fried and others like them tossed into their Caesar salad. Bun Lai, the chef of a sustainable sushi restaurant in Connecticut, will present them in a fine-dining experience at his farm. And Frank’s RedHot, the 100-year-old hot sauce brand, released a string of cicada recipes including: caramel ‘cada corn, chili lime ‘cada tacos and a cicada “parm” slider.
