Salmon Sisters

It's becoming more and more important to understand our food and its sources. For example most seafood is fraudulently mislabelled as being something other than it really is. Most fish in supermarkets travelled through Chinese factories where it was frozen and re-frozen several times, with unknown additives put into it. Scary stuff.

Which is why it's beneficial to your health and better for the world to eat good seafood. Wild, not farmed, and from trusted sources who care about sustainability.

Last year I discovered a small company started by two sisters who commercially fish in Alaska and sell directly to consumers (Salmon Sisters). Their fish is fresher and better than what's sitting in the supermarket. Plus they sell cute clothing celebrating nature's bounty. (I gave some of their shirts to friends as holiday gifts) I've had good success with their products and encourage you to give them a try. They ship everywhere.

  1. I will have to look this up. I grew up in the south pacific and fresh fish was at the our fingertips whenever we wanted. Im not a big fan of fresh water fish, but Im learning. Cute clothes is always a win too :)

  2. Thank you for info, I will look them up and order. Years ago my parents ran a small family owned butcher shop. I can remember having to cook meat quickly before it spoiled. Ever wonder why now a chicken or pound of ground beef can stay in your fridge for many days with no sign of deterioration? We really need to be aware of how our food is being processed. Here on the Jersey Shore I can find fresh caught fish and eggs right off the farm. A bit more money but worth it IMO.

  4. I just spent some time in Florida and loved the access to fresh fish. Where you are on LI should not be an issue. We do well with fresh fish on the Jersey shore but I know the fish we get in Westchester county may be a bit aged.
    It is important to know the source since the basa and tilapia that comes from Asia is something that I stay away from at all costs.

  6. We watch for the "Oceanwise" logo here - being on the west coast, it's important to buy sustainable seafood. http://seafood.ocean.org/ - most restaurants and grocery stores here use it. Good for you, to pay attention to this!

  8. I have never heard of this pair, but I will be checking them out. I love seafood, but agree that too much of it is sourced from overseas and goes through a scary process before it hits the dinner table. Thanks for sharing this!
