Last Monday Hubby took me out for a non-Valentine’s dinner. We went to an amazing restaurant in Hamilton, Shakespeare’s. Everything about this place was amazing and we felt like king and queen with the service they provided.
When I go out to eat I tend to order things I would never eat at home. Typically it’s anything meat, since I rarely eat meat and almost never cook it at home. However if there is a new fish on the menu (something other than salmon or halibut) you can bet I’m all over it. Fish is not only tasty but a really healthy dish – win win….or so I thought.
I’m telling my friend about this amazing meal and then she springs it on me – Chilean sea bass is almost endangered.
Later on I Google and, yup, low and behold this fish is on it’s way. Activists use the term “over fished”. One source suggest to ask where the fish is from to ensure that it wasn’t poached illegally. Most people say just to avoid it all together since the popularity increases the revenue for poaching.
I will admit – this was probably one of the best tasting fish I have ever eaten. But now I am up there with the kinds of assholes that eat bald eagles and black rhinos.
