I first discovered seviche in Barcelona about 25 years ago. It was my first time in a tapas bar. I think I tasted about twenty different things. Two things stood out. The seviche and a bowl of salty, just fried padron peppers. Today I find myself craving seviche as much as I do sushi. That's saying a lot.
And while on the topic of Spain, after you've had a chance to watch the video below you can check out some of my other foodie exploits in Spain. Enjoy!
And yet again the European Union leads the world towards a sainer future. This time it's a stronger continent wide shark finning ban on. The video below addresses the animal cruelty aspects of shake fishing but also spends time on the issues of over-fhishing and waste. It is worth a watch if you want to see why the ban is important. At the 12 minute and 30 second mark it becomes very hopeful.
I just can't get enough fish in my life. EVERY time I eat a piece of any type of fish I want to make it an even more regular part of my diet. Due to the high price of fish compared however and serious concerns I have with abuse of our oceans, I hesitate when standing in front of the fish counter. If this experience resonates with you then take a peak at the rest of this post for some help.
As winter slowly decends upon us I invite you to celebrate episode 100 of the Culinary Compass with me on a warm sandy beach. We'll go fishing and then unwind in the ethereal warmth of an outdoor shower. Intrigued?
