Besides ending uncontrolled polluting of the ocean, we can shift consumption of threatened species to more sustainable ones.
Bobby Flay's Fish Tacos
Fish tacos are delicious and very simple to make. Use a white, flaky fish like mahi mahi or orata. You can fry the fish or, in this case, grill which is much healthier. Be sure to serve with all the sides - that's what makes a great fish taco.

Choosing sustainable seafood means the seafood is harvested in a way that doesn't harm other sea creatures or harm the ecosystem where it is found.

Tequila Marinated Mahi Mahi with Avocado-Tomatillo Sauce

Clam, Pork, Sausage, and Bacon Stew
A number of traditional Portuguese dishes are based on the unlikely, but flavorful, combination of pork and shellfish." A cataplana is a hinged, domed, classic Portuguese pan that closes with two side handles creating a tight seal, so that foods cook in their own juices traditionally made from hammered copper. A dutch oven is a good alternative if you don't have a cataplana.
Bay Scallops with Mushrooms, Peppers, and Grilled Italian Sausage
In this dish we use tiny, succulent Nantucket Bay scallops and sometimes present them as a first course served in a scallop shell. If bay scallops are unobtainable, larger sea scallops may be substituted.
Pan-seared King Salmon with Blood Orange Vinaigrette
King salmon has a lovely rose color and a high fat content, making its flavor very rich and sweet. The acidic vinaigrette offsets the sweetness perfectly, and the colors are an absolute symphony on the plate.

This sable fish recipe was created to replace gefilte fish in this traditional Passover entree. Sable fish is soft-textured with a mild flavor and, when cooked, has a similar flaky texture similar to sea bass.
Blackened Salmon with Chipotle Squash Puree and Mango Rice
A little spicy, a little sweet, this recipe combines some of my fall favorites. Fresh and earthy butternut squash pairs perfectly with salmon. Sweet, tangy mangos cut through the smoky, spicy chipotles to create a dish that is a little exotic and exciting yet well-balanced.
Crab Toasts with Sriracha Mayonnaise
