We are going out for a fish fry tonight. I enjoy fish on occasion but I had a business associate who spent years in the grocery business advise never to buy fish on a Monday.
The business associate who is taking us out for fish has no religious reasons, it is just an excuse to get together.
When do you eat fish? And why?
I'm curious to hear the reasoning behind not buying fish on a Monday. Is it more likely to be spoiled or something?
I'm having meatless Fridays for religious reasons, but I'm also just a seafood lover in general, and I especially love me some salmon sashimi. I stick with the rule of thumb of no more than twice a week to minimize mercury exposure, but I don't often find myself at risk of having fish more often than that anyway.
I've heard that fish isn't usually delivered over the weekend, so if you buy it on Monday, you're probably eating Friday's leftovers. But I live in Nebraska, so how fresh is it really going to be anyway? I make my fish purchases based on appearance and smell, not day of the week. Maybe on the coast the day of the week matters more.
I eat fish at least once a week. I love fish, especially sushi! I really do not plan in advance what night I am going to eat it, I just eat it when I get a craving.
Besides going out for sushi, I buy it at the grocery store to stock my freezer. This way, whenever I get home from work and am feeling a fish night, I either throw some on the grill or in the oven. I usually buy it on a Sunday night when I do the majority of my grocery shopping.
I also eat tuna fish sandwiches for lunch sometimes. I have been eating these since a kid and love them! I'll probably have a tuna sandwich also once a week,on no particular day.
I never eat fish before it's caught and only on days that end in "y".
we eat fish everyday... we lived in an area near the beach and its like a small town, no high rise buildings..so its like everyday people would sell freshly caught fishes on house to house.
We eat a lot of fish, shrimp, and crab. The best are those we catch ourselves. Nothing like seafood straight from the ocean or gulf!
Great photos habee!..
I'm eating seafood less because I'm pregnant but I love seafood. I also heard the tip about not buying fish on Mondays. I heard that in a news bulletin and have been taking the advice ever since.
Today is Monday - just went to the store, the frozen fish came home with me - the fresh fish was probably fine if I cooked it right away but I procrastinate at everything so the frozen I felt was best given the day of the week.
We had attended a great fish fry last Friday in Rockford. Oh, it was wonderful! The sides they offered I loves - spinach, asparagus and soup or salad.
I cringe when I am stuck with the sides they say I can have - that drives me crazy.
Scallops used to be my favorite but somehow Cod has marched to the tops of my list.
Happy Monday! Don't buy fresh fish and avoid perishables if you procrastinate like I do.
I live on a Caribbean island with my husband and fish here is plentiful! We have difficulty getting a hold of the specific type of meat we eat, so fish is on the menu on a very regular basis...
Fish is part of our balanced diet. Fish is also a brain food. Hmm, Dory just popped in my head. We couldn't be forgetful like Dory if we have fish included in our healthy food intake. As much as possible, fish is great to have at least once a week or any other seafood.
In my case, my partner doesn't like the smell of fish, much more eating it. He would rather go off to his friend's house if I plan to cook some fish. So the only time I could have fish is when he is not at home, *sigh*!
we buy fish weekly and eat it weekly...salmon, swordfish and tuna are most popular for us
