There are a lot of different fish I've wanted to try, but most of the fish I eat are local or seasonal species.

What I want to know is: What is it? Does it taste good? Is it as bad as some would have you believe? To … Continue reading Legend Bay Swai Review
Fellow blogger munchkinontheroad says this is her favorite fish. I’ve had other types of snapper, but yellow snapper is said to the best. This recipe looks like a nice way to try it, but I bet it would go well with striped bass too!
