Catch of the Week
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
From the Proprietor
This week has been a great week for women's health. U.S. Senators Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Tom Coburn (R.-Okla.) urged the Food and Drug Administration to revise its dietary guidelines for pregnant and nursing women regarding the consumption of seafood. The senators cited that the FDA's guidelines were inconsistent with recent findings by the United States Department of Agriculture, which states that the benefits of consuming seafood regularly far outweigh the risks. The USDA cited that nutrition from seafood products can play a pivotal role in fetal development as well as during early growth stages, such as infancy and childhood. On the other end of life's spectrum...A new study has linked omega-3 fatty acids (found in many seafood products, such as salmon) to the reduced likelyhood of elderly women developing age-related macular degeneration (AMD) - an eye disease resulting in severe vision loss and even blindness. I hope all of you will treat yourself to a serving of lean, heart-healthy seafood at least twice a week. Not sure how to prepare a particular fish? Looking to try something new? Just ask one of our friendly fishmongers for assistance. To your health!

Recipe of the week
Grilled Marlin

4 (6 to 8-ounce) marlin steaks
Vegetable oil
1 large carrot, julienned
1 cup red cabbage, shredded
1 cup bok choy, thinly sliced
1 cup Chinese cabbage, shredded
1/2 Vidalia onion, thinly sliced
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/4 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons honey mustard
3 tablespoons poppyseed dressing
Salt and pepper
1/2 to 1/3 cup olive oil

Season marlin with salt and pepper, rub with olive oil. Grill until they just turn white and are firm. Heat oil in a wok until very hot. Saute carrots and red cabbage until just limp, add bok choy, chinese cabbage and onion, saute until warm but crisp, about 2 minutes. In a small bowl, whisk together vinaigrette ingredients, excluding the olive oil. Slowly add oil in a small stream until the dressing is emulsified. Place vegetables in the center of the plate. Place grilled marlin on top. Drizzle vinaigrette over marlin and around the edge of the plate. Garnish with fresh orange sections.
