GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - Grilling season has arrived along with the unofficial start to summer, and if you're tired of the same old meat and poultry, why not try fish?
Fitness expert Chris Freytag showed the KARE 11 Sunrise crew a few things about how to change up your grilling dishes, just in time for summer.
What is red rated mean?
What red-rated species will Whole Foods Market no longer carry when this change takes effect?
o By Earth Day 2012, Whole Foods Market will no longer carry the following because they come from red-rated fisheries:
• Trawl-caught Atlantic Cod
• Octopus (all)
• Grey Sole (Atlantic)
• Swordfish (from certain fisheries)
• Tuna (from certain fisheries)
• Skate Wing
• Atlantic Halibut
• Imported wild shrimp
• Rockfish (certain species: black, Californian scorpionfish, Longspine and shortspine thornyhead)
Additionally and for many years, WFM has not sold the following species because of sustainability issues: orange roughy, marlin (except Hawaii-caught marlin sold in Hawaii), and bluefin tuna.
What alternatives will you offer if my favorite fish is no longer carried?
Whole Foods Market will continue to offer the highest quality seafood. Certain species will no longer be available, but our fishmongers can recommend alternatives that offer similar qualities such as flakiness, color, flavor etc. In addition, our fishmongers can fillet, de-vein, season, and even steam fish to order.
