Guess the Fish

We had a special shipment of seasonal fish last week and they got snapped up within days. Hopefully, we'll soon be getting more of these delicious fish again.

In the meantime, take a look at the pictures of our shipment! Can you guess the types of fish? Answers are at the end of this post.

1. Saltwater. White flesh, dry and delicate. Lives along the bottom around rocks or other bottom features. Best grilled, baked or in fish chowder.

2. Saltwater. Firm, tasty white flesh. Notorious bait stealer. Best as boneless, skinless fillets.

The Wu Xing theory involves elements found in nature. Chinese cuisine relates to Wu Xing elements through the colors that each element represents. Certain colored foods are beneficial to designated organs in the body.

You can derive benefits from five colors - red, yellow, green, purple/black and white - with a daily consumption of fruits and veggies For this reason, they are important components of the Wu Xing (literally translates to Five Elements) diet. To achieve balance in the body, each color component must be represented in a meal.
