If you're a regular Wicked Flavory reader, you may have been wondering where the heck I've been for the past month.  Between travel for work and vacation, I was gone for nearly all of April. 

Travel can be tough on the old stomach.  I've had more crappy airport food and room service meals than I care to recall.  But travel can also provide an opportunity to explore local cuisine. 

I just got back from a week in the Bahamas, where every restaurant serves some variation of  locally caught conch, grouper, or snapper and every bar serves 73 variations of rum drinks, like the Bahama Mama.  Earlier in April , I had an amazing meal at Craft restaurant in Los Angeles, where there were plenty of local ingredients on the menu.  (Eating locally and seasonally is so damn easy in California.)  Before that, I had walleyed pike, Minnesota's state fish, paired with Brussels sprouts at the Minneapolis Westin.

seafood watch 1.jpgThe Monterey Bay Aquarium has developed regional guides to help seafood lovers around the US support sustainable fishing.

For us New Englanders, the Northeast Seafood Watch page lists BEST choices ("abundant, well managed and fished or farmed in environmentally friendly ways"), GOOD alternatives, and things to AVOID ("overfished and/or fished or farmed in ways that harm other marine life or the environment").

You can download a printable pocket guide (PDF). Better yet, save the paper and go to www.seafoodwatch.org on your mobile phone next time you're shopping or dining out. You'll be taken to a screen where you can immediately select the Northeast guide.

Thanks to Vidya for the mobile screen shot!  :)
