Monday is Fish Day for the Rossi’s! Every Monday between 4-6p we meet Fisherman Nick in Cambridge to grab the latest catch from Cape Ann Fresh Catch Community Supported Fishery (CSF). The fish is literally fresh off the boat that morning and I love the pleasure of shaking hands with the guy who caught it. If we aren’t catching our own, this is certainly the next best thing!
What I also love about this is the surprise! We are two weeks in and so far have had hake and pollock- two fish that I have never cooked with before. Although, AJ and I are both adventurous and enthusiastic when it comes to trying new things, I often find that when I go to the market, I stick with what I know. Similar with our CSA at Siena Farms, I love that our CSF forces us out of our comfort zone. If you find yourself with a whole fish for the first time, don’t be daunted. Even I can fillet and skin a fish- it is delicious and rewarding!
