The holidays are here and we are four days away from Christmas and one week away from the New Year! This year, I’m celebrating the holidays with a variety of delicious comfort food with my family. One of the dishes will be FISH, especially sustainable seafood that are labeled with @MSCbluefish. MSC Blue Fish is a nonprofit dedicated to ending overfishing worldwide. So when shopping look for that #MSCbluefish label. When purchasing a MSC Blue Fish label know that you are purchasing a product that is wild-caught, certified sustainable, and a portion of the proceeds goes towards funding sustainability research and supporting fisheries through their Ocean Stewardship Fund! 

Today we will be using a label MSC blue fish - Sable Black Cod Fillet from Whole Foods! We will be creating an umami flavor base to marinade the fish in and cook it off in a nonstick and serving with rice. It is so simple to do, under 30 minutes and your whole family will enjoy it! So let’s get cooking - Honey Glazed Black Cod!
