I really appreciate that Whole Foods sells sustainable seafood, but are seafood stocks so depleted that we should just put a moratorium on seafood? Thanks!

We work to support the fisheries that are well-managed with healthy fish populations so that fishermen have an incentive to fish sustainably. Not all fish populations are depleted. Those that are need especially strong management, which sometimes can include cutting back on fishing effort or changing fishing methods to give populations a chance to recover.

You guys have some wonderful healthy recipes and this one is no exception. Very tasty & easy to make. My wife & I pared this with a nice inexpensive New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc from your wine section. We have to wonder why don't you suggest wine pairings with the recipes? This is a question we are often asked by dinner guest as we always pair a wine with our meals.

Looks tasty, will try it this evening. Draw backs - 20% advertising 5 min show, cooking starts at 1 min in, and ends 20 sec before the end of the video. Stick to the cooking, I'm already a customer.
