Mackerel: Local, sustainable and good for us

Food for ThoughtHeather Atwood

In staying true to New England waters, Steve Johnson of Rendezvous Restaurant in Central Square, Cambridge, courageously puts fish on his menu that — oh no! — has bones.

Mackerel. Grilled to a charry crispness, dripping with olive oil, delicate filets lifting off of 8 inches of spiny vertebrae, mackerel.

In Italy, Spain, Portugal, Sweden, Denmark, just about anywhere but here, a serving of fish means a pile of bones on the plate. Residents of these countries make beloved meals with sardines, anchovies, pike, mackerel and herring.

Vintage Gloucester Ad- Sea Tang! Davis Bros Atlantic Ocean Mackerel

Thank you to Monkeyfist who sent a link to this vintage Gloucester ad along.

But now down to business.  SEA TANG? Seriously, they went with SEA TANG?

 I don’t know about you but that sounds dirty to me.

I wonder what the ad execs were thinking about when they thought that one up.  It must have come from the Mad Men at Sterling Cooper. :)

Let’s just hope your sea tang doesn’t taste like mackerel. -Just sayin’
