Newfoundland is the place of fishermen, fishing and fish. When we moved here, I had romantic visions of R.J. and I enjoying heart-healthy gourmet fish dinners, while overlooking the sea.
Shortly after arrival, I purchased some salmon filets. Imagine my shock, when I read, on the vacuum pack, that the fish had been caught in the North Pacific, and filleted in China ! Most seafood caught here ends up in foreign markets, and much fish arriving here comes from abroad. Seems very strange, but , hey, this is Newfoundland !
Most locals prefer to eat pizza, fried chicken, turkey and hamburgers. The local supermarket has also recently started carrying vegieburgers.
