Seafood is easy – let’s TACO bout it.

Here’s a sustainable seafood dish with major kid-appeal that we want you to try.

Earlier this year our Seafood Team partnered with La Tablée des chefs to bring you delicious, ocean friendly Fish Tacos, approved by their network of over 35,000 youth across Canada! This Quebec-based charity delivers culinary programs to youth, fighting food insecurity and building food autonomy at home. We are thrilled to team up with La Tablée des chefs and their collaborator chef, Olivier Louissaint, to show you how to make sustainable seafood tacos in the comfort of your home.

Our Race for the Future partner, Canada SailGP Team, kicked off this video when they asked for an engaging way to teach sailing clubs across Canada about sustainable seafood. Thanks to their support we were able to make this collaboration happen.

So grab your ingredients and let’s get cooking for conservation! Follow along with the video below and recipe below.
