Easy Halibut Fish Tacos

Vancouver Dietitians recently partnered with a local, sustainable food company - MeatMe. If you include animal products in your diet, it is important to think about the sustainability of your choices, and the impact they have on the environment and local economy. At MeatMe, they work with small, local family farmers who are committed to the highest animal welfare standards. None of the animals are given hormones or antibiotics, and you can be sure you are always getting ethically raised, locally sourced products.

We did some recipe testing with their fish products, which are sourced from the Haida Wild fishery in Haida Gwaii. We are so lucky to have access to such amazing fish, and it is important to source these products in a sustainable way so that we can continue to enjoy them!
