Did you know that consumers spent an estimated $80.2 billion on fishery products in 2010? The United States alone imported around 5.5 billion pounds of seafood in 2010 (up from 294.8 million pounds in 2009). People, that’s a lot of fish! Scientists have estimated that we have removed as much as 90% of large predatory fish (shark, swordfish and cod, etc) from the worlds oceans.  Now more than ever it is vital that we prioritize sustainable fishing practices.

Last year Target was the first major retailer to eliminate all farmed salmon from its stores. That move made waves in the agriculture and retail industries. Kudos to Target for committing  to only offering sustainable seafood. Learn more about the initiative here.

In light of this commitment from Target, we are sharing the recipe for these Chili Lime Shrimp Pita Pockets. This tasty recipe was created by Top Chef Master Marcus Samuelsson and was shared on Target‘s blog,
