shrimp.jpgBad timing: In Mark Bittman's New York Times magazine recipe feature "Shrimp Is Having Its 15 Minutes," he writes that "[s]hrimp is now the most popular seafood in America" (and seems to be cool with the "farmed and frozen" variety?). But because of the government shutdown, according to Quartz "more than 90% of the foreign seafood Americans eat is coming through unchecked" by the FDA.
