Breaded Oysters & Chicken Salad….a Philadelphia Tradition.

This week on the Market Update we are featuring head on Mahi and Soft Shells from North Carolina as well as Wild Alaska King Salmon. Also, on sale this month: breaded oysters and homemade chicken salad. What an odd pairing, you might say. But, this pairing is actually an 18th century old Philadelphia tradition. Back in colonial times, when oysters were cheap and plentiful and chicken was expensive, taverns saw the pairing as an opportunity to stretch the cost of the plate. That way customers got to enjoy the delicacy of chicken without hurting their wallet. You can still find this dish on some Philadelphia restaurant menus, including The Oyster House. A little bit of “fishtory” to share with your friends.
