Fish...please Help

Me and my husband love salmon..cod...talapia etc. All we have close by is A&P grocery store and Shop Rite. Obviously we don't want breaded fish or anything like that. So we always end up having to go to the seafood counter and somehow relying on these people to change their gloves. No more after today. The guy wasn't going to change his gloves originally even though the original guy told me they DO change their gloves. Then it occured to me that they change their gloves between ORDERS but who's to say that at some point they didn't pick up one of the breaded things in their display case for someone then reach in with the plain fillets and drop something onto them while getting one of those for the same order?

We don't want to get fish from the counter anymore. What companies actually sell those large packages of fillets ..just plain fish with no cross contamination and nothing on them? no sauces or anything? Great American Seafood Company seems to be the ONLY thing like that that A&P grocery has and that company I've e-mailed twice with no response. Any suggestions on fish? If we have to a little bit further away we have a price chopper but would like to stick to shop rite and A&P. I'm really annoyed at this point. My husband is beginning to crack. We're sick of trying to live like this...ALL WE WANT IS SOME PLAIN NON CONTAMINATED FISH!....help? *sighs*

P.S. forgot we also have a Weis grocery store as well near the shop rite.

Do you have a Costco near by? They have TONS of fish. It's all frozen and it has a one ingredient label. We really like the Alaskan Salmon and the Pacific Cod (both of these are wild caught fish from the USA) They are all individually wrapped and frozen. I can't say enough good things about this fish.

It depends on where you live. Here in the middle of the country it's almost impossible to get good fish. Everything in the grocery store is frozen and from China. I won't eat fish from China. Once in a while I go to "the big city" and can find wild caught Pacific fish (cod), and even though it is SUPER expensive, I buy myself some maybe once a year as a treat.

If you live near an ocean there are probably seafood shops you could call or visit. If you explain to them they can probably help you.

I am actually considering getting in touch with some seafood place on the east coast and asking them to ship me some fish in dry ice. Omaha Steak Company ships meat all over the country that way and when it shows up it is still frozen so I know it can be done.

What if you just washed it off first?

I just looked up Shop Rite. They are in the Northeast. You should be able to find a bunch of good seafood shops in your area. You'll get better fish there than in the grocery store.

Fish is very good for you and you are smart to try and eat it as much as you can. The nice thing about frozen fish is that it keeps well because it is ... frozen. So maybe the thing to do is to take your cooler and make an excursion to a better grocery store and see if you can find some good frozen, non-breaded fish. Then buy a bunch of it. Costco, as mentioned previously, has very good fish for good prices. Trader Joes, often has both good and inexpensive fish. (Sometimes even in the same package!) You probably don't have a Major Market in your area, but they have good frozen fish even though it is more expensive. The real point is that there are a lot of sources of good frozen fish if you are prepared to look around and maybe drive a ways to get it.

I have a guy who will take it fresh from the box they send from the ship before anyone has touched it. I went to the store and asked to talk to someone and explained the whole thing to him. Now he will tell me when things are coming in and tell me to phone first to be sure that they did, and he will put it aside for me. Maybe if you do some explaining you will be able to get service like that too. Before that I did get sick despite washing first.

Edited to add that I am in the super sensitive category. I don't think that typical celiacs/gluten intolerants have problems with fish from the fish counter.

Bart....Legal Seafoods Restaurant, which is here in Boston, has mail order fish. It is expensive but no more than what others are charging now. Their fish is very good quality...high end and they test their seafood to meet certain standards. I send my father seafood via mail from them and they rave about it. I eat in the restaurant occasionally as they have one of the best gluten-free menus around. But the restaurant is pricey so it's special occasion food. There may be other places that will be less expensive but I am not familair with them as I just buy fish here easily. However, it's the "in" food to eat now and isn't cheap, even on the coast! Drives me crazy because I love seafood.

    • You're welcome ritamichelle. Yes, if you are biopsy confirmed then it will be much easier to get your daughter tested. 
    • I agree that In people that have celiac there usually is a trigger. It can be physical or emotional stress as the article states. I wonder though if the people they say 'don't have the genes' are folks that simply have rarer ones. There is research on more genes. I discovered it when I was writing a paper for a class. It was a very long time ago in 'computer age' and my bookmarks died along with the computer I was useing. But it is out there on peer reviewed sites like Lancet, NIH etc. Since celiac was rarely tested for even a couple decades ago there are many folks that may have celiac in their family but it was never known. That was the case in my family. I am confident about that.  I always wondered why my Mom seldom left the house, spent a lot of time in the bathroom, was tired all the time and was always holding her hands the way she did.  Then I became her.  We have so much to learn about celiac. Personally I dislike the term 'NCGS' because it makes folks think at times they don't need to be as strict and it isn't as serious. Too many are told that their biopsies are negative and they then get the NCGS label if they had positive bloods.  I consider celiac to be a spectrum disorder. Not all celiacs have gut impact or at least haven't developed it yet. I had the neuro impact and DH from shortly after I was impaled as a young child. It was many years before any severe GI issues arose.  
    •     http://www.takepart.com/article/2014/08/11/coffee-adulterated https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/how-was-your-morning-coffee-did-it-taste-like-mud-v6rfdmrrr92 http://grist.org/food/coffee-taste-like-dirt-thats-because-it-might-be/ " Using liquid chromatography, which identifies the individual chemical components of a mixture, the Brazilian scientists found wheat, soy bean, brown sugar, barley, corn, and rice commonly interspersed with the grounded coffee they tested. Large amounts of wood and dirt were also prevalent, an issue not only for purists who prefer to drink their coffee black, but for those with potential allergies to the unknown additives. As TIME reports, the scientists are identifying the rogue coffee with increasing accuracy:" http://www.bodyandsoul.com.au/health/health-news/is-there-wheat-hidden-in-your-coffee/news-story/a3d53a7c36b76156f08d89eab6a396b3   -----   I have also read other references to coffee upsetting those with celiac.   Personally I have a family history of officially diagnosed celiac even though I have never been diagnosed myself..then again Ive never been properly tested. My drs just keep saying the following symptoms are anxiety and wont refer me to a gastroenterologist for:   Loss of bowel control, pale coloured stools, severe bloating, passing undigested food, ataxia, vertigo, migraine headaches, feeling feverish, repeated ulcers on my tongue and in my mouth, feeling generally ill and sleep issues (mostly falling asleep when I dont want to but rarely insomnia).   Because they insist its anxiety as routine blood tests are normal they wont refer me to a gut dr. They did do a blood test for celiac once on my request but it came back negative. This does not phase me when it comes to my suspicians that gluten is an issue for me because:   1 I was on a gluten free diet at the time, hence why i was well enough to crawl to the gps office. 2 I have a family history of celiac 3 MY symptoms are alleviated by a gluten free, dairy free, oat free, corn free diet..and lately, coffee free it seems. Coffee has indeed become a problem for me recently. 4 I could not tolerate gluten based baby foods as an infant. I was admitted to hospital as a baby for being underweight because I was vomitting all my food up. They put me on gluten free formula and i was fine, stopped being sick and gained weight. I could have grown out of it but considering the symtpoms i get on a gluten based diet, i really doubt it.   -----   When it comes to the coffee, food manufacturers will do most anything to make profits if they think they can get away with it. We live in a world where money is most important and if they do get caught...they can always claim they have no idea how the barley got in there!    
    • If you have had a sleep study and been diagnosed, you have sleep apnea. It's definitely different than waking up to go to the bathroom. Are you using your cpap every night for The entire night. Naps too? SA can actually cause death so it's very Important for you to use it every time you sleep. Do you follow up with your doctor yearly? Sorry to sound like the SA police, but I know someone who died from it. He wasn't using his cpap anymore, thought it was uncomfortable.     What Is Sleep Apnea?   Sleep apnea (AP-ne-ah) is a common disorder in which you have one or more pauses in breathing or shallow breaths while you sleep. Breathing pauses can last from a few seconds to minutes. They may occur 30 times or more an hour. Typically, normal breathing then starts again, sometimes with a loud snort or choking sound. Sleep apnea usually is a chronic (ongoing) condition that disrupts your sleep. When your breathing pauses or becomes shallow, you’ll often move out of deep sleep and into light sleep.
