Sea Scallops Stir Fry

This month’s recipes are inspired by the fantastic seafood and duck available on Long Island. Choose Local F.I.S.H. (Fresh. Indigenous. Sustainable. Healthy), an initiative of the Cornell Cooperative Extension Marine Program, provides a Local Seafood Locator tool to help you find fish markets that offer local seafood near you. Long Island duck is available for sale online or talk with your local butcher.
