The Complete Spanish to English Fish Translation Guide

spanish to english fish translation The Complete Spanish to English Fish Translation GuideAfter watching the Forks Over Knives documentary this summer – and buying their cookbook – I quickly realized that I could not commit to a full vegan lifestyle change. However, I decided to drastically reduce the amount of meat in my diet, especially red meat.

While we were in the US we had a ton of options to replace meat including some very good vegan products and also a lot of seafood choices. Now, back in Buenos Aires (the land of red meat), most of those options do not exist. Luckily, after some searching, we have been finding quite a few good seafood markets. The Disco Supermarket on Cuba in Belgrano has a great seafood section, and is probably the nicest supermarket I’ve been too in Buenos Aires so far.

Knowing what fish is what is a big step in finding the best choices. So, without further ado, I present to you the Spanish to English fish translation guide for Argentina. Please leave a comment and let me know of any that I may have missed.
