LaGuarida: First Artisans’ Fair – Feria Artesanal

La Guarida’s best translation  to English is a ‘Cave’ but I think this place reminds me of a Greenwich Village Cafe. This is Cuenca’s best kept secret. You have to visit this place to see the wonderful attention to detail and to chat with Andres, the creator of La Guarida.

14 Vendors will be there from 10:00 – 2:00 pm  this Saturday September 16th displaying their wares and having tastings.

Of course I will have my salmon and other fine fish products.

  • 14 portions of salmon for the price of 12
  • $22 a kg on large fillets
  • $6.50 Rainbow Trout Fillet
  • $8 a lb of cleaned and deveined Shrimp
  • $13 for 5 med.-large Tilapia Fillets

 

Santa Canela Fest

Because of my association with Productos Terranova I have access to a wide variety of fish, shrimp and scallops. My diet consists of red meat twice a month, chicken four times a month and the remainder I eat the following

  • Salmon  6- 8 times a month
  • Red Rainbow Trout 2-3 times a month
  • Paiche 2-3 times a month
  • Tilapia 1-2 times a month
  • Shrimp 1-2 times a month
  • Scallops 1-2 times a month

I don’t feel tired, my cholesterol is down and the Omega 3’s are good for my heart

Come to the Santa Canela Fest Saturday Aug. 12th from 10 -3:00 pm and find Salmon, Trout, Scallops and Paiche on Sale. Say that you read this post and receive and extra dollar off the already low price of a big salmon fillet.

See you Saturday.

Salmon, Scallops And Paiche

Eating salmon increases your cardiovascular health. Salmon contains high levels of the omega-3 fats, EPA and DHA.  When eaten two to three times per week, salmon can protect you from problems such as heart attack, stroke, arrhythmia, high blood pressure and high triglycerides.

Scallops are the new power food. Scallops are more than 80 percent protein. One 3-ounce serving provides 20 grams of protein and just 95 calories. They’re also a good source of both magnesium and potassium.

Paiche a 6 oz. serving of Paiche contains the following nutrients

Calories 178 Sodium 1 mg
Total Fat 2 g Potassium 0 mg
Saturated 0 g Total Carbs 0 g
Polyunsaturated 0 g Dietary Fiber 0 g
Monounsaturated 0 g Sugars 0 g
Trans 0 g Protein 40 g
Cholesterol 0 mg

The usual suspects will also be available for purchase- Fresh Rainbow Trout, Organic Tilapia, Smoked Salmon, Smoked Trout and Organic Shrimp
