For many Pakistanis, fish is a winter delicacy. We all love to cozy up in the chilly weather and prepare our favorite seafood dishes to cure our winter blues.
This season is a perfect time to buy and eat as many fish and seafood varieties. But living in a nation where you are always dubious about what you are eating, it was very important to find the right, healthy fish to cook.
According to latest reports, Punjab Food Authority has released a warning against sellers and consumers of Pangasius frozen fish.
The samples of the particular frozen fish were sent to an international laboratory and as per the report, a massive amount of mold, listeria and moisture content was discovered in the samples.
