Which foods other than fish should I avoid if I have a fish allergy?

ANSWER

  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Barbecue sauces with Worcestershire
  • Caesar salad and Caesar dressing
  • Caponata (Sicilian eggplant relish)
  • Caviar and fish roe (fish eggs)
  • Artificial fish like surimi, an imitation crabmeat sometimes used in sushi

Stay out of seafood restaurants, too. Even if you order the beef, bits of fish from a shared spatula, cooking oil, or grill can get in your food. That can happen in any place that uses a lot of fish or fish ingredients, including ethnic restaurants.
