Fresh Fish Market
I don’t cook fish often. I’m never happy about the quality of product I get at the grocery store. I saw a news feature about Catalina Offshore Products and stopped by on Saturday. It is a wholesaler with a retail counter. Everything looked very fresh. They have whole fish and filets of many species -tuna, sea bass, spiny lobster, opah and more. I got shrimp and a gold spot bass filets - firm and odorless, just how I like raw seafood. They also sell cooking supplies, like gourmet salts, seasonings, curry pastes, pestos and tartar sauces. I made “garides me feta” - Greek dish with shrimp cooked in a tomato sauce topped with feta cheese. I made a Thai-style sauce with curry paste and coconut milk for the fish, which I pan sautéed.
The shop is located off Morena Blvd. Well worth a visit!
