Snapper and Halibut Season is Now Open!

Halibut and Snapper Season

March marked the opening season for Halibut and Snapper, which means we have plenty for you to try at El Segundo Fish Co.! We offer Cajun Blackened Snapper and Made to Order Halibut Fish n’ chips that are sure to meet anyone’s craving for a delicious fish dish.

The Snapper is the signature fish of the Gulf of Mexico, and is very popular with recreational fisherman. Snappers can grow up to 40 inches, weigh up to 50 pounds, and can have a lifespan of more than 50 years. Snapper is one of the most prized fish in restaurants and fish markets, which also makes it a favorite fish for any chef. In fact, Snapper is so delicious and sought after that there are more than 1 million snapper recipes online!

Halibut is also a very popular fish, and comes with many health benefits. Halibut is full of heart healthy omega-3s, which can help prevent irregular heartbeats and decrease the amount of plaque buildup in arteries. Halibut is also a great source of magnesium, which helps to prevent arterial damage and works to increase the nutrient distribution and blood flow in the body.

You Will Not Want To Miss The Cod Catch Of The Day!

Catch of the Day: Cod

Cod is on the menu! The Catch of the Day that is featured all through March is Fresh Pacific True Cod, and can be prepared blackened, grilled, or cornmeal crusted to ensure that you are able to enjoy this delicious fish anyway that you want.

Cod is one of the most important fish that has ever swam in the Pacific. The Pacific cod that we all know and love today is actually the same species that is found on the East coast of the country. From all the way back to the 16th century, people from different countries started heading to America to fish for cod for salting. Since it was extremely abundant along the Atlantic all the way up through Nova Scotia and the Grand Banks of Newfoundland, cod was one of the most popular fish around the world. In fact, the cod fish industry was so strong, that it was one of the main forces behind the colonization of America.

Cod is the original fish that is used for traditional fish and chips, since true cod has a clean and mild flavor that has a perfect flake. The large white piece of meat that comes from a cod allows it to be prepared in many different ways. Cod is healthiest when it is broiled or baked, but can also be enjoyed fried, sautéed, or in a chowder.

To enjoy a delicious cod dish this month, contact El Segundo Fish Co.! Make your reservation today to ensure that you can enjoy the delicious and unique taste our cod offers.

The Cioppino Bowl

The Origin Of This Delicious Meal In A Bowl

In our sort of chilly Southern California winters, sometimes you just need to eat something warm and nourishing. Fortunately, you have some options for getting the nutrition your body needs without sacrificing flavor. One such option is the cioppino bowl.

This flavorful fish stew is not just delicious, it is also historic. Its roots go back to Genoa, where fishermen would gather the leftovers from the day’s catch and chop them into a stew. The cioppino bowl itself was born out of that background from Italian immigrants in the San Francisco area.

There is some dispute about the origin of the name. Some say it comes from ciuppin, a Ligurian word in the Genoese dialect that means “chopped” or “to chop.” Others say it comes from the phrase il ciuppin, meaning little soup. Whatever the origin of the word, food historians say the soup was popularized in the Bay Area in the early 1900s.

The recipe has continued to be passed down through generations, and today we mix seafood sourced from the Pacific Ocean (e.g. clams, shrimp, scallops, squid, mussels, Dungeness crab) with fresh tomatoes and a wine-based sauce to yield this delicious soup. It is usually served with a good toasted bread for dipping. Unlike many soups, a bowl of cioppino is likely to keep you full all day so it is a great way to enjoy seafood and nourish your body.

Skip the blasé restaurants and head to El Segundo for this and other exciting dishes! We are serving up cioppino bowls for just $11.95. For more information about our menu, contact El Segundo Fish Co. Join us to enjoy fresh seafood in a fun atmosphere!
