Santa Monica Seafood owner Michael Cigliano discuses fresh and tasty seasonal seafood. His family has operated Santa Monica Seafood since 1939 and have stores in Costa Mesa and Santa Monica. Their 10th Street Cafe will be the location for their retail space, which is scheduled to open fall 2008.
Michael recommends the following fish:
Red fish - can take a lot of spice and is good broiled; it's a dense flesh and needs strong flavors.
Hiromasa - a fish from Australia
Japanese Kingfish - similar to Japanese yellowtail
Swordfish - Michael's current favorite right; broiled with herb butter.
