Wild Salmon and Swordfish from Monterey Bay @ Frank’s Fish Market in Salinas

Melanie Wong | May 22, 201205:53 PM     19

My first taste of Monterey Bay king salmon this season was sourced from Frank’s Fish Market in Salinas. Richer red hued this year and impeccably fresh, the cut-to-order filet was $15 per pound. In San Francisco I’d have to pay $20 to $25 for the same.

I’ve also been enjoying the locally caught swordfish. Not often found in these parts, Frank says the currents have been running deep for the past two months. Few anchovies, sand dabs, sardines or squid, the usual catch, but swordfish are running instead. Filets cut from the prime loin section are $14 per pound. We’re having swordfish for dinner tonight!
