OK, so that’s not the happiest fish since it’s sitting on my kitchen counter, but the people of the household are very happy.
This was our second trip to Pedregal, a town on the water about 20 minutes south of us. We went with friends before, but this time we were on our own finding the place. We couldn’t find it at first, so we stopped at another house on the main street that had a sign out front “Vende Pescado”. They had pargo and robalo both for $2.50 a pound. We bought two pargos and one robalo, and another pargo for my neighbor who came along for the ride – 10 pounds of fish altogether. Oh, I also bought a pound of shrimp for $4.
(I have written more about what kinds of fish these are and what we thought about them HERE.)
Before we headed home, we decided to try one more time to find the first fish seller we visited before, and discovered we just hadn’t gone far enough down main street. Once we found the correct turn off the rest was easy. This seller has a larger selection, and there was also a bunch of very fun and friendly people around which I enjoyed.
I could not resist getting more fish. They had sierra which we had before and really liked, so I bought a couple good size ones, and then 2 pounds of lisa, just to try and see if we like it. So, another 10 pounds of fish went in the cooler. I figure altogether we bought 20 pounds of fish and a pound of shrimp and spent $40. And, this fish is obviously very fresh, caught just today!
This is the price list of the various fish for sale at the second fish seller, in dollars per pound. They may not have everything on hand at all times, and last time they had durado which wasn’t listed. But they have had a very good selection both times we visited and we were happy.
I have written more about the various kinds of fish and what we think of the ones we have tried so far, so rather than make this post a mile long I put this in another post HERE.
