San Diego -- where to buy scallops?
I have a hankering for coquilles st.-jacques but have never made it myself. Any recs for buying scallops? The bf works downtown/Pt Loma and I'm in La Jolla so somewhere we could stop on our way home in south easterly directions would be great.
Whole Foods Hillcrest had some HUGE diver scallops last Saturday. I didn't by tany (was getting some mussels for the grill) but they caught my attention.
Point Loma Seafood is always a safe bet.
El Pescador in La Jolla is good.
Catalina Offshore Products is worth a visit.
There's also that fish market on India St. that for some reason I'm drawing a blank on...
BF could stop by Point Loma Seafood.
You can swing by El Pescador on Pearl street in La Jolla. Very reliable seafood source.
Thanks for the replies! BF ended up working too late for Point Loma Seafood, so he got the diver scallops geekyfoodie saw in WF in Hillcrest. He got about a pound for $27.50, so I was paranoid I'd screw them up, but it came out perfectly. (ps Tony Bourdain's Coquille St Jacques recipe rocks!)
I'll definately try El Pescador next time I want seafood and it's not rush hour. Thanks again!
