San Jose fishmonger?

Hi all,

Any suggestions on fresh fish buying in the San Jose area? I'm cooking for 50 at my sister's wedding party and need to grill some fish and shrimp. Fresh and quality are important, price secondary.

I'd love some jumbo prawns, especially, if anybody has had them around.

Old posts on this topic are from 2001-2 ( ). Any more up to date info?

Thanks in advance for your help. Much appreciated.

      Whiile at Race Street you gotta try a Fried Oysters/Fish and Chips combo. So good! I swap out deep fried mushrooms for the french fries too.
