Quest for sand dabs
Hi - I'm looking to purchase fresh (not frozen) sand dabs (not rex sole or dover sole)...any one have any locations?
Like perhaps a cash and carry venue downtown or a good reasonably priced fish market?
I saw some today with the Vendor at the Mar Vista Farmer's Market. Can not confirm their lineage but it might be a place to start. or Check with Seafood Paradise in Rosemead where they have a lot of live and whole seafood available.

re: Jack Flash
Yes, I've gotten some from them too. It's kid of a hassle, as they do these long, drawn-out negotiations with every customer over a few fish, while the rest of us wait in an interminably long line. When the woman is dealing with me, I'm always aware of the long line behind me and trying to get her to crank it up a bit, always to no avail. And I'm what they call a Type B personality. I guess she must be a Type D...
I just bought sand dabs this afternoon at Gordon's Fish Emporium on Pico. Now I'm looking for a good recipe.
I have also bought them at the little fish store on Fairfax - 2 blocks north of Beverly Blvd.
