The kitchen has been busy this week testing dishes and laying the ground work for next week’s Oceanic Dinners. Chef Canales took some time to show us what he’s doing with a top loin from a large swordfish just in from Monterey Fish Company.

The fine print: The Monterey Bay Aquarium Sea Food Watch has deemed the local swordfish populations to be much healthier in recent years and put it back on the Best Choice list. The swordfish we serve is local and always caught using a hook-and-line method in conjunction with an O-hook, drastically reducing by-catch.

It should also be noted, that due to elevated mercury levels in swordfish a consumption advisory has been issued for women and those with mercury sensitivity.
