From the Sea to the Grill

Tags: Food Rush

Ryan tries his hand at fishing with the aid of some local fisherman. He delivers the fish to Stagnaro Brothers Fish Market and then uses a fresh Halibut to create a fish dish with grilled peach salsa.

To begin his day in Santa Cruz, Ryan meets up with a local fisherman to get a fresh catch of his own. He brings the fish to Alan, who works with Local Catch Monterey Bay. Local Catch is a distributor that distributes fish caught by the local fisherman to customers in the area. Ryan and Alan weigh the fish, then jump into the van to deliver it to Stagnaro Brothers.

Stagnaro Brothers is almost 80 years old. Their motto is "Caught Today, Cooked Today." This fish market is the largest outdoor market on the west coast. They were voted best seafood restaurant in Santa Cruz. Over twenty types of fresh seafood are served here daily. Once there, Chef Ryan teams up with the Executive Chef and they make grilled halibut with grilled peach salsa.
