Take a nice long ride up the coast
from San Francisco and your sure to find some of the best licensed
fisheries in the
world! The Hippy Gourmet meets his fisherman friend ‘Vinnie’
who as a licensed Abalone diver, is legally able to catch two
Abalone per day, so long as you cook and eat it pretty much right
there. So Bruce fires up his Coleman and makes a lightly breaded,
lemon and spice encrusted Abalone specialty! Thank you Pacific!
Taking his blackening spices on the road, Bruce takes a beautiful,
whole Ahi Tuna steak and sears it to utter perfection! Making
sure both sides are blackened just so and the inside is still
pink like a ‘Bonito’ piece of Sushi, The Hippy then
slices this Tuna into long, gorgeous strips. Served cold or
hot, you really can’t go wrong with a Seared Tuna!
craggy and ocean sprayed coast of northern California
is host to some of the most wonderful seafood in the world!
Bodega Bay is a beautiful area known best for its fresh Oysters.
Caught with a similar degree of licensing and fishery management
as the Abalone, Bodega Bay Oysters are great raw or cooked
on a BBQ grill. It is very important to support strict fishing
regulations, and thus The Hippy Gourmet highlights these issues.
