Rock Snapper

Two good foods harvested within sight of each other, Central coast rock snapper and artichokes. This snapper is found in the clear and cold waters along the rocky California coast and has mild flaky meat which is a good balance from the crisp skin when pan seared. The artichokes grow well in fields cooled by the nearby ocean breeze and together on a plate are perfect. I like to cook very simply with just a few ingredients so the natural flavors and colors can stay intact. Just good olive oil, fresh herbs and kosher salt.
