El Pescador Fish Market has been serving some of the best seafood in San Diego since 1974. Known for their friendly service and top of the line quality fish, it’s no wonder that the popular fish market is about to make the move to a larger building directly across the street from its current location. In the meantime, stop by their current location and pick up some fresh seafood for this featured seafood recipe.

Lay 1 tbsp of EVOO on a hot pan and add squid, curry, and cayenne. Saute the squid to medium rare on a high flame, for about 2 minutes. Add white wine and reduce by almost half (3-5 minutes depending on your flame output from your stove range). Add bay shrimp half way through. Once reduced, take off heat, add cold butter, and stir in until blended in with the sauce. Add salt and pepper for taste.
