Sanddabs are a classic San Francisco treat - little flatfish simply pan-fried and served with lemon and butter. They have may be small, but they are mighty tasty!!
Sanddabs are small, delicious, and delicate flat fish that live near the bottom of the ocean floor.
These flatfish are caught in special light nets with holes large enough to allow smaller fish to escape. Underwater cameras are attached to them that allows our captain to target very specific schools of fish. Camera's on board the boat set up by the Nature Conservancy closely monitor what is brought on the boat to ensure 100% accountability and sustainability. Very few boats have this sort of outfitting which allows for nearly zero by-catch!
Sand Dabs are a San Francisco specialty - these little delicate flatfish have been a favorite pan fried - a quick dip in an egg wash and then some bread crumbs and served with butter and lemon and fresh parsley. Tadich Grill has been serving them in the french style this way for over 160 years and they are still famous for them now!
These guys will come pan ready - meaning they will have their heads removed and will be gutted but some fins and the central bones will remain - they come out like magic when cooked - just grab the spine and pull the whole skeletal structure out!
