Dinner last night was striped bass (two of them) from 99 Ranch Market, cleaned and prepared under their option #6, “crispy fry.” This is very helpful if you want a decent dinner and you have no time. All you have to do is pick out a whole fish and they’ll take care of the rest. Grab a number and then a plastic bag from the top of the counter. Use the bag like a glove to rifle through the fish, select one and then to pick it up to hand it to the fishmonger when your number comes up. You pay only the price per pound, nothing extra, and I have had all kinds of fish done this way. Sometimes they’ll have really great whole fish at $1.99 per pound. Just buy some steamed rice at their prepared food section on the way out and you are good to go. Throw together a sauce using a bit of chili oil, soy sauce and vinegar, if you want to add a little spice.
