Farm-to-table dining has been a trend for years, and many restaurants serve “catch of the day” from local fishermen. How about our “rod-to-plate” restaurants The Mita Mary Food Boat where our chefs cook seafood caught by our guests. Here on Mexico’s Pacific Coast, you can fish almost year-round for sailfish (who average 75-100 pounds) and yellow fin tuna (up to 300 pounds), plus marlin, mahi-mahi and red snapper in season. Setting of from the beach Punta Mita is a popular sportfishing destination. The Chefs of the Mita Mary can prepare your catch Mexican Pacific-style: a la Talla – slathered with a chile/garlic/mayo puree, grilled over hot coals, served with limes (or marinated in lime juice) — or Sarandeado – covered in a chile/tomato paste/soy/garlic puree and grilled. Other choices: sautéed with various salsas, with garlic or spicy chipotles, or grilled or Veracruz-style (braised with green olives, pickled jalapenos, tomatoes and capers). The next day, a cooking class with Chef Sergio Chavez will reveal his secrets. Our award winning on site experts Punta Mita Expeditions can almost guarantee a catch!!! I had a wonderful experience with my good friend Chef Juan Manuel Guizzo & my Father in Law KING where we caught over 20 Mahi Mahi in the space of 2 hours – we had to stop!!! Tight Lines all!
