Blue Water Seafood Market & Grill – San Diego

You watch it, you know you do, and you know you love it.  Guy Fieri and Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.

I always watch it, but I can’t say that I’ve ever eaten at one of the places he has featured.  Until now that is.

We found this place, not sure how, but it sounded good, and it just so happened to be on Triple D.

So we headed to check it out.

The line was insane, it was really long, but was it worth the wait?

There were cases of fresh fish, and despite the fact that it was almost 7:30 at night, there was quite a line and still quite a selection.

We started with a little Tuna Ceviche.  So fresh and the taste hit the spot.  With some crackers, the Ceviche delivered the right notes.


One of the specials they had that evening was some Hawaiian Opah.  You can get your fish in a number of ways after you make your fish selection.

You choose the marinade you want, you can choose from Ginger Butter, Lemon Butter, Garlic Butter, Teriyaki, Blackened, Chipotle, Bourbon Butter or Blackened with Brown Sugar.

The you choose the form you want, as a Taco, a Salad, a Sandwich or a Plate.  The plate comes with Salad and Rice.

Here I went with the Bourbon Butter Marinade and as a Salad.  I wanted to save my carbs.


The Opah was tender and flavorful.  The marinade made it just nice and delicate.  I can see where it goes on a salad, but I think the fish is best by itself.

Unless you choose a fish which is great in a taco!

Which is my second choice here, which was a Mexican Sea Bass.  I find it nice and flaky, thus it works real well in a taco.  So I couldn’t resist, because I needed to have another taco.

It was just as it was envisioned in my mind.  Flaky, the fish marinated in the Chipotle seasoning, the taco toppings were great and the sauce was awesome too.  A winner of a Fish Taco.IMG_5470The others in my group had a combination of items, from the Fish Sandwich to the Scallops.

Definitely worth the wait!  I can’t wait to get back to San Diego to try different fishes and combinations.
