The Fish Market

Mazatlan, Mexico

Visiting Mazatlan, Mexico is always a delight.

This time we were coming from Culiacan, after a fun trip on the El Chepe train from Chihuahua to El Fuerte.

One of the best things we love about being on the beach is the seafood! Take a look at this short pictorial of the fish market in Mazatlan, Mexico.

Fishermen out in a boat in the Pacific Ocean, Mazatlan, Mexico

It's a fisherman's life

Here are a some men going out to sea in their small fishing boat.

They might have a net in their boat, or they may have set some traps which they will check.

Notice each boat has a log under it. Boats are rolled from the sea by placing the boat on a log and pushing them further up the beach past the tide line.

This also keeps the boat from digging into the sand making it harder to move back to the ocean.

A closer look at these giant bowls of shrimp

Shrimp is the largest fish commodity in Mexico when you consider their export value and the amount of people this industry employs.

Shrimping began in the 1930's with about 630 tons a year and have increased each year since.

While the price of exporting shrimp can be between $7-$9USD per pound, local pricing pretty much stays the same at 120Pesos a kilo, or about $3.12 per pound.

We really enjoy this price savings!

Fresh, sweet whole crabs on ice.

Billy and I still relish the memory of eating fresh crab with the sweetest limes ever in Mazatlan while watching the sunset.

Sometimes it's the simplest of memories that we treasure.

When lobster is cooked properly, the meat is tender, juicy and sweet. Some prefer to dip it in melted butter, while others prefer squeezing tiny limes over this delicacy.

Of course, there are many recipes with cream sauce or gratinee with cheese...

What is your favorite?

Fresh huachingango in Mazatlan fish market, Mexico

Fresh local huachingango (or as we would call it, red snapper)

Huachingango sounds like a big word, but when we first arrived in Mexico, a friend told us to just think, "watching Anne go" and we'll never forget how to pronounce that word again!

Now that it's in your mind, you'll never forget it either!

We are Retire Lifestyle Mentors. Our goal is to help you achieve your retirement dreams.

We in the States call this fish, red snapper. It's a medium-bodied white fish that will hold its shape when you cook it.

But it's not as firm as halibut, shark, or salmon steaks.

How fresh can it get, Guys?

This "fishery" has been here since 1984 and is located just across the malecon and the sea in the Olas Altas section of Mazatlan.

This is a common dish at the beach, fish in foil with vegetables.

Grilled onions, yellow peppers and tomatoes surround the fish, along with cucumbers, avocado and those lovely little limes.

Do you have a favorite Mexican beach?  We have several, but Mazatlan is always entertaining!
