This is how we do a random dinner with friends in Baja! Everything fresh from the sea and drinking local craft beer from Agua Mala brewery!
Recently, after a day of running errands we got a call from friends in Popotla to come over for dinner. This is what we showed up to. That day they had gone to the local market in Popotla and prepared this meal. I don’t think we could be luckier.
Popotla is a small town just south of Rosarito. Daily, local fishermen bring their fresh catch straight to the beach to sell. They will clean and filet the fish for and if you want you can even walk into one of the local restaurants and they will cook a full meal for you with your fresh fish.
Fun fact, Anthony Bourdain visited Popotla on one of his TV shows in Baja. He ate fresh crab and lobster on the beach. Pretty sure he loved it!
