Ocean Star Seafood
Posted: 6/14/2011Provided by Citysearch -
I called Ocean Star Seafood in my search for Marlin or Swordfish to grill for Father's Day. The person on the phone responded that yes they had Marlin an it was $2.49 a pound (this should have been my first clue as Marlin usually sells for $12-$15 a pound locally). Needless to say I was very excited and immediately went to check it out. I could not find the Marlin in a fairly small store, so I asked for assistance. When I asked to be shown where the Marlin was the sales lady (who spoke very poor English) directed me to Mullet, which is quite different. I said, no not Mullet, I am looking for Marlin. She insisted the Mullet was what I was looking for. I said no it wasn't, I called earlier and was told they had Marlin. When I said this she, for reasons that completely escape me, directed me to a small frezer with fish eggs and insisted this was what I wanted. I left and went to Roth's who had frozen Swordfish for $7.99 a pound.
