L'Auberge Del Mar: Local Grouper Special

Learn more about one of our fish specials inspired by spring vegetables!


Have you ever seen something that instantly sparked your imagination? Whether that be in the design realm, fashion realm, or culinary realm? Well, thanks to Chef Fabian, L’Auberge Del Mar presents you with an elegant, creative and exquisite fish special that was cultivated by a simple glance at a flower, known as the mustard blossom. 

What is a mustard blossom you ask? Well, mustard blossoms are cultivated in Europe, Asia and North Africa, but are commonly distributed world-wide (hence, how we got some delivered to our kitchen)! Both the flower, and the leaves, give off a peppery, almost horseradish like flavor that will off-set rich, sweet flavors, and cut fatty proteins. 

When Chef Fabian saw these gorgeous yellow flowers, he knew he had to create something magical, and what better way than to create a visual masterpiece centered on the mustard blossom! He went with a local caught grouper as the star of the dish, along with a medley of locally sourced spring vegetables. To elevate the dish he added an Italian Salsa Verde, which added both freshness and a pop of color to the entire plate.

Here at L’Auberge Del Mar, we hope that every guest experience, is luxurious, elevated, genuine and memorable. Our gorgeous location and creative employees, will ignite the senses and elevate your experience as a whole. Thanks to Chef Fabian, your culinary dining experience at your home by the sea, truly will be, NEXT LEVEL! Enjoy the photos of this gorgeous dish below, and stop by to try this special while it’s here!
