My family loves to buy fresh seafood from Taro’s fish market. Their salmon, shrimps, scallops and uni are very fresh. We love their Boston uni so we put it on sushi, don and pasta. It’s cheaper than eating out and it tastes really good!

  • butter
  • garlic
  • onion
  • black pepper


  • 5 pieces scallop
