Back in 2009 The Goldster talked about snook found at Mariscos Chente on Centinela, and today he revisits the "fine-grained fish from the Gulf of California" which "isn't often seen around here." He was able to track down Sergio Peñuelas "the samurai chef who has mastered the elusive grilled snook dish known as pescado zarandeado" at Mariscos Chente's Inglewood location, however Gold notes that the restaurant has been renamed to Coni'Seafood. He advises, "...you certainly can't leave without an order of the pescado zarandeado, a vast, smoking creature split and flopped open into a sort of skeleton-punctuated mirror image of itself...smeared with a flavored paste and shaken over coals in a specially designed basket, [it] is notoriously difficult to pull off...Mr. Peñuelas knows his way around a snook."
