Guest Blogger, Priscilla Willis of She’s Cookin’ tells us about the mouthwatering summer seafood specials at all the Bluewater Grill’s southern California and Arizona locations.

Celebrate summer withBluewater Grill’s sustainably harvested New England Lobster and Bluewater-Grill-New-England-LobsterClambake. Beginning July 9th and continuing through the end of July, you can enjoy their famous feast of Maine lobster and Manila clams along with fresh corn on the cob, baby red potatoes, crispy coleslaw and drawn butter for dipping for $34.95!

Coming in August: Tuna takes top billing duringBluewater Grill’s August tasting eventsat all locations: Newport Beach, Redondo Beach, Tustin and newly opened (mid-June) Bluewater Avalon on the waterfront in Avalon (Catalina Island) in California.Enjoy the freshest, sustainable tuna – from seared Ahi and Albacore to Calico Poke and Bluewater-GrillSpicy Tuna Rolls.Bluewater Grill’s “Tuna Takeover” Tasting Eventon Tuesday, August 13th,will feature a feast of tuna prepared five ways:Seared Ahi; Seared and Smoked Albacore; Calico Poke, including both Ahi and Albacore; and Spicy Tuna Roll sushi. The $24.95 price includes a choice of tastings of Hakutsuru Draft Sake and Sapporo Draft Beer, both imported from Japan, or Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand.

Consistent with Bluewater Grill’s strict commitment to seafood sustainability, all varieties of tuna served during the tasting comply with sustainability standards established by the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach or other third-party organizations involved in fish-origin certification. I experienced Bluewater Grill’s firm commitment and gained a wealth of information about seafood sustainability and advances in farming during the first Seafood Summit sponsored by Bluewater Grill. I followed up with two posts about theSeafood Summitand Oysters 101in an effort to raise awareness of this important issue andshare some of the wealth of information I gained from the experts from Santa Monica Seafood Company and the Aquarium of the Pacific who presented a mind-boggling amount of information on the complexities of sustainability, responsible farming, monitoring practices, and rating systems.

Offered on the second Tuesday of every month, Bluewater Grill’s monthly tasting events allow seafood aficionados to combine the latest seasonal fresh fish varieties with commentary by the restaurant’s resident seafood experts. Hand-selected wines and specialty draught beers are added to the mix, and a special, limited-time menu offering allows customers to sample the tasting event throughout the month. The result has become a popular monthly diversion for Bluewater Grill’s large fan base.
