My local fishmonger

I recently moved to Kirkland from Seattle. For those of you not familiar with the area, it’s on a lake, not the Sound, and is unfortunately really far away from my favorite fish market in West Seattle. I consider myself fortunate to live in an area where I can have a favorite fish market at all. I grew up in the Midwest, where I loved going to the fish market once every other week or so with my mom, and there really was only one place to go in town. I loved checking out all of the interesting seafood there, and in fact was the first time I saw a whole salmon, or octopus, or live crab (I felt bad about cooking them until one pinched me – HARD). Here, every neighborhood has their own little spot in addition to Pike Place and down by the docks.

I’ve been here for a few months now, and the Safeway and Fred Meyer were fine, but weren’t really measuring up to Halibut cakes at Seattle Fish Company. Then last night, while exploring a new part of town in search of a Hallmark store, I stumbled across a real fish market in my area. Unfortunately, it was closed at the time I went by on a Sunday night, but I was happy to know it was there, ready to supply me with fresh delicious local and sustainable seafood next time I stop by at a more reasonable hour. Next time I’ll make sure to stop by when they’re open, and I’ll let you all know how it goes.
