Top Ten New England Seafood Markets

Yankee Magazine Weighs in on Atlantic Seafood Market

“This market is the seafood gem of the lower Connecticut River valley. Owned by Lisa Feinman, everything here is as fresh as it can be. CIA-trained resident chef Jerry Doran and his staff cut all their fish fresh and make all their prepared seafood delights from scratch every day. Late spring is a good time to pay a visit, when the shad are running up the Connecticut River and fresh shad and shad roe are in plentiful supply.”

Salt, Slow Cookers, Dishwashers, and Microwaves


As the summer 2018 sun rises over New England, many await cooked lobster rolls, seaweed – steamed clambakes on the beach, and grilled bluefish. Though these foods certainly are classics, you can miss out if you don’t think outside of the box and try some other ways to cook seafood as well. We’ll explore methods that offer a plethora of advantages over more traditional seafood cooking. These include lightning speed8, no fishy smell1, and a whole lot less work3.


Rock Salt Shrimp

Rock salt, which must be used instead of table salt for cooking shrimp in order to preserve the shrimp’s flavor.

As the name implies, rock salt shrimp is cooked on a layer of very hot rock salt in a pan1. Using rock salt is a great method for those new to cooking seafood, since it makes it very hard to burn anything9. The salt used MUST be ROCK SALT since cooking the shrimp on regular salt would make the flavor far too salty.
