Fast forward to my adult years. I never learned how to cook fish myself, and I certainly never would have ordered it in a restaurant, but Waterfront Seafood Market changed my mind! Jeffrey likes fish quite a bit, so we started going there when we wanted a nicer meal. I usually picked something safe, like the excellent Coconut Shrimp. But Jeffrey patiently got me to try other sorts of seafood, and I find that I actually do like fish, at least as long as it's very, very fresh, and is cooked by someone who knows how to do fish right. I'm still working on enjoying it at home, although I have my doubts that I'll ever learn to love Mom's cream salmon and peas dinner (sorry, Mom!).
So far, the fish I like includes walleye, halibut, flounder, and trout. Salmon- not so much, but it's a process.
My very favorite thing on the menu is Waterfront's Clam Chowder- it's creamy and the clams are always so tender.

On a recent visit, Jeffrey had Baked King Salmon, one of the daily specials.
