Buying Seafood is committed to providing information for consumers looking for the best seafood. We provide species information, suggestions, recipes, product reviews and much more.

After spending my early life in the Gloucester fishing industry, I wanted to combine all this experience with my love of writing to share what I know about seafood. The days of getting free fish from the family boat are gone so now I share my seafood experiences to make readers better informed about what they are buying.

The #friedcalamari from the #causewayrestaurant was so big I wonder: Did they fry up a #squid or a baby #kraken 🤣🦑

Steamers And Stuffies: Local Clams Are The Best Clams!

Soft shell steamers one night, and delicious stuffed clams another is not a bad way to start what will be a very different summer. It was not long after that night of delicious steamers that I found some locally made stuffed clams while shopping at a local farm stand. The nice ladies at the stand swore these Real Deal Stuffed Clams were the best stuffies they ever had. It’s hard to go wrong when it comes to stuffed clams, even bad stuffed clams are pretty good.

Bravo @tonnogloucester for this magnificent #tuna and white bean dinner. I can't wait to try you guys again, this took me back to my travels in #italy when I couldn't afford such luxuries🤣 - I have to save the last #arancino to go with my #rigatoni and #sugo for tomorrow. Thank you!

Gloucester Day Boat Scallops On The Grill

With the pandemic still affecting everyday life, I’ve been finding a bit of nostalgic comfort heading down Fisherman’s Wharf Gloucester to pick up fresh seafood. Several Gloucester seafood processors and wharves are now offering fish, scallops and lobsters for retail and it’s been a huge morale boost. It’s not exactly the old days of free fish, but the prices are untouchable, there is plenty for everyone and the quality…let’s just say we are still completely spoiled. The sea scallops I got from Fisherman’s Wharf Gloucester were harvested in federal waters within the Gulf of Maine.

Thanks to the amazing #organic fertilizer from @neptunesharvest I am starting to understand why old Italian guys spend so much time in the garden! Can't wait for those first tomatoes to go with all the basil, lettuce and chard. 🍅 #organicgardening #fishtofertilizer #oceancrest #neptunesharvest #dontworryitsgurry

Lobster: Satisfying A Craving Can Help Local Business!

Big pieces of lobster, but not enough of them, with no mayo at all, served on a roll that I couldn’t tell if it was lightly toasted or just stale. Compared to some of the monstrosities I see online, Charlie’s Place lobster roll is more like how I’d make it at home. It wasn’t listed on the menu board, but when it comes to fish markets, especially places like Fisherman’s Wharf Gloucester that deal in wholesale…all you gotta do is ask. Pro tip: don’t waste time trying to suck out the meat in those legs, instead, get your empty beer bottle and use it like a rolling pin, the meat will come out as easy as a tube of toothpaste.

Took advantage of @eclecticclam #no-contact delivery service for #capeann this past weekend. Their #stuffedclams are delicous and satisfying enough to be more than just an #appetizer - Check out my review - LINK IN BIO - and then go to their website and see when they will deliver to your area! #seafooddelivery #hardshellclams #cherrystones #stuffies #seafood #localseafood #clams

Grey Sole Fresh Off The Boat Thanks To Fisherman’s Wharf Gloucester

Recently Fisherman’s Wharf Gloucester had some of the most prized flatfish in New England waters: Grey sole, also known as witch flounder. This grey sole was brought in by the F/V Midnight Sun, skippered by Captain Tom Testaverde, so you know it’s fresh and in pristine condition. Grey sole catches are currently under tight management, which is why it is not a cheap fish at a restaurant or the fish market. We ate a lot of it since grey sole is my mom’s favorite fish and like most Gloucester people I know, we kept it simple.

The fish for tonight's #bakedhaddock came from @fishermanswharfgloucester who are offering up amazing deals on #fresh #wildcaught haddock and #scallops right off the boat. They are now partnering with @minglewoodharborside next door to make the service even better by offering various side dishes and safe pick up. - Can't wait for next time...#anyfresheranditwouldstillbeswimming #supportourfishermen #gloucesterseafood #gloucesterfisherman

When it comes to #seafood blogs, I must have the fewest lobster roll pics on the web. Tonight I had a craving and Charlies Place, a locals favorite answerd the call. 🦞 #lobster #lobsterroll #buyingseafood #gloucesterseafood #supportlocalrestaurants
