Fresh fish in Saugerties or Kingston
I know I'm a bit late checking in.. but I had a wonderful seafood experience on Christmas Eve that I want to share. I found a simple recipe for baked shrimp, scallops, and halibut that I wanted to make and my neighbor was doing a paella. I went with her to the SEA DELI on Broadway in Kingston. I was afraid at first, very very afraid, until I walked in an saw this nice Italian fishmonger who apparently drives into NYC a few times a week to pick up quality seafood. The large scallops that I had were devinely sweet. He didn't have halibut but directed me toward the fresh cod and I substituted that in. It was a great experience overall and he's priced a few dollars less than Adam's. I had heard about the Sea Deli for a few years but was always turned off by its location and exterior appearance. Apparently he does an all you can eat? Tuesday? fish fry? lunch? that is a big hit with the hospital employees. I highly recommend the sea deli for price, quality, and foodie experience. Let me know how it goes if you make it down there. It's on the north east corner of Broadway and maybe Elmendorf? about a mile down from that crazy uptown, downtown intersection.
