Any suggestions for a good fish market in Central NJ, preferably the Piscataway/Bridgewater area? Looking for good scallops. I know of Nassau Street in Princeton, but I was hoping to stay a bit closer. How is Wegmans for scallops? !

    The Asian Food Market seafood is ok, not great. It's good for fresh, live fish, but I find their shellfish to be lacking. From what I've seen, HMart has some very nice seafood, and a nice variety.

      There is a great one in the new brunswick area. It is called ar-char seafood. I think it might be somerset. might even carry dry scallops.

      Wegman's would definitely have scallops......but consider expanding your horizons....and saving yourself some money in the process.

        It may be a little far, but the best seafood monger I know in the area is Metropolitan Seafood in Clinton. They are very knowledgeable and always have the freshest seafood. I have bought scallops at Wegman's and they were good. However, I don't feel they have the expertise that you will get at Metropolitan. If you already know that you want scallops and you already know how you will be preparing them, then Wegman's is probably a good choice for you.
