Fish Markets Nassau County

I have been a long time customer of Syosset Seafood on Robbins Lane. Lately, it seems to be slipping. I hate to say it, but I'm looking for a new fish store in Nassau or Western Suffolk. Any recommendations?

    Try Jewel of the Sea in Woodbury (in little shopping center on Jericho near Prime Time butcher). Farther afield Roslyn Seafood Gourmet on Willis Ave or father still Marine Fisheries on Middle Neck Road in Great Neck.

        I can't get past the stench of that place.

        Take a look at New Wave Seafood in Wantagh. They have a reasonably priced restaurant alongside their retail store.
        Here's their website: http://www.newwaveseafoodli.com/

          Try South Shore Fish Market (Arties)--4257 Austin Blvd
          Island Park, NY 11558. Great market, plus a small BYOB restaurant.

            I buy wild Pacific salmon and halibut at Costco (Westbury) - great quality, never frozen and at a better price than I can find at any fish market, and I like that they have a "packed on" date printed on the price sticker. In the last month they had Copper River King and Sockeye. I have occasionally found whole, fresh Red Snappers when they have the pop-up fresh fish stand, but I have not seen any lately. For sole, I usually go to Whole Foods.

              Do you buy any local fish? It's a shame to live on Long Island and be buying west coast.

                I bought local blackfish and bay scallops the last time I was in your neighborhood, Coll, and they were delicious. But no, no Atlantic salmon or halibut because we prefer the wild Pacific fish. Looking forward to what I find next week on my stops on the North Fork.

                  Glad to hear it! I know what you're saying about the salmon though. I'm picking up some tuna and bluefish to grill next week myself. Maybe I'll run into you and not even know it......

                      Wish I had a boat to do it myself too!

                  The suggestion of "Artie's" by jackflag fills that bill. Artie goes out himself and buys from fellow fisherman. He always has local fish.

                    Not if it's King salmon, it ain't! Seasonal and to die for.

                      I've only just started liking salmon the last few years (not counting smoked, of course). I didn't think I liked oily fish, but turns out I do as long as it is near well done. Believe it or not, I cook it on my George Foreman until I see some browning, and all of a sudden I changed my mind. I always loved bluefish, but I've only had that smoked or grilled, so there you go! So far I just buy frozen salmon on occasion, but maybe I should expand my repertoire. It doesn't turn me off anymore.
