I’m hesitant to even write this because it’s just throwing salt in Nerdguy’s wounds. He is at home watching all of the children while I frolic in California, and I have betrayed him in a way that may just be unforgivable. He can forgive a lot of things, but this is probably too much.
What did I do that’s so awful?
I ate fresh, real-deal, amazing seafood without him. With an incredible ocean view.
He’s still upset about the lobsters I’ve eaten in Boston without him. I think he’s only going to let me travel to the middle parts of the continent from now on. And I don’t think I’m going to get away with serving fish sticks at home any longer.
My BlogHer roommates and I joined Melissa Vroon from Family Fun Canada at Fog Harbor Fish House on Pier 39 in San Francisco. It was so hard to choose what to eat – there were so many that I just knew would blow my mind with the freshness and flavour combinations. In the end I decided to have the Dungeness Crab Cakes with a cajun remoulade to start, because those are my very favourite. I waffled on whether to get an appie because I wanted to save room for my entree, but luckily I listened to the crab cake part of my brain. It’s surprisingly bossy. They were the best crab cakes I have ever had, and may be a good reason to move here.
For the main course I decided on the King Salmon. It is caught locally 6 days a week, and the restaurant’s seafood is 100% sustainable. It was delicious, and a very generous portion, served on a bed of roasted corn, arugula, red peppers, fingerling potatoes and tarragon, with a citrus butter. Just typing this has me wanting to take a shuttle back for another round. So good.
And check out the incredible view from our table – I could see Alcatraz from my seat!!! And when I looked out the other way, I could see my friends the sea lions (sea lions are friends, not food).
