One major perk of living in Gloucester, MA is the access to super-fresh-straight-from-the-ocean seafood. Literally everything is available: Lobster, scallops, tuna, swordfish, clams, haddock, sole....you name it! My go-to place for quickly grabbing something for dinner is Steve Connolly's Seafood which is located near the waterfront, very close to the commercial harbor and fishing docks. So clearly, you could not get any fresher fish and that's something you can taste! Two nights ago I scored an outstanding, picture-perfect piece of tuna (see proof below haha). When you start with a protein of that quality, preparing the meal is so simple! I just seasoned the tuna with sea salt and freshly ground pepper, and pan-seared it in a little bit of olive oil. Once browned on the outside I added some freshly squeezed lemon juice and let the tuna steak cook a little bit longer. Served with roasted red bliss potatos and a fresh cucumber salad, this dinner really was the highlight of the week!
Whether you cook seafood at home or go out to the excellent restaurants around Cape Ann, you won't be disappointed!
