Adventures in Fooding - Big Fish

Another weekend, another food and drink blog post. As I sit here blogging about our eating adventures (again!), Anita is currently doing what appears to be endless sit-ups to work off our restaurant meal (technically, MEALS considering we haven't had one single homecooked one this weekend). It's amusing to watch her work out, but it also makes me feel like a total lard ass for not joining in. Whatever, I have photos to upload, and typing to do! Clearly, my threshold for justifications and rationalizing is extremely low.

We hit up Big Fish Seafood Restaurant and Oyster Bar tonight for... wait for it... seafood and oysters. The name sorta says it all. We shared a half dozen fresh oysters, which Anita informed me was the first time we'd consumed these libido boosters in 293 days. For real. She keeps a log of every raw oyster we eat, complete with which region/ bay/ coast they're sourced from, and the taste profiles of each... sort of like an extreme version of a wine snob. We also indulged in: 1) sturgeon skewers served with spaghetti squash fritters and mango lemon aioli, 2) lamb and lobster burger with cambazola cheese, avocado and salsa cruda, and 3) seared salmon on French lentils with wild mushrooms, sage, and dungeness crab. YUMMY! Unfortunately, the specific dish I really wanted to try (a softshell crab sandwich) was only available on the lunch menu. Who wants to meet us there for lunch sometime?

I'm holding an oyster shell, in case you couldn't tell what it was.
