THE fish market

One of my very favorite features about living here has got to be the fresh fish market. I don't even know the name of it....everyone just calls it THE fish market and I can see why. It is located near Tony Caputos and the Italian market. At the very end of the building, if you didn't know it was there you would miss it........anyway, geography aside, c'mon where else can you get fresh fish in UTAH?? They fly it in every day! The staff(Cody....the only guy that I ever see in there) has a truely craftsman approach to his work(fish). If you ask him to educate you about which fish would work best on the sushi you are attempting he will spend as long as it takes until you get what you want.....if you ask him the best way to cook the fish you have just purchased, he will walk you through it-step by step until he is sure you understand. And finally my new favorite: today he told me how much I should buy a gift certificate for in order to assure my dad will be able to buy a great seafood meal for two. ($20 btw....he could have lied and made more, but he is honest!--love it!) The fish market is definitly a unmistakeable asset to our little neighborhood! I will go there often!
