Oregon Coast Seafood Markets

If you like fish that is dramatically fresh, served at nautical food bars with do-it-yourself service and dispose-your-own cardboard plates, there is no road trip more rewarding than a drive along Oregon's Route 101. Here you will find dual-purpose establishments that sell fresh seafood and offer extremely casual meals, frequently at a picnic-table setting. The smoked salmon you find here is superb, but also take note of tuna, which is as different from ordinary canned supermarket tuna as Dover sole is from a fish stick. Hook and line caught, the tuna is filleted and packed raw into the cans and then cooked, a process that supersaturates the meat with its own natural oils, intensifying its ocean flavor and exponentially increasing its luxury. (Ordinary tuna is cooked first, then canned with added oil or water.)
