Summer Seafood

by Jane and Michael Stern

In the summer months, as the mercury goes up-up-up, we all think about the joys of jumping into the water. But there are those of us who think about what's jumping around in the water, too—fish and clams and all sorts of succulent shellfish. Lucky for us, summer also happens to be when the lobster shacks of New England throw open their weathered doors, when Chesapeake crabbers mix up their secret spice blends, when salmon smokers are lighted all over the Pacific Northwest. Let's face it: Nothing says summer like a sweet fried clam with a spritz of lemon, or a fish taco doused with guacamole and salsa, or a pile of freshly shucked lobster meat on a soft split bun. Get out your crackers—and your flippers—for our tour of the summer's best seafood spots.
