Summer Seafood

by Jane and Michael Stern


Tulsa's White River Fish Market is surrounded by warehouses and, from the outside, looks more like a hardware store than the great seafood restaurant it is. All kinds of raw fish are sold at the counter, where dine-in customers choose the exact one they want and have it broiled, grilled, or fried to order. Oklahoma's essential is catfish. Here it is available the traditional way—fried into crunch-crusted golden lengths of dripping-moist meat, or broiled to order under a hail of house spices. Like all other seafood on the menu, it comes with steaming-hot jalapeño-accented hush puppies on the side. The Fish Market is democracy in action: The brightly lit dining room is as loud as a mess hall, and the communal tables are filled by a mix of blue collars and oxford shirts, and blacks, whites, and Native Americans.
