Safe Harbor Seafood Market

While sailing yesterday the conversation turned to the Safe Harbor Seafood Market in Mayport Village. I had heard of it but had never been. It’s a bit of a hike from where we live but since we were more than halfway there we decided to check it out and end a perfect day on the water with a seafood dinner.
 If you don’t know me personally you should know that I do not love seafood. And in fact until about 5 years ago I ate NO seafood at all. No shrimp. No crab. No scallops. No lobster. No fish of any kind.I now eat a few types of fish and that is all. Mainly mahi mahi, grouper, snapper, redfish and wahoo. No tuna. No salmon. Nothing fishy. And still no shellfish. And it needs to be well prepared, preferably with some sort of coating or sauce.
This place was HOPPING! There’s also a restaurant inside, along with the market, and the line for the restaurant was quite long. Luckily, we were there for the market. They had quite a variety of fish (FOUR kinds of snapper) and the prices were good ($6.95/lb). We bought two large filets (3 lbs!) and a pound of shrimp (for the kids-not me!)
We grilled both. The shrimp were blackened and the fish had a caper sauce that was really yummy {recipe link here}For sides we had a shaved fennel salad and roasted Brussels sprouts. I’ll share that fennel salad with you tomorrow. It’s super easy!

If I’m in the area, I’ll make a detour to stock up on fresh fish for a good price, but it’s quite a hike to get up here!
