Mmmmonday: Pier 46

For this Mmmmmonday, Sam and I discovered a real catch!!

IMG_6779Located in Templeton, CA, Pier 46 was a true find.  Tucked out of the way in a Trader Joe’s shopping center, we were literally shocked when we walked in a found a lush seafood market and a gorgeous menu.

IMG_6783IMG_6782IMG_6781Hmmmm, I wonder if you can guess what we ordered.  Well, sweet potato fries with truffle salt were a MUST and Sam couldn’t resist pairing them with some crispy fish.  It came to the table perfect…hot, light and crispy (not greasy).  And the sweet potato fries….ummmmm it’s a good thing that Sam is a sharer or I would have had  to create an excuse to get her away from the table!  They were the perfect sweet and salty, crisp and thin.

IMG_6791IMG_6792I’m still salivating! (Whoops, those are Zester hands!  I had just been using black paint for a burlap sign…teehee)  Oh, and the side salads!  My favorite seaweed salad and a truly divine seafood salad that was loaded with octopus.  Gosh, I couldn’t believe that I wasn’t on an actual pier…who woulda thunk you could get this delicious of a seafood selection inland.  Yum!  We were two VERY happy Zesters.

IMG_6788Hope you guys get a chance to try this little gem out, too.  We will be making it a usual haunt for us, I know, and we would love to see you there!
