For Those Who Love Fresh Seafood, Restaurant that Has Evolved North of City May Meet Your Needs

It's another week for WDTV's "Tasty Tuesday" report and for those living in Bridgeport or visiting, here's a profile on one that is roughly 35 miles from Bridgeport. A visit to this restaurant is a short trip up Interstate 79 North.
When Flying Fish & Co. opened in 2002 on Mid-Atlantic Drive, it was mainly just a seafood market & deli.
"[The original owner] had a little deep fryer in there where he could make fish and chips, sandwiches, and little things like that, but primarily it was just a source for people to go [purchase] fresh seafood," said the current owner Aaron Bennett.
The food grew so popular that the market evolved into primarily a restaurant. However, the focus remains the same: bringing fresh seafood to the Morgantown area.
Today, I learned how to make scallops: a delicate seafood that cooks to perfection in under five minutes.
Bennett recommends lightly seasoning the scallops with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Then, cooking them in a hot pain with butter and oil. Let each side get golden brown (it takes about four minutes, tops), then plate with white rice.
To top it off, (carefully!) deglaze the pan using white wine. Then, pour that sauce over the top of the scallops. Finally, the simple, fresh dish is ready to serve.
Other dishes include soups, sandwiches and fried or steamed shellfish.
