Wondering if there are any restaurants in the area - or further up north (New Hampshire/Maine coast) - that fry their seafood in rice flour and rice oil. My wife and I love fried seafood (particular favorites are the fried clams, shrimp and scallops at Park Lunch in Newburyport, though Legal's will do in a pinch), but it gets very heavy very fast. Last year on vacation, we happened on Corbett's Fish House in Portland, OR, which fries their shrimp and fish in rice flour and rice oil. This makes it gluten-free, but also makes it much lighter and less greasy. I know that Woodman's in Essex has a gluten-free menu, but the thread on Chowhound discussing it made it sound like they used corn flour, so I'm not sure it would have the same effect.
