Louisiana Crab Season kicks off!

Posted by Lindsay Adler on Aug 01 2018


At Deanie's Seafood restaurants, the four seasons have always been Shrimp, Crab, Oyster and Crawfish. Although crawfish season is over, summer has been great for shrimp and crab. In the past several weeks Deanie's has been getting some beautiful fresh Louisiana blue crab, and we couldn’t be more excited about the start of Gulf crab season!

Revered for their delicate, sweet flavor and cooking versatility, Louisiana blue crabs have become a standard of fine dining and backyard boils alike. If you haven’t tried soft shell crab —Louisiana blue crab that have outgrown and shed their hard shell—you’re missing out!

Get Hooked on Fresh Domestic Seafood!

Cook with Gulf Shrimp and Louisiana Seafood

Enjoying seafood is definitely an important part of American culinary culture, from shrimp to crab to fish and everything in between. And rightly so. Not only is seafood plentiful and good for you, it’s absolutely delicious! At home seafood consumption is up, which means that more people are cooking seafood in their own kitchens. Neilsen reports that meal kits might have played a part in consumers’ increased seafood consumption and that 29% of users of meal kit services such as Blue Apron and Hello Fresh say they eat more seafood with these delivery options. The amount of imported seafood being purchased by consumers in recent years has increased as well, however. When you pick up that shrimp at your local grocery store, whether fresh or frozen, are you really paying attention to where it comes from?

Louisiana Crawfish Aquaculture is largest by far in US

Rice paddys and crawfish farms go together like rice and étouffée

Agriculture is the practice of breeding, rearing, and harvesting fish, shellfish, plants, algae and other organisms in all types of water environments. On the East Coast, paddy fields and mangrove fields are converted into shrimp farms, while the West Coast, which protects mangrove fields, is more likely to convert idle plantations or paddy fields into shrimp producing fields.

The rice industry traveled south from the Carolinas to Louisiana with Acadian settlers. In Louisiana, rice paddys (an irrigated crop) are often converted to crawfish farms. (Photo by New York Times)
