An Iconic Recipe: New Orleans Barbeque Shrimp

Posted by Karen Hales on May 16 2019

Featuring Head-on Shrimp in a Savory Blend of Butter, Lemon, Garlic and Herbs

New Orleans always does things a little differently. Even the “barbeque” in the city’s famed New Orleans Barbeque Shrimp bears only a slight resemblance to traditional barbeque found in any other part of the country.

New Orleans Barbeque Shrimp is a local favorite—Juicy, bright and spicy head-on Gulf shrimp smothered in a deep, savory delicious blend of butter, lemon, garlic and herbs & spices. Served with a crusty baguette, a bib and plenty of napkins, our BBQ Shrimp has more than enough fresh flavor to satisfy any seafood lover.

Posted by Karen Hales on Apr 26 2019

New Orleans Restaurant's Seafood Platter features Bounty of local seafood

Deanie’s Seafood values the traditions that started in Bucktown more than 50 years ago and carries them through all of Deanie's Seafood restaurants to this day. And nothing says classic Deanie’s quite like our Giant Fried Seafood Platter. According to Gayot, “Seafood is found all over New Orleans, but one place is synonymous with classic Southern fried seafood, and that's Deanie’s.”

The Giant Fried Seafood Platter has been around since soon after Frank and Barbara Chifici purchased the original restaurant and seafood market in 1982. Back then, it was called the Captain’s Platter.  We'll let you in on the secret to perfectly fried seafood.

Making a Traditional Louisiana Crawfish Bisque

Posted by Karen Hales on Apr 17 2019

A bisque is a rich, creamy soup of French origin based on a strained broth of crustaceans such as lobster, shrimp, crab and crawfish. Crawfish bisque is a unique and traditional Louisiana dish. Unlike a French bisque, which is cream based, a Louisiana crawfish bisque is a roux-based soup (flour and butter mixture) incorporating crawfish meat, sauteed green pepper, onions, celery and garlic, and crawfish heads stuffed with crawfish dressing.

Despite its long Louisiana history, only about a dozen restaurants in New Orleans still serve crawfish bisque, according to Tom Fitzmorris, food critic and longtime host of The Food Show on WWL Radio. Today, Deanie’s Seafood’s three locations offer crawfish bisque using Deanie’s Proprietor Mrs. Barbara Chifici’s personal recipe based off the traditional River Parishes version of this soup. The restaurants also serve seafood & okra gumbo, crawfish étouffée, and a variety of seafood-focused soups du jour. We’ll walk you through how to make a New Orleans crawfish bisque.
