WE COULD EAT BLUE CRABS ALL DAY

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!

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?

Enjoy Gulf Flounder Peak Season 

In Louisiana, we can enjoy local seafood pretty much any time during the year. Among the many types of fish in the Gulf of Mexico, such as grouper, redfish, snapper and tuna, grouper is a lean, moist fish with mild flavor, firm texture and large flakes. Gulf flounder are flatfish that are compressed laterally, and they spend much of their time lying on the bottom. Their two eyes look upward when swimming near the bottom, on their side. Peak season for Gulf Flounder is between July and November, the ideal time to enjoy them is right now, and they are one of the best gulf fish to eat.
