Eat your Way through Crab and Shrimp Season this Summer

Guide to Seafood in Season from Gulf Shrimp to Crabs 

Summertime is officially here in the Crescent City, and that means people are talking about two things: Hot and humid weather, and what seafood is in season! Being in such close proximity to the Gulf waters means that we’re eating a lot of gulf shrimp, blue crabs, and softshell crabs.  Crab and shrimp season are in full swing, and eating local seafood in season means you’ll enjoy it at the peak of freshness.
