Louisiana was named by a French explorer in the late seventeenth century. Having been quickly transferred from French to Spanish control before the antebellum period, this mysterious region resulted in a blend of cultures that gave way to inspired cuisines, rich traditions, and intermingled languages. Although much of Creole and Cajun cuisine is inspired by the fertile swamplands as well as the abundance of wildlife and vegetation, its strategic location at the peak of the Gulf of Mexico allows natives and tourists to enjoy fresh seafood throughout all seasons. Our selection of Louisiana seafood offers you plenty of opportunities to surprise and delight your guests. Explore the wonders of the sea found in our inventory today!
Our extensive selection of Louisiana seafood is full of salty treats, main courses, as well as bite-sized morsels fit for any gourmet appetizer or anytime snack. Crabbing boats and fisherman tow fresh crabs and shrimp onto shore daily. We offer a vast selection of succulent crabs to satisfy your coastal cravings. Our Louisiana blue crabs are caught daily direct from the brackish waters of southwest Louisiana, which results in the tastiest yellow fat for a variety of dishes. Our crabs are measured on the top shell from point to point, according to the age-old Maryland grading scale. We also carry minced, cooked crabmeat or claw meat, fingers, backfin, and soft-shell crab that are ideal for stuffing, casseroles, boudin, jambalaya, or creating sinfully delicious crab bisque. Simply reheat and add spices to your desired heat level.
Another favorite Louisiana seafood actually comes from the streams and shallow waters along the bayou. We proudly offer whole soft-shell crayfish and crawfish tails that are best prepared deep-fried or pan-fried to crispy perfection. Try something out of the ordinary for dinner with the help of our fresh and shucked Louisiana oysters, frog legs, or traditional turtle soup. We also carry shell-on lobster tails straight from Maine. Create a fancy candlelit dinner or a backyard barbecue to remember by steaming, broiling, baking, or grilling to your heart’s content.
