Item of the Day – Louisiana Crawfish Tail Meat

By | Seafood
Crawfish is a crustacean that resembles a miniature lobster; this species is usually dark golden-brown with reddish tinges. Crawfish average 3-9 inches in length. The cooked meat is red.
Crawfish are either farmed in rice fields during alternating seasons or trapped in the wild. Unlike other farm-raised products crawfish are trapped with bait; therefore, harvest is dictated by the catch. Bait consists of pieces of fish in colder months and manufactured pellets with warmer temperatures. Crawfish are harvested in a specially designed crawfish boat. This process is very labor intensive and continues rain or shine.

Item of the Day – Select Oyster Gallons

Shucked oysters are designated according to size.

Shucked oysters will  have 10 -14 day refrigerated shelf life upon receipt.
Selects are the middle classification of shucked oysters and are the most popular of all the sizes. Select size oysters are the most versatile size oyster that are used in most recipes. They can be stewed, fried, baked or just eaten out of the container.
