Capt’n Dave’s Seafood Market

September 3, 2014

Hi Everyone!!!

I hope everyone had a great holiday this past weekend. We definitely had a busy weekend at the store thanks to all of you that came by. We had a lot of fresh seafood going out the door and we made up quite a few Seafood Kabobs for many customers to enjoy. The Kabob program has been fun and it has a lot of customers coming back for more. If it makes it easy for you, that’s what we are all about.

With the summer winding down and no special events happening anytime soon, we look to encourage our customers to think about being healthy and trying to work in a special seafood dinner for the family at least once a week. I know we have many customers coming in more than once a week but we also understand that the activities that families are involved in keeps families from having a good sit down dinner as often as they want. With all the special after school activities and getting home late, it’s difficult to have a healthy meal all the time.

So, with this being our slowest time of the year, all I can ask is if we see you as often as we can, I’ll be happy with that!

For many of our new customers, we are open every day of the week. We only close on Christmas day, New Year’s Day, Easter Sunday and Thanksgiving Day.

Further down the newsletter you will find a pretty good list of the most popular fish we will be keeping in stock for this week.

If you don’t see your fish on the list, it doesn’t mean we don’t have it.

Give us a call and we’ll make sure we secure it for you if it’s available.

We are preparing Seafood Kabobs on a day basis and this new program has worked out great for a lot of our customers.

If you’ll let us know what you need, we can prepare them for you in advance.( below is more info on the Kabobs)

Our Tupelo Honey did real good this week. For those of you that don’t know about this wonderful honey, read more on the internet and you’ll find that this is the purest of all honey’s.

Special new item for our store: TUPELO HONEY

100% PURE, RAW, UNHEATED AND UNFILTERD.

NEVER CRYSTALIZES AND IS ALSO RECOMMENDED FOR PEOPLE WITH DIABETES. THE BEST TASTING HONEY THAT I HAVE EVER HAD.

TUPELO HONEY IS AS CLOSE AS YOU CAN GET TO REACHING INTO A BEEHIVE AND SCOOPING IT OUT YOURSELF. THAT IS A SAYING THAT OUR HONEY FARMERS HAVE TOLD ME.

This honey is from the Tupelo trees in Wewahitchka Fla.

I visited the Honey Farmers while in Florida and picked up cases of Tupelo Honey for every one to enjoy. I even have honey jars with the honeycomb in it.

This Honey is very special and is only harvested two weeks out of the year. The bees get their nectar from the Tupelo Trees flowers and are 100% Pure Tupelo Honey.

The Tupelo Trees grow along the Apalachicola River and the Chipola River basins in the panhandle of Florida.

I know you will enjoy it so come on by and check it out.

I also love to mix my honey with soy sauce and pineapple juice for a great marinade on fish. I have plenty for everyone to enjoy.

Also for those who might have some interest in older films, the movie “Ulee’s Gold” 1997 with Peter Fonda and many other actors was made based on the area where they farmed the honey.

It’s a good story and it’s about the Tupelo Honey. Also, Van Morrison sings the song “Tupelo Honey”.

Pretty interesting.

**Spoke with my Copper River Sockeye Supplier today and they are still catching the salmon from the Copper River in Alaska.

This is the first year I have ever experienced the Wild Sockeye season lasting this long. We are still bringing in fresh Copper River Sockeye and Fresh Alaskan King Salmon and I am expecting a big shipment in the morning.

All fillets are vacuumed sealed and all fillets are deboned with skin on.

It’s amazing how long the season is lasting on the Copper River this year. It sure has helped in making this wonderful salmon available for all of us to enjoy this season.

I’ll keep everyone updated as I am from my suppliers.

I just wanted to make sure that everyone get’s an opportunity to enjoy this wonderful quality fish at the prices we have to offer.

Prices on Alaskan King and the Copper River Sockeye will probably remain the same for the rest of the season except that the price on Sockeye went down on the shipment we are receiving in the morning.

Prices have come down a dollar per pound on the Copper River Sockeye today and this offer will be passed on to everyone starting on Thursday this week.

SEAFOOD KABOBS:

The promotion on the Kabobs went real good again this past weekend. We hoped everyone enjoyed them.

We will make them on a weekend basis as long as everyone enjoys them.

Please remember, we can eliminate the extra work in making the Kabobs for you. We’ll prepare them while you wait or you can call your order in. We’ll make any combo you want as long as it is a item that will not fall apart on the skewer.

Give it a try if you want something delicious and simple.

** This week, we will be making fresh Seafood Kabobs for you to take home and place on the grill and to really enjoy. The seafood on the Kabobs will be a variety of the best that we have.

Please check with us and if you want something specially made, just let us know.

All Kabobs are priced out by the pound for whatever seafood we make them with. (No vegetables)

As an example, here’s what some of the Kabobs will have on them:

Sea Bass, Wahoo, Amberjack and grouper.

Or Grouper, Swordfish, Monster Shrimp and Scallops.

Also, Shrimp, Halibut, Mahi, Sea bass, Swordfish.

You can get any combo you want as long as it fits on the wood skewer.

One of my favorites is using: Cobia, Seabass, Shrimp, grouper and tuna.

I love it and I do the light teriyaki seasoning on it.

The Kabobs have been real popular and you can look to see what we have or we’ll make them in the store while you are waiting or you can call your order in and it’ll be waiting for you.

Basically, any combo of good grilling seafood you want and it’s priced the same as buying it from the seafood case and doing it yourself.

So for pricing, it’s based on what you select and how much you want us to put on the Kabobs for you. It’s all priced by weight.

Also, we will be marinating some of the ones we make for the display. Usually, it’s a light teriyaki marinade with a little kick to it.

Call us if you want us to make them for you.

We’ll be waiting for your call.

Great idea for the weekend! Simple as can be.

Stay Healthy by eating Seafood at least twice a week.

If you are not sure of what we carry, please drop by and check us out or give us a call.

And now you can view more on our web site.

We are open 7 days a week for YOUR CONVENIENCE!!!

Thanks!
