Capt’n Dave’s Seafood Market

October 7, 2014
Hi Everyone!!!

We had a very busy weekend this past weekend and I want to thank each and everyone for coming in to the store to visit.

There was a lot of really good football games on this past weekend with quite a few upsets and maybe that got everyone all excited and hungry.

We really do appreciate you all very much.

With this being the slow time of the year for our business, your presence sure changes things from the past years compared to the same time this year.

Being that it’s Fair Month and all the special activities that are going on at the same time, I appreciate seeing all of you when you come in to the store.

I am posting most of our products and prices on my web page which you can go directly to by clicking the site below and this helps in keeping the newsletter shorter.

Please visit our web site:

If you are looking for snacks or hors d’ oeuvre’s for the games this weekend, we always have freshly cooked 16/20 count Peeled and deveined cocktail shrimp. We also have Cajun Crab Dip which everyone thoroughly enjoys and we also have Seafood Gumbo, Crawfish Etoufee, and Shrimp Creole that many of our customers love. These come in 30 oz tubs or 4 lb trays. And if you really want a treat, you have to try out my special Hot Smoked Alaskan Sockeye.There is nothing like it in the Metroplex unless you do it yourself.
When I find new seafood items that I know my customers will enjoy, I will always keep you informed. The list of all or most of all our items that we stock has become very lengthy and it is much easier viewing all of it on the web page. I will add the new items to our seafood list as we are sure we will keep them in stock. So, please visit the web site when you need to see a full list of our products.

**New items added to our list:

Breaded Gulf Oysters: 8.99 lb (approx 18-25 per lb)(cornmeal and flour)

Southern Style Hand breaded Catfish fillets: 8.49 lb(4 oz fillets w/cornmeal)

Halibut cheeks: 20.00 a lb. (Limited quantities) Approx 1 lb packages.

With the Halibut season coming to an end around November 15th, today,I secured enough Halibut after the season closes so we have enough Halibut to keep us stocked for two to three months. Prices have gone sky high on Halibut this week and the current cost in Dallas from all the suppliers is more than what I sell to my customers. This is why I do the things I do to keep the cost down as much as I can because the suppliers do not look at it this way.

This is very important to know: There are only a couple of seafood markets in town and if you were to compare my cost with them, you’ll find that everyone is up there on prices for seafood. The few that are around, compete with Central Market and Whole Foods. They are the highest prices in town. Our suppliers truly concentrate on Restaurants and I don’t have to tell you about their selling price. Being that they can get what they want in prices from Restaurants, they don’t care about the rising prices on seafood. So, my job for my customers is to find the highest quality at the lowest price so I can keep cost down for everyone.

We are always looking for great recipes to share with our customers so if you can send us your special recipe, I’ll be happy to post it for all of our customers to enjoy.

Every week, we are making Seafood Kabobs for our customers. If you would like us to make any special for you, just give us a call or come on in and select the seafood you want to be skewered. We have a great selection for you to choose from. It only takes a few minutes and we can have them ready by the time you come to pick them up or we can make them for you while you wait. Remember, whatever the cost is in our seafood case that you select is what you pay. No prep charges just select what you want and we price it out on how much you want on the skewer.

I hope we can make some for you.

Thanks!

    • Marty, we have been having many problems getting live blue crab this year due to an oil spill in our Gulf off of Galveston Bay. We haven’t had any large orders and because of that, It’s very difficult getting a couple of dozen at a time for customers. I’ve seen some around town periodically but they have been very small and not very heavy. These have been coming out of Louisiana. I know that when the crawfish season kicks in around Super Bowl, our suppliers from Louisiana usually bring our live crab to us. But right now, it’s no fun trying to find a high quality.
      Check with us during the crawfish season which usually runs between Jan and July.
      Thanks!
      David
