Hi Everyone!!

Get ready to bundle up this week. It looks like the cold weather is here for a while.

While the temperatures are dropping, I do my best to try and locate and bring in fresh fish that is popular for inside cooking along with the seafood that we bring in for the outside grill.

So, when it’s cooler, keep up with the new items that we’re bringing in. Flounder is one that I will always try to keep in stock as long as the price doesn’t get out of hand and we can keep the prices low as possible for everyone to enjoy. Flounder can go along ways when it’s purchased and cooked. It doesn’t take much to make a great meal. Some fillets run a little larger but I can show you how to make it work with the same recipe.

One real popular way to cook Flounder is to take a couple small fillets and soften a 3 oz. crab cake and spread the crab cake mixture over one fillet, season it and lay the other fillet on top and season it and melt some butter and drizzle it over the fillets and bake it at 375 degrees for approx. twenty  minutes and then switch to broil for 3-5 minutes until the flounder is golden in color. It’s ready! Enjoy!

I hope everyone had a great week last week. It’s real nice seeing many of you at the store. Thanks for stopping by.

STARTING THIS WEEK:

WE WILL BE TAKING ORDERS FOR: LIVE BLUE CRAB.

YOUR COST: THE SAME AS IT’S BEEN FOR YEARS: 5.99 LB.

ALL CRAB ARE #1 AND #2 IN SIZE. ALL MALES ONLY

ORDERS HAVE TO BE CALLED INTO CAPT’N DAVE’S BY WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON.

CRAB ARE CAUGHT ON THURSDAY AND DELIVERED TO US ON FRIDAY.

THAT’S THE PROGRAM FOR NOW. NO CHANGES, WE WANT DELIVERIES ON SATURDAY’S BUT RIGHT NOW THEY ARE ONLY OFFERING FRIDAY DELIVERY.

THANKSGIVING is right around the corner everyone!

If you need anything special from us, please try your best to get it out of the way early and that will help give us extra time to make sure we are able to get what you need.

We are open seven days a week and if you need to call us on a Sunday we’re here to help.

We’re getting a lot of Lobster orders for Thanksgiving and a lot of oyster orders.

Please remember that oysters are higher in price this year compared to last year. They are starting to come down some but not enough to make a difference. All I seem to do is pound this statement into these suppliers ears.

We should be able to get the oysters we need but reserved orders sure help us determine how much to secure.

We’ll have the oysters in 4# Gallons and also by the pound.

And also, in the shell by the dozen and by the case.

Another very popular dish for Thanksgiving is “Whole Salmon and Whole Snapper”

So, please reserve your order!

If anyone is not familiar with all the items we stock, we would love to have you drop by and check it out first hand.  We have a large wall display showing all the items we stock on a daily basis. We also add to the board as we bring in new items. So, if there is something you are having a hard time finding, please let us know, I will be more than happy to locate your product and we can add it to our inventory.

If it’s an unfamiliar product or our suppliers tell us that there is no request for it, this will be something we have no control of. But I will do everything I can to bring it in for you.

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(slightly seasoned). We also have Cajun Crab Dip(w/real crab meat) 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.

We also have Crawfish boudin, Pork and rice boudin, Aligator sausage, Andouille sausage, Crawfish sausage, Hot Louisiana sausage for a great half time treat during the game.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
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)

Breaded 13-15 per pound shrimp: 11.99 lb

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

Louisiana Hot Sausage: 7.99 lb (1 lb pkg)
With the Halibut season coming to an end around November 15th, I recently 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 over the past couple of months and the current cost in Dallas from all the suppliers is more than what I sell it 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.

I know many customers price check when you start seeing seafood prices climbing. As most of my customers know, I will bend over backwards to secure special items such as Sockeye, King Salmon, Halibut and Sea bass as long as I can purchase these items at a cost to keep my cost down for my customers.

My goal is to keep the cost down and to continue searching and acquiring the highest quality that I can for my customers.

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!

Great for the games!
