Here in Louisiana food isn’t just something we eat, it is a way of life. Most of our get togethers here are centered around food. A popular Cajun dish is corn and crawfish bisque. Now this can be served in two ways, either a Roux based or a Cream based. I personally like my bisque with a cream base so that’s the recipe I’ll use for this article. Give this recipe a try, and then leave me a comment telling me how it came out!

I’ll be totally honest with ya’ll, I’ve never been a shrimp cocktail fan. it just didn’t ever sound appealing. Cold shrimp and jarred sauce that cost an arm and a leg at a restaurant? No thanks, I’ll pass. Then I came across this recipe online and saw that this lady added a bit of zing to a usually boring dish and I thought “Why not?”. So I gave it a try and WOW, I honestly didn’t think I’d like it as much as I did! So to all the skeptics reading this, come on over to the light, it is delicious! Also, I haven’t tried it yet, but the girl suggests trying it with tortilla chips!

1/4 cup of ketchup
1/4 cup of lime juice
Hot pepper sauce (to taste)
1/4 cup of prepared horseradish
Salt to taste

Have you ever gotten excited about getting a great meal with fish or seafood only to be disappointed when you took your first bite. The taste of the fish was overwhelming. You knew right away that it was not fresh. Here are some tips that will help you avoid serving fish or seafood that might not just taste bad but could be unhealthy.

Top 10 Tips On How To Shop For Fresh Fish And Seafood

Top 10 Tips On How To Shop For Fresh Fish And Seafood Tip #1 – Go to a reputable store or fishmonger.

This may sound very basic but make sure you are dealing with someone who has a good reputation. Ask your friends and people you work with who they buy there fresh fish and seafood from.

Top 10 Tips On How To Shop For Fresh Fish And Seafood Tip # 2 – Ask what is the freshest or check what the catch of the day is.

Again this is a very simple question but one that many people do not think to ask. The people at the store will be able to tell you when they receive their products, what days and times. This will help you know the best time to buy.

Top 10 Tips On How To Shop For Fresh Fish And Seafood Tip # 3 – Don’t be misguided by the term “fresh.”

Make sure and ask if the fish has been frozen. For many locations that are some distance from the ocean or bodies of fresh water this could be the case.

Top 10 Tips On How To Shop For Fresh Fish And Seafood Tip # 4 – Look for firm, shiny flesh. It should bounce back when touched.

Top 10 Tips On How To Shop For Fresh Fish And Seafood Tip # 5 – Sniff the fish.

If you are looking at a really “fresh” fish then it should not have a “fishy” smell. It should however have the smell of a fresh ocean breeze.

Top 10 Tips On How To Shop For Fresh Fish And Seafood Tip # 6 – Check the eyes.

The eyes of a fresh fish will be clear without any cloudiness. They should also have a slight bulge to them.

Top 10 Tips On How To Shop For Fresh Fish And Seafood Tip # 7 – Check the gills.

If whole, the gills should have a bright pink/red color and should also be wet, not slimy or dry.

Top 10 Tips On How To Shop For Fresh Fish And Seafood Tip # 8 – Check cuts of fish.

Fresh fish fillets and steaks should be moist and without discoloration.

Top 10 Tips On How To Shop For Fresh Fish And Seafood Tip # 9 – On Fillets and steaks, look for flesh separation and gaps.

When fish is not fresh the meat will separate from itself and is a sign that it is not fresh.

Top 10 Tips On How To Shop For Fresh Fish And Seafood Tip # 10 -Look for discoloration

It the fish has any discoloration such as , brown or yellow edges,  and/ or if it has a spongy consistency, these are all signs of aging fish.

 

These tips will help to insure that the fish you are buying is fresh and give you the best opportunity to enjoy your meal.

As a kid I spent my summers out in Montauk, a small fishing town in Long Island, aboard my family’s fishing boat, the “Jinx.” The fish we caught would end up on our dinner table that same night. If not cooked by my mother, our favorite place to take the fish to be cooked would be “Wok N’ Roll” a great little Chinese restaurant in the middle of town.

Captain Tony Maltese sources a lot of our fish directly from the boats that catch them. The fish go straight from the boat into our stores giving the same quality and freshness he had out in Montauk on your dinner table at home.

Captain Tony’s Tips

With seafood freshness is king
A fresh fish should not smell
Look at the gills, they should have bright red coloring
