The Wifeacita and I had to satisfy our oyster fix and traveled to Seabrook to fulfill it. The closure of Louisiana Foods store front drove us to the coast and we made a nice day of it. The beautiful blue waters of Galveston Bay took a few degrees off the stupidly high uppers 80’s in Houston.
We hit almost all of the markets and found the best deal at TH Seafood, 20.99 a quart, a couple of bucks less than LA Foods. They also had the best price on fresh red snapper at 6.79.
Caveat emptor. Most of the places offer “red snapper” fillets anywhere from 2.99 to 4.99 per pound. Please.
I’ve caught and cleaned too many snappers to know what a fillet looks like and these aren’t it. I give Rose’s credit as they mention on the sign that it is some kind of fish that starts with an I and tastes similar to red snapper.
Shrimp. Most don’t label where they are caught and there is so much farm raised out there. TH Seafood did label many as Gulf but some as not but the Gulf seemed to be the real deal. Be careful.
We took the scenic route back and saw the BB35 USS Texas plus the San Jacinto Monument and took the ferry to the thundering herd of I-10.
