I’ll start shorting the parent company today based on prior results
I’m down to try the outback ayce Jr. Just let me know. Maybe you can round up a few people. I’m not too good at rounding up a party.
I live on the Gulf Coast and have no problem with frozen Gulf shrimp as fresh only last a couple of days at best. I usually buy fresh off the dock but it is difficult to tell the difference between fresh and properly frozen Gulf shrimp and I’ve been eating it all my life.
I’m more concerned with farm raised which I won’t do and am certain all the ayce is farm raised. I’ve given up eating shrimp in Chinese restaurants for this reason, in fact the Wifeacita and I agree we’re shrimped out and haven’t eaten any all year despite abundant availability and low prices.
This will come to a crashing halt as we’ll be in Galveston soon but the focus will be on oysters, crab, and fish in that order with shrimp being a distant fourth.
Have a few crabs for me on your journey!
So do you guys eat a lot of red shrimp in your area?
Some must because they’re on sale at MY HEB every couple of weeks or so from the Sea of Cortez or Argentina but I’m a Gulf shrimp guy and have never tried the red. MY HEB is the best with prime steaks and a killer seafood department with great selection and prices especially on steaks, Bob.
I mentioned no shrimp recently but that’s going to change because we’re going 50 miles out of our way on the way to Galveston for oyster and soft shell crab po boys and some of the best fried shrimp on the planet a la carte, heck even better than mine.
We’ll spend the better part of a week in a motel on the Seawall feasting on fresh seafood before heading to my cousin’s awesome canal home and fresh from the dock Gulf shrimp, fishing at night off the deck.
Crabs! Yes a couple will be consumed in your name at two different places.
We get them BBQ Texas style which is really fried with lots of Cajun seasoning.
I introduced the Wifeacita to the joys and wonders of blue crabs and oysters. She is Hispanic and very frugal and gets every tiny bit of meat out of her crabs and then turns her attention to my leftovers. We bring our own nutcrackers and picks to the table.
There are at least two whole blackened flounders with my name on them.
I wish some of you guys could come down her and I have become fascinated by the Jersey Shore food scene. Does anybody have extra money to burn?

Can’t imagine who I thought of when I saw this…
How to conquer Red Lobster’s Endless Shrimp
Darn…waited too long to edit my post. Some of my favorite quotes:
“Do not dress up. This is an athletic endeavor. Elastic waistbands are your best friend.”
“Consider visiting on a day of the week when it’ll be less busy, like a Monday or Tuesday. You don’t want a server who’s slammed and can’t quickly dispatch your 17th order of shrimp.”
And finally, “Sides are a blessing in disguise. Order what you like, but only take bites of them when you’ve got shrimp fatigue.”
Some coconut shrimp at Charley’s in long branch. 5 bucks during happy hour and I think all night long on wed night. They were ok, not bad for 5 bucks. The sauce was very sweet but it worked for me in moderation. The clams casino were 5 bucks too. They weren’t the best, but at 5 bucks a plate I really can’t complain. Half price beers and carton 077xx on tap. Not a bad outing.
So my friend sends me this pic after I was there last night having some prime rib. Any local shrimp fans deserve to try the voodoo shrimp at charleys. This is a top notch dish with some nice spice and a really unique flavor! This makes a great lunch for ten bucks
That looks great Johnny. How does it compare to Drew’s? It looks like a completely different presentation.
Hey Eli. Yes it is definitely a different dish. The garlic toast points team up nicely with the shrimp, and I love to sop up that sauce. The heat is actually there but does not ruin the dish. It’s a nice sherry BBQ sauce that has a really bold flavor. Drews shrimp are higher quality, larger and better texture-wise, but the amount of shrimp you get with this dish is nice and the pic is probably deceiving. Charley’s dish has no cream so it is different indeed. I bet drew would really like these. His food blows this place out of the water, but I stumbled across this dish and they do it well.
That sherry BBQ sauce sounds good. I think there is room in this state for more than one interpretation of voodoo shrimp
After one of your previous recommendations of this dish, I ordered it at the bar. The bartender shook his head no. I asked, “Not good?” Again he shook his head no. I’ll be sure to order it anyway the next time we’re there. Maybe it just isn’t his thing.
Hmmm…well everyone has different tastes. I think this dish is very good. It does have some decent spice so if you’re sensitive to that, it may not be for you. It’s only ten bucks so it isn’t a big loss if you’re not into it. Keep us posted. Ps… My friend lives in long branch and now goes to this spot just to get those shrimp. I brought him a few one day and he loved them.
Spanos Pt pleasant beach shrimp molly ( 4/5 jumbo shrimp in a spicy tomato sauce) $16 or shrimp in oil & garlic (20 -$14) my two favorites plus rest of menu pretty dam good ! BYOB reasonably priced
Well I’ll take this temperature any day of the week in January! I did a costco and Lidl trip so I stopped at keyport for the combo platter. Good as last time and the view of the keyport creek was absolutely stunning. Words can’t express how you feel when the sun hits that precise angle and it glistens off the public garbage can protruding proudly out of the middle of the creek at low tide
Nice CJ. Very jealous sir
Looks good. Guilty pleasure.
