BagFrom the Proprietor
As the weather heats up, your car becomes a more dangerous place for fresh seafood. We happily provide ice with your seafood purchase, but we love it when we see our customers prepared for their commute with a cooler or hot-cold bag. Don't have one? We now have Quality Seafood Market logo hot-cold bags! Available in the retail market for $4.99 each. Even if you don't make regular trips to the market, the bags are perfect for keeping dairy and meat products cold, as well. I hope you have a wonderful weekend, and enjoy this gorgeous sunny weather!

Crawfish season
Crawfish season is slow to begin because of a series of cold fronts and dry weather. The mudbugs are still very small and expensive. We hope to have live crawfish available in the market by mid-March. Read more about how the weather has affected crawfish season here.

Recipe of the week
Sauteed Frog Legs with Tomato Garlic Butter (Emeril Lagasse)
Frog legs
1 pound large frog legs
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon Creole/Cajun seasoning
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/4 cup minced shallots
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/2 cup chopped fresh tomatoes, peeled and seeded
Salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley leaves
 
Cut the frog legs in half. Season both the legs and flour with Creole seasoning. In a large saute pan, over medium heat, melt the butter. Dredge the frog legs in the seasoned flour and shake to remove any excess flour. Add the frog legs to the hot pan and saute until golden, turning as needed, about 2 to 3 minutes each side. Add the shallots and garlic and saute for 1 minute. Add the tomatoes, season with salt and pepper, and cook for 1 minute. Add the wine, simmer for 2 minutes, then stir in the parsley. Remove from the heat and serve.
