Carol HuntsbergerFrom the Proprietor
It was such a treat to see so many of your smiling faces at the Taste of Austin event last week. Although we ran out of Spinach Krab Queso, there is plenty more in the market when you get a craving. If you haven't visited our website lately, we just added another installment of The Faces of Quality Seafood series, featuring Tom Cantu, who celebrated his 50th year at the market in 2010! This week in the restaurant, we're featuring a our Texas Bouillabaisse ($10.95). It's chocked full of oysters, clams, mussels, shrimp, and cod. We serve it up hot with a toasted bun - guaranteed to heat up your weekend! After you enjoy your meal, don't forget to stop by our retail counter and pick up your game day seafood items. Thanks for choosing Quality Seafood Market. We appreciate each and every one of you!

Recipe of the week
Roasted Whole Red Snapper (credit: Grace Parisi, Food & Wine)
Serves 4
Roasted Whole Red Snapper
Asian Ingredients
One whole 3-pound red snapper, cleaned and scaled
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
2 scallions, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon Asian sesame oil
1 tablespoon canola oil, plus more for rubbing

Mediterranean Ingredients
1/4 cup finely chopped parsley
2 tablespoons salted capers, rinsed and finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 tablespoon canola oil, plus more for rubbing

Caribbean Ingredients
2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
1 garlic clove, minced
1 serrano chile, seeded and minced
1 teaspoon chopped thyme
1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
1 tablespoon canola oil, plus more for rubbing

Pick your favorite flavor combination (Asian, Mediterranean or Caribbean, at left). PREPARE THE FISH: Choose one of the flavor combinations and chop all of the ingredients except the oil together with a large pinch of salt. Transfer the paste to a small bowl and stir in the oil. Make 5 parallel 3-inch-long slashes on each side of the snapper, slicing almost through to the bone. Lightly season the fish with salt and fill the slashes with the paste. Rub the fish all over with canola oil. COOK THE FISH: Preheat the oven to 425°. Transfer the fish to a heavy rimmed baking sheet so it stands upright. To keep the fish stable, splay the belly flaps and set a crumpled foil ball under the tail. Roast the fish for 30 minutes, until the flesh just flakes. Transfer the fish to a platter. Using 2 forks, lift the fillets off the bones and serve.
