We are known for great fried oysters!  Our oysters soak in buttermilk then are dredged in our own signature blend of cornmeal, flour, and spices and flash fried.  I was going to share this breading recipe, but my cohort Justin said some of our recipes need to remain a secret.  He made me laugh because our customers hire us for so much more than good food.  Our customers hire us for good food, but more importantly good food paired with great staff and all the things and time required to complete a job well done.  Believe me it is much more intensive than just cooking and serving!  So if you have not hired us as your caterer, I ask for your business!

I am sharing our remoulade recipe, which is very tasty with many seafood dishes including fried oysters, crab cakes, fish.  I wish all restaurants would make this and other seafood sauces homemade.  Fresh sauces are so worth the time and energy.  Premade/bought sauces do not cut it!

1 cup of mayonnaise

2 tablespoons of minced cornichons

2 tablespoons of minced flat leaf parsley
