How to Take Gulf Coast Seafood Home with You

Gulf Shores & Orange Beach

Just because you’re heading home, it doesn’t mean the taste of the Alabama Gulf Coast can’t go with you. Pack up a heaping helping of shrimp, fish, crab or other seafood specialties to enjoy the delectable goodness of seafood from Gulf Shores and Orange Beach at home. Many of our local seafood producers and markets offer a quick and easy way to get the bounty from the Gulf to your home.

Get your supply of fresh and frozen seafood ranging from peeled Gulf shrimp, crawfish and crab to flounder and grouper filets, tuna steaks and red snapper at Billy’s Seafood in Bon Secour. Billy’s says, “If it swims, we’ve got it.” Billy’s can fill your cooler or even ship it to your front door, saving you the trouble of finding cargo room. This is also a plus if you’re already home and have a craving for some fresh, Gulf seafood!

Enjoy a Low Country Boil of fresh Gulf shrimp, sausage, corn on the cob and potatoes from the Gulf Shores Seafood & Meat Market. The market can have your seafood dinner ready for you to pick up for an evening at your Orange Beach condo or pack some delicacies for your trip home. Get jumbo shrimp, royal reds, mahi mahi and cobia to take with you or have them bundle some oysters, seafood gumbo or corn and crab chowder for a savory meal at home.

Some visitors claim a visit to Gulf Shores and Orange Beach isn’t complete without a trip to Blalock Seafood and Specialty Market in Orange Beach. Find your fresh seafood here, along with other specialties such as seasoning, pasta, breads, chutneys, sauces and side dishes.
