ABOUT US

Monahan’s Seafood Market has been in business for over 38 years now, but everyday we come to work acting like it’s our first day on the job.

Because we are small and independently owned, we can be innovators. We can be flexible. And we can offer a wider selection and more options than our competitors.

Not only do we have a bountiful case of fresh seafood daily, we can fillet whole fish in store or custom grind for holidays. We have an ever-expanding file of recipes in the store and here on our site. We also offer a full complement of made-to-order, easy-to-heat take-home gourmet meals. And if you come by our store at lunchtime, we’ll happily serve you the daily special or cook to order any item in our case.

Don’t Skimp on the Shrimp!

Don’t Skimp on the Shrimp!

...The majority of shrimp sold in the U.S. is imported. This is unfortunate not only because of the problems of habitat (mangrove) destruction and the use of chemicals and antibiotics in other countries, but also because some of the world's best shrimp come from right here in the U.S! Wild Gulf shrimp has a firmer, "snappier" texture and much better flavor than imports. The Florida, Alabama and Texas shrimp that we sell at Monahan's are fantastic! No pre-cooked frozen shrimp here...

Sweet, Sweet Scallops

Sweet, Sweet Scallops

The Difference is in the Handling: Most of us have had scallops at home or in restaurants that have been great, good, not so good or just plain bad. Finding great sea scallops can be a confusing crap shoot. There is a HUGE variance in quality and labeling out there. "Dry Pack," "Chem Free," "Day Boat," "Diver," What the heck to these labels mean?

‘Twas a Brave Man Who Ate the First Oyster

‘Twas a Brave Man Who Ate the First Oyster

A muddy shell taken from the sea, cracked open to reveal a meat that resembled seal snot...but the ancients learned that there was something special inside those muddy shells...M.F.K. Fisher describes the taste of oysters as "more like the smell of rock pools at low tide than any other food in the world." I agree. There is nothing that compares with the ritual of shucking and savoring the essence of the entire sea from its own beautiful mother of pearl cup. Primitive, elegant—the true celebration of life.
