Lenten Foods, Part 1: Livening Up Seafood

Giving up your favorite cut of steak for Lent doesn't mean abstaining from flavor.  We carry savory, spicy and salt-free blends and recipes that are healthy and delicious for fish, shrimp and other seafood. Try one of these alternatives:

Savory Blends

Baton Rouge BBQ Blend

Perfect for grilling shrimp or searing scallops.  Just add it to a little butter or olive oil, marinate seafood and then, voila!  You have an appetizing main course that is not too sweet or too spicy.

Island Coconut Rub

This blend's flavors—highlighting coconut flakes, lemongrass, garlic, and ginger—complement any seafood as a rub or marinade.  

Spicy Blends

Seafood Mojo

Old Bay has nothing on this in-house blend that transforms any seafood into a perfect dish.  It is also wonderful in étouffée, sauce piquante and seafood gumbo!

Bayou Lafourche Blend

Our Red Stick Spice Co. in-house blend de rèsistance.  White and black pepper, sweet basil and ground filè harmonize with other spices, making this an excellent choice for seafood and marinades.  And when Lent is over, you’ll find it is delicious on pork and chicken too.

Salt Free

Soprano’s Creole Blend

Created by Shirley Soprano in Morganza, LA, this versatile blend pairs well with any type of seafood, gumbo, and étouffée. It also gives prepared vegetables a little kick.

Bonnes Herbes

Originally formulated in Paris and replicated in our shop, this light and delicate in-house blend serves as a great savory alternative for seafood.  It is also delicious on vegetables and in salad dressings.
