One quick note about the All You Can Eat Seafood and All You Can Eat Snow Crab Legs.
This week we will have Royal Reds on the menu. If you don’t know what they are, you’re invited to read on below. Royal Reds are one of the best tasting shrimp you can find around the area.
Dear Seafood Lover:
By now you’ve heard about the All You Can Eat Seafood Tuesday and All You Can Eat Snow Crab Legs event at The Pelican Reef.
It’s currently the most amazing seafood meal deal you’ll find in Mobile, Theodore, and the nearby area.
But that’s not all.
A few weeks ago, we made the event even better.
We added Royal Red Shrimp to the menu.
Or Royal Reds for short.
And that one change caused the #1 question we’ve ever had at The Pelican Reef.
“What exactly are Royal Reds?”
Here’s the answer for you, but first, let me tell you this.
When our close friends and family ask us about Royal Reds, here’s what we say:
“You’ve got to try them if you get the chance.”
That being said, here’s every interesting little detail about Royal Reds.
Royal Reds (Pleoticus Robustus) are the most delicate of native shrimp. However, that doesn’t take away from their flavor. In fact, they have a certain sweetness to them when compared to other shrimp.
These shrimp thrive deep down in the cold dark depths of the Gulf, ranging from 1,200 ft. to over a half mile down.
Scientists don’t really know why this depth adds to their sweetness. We only know that they are the most delicious kind of shrimp you can eat locally.
That’s why we added them to our menu for All You Can Eat Seafood Tuesday.
We could go on and on about them.
Instead here’s what some others have to say:
” After tasting seven varieties [of shrimp] … I can safely proclaim that wild-caught shrimp taste better, and that royal reds taste best of all. They’re comparable in size and price to other shrimp, but they’re often described as both sweeter and saltier, and they have a distinctive, more delicate texture. In spite of the difficulty in harvesting them, they remain a sort of Holy Grail among shrimp lovers.”
– Source: “Deep Down, My Favorite Shrimp,” John Martin Taylor in a special article about gulf shrimp.
” These colorful crustaceans are found only in deepest, coldest waters of the Gulf, which makes coastal Alabama one of the few places you can find them in large quantities. The main shrimp season is fall, but they’re available year-round.”
– Source: Website called “I Love Alabama Food”.
“…. But there is another type of shrimp on the market, a type that is very popular in Coastal Alabama and very few other places else in the world. They are called Royal Reds and they are good enough to befit that regal moniker.
What, you ask, do they taste like? Easy answer is shrimp, but that would be selling them short. They are, to me, silky and rich with a consistency not unlike lobster.”
– Source: D. Holloway in an article on Al.com.
So there you have it.
Royal Reds are the top of the line and most delicious of Gulf shrimp.
And you can get all you want at the All You Can Eat Seafood Tuesday at The Pelican Reef.
For all the full details about the Tuesday event, please see our invitation to you below.
