A mid-evening stroll led my wife and I to Coastal Connections, a local seafood market specializing in Gulf Coast shrimp, fish, crawfish and oysters.
We were greeted by Brian, one of the operating partners, who let us sample the cajun fare; samples only since we were walking without cash or credit. The two small cups of seafood gumbo and crawfish etouffee left us hungry for more. All of their selections were fresh and ready to take home. Coastal Connections visit the Alabama and Florida coastline every week to bring home never-frozen fresh seafood.
They are located at 9674 Countryside Center Lane, at the corner of Bob Kirby and Middlebrook Pike.
This is NOT a paid advertisement. The food is just that damn good.
