At Hy-Vee, we're picky about our seafood. In fact, we're one of the only retailers in the nation with our own USDC Lot Inspector. That means we turn away a lot of seafood when it doesn't meet our standards. We inspect thoroughly because in our world "good enough" is not good enough. Now, that may make us seafood snobs, but it also makes sure you're getting the best seafood around.
The Gulf: Where flavor comes alive
They call it the "Gulf difference." It's the firm texture and natural sweetness you get from seafood that originates from the rich fishing grounds of the Gulf of Mexico. Freshwater minerals from two major rivers combine with saltwater from the Gulf to create a briny playground where the shrimp is sweeter.
Here are some great seafood recipes to try:
