Avalon Seafood and Produce Market

Avalon Seafood Photo, New Jersey, United States

This unassuming sounding little stop serves truly excellent food with a gourmet flair. The seafood is the freshest you will find on Jersey shore, but I must warn you: you will pay a little more for this ultimate experience in take-out seafood dining.

Rated #1 "Best Seafood to Go"(Shore Issue)by Philadelphia Magazine, it's quite popular by regulars of Seven Mile Island.

You might want to start with some Blue Claw Clab fingers, served with an unusual mustard sauce($8.95). Then, some steamed clams would be great for a group--you get 100 clams for $36.95. They also offer u-peel shrimp, clams casino, clams on half shell, marinated portabellas ,and mushroom stuffed with crab.

If you like soups (as I do), you will love their signature Seafood Cream Crab Bisque--rich creamy base, with lots and lots of crab, and finished with a touch of sherry. (I could live on this soup.) A quart goes for $16.95. They also offer homemade clam chowder (both types) at $9.95 a quart.

Order any type of broiled and/or fried seafood you can imagine: crabcake, shrimp, scallops, sea bass, orange roughy, flounder, oysters, softshells, yellow-fin tuna, swordfish, bluefish and lobster and they serve it up piping hot and crisp-fried. All priced between $12.95 to $22.95 (for stuffed lobster tail).

For a lighter menu, you can grab some; lobster tail stuffed with crab salad, homemade tuna salad (not from a can!), Chicken Salad Veronique, or Shrimp Salad.

Finish off with a fresh fruit pie, luscious Key Lime Pie, or a fresh fruit salad. Got the munchies? Try mango salsa, guacamole, or fresh baked breads. And of course they carry fresh Jersey corn and tomatoes (in season).

Call ahead, so your order is ready to pick up when you get there.
