Tacos At Home Courtesy Of TJ’s Seafood Market

Steve_Jill_2by Steven Doyle

I am often asked since I dine out so frequently if I ever cook at home. The answer is yes, and I am quite capable. But the fact is I dine out nearly every meal, and I do miss cooking at home. But as fortune would have it I had a chance to do just that when a friend invited me over this week.  But I cheated a bit by stopping in at TJ’s Seafood Market for a little assistance.

I dropped by the TJ’s for a little friendly advice from my favorite fishmonger, Jon Alexis. Alexis suggested for light bites to grab some jumbo shrimp that they prepare fresh each day, and maybe a bit of their signature smoked salmon and large lump crab. This sounded perfect for an evening of wine and conversation, and decided to make tacos out of all the ingredients. Little was I aware but these would be the best tacos that mankind has ever known, I humbly submit. Continue reading

TJ’s Goes French For A Night

10 Jon starts off the night with a lovely Pepiere Muscadetby Joey Stewart

Ever since opening his Oak Lawn location in 2012, TJ’s Fresh Seafood Market has been hosting specialty dinners that feature seafood prepared in worldly ways and paired with wines of that region. Tuesday evening owner and purveyor Jon Alexis threw a French Style seven-course dinner to an excited and eager full house.

For each course Jon described the wine pairing, while Executive Chef Scott Hoffner discussed the ingredients and execution of the dish.  A main supplier of TJ’s, whose Red Grouper was featured in the 3rd course, was on site to tell the diners how Jon decides what fish to select (Jon can be quite picky), the state of sustainability in our oceans today, and the unique fish that often get thrown away in the U.S. while it is considered a delicacy (and pricey!) overseas.  Continue reading
