Where to get your fresh seafood for Easter
While the kids (and the sweet-toothed grown-ups) still see Easter as The Chocolate Holiday, more and more Aussie adults are pairing the occasion with fresh seafood.
But where to tackle the task of stocking up on everything you need for the annual Good Friday feast without wasting a single squid on terrible trout?
From fin-tastic fish to scallops that will have you saying ‘oh my cod!’ and every kind of shellfish in between, there’s nothing these purveyors of fresh seafood Brisbane wide can’t provide.
The Fishery | Milton
Open for all your Easter seafood needs, The Fishery makes it shrimple to grab the freshest catch, even if you’re not too organised. Owner Murray (an experienced chef) can even dish up advice on what to pick and how to cook it–talk about a helpful sole! If you’re still not feeling confident, check out their takeaway menu–they also serve up fish and chips we love to carp on about. Give them a call on 3369 4707 to pre-order today.
The Stores Grocer | West End
This West End staple has you sorted for seafood – we’re talking king prawns, oysters, barramundi and more! Even better, The Stores now offers online ordering, so you can menu plan, buy all the goodies for your weekend of feasting, and get your order in all in one place. Head here to check it out.
Reef Seafood & Sushi | Newstead
This Newstead spot doesn’t just sell great local produce–they can also make a meal of it for you to take-away, and they even have a Japanese section if you’re angling for some sashimi. Whether you’re chasing a couple of kilos of prawns or a massive seafood platter, give them a call on 5528 4477 to place your order for Easter today!
Samies Seafood | Hamilton
Known as the “seafood hub” of Brisbane, Samies has been a family-operated business for over 30 years, forever luring customers back for their mouth-watering prawns, bugs and crabs. The staff will even fillet your fish in-store, or (if cooking is a pain in the bass) fry up huge batches of battered goodness for you to take away.
Morgans | Scarborough
Pre-order and pick up your platter this Easter, or save the fuss and have it delivered straight to your door (if you’re in the area)! Morgans offers no-fuss fish to ensure your holiday goes swimmingly. With over 180 seafood products and a takeaway outlet that includes sushi and oysters, we might just perch ourselves there over Easter!
The Fish Factory | Morningside
The Fish Factory is an institution for southsiders, and while their mixed grill for one (bugs, prawns, calamari, scallops and chips) is amazing, it’s the ocean-fresh produce that brings in the inspired chefs! Mountains of fish, prawns, oysters and crabs lay on icy displays for you to trawl through, and they’ll even have a drive-through service up and running on Thursday, April 9 from 9 am to 2 pm.
One Fish Two Fish | Woolloongabba
They might be temporarily closed to weather COVID, but that won’t stop this Gabba team of seafood lovers from bringing you one delicious Easter! You can pre-order oysters, peeled prawns (thank God), and wine for pick-up or delivery on Thursday to enjoy over the Easter weekend! Head here for more info and to order.
Now that’s up-scale.
