The Seafood Trick You Need To
Take Advantage
Of At Publix
By Chase Shustack
If you call the Southeastern parts of the United States home, especially in Florida and Georgia, you may be familiar with the supermarket, Publix. Whether you're a die-hard Publix fan or a first-time visitor who's new to the store, it's suggested that you try the seafood — especially if you know a certain trick to ordering it.
In a Publix, you can approach the seafood counter and order your choice of seafood — be it fish, crab, or lobster — and get it steamed and seasoned for you at no extra charge. You can choose from lemon pepper, Old Bay, or Cajun seasoning, and the steaming only takes a few minutes, so you're free to browse while it cooks.
You can buy what Publix refers to as "cook-in-bag dinners"—anything from shrimp, scallops, or four types of fish—which is a cooking method where the food is cooked inside a special bag. Customers can also select items from the "ready-to-eat" section, which includes tuna spreads, smoked fish, and pre-steamed lobster tails.
