Fish Lovers Rejoice!

Jack, my husband, walked in the door with a smile. “How about fish for dinner?” he said to my delight.

In the big bag he carried were freshly fried flounder, corn on the cob and hush pupies. Although I’m not a big fan of fried fish, Jack is, and I can live with it if the batter isn’t too heavy and the fish not overcooked. I adore corn on the cob! And who doesn’t like a good hush puppy? So we set the oven on Warm, put the food in, and a half hour later sat down to eat.

The flounder tasted fresh as could be and was perfectly cooked. The batter itself was tasty and not too heavy. So I ate some of it, then simply peeled the rest off of my fish and savored the flounder. The corn was perfectly cooked, too. That is, just barely cooked, so it tasted fresh off the field. And the hush puppies were the lightest, fluffiest, most delightful I’ve had in many a year!

This pleasant surprise came from Murphy’s Seafood Bargain, recently opened at 1201 Habersham St. just north of Henry.

Essentially a seller of sea food and fresh fish, Murphy will also cook to order.
In addition to the flounder, there were several other fish choices, among them Sea Bass, Tilapia, Mullet and Whiting. The fish menu will change, the owner says, depending on what’s caught that day. They also have a variety of shell fish — shrimp, several kinds of crab, oysters, conch, scallops, mussels, crawfish and more.

We also got a shrimp salad that night. A really wonderful shrimp salad, with small, sweet shrimp with a very light dressing that seems to include tiny bits of celery. Very possibly the best shrimp salad I’ve had in Savannah.

To order in advance call 912-335-7325. Hours are 10 to 6 Mon-Thur and 10-9 Fri & Sat
