With the abundance of fresh seafood, it's almost a requirement for visitors to head to their local seafood market and pick up some fresh filets, shellfish and crustaceans to take home and transform into a fantastic family feast.
Many of the seafood markets on the Outer Banks, like Risky Business Seafood or Buxton Seafood, are family-owned establishments that have been serving happy patrons for generations. While some fare is strictly seasonal, like cobia or dolphin, a number of staples are available throughout the year, including shrimp, scallops, mussels and even crab legs.
Load up on all the ingredients you'll need for a seafood feast at the beach house or a barbecue on the beach, and you're sure to fall in love with home cooking, Outer Banks style. The butchers & seafood markets on the Outer Banks have everything you need, including condiments, seasonings and marinades, to make a seafood meal simply unforgettable.
