Captain Sid's in Metarie
We've ordered boil spice from Captain Sid's in Metairie for the last 15 years. They've always been a bit flaky, but now they're not answering the phone at all.
Is Captain Sid's still in business? Any quirkiness of their hours I need to know about?
A friend of mine introduced me to Sid about 20 years ago. Sid told me he put his seasoning on everything, meat to eggs to cereal. I thought it a little extreme, but Sid gave me (he had not yet began selling it commercially yet) about 5 lbs.
I now use this in my eggs, on noodles, any type of meat and it works quite well for blackening, just remember the blackening is a method, not a color.
I don't visit NOLA without picking up some seasoning. Had cabbie stop there on the way from the airport last week just to pick up 15 lbs, which I shipped home.
However, this is the first time the salt was not pulverized, but that isn't a problem
