You'd have a sack of salmonella by the time you arrived home unless they were precooked properly and packed in dry ice. No Seafood markets near the FQ. Try Big Fisherman on Magazine Street. They're called Crab Fingers.

B-I-L gets them, along with other seafood, down in Lafitte, LA, and has them packaged in dry ice, and seafood shipping box. He then sends “Counter-to-Counter” on Southwest, and I pick up my box of seafood.

Closest, that comes to mind would be Bevi, neat City Park. Not sure if they have service to air freight the purchase though?

Now, I have seen folk ship seafood as checked luggage, but one DOES need to have it packaged properly.

Good luck,
