Fried oyster salad from Stab’s Prime Steak and Seafood

A trip to Stab’s is always a treat. When I go, I always try to order something new. This time, I went out of my comfort zone and ordered the fried oyster salad. I know a salad isn’t extravagant or unique by any means, but I’m just beginning to try oysters. I started with chargrilled, and now I’m moving on to fried. To be determined if I’ll try raw anytime soon. 

The fried oyster salad, besides the oysters, includes a fresh mix of romaine lettuce and spinach, honey goat cheese, candied pecans and is topped with Tabasco honey dressing. The sweet taste of the goat cheese and pecans cuts through the spice of the dressing, while the oysters provide a crunchy finish. 

Not pictured: a cup of the French onion soup — if you haven’t had it, I highly recommend it.

Meatballs appetizer at Randazzo’s Italian Market in Denham Springs

I had heard about the authentic Italian cooking going on at Randazzo’s in Denham Springs and finally made my way over there (taking in several antique stores while I was at it). The meatball appetizer did not disappoint!

Meatballs appetizer at Randazzo’s Italian Market in Denham Springs.

The three hearty meatballs were covered in the restaurant’s thin, by American standards, but tasty marinara sauce and a liberal dose of cheese — with a side of ciabatta bread. The meatballs hit the spot, with the right blend of seasoning and other ingredients.

The next time I find myself in Denham Springs, I predict that I might develop a craving for this $12 appetizer featuring three oversized and filling meatballs. 

Randazzo’s is located at 240 Capitol St., Denham Springs. (225) 667-4557. The restaurant is closed Sunday and Monday, open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday and 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday and Saturdays. (Jan Risher, features editor)
