There's a sea of difference in quality of seafood
Hy-Vee is one of the only retailers in the midwest with its own U.S. Department of Commerce (USDC) lot Inspector to ensure only the best seafood makes it to your store. And look no further than your Hy-Vee Seafood counter for expert cooking tips and recipes for crab, shrimp and fish.
Wild Louisiana Gulf Shrimp is a big deal
When you buy fresh Wild Louisiana Gulf Shrimp at Hy-Vee, you're not only supporting sustainable fishing, but also a way of life that's been handed down for generations. The tradition of catching, cooking and eating shrimp runs deep in the veins of the fishermen who trawl the coastal waters of Louisiana to bring the freshest shrimp to your table.
At Hy-Vee, Alaska crab is king
Harvested wild from the icy, clean waters of the far north and caught fresh just for Hy-Vee, Alaska crab is the best, the sweetest and the meatiest crab you'll find.
