Southport’s only oyster bar has much more than just oysters

Moore Street Oyster Bar in Southport is more than just that.

Moore Street Oyster Bar in Southport is more than just that.

They’ve got lobster rangoons, fried crab balls, lobster grilled cheese, New Orleans BBQ shrimp and of course, steamer pots.

You can build your own steamer pot by choosing what you want to go in it.

Chef Dustin Garrett showed us how to make the perfect shrimp steamer pot.

Here’s what goes in it:

  • Fresh, North Carolina shrimp. Medium sized.
  • Preboiled red potatoes
  • Butter boiled corn
  • Precooked and smoked andouille
  • New Orleans style Cajun spices

How it’s made:

  • Put all the ingredients minus the spices in a perforated pan
  • Place in steamer for 5 – 8 minutes
  • Once the shrimp is fully cooked, toss all of the ingredients with the New Orleans Cajun spices
  • Add some butter and toss
  • Drizzle a little bit of fresh lemon juice and fresh parsley on top.

Dig in and enjoy!
