Southern Foodways' always-excellent video series returns this week with a short documentary about Bayley's Seafood, which originally opened in 1947. Bayley's, in the small town of Theodore, Alabama, has been owned by the same family since its debut, and Bill Bayley, Jr., son of the original founder, reminisces about growing up in the restaurant, where he would clean 100 to 150 pounds of flounder every week. He also walks filmmaker Wes Wages through two of Bayley's signature dishes: the West Indies salad, featuring crab meat, onion, oil and vinegar; and fried crab claws. Go, watch:
