This Petite Pro Eater Crushed 642 Shrimp In A Single Sitting

There was a summer where I ate about 30 pieces of shrimp over the course of a barbecue. While 12-year-old Pete was pretty proud of this accomplishment, 30 shrimp become dwarfed when compared to a legendary professional eater such as Molly Schuyler.

In a recent live stream event held at the San Pedro Fish Market Grille in Rolling Hills, CA, Schuyler managed to devour more than 600 shrimp in a single sitting.

The feat was broadcast live on Twitch in honor of National Shrimp Day last week. Schuyler was given an hour to see exactly how many shrimp she could handle from the viral seafood restaurant chain.

With about a minute to spare, she was able to knock out exactly 642 pieces of shrimp as she cleared two platters filled to the brim. We won’t know for sure how many more she would have bested in that final minute had there been more shrimp on the table, but her entry in the shrimp-eating book of records is a legendary one.

Schuyler, a seasoned professional, is no stranger to vast quantities of food. In another recent live stream, she crushed 360 chicken nuggets from Burger King in a single session — the equivalent of 11.5 pounds, dipping sauce not included.

Petite Competitive Eater Will Attempt To Eat Over 500 Shrimp For National Shrimp Day

With National Shrimp Day coming on May 10th, top-ranked female competitive eater Molly Schuyler is raising the stakes high on her latest challenge.

Fresh off of a 360-nugget eating feat on the Foodbeast Challenger League, Schuyler is going to attempt to eat at least 500 shrimp from San Pedro Fish Market. The viral seafood emporium regularly hosts a similar eating challenge, and the current world record there stands at 7 pounds, which Joey Chestnut downed in 2018.

If Schuyler makes it to 500 shrimp, she’ll easily blow by that record. Schuyler will be eating large shrimp, which total somewhere between 31-37 total per pound. At most, she’ll need to eat 260 shrimp to beat Chestnut’s record. Though it should be mentioned that Chestnut set his record in about 7 minutes and Schuyler won’t really be timed for hers. Perhaps she’ll attempt to surpass him in those first few minutes and take her time afterwards.

San Pedro’s isn’t the only shrimp challenge out there with a world record, as Chestnut has also eaten 18 pounds of shrimp cocktail in an astonishing 8 minutes. Although there’s no cocktail sauce here, if Schuyler takes out an astounding 667 shrimp, she can blow by that mark too.

Considering that those 350 nuggets were light work, seeing Schuyler go for either of these records should be a spectacle to be behold.

San Pedro Shrimp Tray Twitch Giveaway!

You can tune in to Foodbeast’s Twitch channel on May 10th at 3:00 PM PST to witness Schuyler’s record-breaking attempt. San Pedro will also be giving away a few of their world famous shrimp trays to Foodbeast Twitch followers. To win, all you have to do is enter in the embed above by following Foodbeast on Twitch.

The ‘Shipwreck’ Is A Massive Seafood Sandwich Built On A Loaf Of Garlic Bread


The best part of hitting up a seafood emporium is the variety of options you have available. Everything from freshly fried calamari to creamy clam chowder and freshly grilled fish is on deck.

While it may be hard to pick just one item to enjoy, there’s always the option of combining them all together, and this sandwich does just that.

Called the Shipwreck, this all-in-one sub is easily enough to feed the entire squad. Found at the San Pedro Fish Market Grille, this bountiful fish sandwich carries all of the ocean’s most mouthwatering treasures.

That involves heaps of fried calamari, slabs of grilled salmon, and a healthy portion of clam chowder (yes, you get soup IN this sandwich) tucked into made-to-order garlic bread. It’s all brought together with deep-fried potatoes, fajita vegetables with cheese, and San Pedro’s Secret Sauce.

All three locations of the San Pedro Fish Market Grille, in Wilmington, Rolling Hills Estates, and Harbor City, California, are now carrying The Shipwreck through the end of January. If you can’t make the drive out to one of the Grilles to try this in person, San Pedro Fish Market does sell spices, hot sauces, and Minute Meals online that you can order to make this bad boy within the confines of your own kitchen.

The Shipwreck is the seafood enthusiast’s cheat meal and the sandwich fanatic’s dream all wrapped up in one, and is an absolute beast capable of capsizing almost any appetite. It’s worth the challenge of seeking out and conquering, whether it be solo or with a couple of hungry pals.

California’s Largest Fish Market Is Grappling To Penetrate America’s Grocery Stores

As the largest fish market on the West Coast, the San Pedro Fish Market is no stranger to success, however, one of their newer ventures may be in jeopardy.

Tommy “The Boss” Amalfitano continues to manage operations at the actual fish market and restaurant in California, as Henry, Mike, and Tommy Jr. are pitching their line of frozen seafood products at the annual Boston Seafood Expo in Massachusetts.

While Mike and Anthony, one of his new consultants for the grocery products, try to get business done and meet with potential buyers, Henry and Tommy Jr. appear to be more interested in trying out samples on the expo floor.

Mike was definitely under a lot of pressure at the Seafood Expo. His frozen products project, which he launched five years back, hasn’t been as successful as he’s wanted it to be, and he’s counting on some big buys and client contracts to help turn things around. Plus, there’s always the added stress of Tommy Sr. not being too pleased with the frozen foods side of the business either, and he’s got his own take on what both a win and a loss at the Boston Seafood Expo looks like.

“Success means the project goes on. No success means you gotta make a decision. Cut the project, get rid of them, do something. If they don’t produce, what the hell good are they?”

Here’s to hoping that the San Pedro team in Boston can bring in some new business for their frozen products. Their futures at the fish market may very well depend on it.

What California’s Largest Fish Market Looks Like On Its Busiest Day

The San Pedro Fish Market and Restaurant is one of the most highly trafficked restaurant locations on the West Coast, seeing more than 20,000 visitors on weekends.

If you’ve ever been there, you already know that timing is everything. With only a few freeway entrances leading into the Port of Los Angeles, the West Coast’s largest fish market becomes overrun with traffic, creating long lines and an ocean of hungry people.

Still, the Kings of Fish, the family of principal owners of San Pedro’s legendary seafood market, are prepared to deal with the hoards of seafood hungry crowds that are willing to wait hours in line for a table.

Well, they would be if they were actually in the state.

With three members of the Kings Of Fish family more than 3,000 miles away from the sunny skies of San Pedro, the San Pedro Fish Market is tested on one of its busiest weekends, and actually needing to close the doors in order to accommodate the massive demand for shrimp trays and giant Coronas.

While Tommy “The Boss” Amalfitano, is trying to quell historically large crowds, his counterparts are “working” at the Boston Seafood Expo, trying to market a frozen seafood product.

But, by the looks of it, the Three Stooges of San Pedro can barely read the expo map to find their product booth and seem to be struggling after a long night in Boston.

While Tommy Sr. is over his head in clientele, he hopes the boys in Boston won’t let him down. But, being the veteran that he is, Tommy Sr. doesn’t believe anything until he sees it.  And on the busiest day at San Pedro Fish Market, all he sees are long lines — with his Kings of Fish nowhere in sight.

Are The Kings Of Fi$h Working Hard Or Hardly Working?

In episode 12 of the Kings Of Fi$h series, the old adage, “when the cat’s away, the mice will play,” could be the best analogy for any member of the The San Pedro Fish Market family, especially when Tommy “The Boss” Amalfitano is not in sight.

Having returned to his day-to-day routine of running the San Pedro Fish Market after a mini-stint in retirement, Tommy “The Boss”Amalfitano is more fired up than ever. But, that doesn’t mean he’s a happy camper.

Adding to his frustration, Henry, Mike, and Tommy Jr. head to Boston, Mass. — during St. Patrick’s Day weekend — for the annual Boston Seafood Expo to market the company’s frozen seafood product. However, the Three Stooges of San Pedro seem to be celebrating St. Patty’s Day nearly 3,000 away from Tommy Sr. — and loving every minute of it.

While the boys are away, Tommy Sr. is left to oversee daily operations in San Pedro, and as a result, expresses his concern about what the trio is actually accomplishing. The only thing that Tommy Sr. seems confident in is the fact that his seafood market is running efficiently without them.

“Who the hell needs ’em? This place is running just fine. Whether they’re here or not — we’re rollin!” — Tommy “The Boss” Amalfitano

As Mike, Henry, and Tommy Jr. head to the seafood expo after a long night of celebrating Irish heritage, it’s clear they’re in over their heads — since they can’t even find their booth.

Still, the future of the company rests on the success of the frozen product, and if the boys don’t get their act together — the entire company will be on ice.

Meet The Super Tray XXXL: San Pedro Fish Market’s MASSIVE 100-Pound Seafood Mountain

A few months ago, FOODBEAST broke the internet after revealing to the masses San Pedro Fish Market’s now world famous Seafood Super Tray, which received more than 30 million views online. The virality of this colossal seafood tray actually shut down freeway off-ramps into the Port of Long Beach, with “tens of thousands” of people making their way out to this legendary family-owned seafood eatery to try a Super Tray of their own.

Capitalizing on the success of the previous Super Tray, and to celebrate the premiere of Kings of Fi$h Season 3, FOODBEAST and Corona invited some friends and family to the San Pedro Fish Market for a special event — the unveiling of a new Super Tray XXXL.

Weighing in at more than 100 pounds, the Super Tray XXXL broke nearly every neck in attendance on the crowded water-front patio. Stacked to the brim with lobsters, crab, along with more than 10 different types of locally caught seafood and seasoned to perfection with San Pedro Fish Market’s signature spices, the XXXL Tray is a sight to behold for anyone with a formidable appetite. The Super Tray XXXL is the equivalent of a golf-cart stuffed with seafood, ready to knock out 18 holes of hunger in one trip.

This overflowing tub of seafood is literally rolled to your table and includes large shell shrimp, black mussels, Dungeness crab, halibut, calamari, large sea scallops and East Coast whole Maine Lobster. This massive feast also features tomato, onion, peppers, red potatoes, and warm loaves of the market’s famous garlic bread. To put things into perspective, this behemoth can easily feed between 80 to 100 people.

So, if you and 100 of your closest friends think you can put a dent in one of the most insane seafood platters ever, you better let San Pedro Fish Market know you’re coming. The new Super Tray XXXL will run you minimally $1200, and depending on the fish, can cost over $3000 (like ours did). Mike Ungaro, Principal of San Pedro Fish Market explained that there’s a bit of preparation time to ensure availability for a platter of this size.

If you’re looking to feed an army, the restaurant recommends calling at least three days ahead of time so they can gather the perfect tray of fish, as well as add any modifications and special requests that need to be accommodated.

Summer has just begun, which means there’s plenty of time to get the seafood squad together for some Super Tray XXXL savagery. So, start sending out your invites, and prepare for long summer nights at San Pedro Fish Market with the Super Tray XXXL, Corona Extra on draft, and perfect views of the water.
