I just buy the cloves. Peel the skin off an throw it in the blender. If you can find a place to cut you a break on the fresh seafood, it is a lot cheaper than buyer LFS
food. I had a guy once just throw a shrimp, cod and scallops into a small container and charge me the cheapest price per lb. Only happened once though
I always love going up and telling them I want 2 shrimp 3-4 scallops and a small piece of white fish. Get some weird looks sometimes.
