SHRIMP SHACK IN THE FLORIDA KEYS

By
Education & Training with Performance Development Strategies

Last Friday we took a 3 hour drive from our home in Port St. Lucie to Islamorada in the Florida Keys.  I have never been to the Keys.

I love fresh shrimp which, surprisingly, I have a hard time finding in our part of Florida.  In Islamorada we found a local market with today's catch.  We bought several pounds to bring back home.  Then we asked the local chamber where we could get the best shrimp dinner.  They directed us to The Shrimp Shack.

The Shrimp ShackThe is no ordinary Shack.  It was featured in 2015 on "Drive Ins, Diners, and Dives." 

Guy loved their shrimp fritters and 'Senator' style local catch.  You can catch it on Food Network under the episode named "Smoke and Seafood."

 

Now if you are a business in Southern Florida and you would  like to grow I would be glad to talk to you.

Hi Grant Schneider,

It sounds like you found a shrimp gold mine!  I love the drive through the Keys. But beware of traffic speed traps!  My husband got nailed.

Grant,

How fun to have fresh shrimp!  We get those at certain times of the year when they are legal to fish, they are called spiny ridgeback shrimp.  We have to share them with the dolphins and whales that migrate through our channel.  /A

Always ask a few locals for recommendations for where to eat, they always know the right places to guide you towards.  It sounds like you are pleased with your visit to Shrimp Shack.

Hi Grant:

I am a big shrimp fan, especially grilled! Hope you are enjoying your time in Florida! I have only been to Islamorada myself and not the rest of the Keys - would love to visit Key West some day.

Hey there Grant, isn't this a great country when there are no hurricanes??
Personally, I love the red snapper you can get here.  Baked with lemon, olive oil and seasoned with oregano and other Greek secrets!!  Go to Tarpon Springs, if you haven't yet, and sit outside at Hellas.  They will filet the fish in front of you, and these guys are huge!!
