I was fortunate enough to find a really excellent seafood market in the area, even thought its a solid 35-40 minutes away. What can I say, good fresh fish is worth a drive! Plus, we can’t forget the fact that its attached to a small beach and a tiki bar with great mojitos and a dozen oysters for $12.
While I was there buying happiness in the form of grouper and ahi tuna fresh off the boat, they walked in a tray of the most divinely-smelling salmon that I have ever laid nose on. They offered me some to try, saying that it was rubbed with brown sugar and maple syrup. It was glorious! They told me that it made a kick-ass breakfast sandwich, so I bought a piece to try. They weren’t lying. Dave was completely enamored, and his anticipation that had been building since the night before was satiated. We will certainly be returning home next time with way more.
p.s. Anyone in the Tampa Bay area should definitely check out I. C. Sharks in St. Pete. They had a truly impressive seafood selection, and all three of us had a great afternoon there!
