#3 Shrimp

Florida shrimp cocktail with spicy horseradish – celery salt – cocktail sauce

The shrimp grow over time in warm, nutrient-rich waters of the Gulf of Mexico and South Atlantic Ocean. Wild American shrimp are harvested from a natural environment free from harsh chemicals, pesticides, antibiotics, and residue. This allows the shrimp to absorb a better taste, texture, and overall quality. The Wild American Shrimp industry is sustainable and naturally renewable and chockfull of pride from the American shrimpers who look to pass this profession onto future generations.

Wild Florida Shrimp are harvested in the height of the season, so they taste better. They have a sweet flavor, with a firm, and slightly crunchy texture. When raw their shells are green/blue/gray tints but turn pink when cooked. They are a bit more expensive and can be harder to find at grocery stores. The flavor and texture of these shrimp are unbeatable, so make sure to treat yourself this Lenten season.

#5 Lobster

Maine Lobster roll with celery – mayo – Old Bay – New England style roll

Lobsters have been caught for consumption since the nineteenth century. Prior to this it believed lobsters were larger in size and lived much longer than they do now. Magellan noted these seafood delicacies were as thick as “molasses” in parts of coastal water explored in the old Massachusetts territory, which he extensively traveled.

Lobster tails, a very unique tasting treat that may be enjoyed by themselves or accompanied with a steak or crab legs.  The very sweetest and most delicious part of the lobster is the tail. This is also where the largest portion of meat can be found. Properly cooked lobster meat is white colored and has an elastic consistency. Serve with melted butter, stuffed with crab or simply Old Bay to enhance the great flavor. Tails are a true seafood delicacy that is unique in its flavor and taste.
