Friday Favorite: Seafood

March 9th, 2012

I love seafood! Sadly, it’s difficult to find good seafood/fish here in NE Ohio. Sure I can find good seafood if I drive to Cleveland, but that’s an hour and half each way. We often end up in locations with local seafood when we travel so I eat up when we do. While we were in Florida that was the case, particularly in Key West. Our first night in Key West the friendly folks at the campground recommended Hogfish Bar & Grill; it was quite good!

Back when I requested suggestions for our trip to Florida, one of you recommended Blue Heaven. We ate dinner there on Tuesday night and enjoyed it as well. Mr Chiots got a fresh Florida lobster tail and we ended our meal with classic Key Lime. Pie.

One of the things I’m super excited about with our plans to move to Maine is the seafood. I can’t wait to buy fresh local seafood at the local farmer’s market. We’ve already looked into clamming regulations and would love to learn how to do it. I don’t have a particular kind of seafood that’s my favorite, I pretty much love any kind of fish & seafood, especially those that taste of the sea. Freshwater fish is welcome on my plate anytime too!

Is fish/seafood welcome on your plate or would you rather stick to something else?
