The lockdown has got everyone sick of eating the same old food at home. And with restaurants slowly opening up while following FDA-approved guidelines, it’s time to put your apron away and treat yourself to a delicious seafood dine-in!
Whether you’re planning a visit to the Sunshine State or are a resident, it would be almost sinful not to indulge in some scrumptious seafood. We’ve compiled a list of seafood dishes that you have to try when you stop by Tampa Bay.
Nothing satiates a seafood craving like tacos! When you find yourself in a city with fresh seafood at your disposal, you have to give shrimp tacos a try.
Mix up the tangy flavor of the lime-soaked shrimps with some creamy fresh greens like avocado and coleslaw to give it an all-round blend of flavors which balance each other out.
Make sure to grab a friend or two to accompany you, since good conversations can enhance the flavor of any dish!
Stuffed Devil Crabs
When in Tampa, do as the Tampanians do! Devil crabs are a local favorite—and for good reason.
The bite-sized crab dish is ideal if you want a snack to munch on while you explore the city, or to enjoy with a refreshing drink after a long day. Fried to crispy golden perfection, the inside is filled with fresh crab and flavorful herbs. The filling melts in your mouth and will have you reaching for more.
We wouldn’t recommend leaving Tampa Bay without getting your hands on devil crabs.
A gift from Latin America to the rest of the world, empanadas are too delicious a meal to pass up. And it looks like the people of Tampa have added their flair to the dish by introducing crab filled empanadas!
Let your taste palate mingle with the old and the new by trying out flavored crab empanadas. Deep-fried until it reaches a golden and flaky outer texture, these empanadas bring a modern twist with their juicy and fresh crab flavoring. You can grab them as a treat while you head on down to the beach.
Make sure to buy them from a fresh seafood restaurant, since the frozen goods take out all the flavor and charm this delicious dish has to offer.
