Paul and Barb's New Discovery

"What do you want to have for dinner tonight?" 
"Let's check out that seafood market on Tamiami Trail."
"Great idea, Paul!"

That discussion brought us yesterday afternoon to the South Venice Seafood Market. How could it be we had yet to visit this establishment? We learned they have been open less than a year and so last winter when we were here, they did not exist. 

I hope they are successful as they have great fresh fish and seafood. They told us they sometimes get freshly caught fish delivered twice a day. You can buy cooked takeout, too. Yesterday was blue crab day.

We chose a nice serving of Triple Tail to take home and grill. I always want to know what I'm eating, so here's a picture.

One can understand why it received its name.

We brushed a little olive oil on the fillet and seasoned it with a little Florida Seasoned Pepper from Penzey's before we placed it on the grill.

And, we had a glass of wine while we prepared a pineapple/mango salsa to accompany the fish.

I must admit, it was EXTREMELY excellent.

With this seafood market and a fruit and vegetable stand between us and the beach, I see the beginning of a trend. Maybe Paul will stop requesting steak so often! Talk to you soon.

Yum! That looks fantastic. The mango looks so dark, what variety is that?

We will have to check it out, will find out from you just where it is. Evidently they don't advertise. Pictures look delicious.

Will you stop making ND look so unappealing? Jeez. I'm ready to pack my bags and head south. By the way, Zuel has a interview with the counseling dept @ NDSU in March, so our FL trip is now officially off the books. Boo for us, hooray for Zuel!

Wow. Looks delish, as usual when coming from your kitchen! Shopping at markets is awesome!! I wish that approach to grocery shopping was more common in the states like it over here...

That looks delicious. I would almost give up eating steaks just to have fresh fish to eat.

Fresh fish - and grilled veggies! Looks awesome!
