South Florida is known for its sunny beaches, enviable real estate, unrivaled golf opportunities, and of course its ample selection of seafood. While our focus at Old Palm is usually on the golf, we appreciate a delicious plate of fresh seafood as much as the next Floridian. That’s why we’re sharing some of the best local options for those looking for a dish from the sea.
Staples on South Florida Seafood Menus
Open up any Palm Beach Gardens seafood menu, and there are bound to be plenty of options to choose from. Yet, there are a few selections that you’re sure to find at all of the top seafood restaurants — whether as a signature dish or the catch of the day. One of the most popular fish in the area (and yes, we mean the fish) is dolphin, also known as mahi mahi. This flavorful fish is just as good whether it’s grilled, blackened or served up on a sandwich.
Another great South Florida fish to dine on is the red snapper, which can be enjoyed broiled, blackened, or even fried. Also a frequent swimmer on the best seafood menus in the Palm Beaches are spotted seatrout, white sea bass, grouper, tripletail, and flounder.
When it comes to shellfish, the tail of a spiny lobster fresh out of the Atlantic Ocean is absolutely delicious. So much so, that even those who made the move to our sunny area from Maine will be impressed with its taste. Florida seafood menus also have plenty crustacea, from Key West pink shrimp, to fresh from the sea scallops, and during the busy season even stone crab claws.
