The wild caught shrimp is great for the Florida Keys restaurant industry. Royal red shrimp are the less common local species of shrimp prized for their scarlet color and rich salty-sweet taste. It's most often served peel and eat, just mix up the sauces. Shrimp are delicious sweet, meaty, and fresh. Look for daily specials on menus at seafood restaurants and at Eaton Street Seafood Market. We like the Seafood Quesadilla recipe with Grilled shrimp, scallops, flour tortillas, roasted green chili sauce, scallions, jack cheese, pineapple salsa, sour cream & guacamole.
