Ocean Market Seafood's fishermen cast their lines and nets in the sea every day to snag the fresh mahi-mahi, shrimp, and tuna that crowd the market's enormous display cases. Customers can fill bags or 28-gallon hats with spiny Florida lobster ($12.99/lb.), or line white platters with wild-caught red snapper ($7.99/lb.) and live blue crabs ($5.95/lb.) for patriotic feasts. Friendly staffers also pile lunch plates ($6.99+) to curb midday hunger, and oysters on the half shell ($8.50/dozen) make ideal hors d'oeuvres or platforms for Barbie-doll dioramas of The Birth of Venus.
Established in 1979, South Florida Kosher Meats, Inc., houses a considerable collection of kosher komestibles. Until April 6, the grocer is kosher for Passover and can provide you with all your Passover needs. Following Passover, the market will return to its regular offers. South Florida Kosher Meats specializes in kosher meats, such as 1.5 pounds of barbecue ribs (about $15.99) and 2 pounds of chicken wings (about $3.99), both of which will liven up the next High Holy Days pool party. For customers looking to make use of the rocket-powered shopping cart they received for their last birthday, the market also functions as a full grocery store, with items ranging from cookies ($0.89+) and couscous ($2.39+) to pizzas ($3.99+) and pie filling ($1.39+). Torah-toting turophiles may opt instead for kosher dairy products—including several cheeses from Israel—complemented with a selection from South Florida Kosher Meats, Inc.'s collection of more than 150 kosher wines, including wines from the grape mines of Israel, Italy, France, and Australia.
Captain Jim's Seafood serves ocean-fresh seafood year round, but a special item shows up on the menu from October to May. Those are the months when captains pull medium, large, jumbo, and even colossus-sized stone crab claws from the ocean. From there, it's just a short trip to Captain Jim's kitchen and the plates out in the dining room. But whether an order calls for crab claws or blackened mahi mahi, the restaurant lives up to its motto: "from our boats to your table." In fact, a glance at the Facebook page might even reveal photos of Captain Jim himself?smiling out on the ocean?with the day's catch and soon-to-be dinner right in his hand.
Back on land, chefs prep most of these fish entrees in one of three styles: grilled, blackened, or fried. They then plate the fish alongside hush puppies, saut?ed spinach, and steamed veggies. They might even incorporate the seafood into pasta or grits?or leave it behind entirely for "dry dock options" such as ribeye steak, key lime pie, or fish that were raised on land.
