Florida is the fishing capital of the world. It’s no surprise thanks to 2, 276 miles of tidal shoreline, 10,550 miles of rivers, and 7,700 lakes. But I think what makes it a fisherman’s paradise is the diversity of species within all those habitats.
I’ve been making variations of this for over 12 years. I first made it in the hand-me-down oven our friends gave us to replace the one with the hole rusted in the side so we didn’t burn down our house.
Bubba Gump taught us there are endless ways to cook shrimp.
