PINKS!

THE SHRIMP SHACK GRILL AND AUTHENTIC FISH MARKET
6840 FRONT ST. KEY WEST (STOCK ISLAND) 305-294-33040

Y’all ready for the freshest seafood in key west?  The last best kept secret in the keys? The newest hush-hush, only known to locals, off the beaten track, completely chill, right next to the boats, bringing home the catch to the few, the chosen, the truly hip, the lucky dogs who are in the “know”?
Try the Shrimp Shack.  My good friend Ray runs the place.  Ray and the Sauce Boss go back 20 years.  After retiring from being GM at Margaritaville, he took over the chores of a little restaurant on the docks of Stock Island.  The Shrimp Shack gets the seafood from the fish market which is in the same location.  It has huge piles of right off the boat key west pinks, lobsters, snappers, mahi, tuna, oysters, clams, conch, mussels, squid, smoked fish, and fresh catch. (whatever’s coming off the boats at that moment)
This place is right on the docks.  Right next to the shrimp boats tied up to their moorings, with the charm and surly character of the wild and fiercely independent professional fishermen.  This is a part of key west which has sadly disappeared as condos, upscale eateries, and t-shirt shops have replaced the true character with sanitized imitations of the old key west, suitable for a cruise ship crowd.  I don”t know about you, but I would rather eat with the fleet.

Dining On The Docks

Shrimp Cocktail With Liquid Summer Datil Sauce
Boil or steam some of those key west pinks just long enough to be considered done. Do not over cook the shrimp. Mix a half a cup of ketchup with the juice of a lemon, 2 tbs of  Liquid Summer Datil Pepper Hot Sauce,  1 tbs horseradish,  and proceed to chow down.
