Dixie Fish Company has announced two new seafood items to its menu: a seafood boil and southern-style shrimp and grits. Dixie Fish Company, the award-winning restaurant on Fort Myers Beach, is known for its fresh seafood dishes and Florida-style southern cuisine.
Available Thursdays and Saturdays for a limited time, Dixie’s seafood boil is loaded with local shrimp, clams, snow crab, corn and potatoes in a deliciously seasoned broth. The dish was recently featured in “Florida’s Table,” a custom video series by VISIT FLORIDA and Emergent Media that promotes Florida’s dynamic culinary scene.
Newly added to the menu, the southern-style shrimp and grits includes a half-pound of jumbo shrimp sauteed with fresh chorizo, roasted corn and spinach. Available every day, it is served with Dixie’s special recipe “Olde Fashion” buttery grits with sweet red peppers and topped with crispy homemade fried julienne potatoes.
An original Florida fish house, Dixie Fish Company’s origins date back to 1937 when it was primarily a fish market. Today, the waterfront restaurant serves delicious, fresh food in an ideal location for guests to enjoy the beach atmosphere, complete with live music and picturesque views.
