Dixie Crossroads

We were invited to come eat at this seafood restaurant. I didn’t know what to expect other than the fact that they serve seafood.

APPARENTLY, I have been missing out! I have lived in Florida almost my whole life and never have I heard about this place.

Let me just say that they have shed the light on me on the many different kinds of shrimps and the many different ways to eat them. When they were explaining everything…it almost felt like a scene from Forest Gump with Bubba Gump talking about the different recipes for shrimp! I was overwhelmed by shrimp information but that did not discourage me from diving right into the many wonders of shrimp!

Here is what we had:

Corn Fritters, Royal Red Shrimp, White Shrimp, Brown Shrimp, Bacon wrapped Shrimp, Fried shrimp, Broiled shrimp, Steamed Shrimp, Coconut Shrimp, Shrimp Chowder, Broiled Mullet, Broiled Scallops, and then the most famous of them all

ROCK SHRIMP… broiled!

They start you off with some corn fritters with powder sugar. WOW, pretty good but don’t fall into the trap of eating too many of those because it will fill you up! It is really tasty and it is hard to stop at just one.

Then we had a sample platter of the different styles of shrimp and then we order the Indian River Combo which came with Mullet, Scallops, and Rock Shrimp. Everything on the platter was locally caught! My thoughts were, “WOW this actually came from Florida?”

Unbelievable… I can understand why Rock shrimp is so famous. It is interesting looking and MEGA YUMMO! If someone asked me what is your favorite food, I am going to tell them… ROCK SHRIMP. It is seriously has a savory sweet taste that can be pretty addicting. It is really simple to get into the meat of the shrimp. I was advised by my server said that broiled is the best way to taste the rock shrimp. It really does enhances the unique flavor of the shrimp. The only complaint I have is that… I SHOULD HAVE ORDERED MORE! But I was just so stuffed from the corn fritters, shrimp sample platter, shrimp soup, and cheese grits.

Everyone is wondering…. Did you like it?

Yes! This place has made it on one of MEGA YUMMO’s favorite places to eat. This is a family oriented place, it is really large but quaint with a touch of southern hospitality. This is the place you go to after spending the day at the Space Center with your family or the place you go to after you spend the day at the local beaches or the place you go to when you are really craving for some sweet delicious rock shrimp.

The next time we go kayaking, we are going to go over in Titusville just so I have a reason to stop in for some seafood. Who says Florida does not have good seafood… apparently the ones that have never been to Dixie Crossroads.
