Florida Keys Reel Seafood Recipe, Pickled Key West Pink Shrimp

Stretching more than 100 miles into the open ocean, the Florida Keys can boast early settlers ranging from Bahamian fishermen to Cuban cigar makers and New England merchants. In such a rich melting pot, it’s natural that the indigenous cuisine came to incorporate diverse and delicious influences – with a reliance on an abundant array of fish and seafood harvested from surrounding waters.

Among Florida Keys seafood favorites are Key West pink shrimp, a delicacy generally considered sweeter than other crustaceans. Key West pinks rank among the most popular of the Keys’ “natural resources.”
