Those who know me know that one of my big complaints of living in the Miami area is the lack of fish markets... places that specialize in seafood where you can actually purchase a variety of fresh catch (and with the infinite number of fresh and saltwater ways here it's mind-boggling). After so many internet searches, I gave up. The closest thing I've found is a guy on the side of the dock down the road to Key Biscayne with 4 or 5 ice chests lined up... not exactly worth the lengthy drive.
After 4 years living here, I had the 'duh' moment to search fish markets in Fort Lauderdale (which is actually much closer to me and much more pleasant of a drive). One click pulled up quite a few. I plan to check these out over the next few months until I find a favorite. The first location, although close, was not overly promising. I did manage to get a few things, though... a box of oysters, bag of mussels, some yellowtail, and a handful of fresh shrimp.
There's nothing like shucking oysters in your own backyard and a cool sunny afternoon. Ming and I ate about 3 dozen and the rest went to grill prep. They were topped with lime, salt, parsley, scallion, and scoops of Florida avocado (given to us by our friends in Homestead). I let them ride slowly over mesquite smoke on the grill. Ming requested the addition of preserved ginger, and the flavor combination was complete...
We also let the mussels cook on the grill... san pei style (in a bath of soy, sesame oil, and rice wine) so that they could benefit from the smoke as well.
