It is apparently common knowledge that Ted Peters is THE place for smoked mullet in Tampa Bay. However, I live in Tampa and I am almost always too busy to make it over to St. Pete. Is there any decent smoked mullet on my side of the bay?
And while I have your attention... I'm craving a good old fashioned seafood shack - the kind that deep fries a bunch of fish and seafood and serves it with no frills but is fantastic because the fish is so fresh. Usually these places are literally right on the water where fishing boats come in. I've found gems like this in Charleston, SC, Annapolis, MD, and other bayside places and it seems that Tampa ought to have one, but I don't know where to go. Any ideas? Rick's on the River sucks.
Thanks for the help!
