Try Lena's Seafood in Silver Springs, just east of Ocala yet? We usually get a Full Fried Scallop Plate, a Half Fried Shrimp and Half Fried Haddock Plate, as well as a Whole-Belly Clam plate! Add some Fried Lobster Bites and Clam Strips … just can’t go wrong. It's worth the splurge for sure, the portions are huge!

I love a good Gyro and The Gyro Hut in Ocala certainly does not disappoint! The classic gyro is awesome; freshly marinated and sliced off the spit and wrapped with lettuce, tomatoes, onions and some awesome tatziki sauce.

One of my all-time favorite Florida recipes, especially if the gator meat is fresh and from a clean local freshwater lake. My mother used to make the best fried gator tail which I'll have to locate that recipe. If you are visiting Florida and have not had a good basket of locally-grown Fried Alligator Tail, you are missing out!
