A week ago, I was in the Florida Keys enjoying dinners of locally-caught hogfish . Back home in Colorado, I headed straight to Westminster’s Big Mac and Little Lu’s Seafood Market & Grill to further indulge in the flaky white fish.
Hogfish, the delicious fish with an unfortunate name, is a delicacy of the Keys and a specialty of Big Mac and Little Lu’s. Co-owners Paul and Ashley Brock created their Key West-style grill and market to import the fresh catch they remember from Florida.
Among many other seafood dishes, the grill also offers another East Coast specialty: the classic lobster roll . Although Big Mac’s floppy toasted base doesn’t hold up like the buttery, griddled rolls at Steuben’s , the sandwich does arrive loaded with tender chunks of lobster. The side of hand-cut chips is a bonus.
Dessert tip: Don’t miss the sweet-tart key lime shot (pictured) with creamy pie layered in a tumbler and topped with whipped cream and toasted coconut.
