Glenn Lindgren: You'd think with Miami being so close to the ocean there would be a great seafood restaurant on every corner. For a city this size, you'd expect a lot more seafood restaurants.
Jorge Castillo: Some of the freshest seafood in Miami is about as far as you can get from the ocean.
Raúl Musibay: You'll find very decent fish dishes at small, out-of-the-way places like the Bahamas Fish Market and Restaurant.
Jorge Castillo: There is nothing fancy at this place. However, if you stick to the fresh fish you'll enjoy a good meal at a very reasonable price.
Raúl Musibay: Bahamas Fish Market and Restaurant has three locations in Miami.
Glenn Lindgren: Start your meal out with the smoked fish dip. You get a very generous serving of a tasty dish that is almost addictive. The dip is served with common saltine crackers.
Raúl Musibay: Another good starter is the "dedos de dorado" or dolphin fingers. These are long thick slices of dolphin filet lightly breaded and deep fried.
Jorge Castillo: I personally love the huevas de dorado, or dolphin eggs. Basically it's the entire egg sack and eggs of the fish breaded and deep fried.
Raúl Musibay: The escabeche, pickled kingfish, is also very good. Served cold it also make a great appetizer. In fact, we often go to Bahamas Fish and just order appetizers for dinner!
Glenn Lindgren: They sell several varieties of fish priced by the pound. You can have the fish prepared just the way you like it and you know that you are getting exactly what you pay for.
Jorge Castillo: You can have your fish filleted and either broiled or fried.
Raúl Musibay: They also do the whole fish deep fried as in pargo entero frito, a whole red snapper fried crispy on the outside.
Glenn Lindgren: The shrimp are usually quite good here. You can have them several ways, including in garlic, or enchilado style in either a tomato-based or green sauce.
Jorge Castillo: This is a true fish market with the fish displayed on ice in the back of the restaurant..
Raúl Musibay: You can even buy fish and seafood here to take home and cook yourself..
