Our freezer is full of Red Snapper that I caught last July off the coast of St. Augustine. It was vacuum sealed and frozen the night it was caught. Totally delicious, can't wait to get to our Villages home and grill some up out in our birdcage : )

I have gone into Sam's Club and many times have smelled fish when I entered the door. I think we know what that means.

I agree. Their Jumbo Shrimp is the best we've ever hand. Pricy but worth it.

Default Wild Caught Salmon

All I can say is if you like Atlantic Salmon with Teriyaki Sauce you can't beat Walmart's Sam's Choice Frozen Skinless Atlantic Salmon Portions, (24 oz $15.94) with P.F. Changs Teriyaki Sauce ($3.38) you'll really enjoy this. Try it by grilling over med heat 4 minutes a side. It's terrific.

You can’t go wrong at Lighthouse. They get their seafood directly from reputable sources and will be happy to tell you how to prepare it. They are more expensive but we’ll worth it.

Default Lighthouse Seafood on rt.466! The Best!

Wife & I have tried them all in our 17 years here in The Villages. Danny’s Seafood may not be the cheapest, but we feel it’s the best. You get what you pay for. Never smells fishy. Every thing in their coolers is fresh, although they can special order frozen fish. Wide variety of fresh fish.

Without a doubt, Light House on 466. This IS FRESH fish. Best here by far, and I'm from the North East. Danny does a great job
