Cason, my mom, and I have been in Pensacola, FL for a week now and we are getting our fill of seafood! One of the many reasons we vacation in Pensacola is because of Joe Patti’s Seafood Market. We love going out just as much as the next person but there is nothing better than picking up fresh seafood and trying out different recipes. So far we’ve fixed crab cakes, low country boil, fried shrimp, shrimp tacos and everything has been amazing! We’ve also been trying out different appetizers but our recipe for shrimp salsa remains a family favorite. My aunt made this for a family gathering several years ago and we all loved it so much, we’ve been making it ever since! It’s so refreshing and not too heavy. If you’ve got an event coming up and need an appetizer idea, you’ve got to try it- it’s super easy and all your guests will love it!
