Florida seafood on menu for Rubio, Nelson



seafood.jpgThe Florida seafood industry is coming to Washington tomorrow to show that its shrimp and grouper are as good as ever, despite the bad publicity over the gulf oil spill.

Sen. Bill Nelson and Sen-elect Marco Rubio will attend an event at the Florida House, along with other members of the state's congressional delegation.

The event features three chefs preparing their signature creations. Chef Jim Shirley of the Fish House in Pensacola will prepare Grits a Ya Ya, chef Josh Butler, executive chef for the Florida Governor’s Mansion, will prepare Dog Island Grouper Sliders, and chef Dean James Max of 3030 Ocean and winner of the Great American Seafood Cook-off will prepare his Sebastian Inlet Clams BBLT.
