Although the majority of seafood is available year round, that doesn’t mean it’s always at its peak. If you opt for a summery fish in December, it’s very possible that it’ll lack in flavor and size. Seafood is too yummy and healthy to cut out of your diet during the winter months, so we’ve taken the liberty of exploring the best seafood choices to make until spring comes back around!
Salmon’s a Sure Thing
Whether there’s snow on the ground or it’s 90 degrees and sunny, salmon is a safe bet for any meal. Salmon has its place as a comfort food or a healthy go-to, and that’s exactly why we love it so much. This fish is packed with the good stuff, like Omega-3s. Another bonus? It’s crazy easy to cook.

Say Yes to Seafood Stew
…or any soup, for that matter. The absolute best comfort food to beat these chilly temperatures is a hot bowl of hearty soup. The great thing about seafood stew is you can throw just about any fish in it and it’ll taste amazing, so this is a great choice for beginners in the kitchen. But the best place to bet a good bowl of stew is at the Fish Camp, of course!
Here’s what we’re talking about: Rick’s All Day Seafood Soup
Shellfish? Heck Yes!
There’s a little lore that shellfish should only be eaten in months with the letter “R” in the name. If we go by that rule, the months of September through April (which includes all the winter months) are a safe bet for oysters, mussels and clams. Whether this theory comes from the red tide levels during certain months or spawning season, all we know is that shellfish fits perfectly into a winter appetite.

Seafood Pasta Please!
Mmmm! We can’t think of anything better when it’s chilly outside than a rich pasta paired with fresh caught seafood. Lucky for you, we’ve got it on the menu. Our pasta dish always includes seafood that’s seasonal in Florida, and you can definitely taste the difference.
It’s just too good to resist: Spicy Seafood Linguini with Garlic, Tomato and Parsley
And for the Grand Finale…
Shrimp has a place at the table pretty much any day of the year, but shrimp and grits has a place in our bellies during the winter! It’s perfectly hearty, fresh and comforting. We hate to brag, but it’s the best version of the popular dish we’ve ever had (and our loyal customers definitely agree!)
Alas, we saved the best for last: Fish Camp Shrimp and Creamy Grits with White Wine Butter Sauce
The winter is meant to be spent cozied up with hot comfort food and a nice cocktail. Well look at that, Julington Creek Fish Camp has both! And, of course, we only serve the freshest seafood possible. We can’t wait to see you over the next couple months.
