Ok so this time I have to tell the truth and admit we didn’t originally find Shrimp Basket in Destin. We dined at the Shrimp Basket in Gulf Shores for years when we had a rental there. The boys loved the fried baskets and I always order the blackened shrimp tacos. Trust me on this one! When we came back to Destin we were thrilled to find Shrimp Basket had opened during our hiatus.
The baskets are full of seafood, coleslaw, and a side item. Nobody does coleslaw like Shrimp Basket. As you can guess from the name – there is shrimp in the coleslaw! What a tasty sweet surprise. This year I was happy to find that Shrimp Basket had added Blue Chair Bay Rum to their drink menu. Of course, I had to try one! Did not disappoint. I also ventured out and ordered the coconut shrimp rather than the blackened shrimp tacos – YUMMY!!
Shrimp Basket in Destin is off the beaten path just a bit. During the hot weather you can dine outside under the misters – just a fun way to cool off.
