Seafood you'll crave after watching the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

We saw the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest last night. In this sequel the characters showed an ambiguity of morals (except for Orlando Bloom's William Turner, of course) that created good fights and dramatic tension in the movie.

The movie was as fun as the first one, and the special effects, especially for Captain Davey Jones and his crew, were seamless. Davey Jones' cursed crew are slowly turning into collections of sea creatures and, rather than scare or horrify me, it made me hungry. I shouldn't have seen it on an empty stomach. Here is the list of what I crave.

Stone Crab Claws - my favorite are in Key West in October when they are in season, yum! Go to the Half Shell Raw Bar to eat them.

Conch Fritters - best are at the Rusty Pelican on the Rickenbacker Causeway on Key Biscayne.

Fried Calamari - but the dipping sauce has to be perfect, I actually prefer a good marinara sauce, simple yet delicious. (calamari is squid, or maybe Kraken, but not octopus)

Mussels Fra Diavolo - because making a deal with Davy Jones is like dealing with the devil.
