Sorry to be contrary but neither floats my boat.

Cuban....I don't like pickles and yellow mustard on anything. Give me a soft-shell crab BLT...mmm!

Grouper...sandwich or fillet, I don't 'get' its popularity (or price!). I find the fish a tad coarse...have tried it numerous places, including with people having it at the same time who raved about it, so it's not like I haven't given it a fair chance. Prefer grilled salmon or seared tuna or spiced steamed shrimp any day. Heck, even deep fried catfish is tastier than grouper. I think it's all hype when it comes to grouper.

Try the Grouper cheeks at the Palm Pavillion in Clearwater Beach sometime.

You may become a convert yet.
