im in the panhandle
i dunno what to tell you
we have seafood, fish fries and oyster shacks. barbeque and usual "southern fare" this is what i think of hwne i think of local food. soft shell crabs, fried mullet.
i wouldnt know except local ingredients are oranges, limes and pecans.
maybe some roasted red peppers would be nice
definitely some kind of mayo/sour cream/yogurt blend to make it creamy.
i think "fire" roasted tomatoes red peppers and onion go well with smoked fish.
i searched for "smoked fish dip" as well as the word "florida" in google and found these, all in connection with flrida and their "famous" (i didnt know) fish dips
