30A Suites Boutique Hotel in Santa Rosa Beach.
Gulf Ceviche on a sunny afternoon

Enjoy The Local Seafood

We don’t know what it is about spending the day, lounging on the white sand beaches surrounded by lush tropical foliage and sparkling emerald waves, that creates a intense craving for a taste of our fresh, locally caught seafood.

At the beautiful, boutique hotel of 30-A Suites, we have a favorite way to prepare some of our local delicacies that is perfect in its simplicity and for serving on one of our hot summer afternoons.

Be sure to chill a bottle of white wine, we recommend a light Riesling or sparkling Asti Spumante, and spread out a blanket over our manicured lawns, under the shade of a magnolia tree or on your private patio, to watch the sun go down.

We hope you love this easy to make and easy to clean up dish, from our kitchen to yours:
