    Smoked tuna dip is one of my favorite things to eat in summer. Whose tuna dip is the best and why?

    Destin Ice. Just because. :lol:

    I am pretty sure it's what they used to serve at D&K's.

    I like Goatfeathers and Cocoons (creamier) - depends on the mood, I suspect.

    Goatfeather's Seafood Market in Seagrove. Usually one of the first places we stop when we arrive. Smoked Tuna Dip, Steamed Shrimp and Crackers from Goatfeather's. Our first meal in SoWal for many years running now. :wave:

    Hammerhead Fred's PCB. Not too much mayo - just creamy enough with a great smokey taste. Generous serving size too. Enough for two couples to share and have plenty. Served with fresh tortilla chips & jalapenos on the side for those who like a little "kick". We try to have some every time we are in the vicinity of Hammerhead's in PCB.

    Louis Louis, just the right amount of smokey flavor and plenty of it.

    Cocoons. Destin Ice is fantastic, but five minute drive to Seagrove v. 40 minutes each way to Destin Ice? Not worth it.

    Best Smoked Tuna is at Grayton Corner

    Grayton Corner market - the little deli counter inside. Paul uses real tuna and smokes it himself. Outstanding. Sells it to go in little tubs.

    I think I just drooled. I'll be in Destin for a week then Seagrove for a week so I'll have to give Destin Ice's dip a try. I liked Goatfeathers pretty well, loved their remoulade! Never had the dip at Cocoons but everything else I've ever had there has been yummy. Looking forward to trying Grayton Stores. I loved D&K's shrimp dip, I loved everything at D&K's!! I'm really looking forward to trying Louis Louis!

    We are not allowed to travel to Texas to see our son without bringing some of Cocoon's tuna dip! Lots of reasons why we all love it. The spice mixture and texture is just right. You can buy it in a variety of sizes. It mixes well with other dips if you are having a party.
