Summer Menu Items At Lee Roy Selmon’s [Nibbles And Bits]

You might be the kind of person who doesn’t much care for rock shrimp, feta cheese, roasted red peppers, kalamata olives, plum tomatoes and fresh basil on a flatbread pizza.
I mean, you might be allergic to shellfish. Totally understandable.
Then again, if you don’t like that above combination, it might also mean that you’re dead. Or that your taste buds are. Because the flavor is pretty darn spectacular when they’re piled all together.
That Mediterranean shrimp flatbread is on the menu this summer at Lee Roy Selmon’s.
What’s that you say? Selmon’s is about down-home southern cooking?
Shhhhhh. Try not to move your lips. Just eat.
And while you’re at it, make sure you get something - be it ribs or steak or salmon - with the grilled “Sweet Sizzlin’ Corn” on the side, the one with chipotle mayo and cotija cheese on it.
Reminded me of esquite street food I had in Oaxaca a couple years ago:
The difference: Esquite uses lime mayo, epazote herb and some onion, among other things, after it’s cut from the cob and mixed in the cup.
Me? I dig eating off the cob. Reminds you that it’s summer, which was the whole point.
Hungry for more? How about some vanilla ice cream with Captain Crunch and Reese’s peanut butter chips? Selmon’s has that, too. Check it out in the photo gallery:
