Paella Cooked Outdoors on the Dock at Coconuts in Fort Lauderdale

Paella sure is delicious -- but it can be a pain in the hoo-ha to cook because it requires a lot of ingredients, fresh seafood, fairly long simmering time, and is traditionally made over an outdoor fire. So when someone mentions they're firing up the paella pan, take note!

On Tuesdays and Fridays, the chefs at Coconuts gather out on the dock, where

they whip up a steaming pot of goodness with chicken, pork, chorizo, mussels, lobster tail, shrimp, and the catch of the day.

The cost is $28 per person, and they start serving it at 6:30 p.m. If you go on Tuesday, bottles of wine are half off.
