BEST PRE-MADE KEBABS: Shaner’s Land and Sea Market

When skewering is just too much work, the men and women at Shaner’s are there to make your kebab dreams come true. The store’s 15 varieties are made fresh daily, and range from seafood to lamb to beef. Most have some veggies thrown into the mix, including, if you’re lucky, a few slices of what may be the greatest onions ever known to man. But it’s the veggie-less, bacon-wrapped scallop kebab that wins best of the best. They’re like M&Ms — literally melting in your mouth — but with bacon. Mmmmmmm … bacon. 2000 Pass-A-Grille Way, St. Pete Beach, 727-367-4292.
