5 Things You Need To Eat This Week – Seafood Bonanza

Welcome to 5 Things You Need to Eat This Week, a column that highlights some of the most delicious dishes and some of the coolest locations to dine in Dallas and Collin counties.

At the moment, I am unsure if this will be a weekly column, or if I will just post at random – after I have I’ve enjoyed some amazing food in an equally amazing atmosphere.

As always, if you have a dish or location suggestion for me, please use the contact form to let me know.

Now, let’s dig in…

Where: High Fives – Dallas
What: Fried Hot Catfish Sandwich – fried catfish, hot sauce and coleslaw on a white bun

This just might be the best fish sandwich you will ever eat. Why?! Because the fish is hot, crispy, and they keep the toppings simple. Bottom line, this sandwich is so good! It’s everything that I love in a fish sandwich. And I think you will love it too.

Where: The Grill on the Alley – Dallas, at Galleria Dallas
What: Sea Scallops – Pan-seared on smoked carrot puree with roasted vegetables

You can never go wrong with giant sea scallops. Super tender sea scallops are served with a delicious smoked carrot puree. You can pair the sea scallops with any side on the menu, but I suggest the roasted vegetables because they keep the dish balanced and light.

Where: Blue Sushi Sake Grill – Preston Hollow
What: Tuna Tower – sesame-marinated tuna, spicy crab, avocado, sushi rice, black tobiko

Where: Water Grill Dallas – Uptown
What: Atlantic Cod Fish Tacos – Beer battered cod served on two corn tortillas, topped with red cabbage and onion

If you haven’t visited Water Grill Dallas to try their new, amazing happy hour menu, you are truly missing out. These fish tacos are on it. In one order you get two, large fish tacos…bring a friend to share! (Don’t kill me, I can’t recall the sauce on the tacos…but if you like fish tacos, you will love these. Trust me!)

Where: Steel Restaurant & Lounge – Dallas
What: Miso Poke Tuna – Ahi tuna marinated in traditional poke sauce, sushi rice, wasabi, heirloom cherry tomatoes, mango, hearts on fire, micro greens, mixed peppers, togarashi, served in a cold bowl

This dish is so fresh and light, I suggest this as a lunch request or a dinner appetizer. It’s slightly savory, very fruity, and perfect on a summer night.
