We're almost halfway through spring, which means summer's right around the corner! Since a little light seafood is perfect for getting us all beach-season ready, we've rounded up a few of our favorite SoCal fish dishes. Here are 6 in LA that you'll get along with swimmingly:
Sushi Tsujita offers an omakase-style menu, including unexpected choices like Madai (seabream), Hirame (fluke), Anago (saltwater eel), Sayori (halfbeak) and many more, using old-school techniques to preserve the flavors of the seafood.
Combining flavors of the earth and sea in one creamy dish, Petty Cash Taqueria dishes out a unique guacamole starter that delivers on its name — BOMB.COM — topped with Santa Barbara sea urchin and chicharrones (fried pork rinds).
A healthy lunch alternative, the Seafood Tacos at FOH are prepared with tempura fried cod or shrimp in a jicama (low-calorie vegetable root) wrap and can be topped with dips like pico de gallo or guacamole.
Offering plentiful fresh fish to pair with its antipasti and homemade pastas, Barrique delivers a Tartara di Tonno — ahi tuna tartare served with avocado, capers and balsamic essence (thickened balsamic vinegar).
