Fresh Richardson Seafood – Get it at Tricky Fish!

Tricky Fish is known for a lot of things – great atmosphere, handcrafted cocktails, scratch kitchen cooking – but our roots are really in our fresh Richardson seafood.


Our philosophy is simple food with simple preparation methods – and you can’t beat the seafood! Here are several seafood entrees to try this week at Tricky Fish, located in CityLine of Richardson:


The Tricky Fish


Let’s start with our signature dish. It’s blackened tilapia, served with our signature dirty rice, and smothered in delicious crawfish etouffee. Would you rather have salmon or redfish? No problem. Simply tell your server and we’ll prepare our Tricky Fish the same way, just substituting the fish we prepare. It’s seafood you’re way and you’re sure to love it!


Grilled Salmon


Light, flaky – this grilled salmon has it all! We drizzle in a jalapeno Parmesan butter, and pair with potato hash and shishitos (sweet Asian peppers for those unfamiliar.)


Grilled Redfish


Our tender grilled redfish comes with a warm wilted spinach salad and fried onions. You’ll love the way the flavors compliment each other and create balance.


Blackened Salmon


Bringing in a Caribbean vibe, the blackened salmon comes with a delicious mango relish. But don’t worry, we don’t get too crazy because you still get our signature dirty rice and shishitos as well.


Lemon Pepper Shrimp Tacos


One of the most popular of our fresh Richardson seafood options, the shrimp tacos can’t be beat for lunch or dinner! Three tacos are included, each one laden in the cilantro cream sauce that makes them famous. Then enjoy either the French fries or our homemade slaw on the side and you’re got a perfect meal. Well, almost perfect – add a craft beer or cocktail to round out the meal.

At Tricky Fish, we love the simple, delicious flavors of the Gulf, and few tickle our taste buds like the taste of fresh, gulf shrimp. Our menu is stocked with some delicious shrimp dishes, perfect for a little seafood indulgence. And with National Shrimp Day fast approaching on May 10th, join Tricky Fish to take in one of these simple pleasures:


·     Peel & Eat Shrimp: Looking for the perfect after work pick-me-up or show stopping appetizer? Our Peel & Eat Shrimp will win the day! Juicy gulf shrimp are boiled to perfection, then served with our delicious cocktail sauce. You might need two orders!


·     Fried Shrimp Platter: Sometimes it’s hard to find good fried shrimp in Dallas, and we get it! That’s why Tricky Fish brings in the best of the Gulf of Mexico, then fries it up in our signature batter and serves it with fries, slaw, and your choice of tartar or cocktail sauce.


·     Shrimp Po’Boys: Just like they make in New Orleans! Tricky Fish’s fried shrimp po’boys come with lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, and a signature sauce. Pair that with a fresh baguette and it’s melt-in-your-mouth delicious!


·     Tillamook Mac N Cheese with Grilled Shrimp: One of our customer favorites here at our Richardson restaurant and bar is the Tillamook Cheddar Mac N Cheese. Creamy Tillamook takes the traditional mac n cheese up a notch, and layering grilled shrimp on top just adds to the decadence. Don’t forget to pair it with one of our craft beers or cocktails for the perfect meal.
