Have you Tried the New Menu Items at Tricky Fish Richardson?

That’s right: at Tricky Fish, we are keeping our menu fresh! We’re constantly changing it up - adding new recipes, offering unique chef specials, and concocting new handcrafted cocktails – just to keep things interesting. We never want you to feel like our menu is stale. It’s just one of the ways we strive to be the best new restaurant in Richardson.


So with that said, we’ve already added a few new menu items that we hope you enjoy!


Tricky Fish

While this menu item may not be new, we can now offer a new twist on the customer favorite! The traditional Tricky Fish comes with blackened tilapia, served with crawfish etouffee and Cajun dirty rice on the side. Now, in addition to the tilapia option, we are pleased to offer blackened salmon or redfish instead if you so desire. Hum…decisions…decisions….


Blackened Salmon

In addition to the Tricky Fish, you can get that same delicious blackened salmon flavor but with a totally different vibe. Our Blackened Salmon entrée substitutes the traditional Cajun sides for mango relish, dirty rice, and shishito peppers.


Grilled Salmon

You asked and we answered. Salmon has amazing health benefits – high in Omega-3s and can actually reverse high cholesterol numbers – so we’re excited to offer this lighter option on the menu. The grilled salmon comes with potato hash and shishito peppers.


Grilled Redfish

Another great grilled option on our new menu, the grilled redfish is served with a wilted spinach salad and fried onions.


Don’t forget to grab an ice old craft beer, glass of wine, or a handcrafted signature cocktail to accompany your meal!
