Tricky Fish: Fresh Seafood that Can’t be Beat

If you’re looking for the best seafood in Richardson or Fort Worth, Texas, then look no further than Tricky Fish. We know, it seems an odd choice, but Southern comfort food with a coastal flare is our jam. It’s our sweet spot. We give you fresh Gulf coast cuisine, right here in the heart of North Texas. We use only the best suppliers to ensure quality and a freshness you can taste. Here are a few of our customers’ favorite seafood dishes, guaranteed fresh and delicious every time:

Kitchen Sink Gumbo

As the name implies, it’s everything but the kitchen sink, a gumbo loaded with allllll the good stuff. Fresh shrimp, fish, chicken, and andouille sausage with rice. Warms you to the core and perfect for this cold weekend coming up!

Gulf Oysters & Peel/Eat Shrimp

Both of these seafood platters are the perfect meal starters! The gulf oysters are guaranteed fresh year-round, thanks to suppliers who ensure quality even in the warmer months. And who can resist plump, juicy peel and eat shrimp? Order them by the dozen….and you’ll want at least two orders!

Salmon and Redfish

Salmon and redfish are two of our signature fish entrees here at Tricky Fish. Our chefs prepare them like you want ‘em – blackened or grilled – then serve with the perfect accompaniments. For example, the blackened salmon comes with an incredible fruit relish and the grilled redfish really comes to life with a wilted spinach salad and fried onions on the side.

The Tricky Fish

We leave you with our signature dish, the perfect combination of fresh Gulf seafood and Cajun cooking, all served with a gourmet flare. The dish comes with your choice of fresh blackened fish (choose between salmon, tilapia, or redfish), crawfish etouffee, and dirty rice.

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.
