Fantastic Fish Tacos in Dallas

Baja seems to be the best place to tag the origins of the fish taco. All my research points there, at least as far as North Americans are concerned. The true fact is somewhat murkier and no doubt flies back to the times of the original tortilla. You place between the fold with whatever you my have on hand. If that is a shard of beef, then it is a beef taco. For our early fishermen, it was the fish taco. Simple enough.

These special tacos are served at beach shacks as well as posh dining establishments, and the recipe continues to evolve. With choices ranging from grilled mahi mahi with tomatillo salsa to boiled lobster with chipotle lime butter, there really is something for everyone. The one thing that we all might agree on is that the best fish tacos are the ones eaten hot as you drip dry in the sun waiting for the next swell. Continue reading

Most varieties of gumbo are seasoned with a special mirepoix consisting of onions, bell pepper, and celery, or what they call the Holy Trinity. Today, most people are familiar with seafood gumbo and chicken and sausage gumbo.

Flying Fish is a Catch

The Flying Fish looks and feels like it has been in business since the post war era but in fact Shannon Wynne designed and opened his first casual seafood restaurant in Little Rock, Arkansas in 2002. The Flying Fish serves catfish, shrimp, oysters, crawfish and other seafood. Wynne expanded the restaurant throughout North Texas with locations in Addison, Dallas, Garland, Fort Worth, and Arlington. There is also a location in Memphis, Tennessee. All equally as tacky as the very first location in the land of Clinton’s, but so much more savory. Continue reading
