Long Beach Fish Grill: A Secret Worth Keeping
2010-06-07 · By Chandra Clewley
There are times when you just aren’t sure if you should share something with other people or not. For me, this is one of those times. You see, a long time ago, I stumbled on Long Beach Fish Grill, and it became a standard in my life. Since then, I eat it about once a week. My fiancé eats it at least twice a week.
The beauty of Long Beach Fish Grill is that it turns out wonderfully fresh and delicious fish in 20 minutes, with hardly a wait, fabulous service for under $20. It is such a coup, that you can become somewhat addicted to it, as we have.
I typically order the same thing, each time I go, and it is always too much food, so I have half of it leftover for the next day’s lunch. There are several types of fish you can order including: Salmon, Trout, Ahi Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Halibut, Swordfish and more. There are 3 types of seasonings that you can add, if you choose not to have your fish plain, and those include: Garlic Butter, Cajun and Teriyaki. There are also several sides, like Grilled Zucchini, Grilled Asparagus, Fries and more. In addition there are fish tacos, fried combos, clam chowder and several other options on the menu besides just fish filets.
My preference is the Salmon, Cajun style with brown rice. Sometimes I will add a side of Grilled Zucchini to the order. When you order the salmon, you get two perfectly cooked filets with a rich but not spicy Cajun flavor and a certain crispness that I have tried to emulate to no avail. Of course, the dish also comes with coleslaw which I am completely addicted to, and a piece of garlic bread that I shouldn’t be eating. It’s a good thing they don’t give you the entire loaf, I would devour it.
There are times when the person I go with gets the same thing, but this time we tried the Halibut which, at $15.95, is the highest priced item on the menu. We thought we would try it out. The halibut was delicious as well, and for the seasoning, we tried the Garlic Butter.
