This bruschetta was pretty tasty! I liked the seafood and the shaved fennel was great. It made these bruschetta bright and fresh.

Soul Fish platter – Soul Fish Cafe

Soul Fish platter - Soul Fish Cafe
Fried catfish, shrimp, and crawfish served with hushpuppies and cucumber salad. $14.75
Soul Fish Cafe, Memphis TN

Omg, this was SO much fried food! I liked most of it, but the shrimp and crawfish were kinda dry. The hushpuppies were also kinda greasy. I’m glad I chose the cucumber salad for something more fresh to balance all the fried items. The fried catfish was probably the most decent part of this platter.

Voodoo pasta – Boscos Restaurant & Brewing Co.

Voodoo pasta - Boscos Restaurant & Brewing Co.
Blackened chicken, gulf shrimp, mixed peppers, fettuccine, spicy cajun cream sauce. $16
Boscos Restaurant & Brewing Co., Memphis TN

I liked this pasta, but I thought that there should’ve been more of the cream sauce. The pasta felt a little dry. I liked the rich flavor of the sauce. The chicken was good, but the shrimp was overcooked.

Boscos Restaurant & Brewing Co., Memphis TN

I liked this dish. The shrimp were a bit overcooked, but the sauce was SO tasty! It almost tasted like garlic shrimp tapas. Yum!

Yazoo catfish creole – BB King’s Blues Club

Yazoo catfish creole - BB King's Blues Club
Blackened imported catfish served over shrimp and crawfish rice and creole sauce, biscuit. $16.79
BB King’s Blues Club, Memphis TN

This dish was really flavorful and I liked that the creole sauce had a bit of a kick to it. The catfish, unfortunately, was on the dry side so that was disappointing. We were also seated at a horrible table even though the club wasn’t very full when we arrive and throughout our stay. #fail

Ecuadorian shrimp – La Cosecha Bar and Restaurant

Ecuadorian shrimp - La Cosecha Bar and Restaurant
Roasted corn, romesco, shishito peppers. $15
La Cosecha Bar and Restaurant, Paso Robles CA

Mmm, I loved the flavor of these shrimp – so good. But they were kinda on the small side so it was a lot of work for little reward, they were getting pretty dried out. I liked the romesco sauce with the shrimp though, and shishito peppers are always a good choice.
