Bone Fish Grill, Swimming with the Fishes Pt 2- NJ

Back in part 1, I told you all about my Imperial Tilapia, White Truffle Mac and Cheese and Sautéed Spinach. In this post please allow me to round out the rest of the meal. The theme of the day is light, flaky and fresh, so prepare your mental taste buds.

We started with the Maryland Crab Cake appetizer. These hit the spot. They were light, flaky and Fresh to the extreme. The seasoning was perfect and the remoulade sauce added just the right something extra. These were absolutely worth the trip alone.

I’m giving the co-appetizer of the day award to the Thai Coconut Shrimp. Jumbo, coconut breaded shrimp glazed with a Thai chile have. Perfectly sweet glaze, killer crunchy breading, and shrimp cooked by the gods, I really can’t decide whether the shrimp or crab cakes were my favorite. So I won’t. Tie. Deal.

Next up was this mouthful of an entre – Pecan Parmesan Crusted Rainbow Trout. Theme adherent, it was light, flaky and fresh as hell. Flavor was in abundance and I dare any non-fish eater to try it and remain the same. This fish paired perfectly with their Garlic Whipped Potatoes. These were light, airy, garlicky and delicious. It was at this point that I realized that Bonefish‘s glasses were leaning to the right. I didn’t ask any questions.

To cap off the meal we ordered Jen’s Jamaican Coconut Pie with extra whipped cream. It’s a warm coconut custard with a rum sauce that is the perfect “light” dessert after a masterful fish entre. The rum sauce was a little too “rummy” for me so they brought me a caramel sauce instead that I think should be a permanent fixture on any coconut pie. Needless to say, I expect to have the itis for at least 2 days.
