I went to Bonefish Grill for the first time ever last night, and, Oh. My. Gosh. Amazing. We used a $10 Gift to Bonefish Grill, and you can get one as well!
My oldest brother came up from central Arkansas last night to bring Mom and me presents from my family, catch up, and take us out to dinner. It was such a wonderful night – especially since Mom and I can’t travel together that often because of Mom’s dialysis schedule. And being a petsitter means I get no time off on holidays. So it’s great to see family during the holidays when we can.
My brother asked where we wanted to eat. I said “I happen to have this $10 coupon for Bonefish Grill that I’m writing for my blog!” The rest was history. Turns out brother LOVES Bonefish and doesn’t get to eat there that often because his wife is a strict vegetarian.
Mom and I had never been to Bonefish before. The ambiance was very lovely; at night the lights are low and it has the feeling of an intimate candlelit dinner. (It also makes it really hard to get good photos, FYI.) So at the recommendation of my brother, we ordered the Bang Bang Shrimp as an appetizer. And OMG. It was amazing.
The Bang Bang Shrimp is a bowl of grilled shrimp tossed in a creamy, spicy sauce. While I don’t have the recipe, I would compare the sauce to the spicy mayo you would get at a sushi bar. Grab a pair of chopsticks and dig in! This was amazing!!!!
For dinner, I chose the Sea Scallops and Shrimp with mango salsa on the side. The side vegetable of the evening was spaghetti squashed, slightly sweetened and with cinnamon. I’ve never had a sweet spaghetti squash, so it was very surprising and good. I also chose a side of herbed couscous.
As you’ll notice, the couscous isn’t normal couscous you would find in any grocery store, it’s pearl couscous, which is a different size, texture and has to be prepared differently. This couscous was in a pesto-type sauce and it was SO delicious; I would absolutely order it again.
It was AMAZING – and this season Bonefish has a lot of other dishes in its Winter Colossal Menu. Items like Lobster Stuffed Shrimp with a creamy lobster and shrimp Imperial stuffing, King Crab Legs (already cracked!), and Whole Grilled Mediterranean Branzino stuffed with citrus and served with a Mediterranean sofrito and arugula almond grains salad.
Check out Bonefish Grill’s Winter cocktails, including the Cold Snap Blackberry Frost served in a glass made entirely of ice, mixed with freshly muddled blackberries, blood orange liqueur, vodka and fresh lemon juice. There’s also the Winter White Cosmo, mixed with St. Germain Elderflower liqueur, white cranberry juice and fresh lime.
