The wood-grilled fresh fish experts at Bonefish Grill are sailing into summer with the launch of a new seasonal menu. It features delights like fresh, hand-cut simply grilled Wild Salmon, Rockfish with Citrus Aioli + Shrimp topping and Dayboat Scallops — sushi grade George’s Bank scallops on a bed of creamy corn risotto topped with crispy bacon, lemon butter drizzle and green beans.
Coming off of a trip from Maine, my wife and I were ready for another delicious fish dinner and we wanted to catch up with the Des Moines Brewster and his wife to show him pictures and tell them how great Kennebunkport, ME was.
To start off the night, we had some refreshing drinks. I had the fresh watermelon martini: hand-muddled watermelon, house-infused English cucumber and Fris vodka infusion, fresh sour, garnished with frozen watermelon cubes
I thought it was a little too watery and probably wouldn’t order it again. The drink we did find really delicious was their mint mojito. The joke of the night was “Men that Mojito.” 🙂 These were so refreshing, and they came in pretty large wine glasses.
We also strategically went on a Wednesday. If you didn’t know, Bang Bang Shrimp is half price (dine-in and to-go). It’s one of our favorite appetizers to start the night and can be a great quick meal to-go if you don’t feel like eating out.
I had just come back from a trip to Maine and fresh seafood was still on my mind. I’ve never had a craving for seafood like I did while I was visiting Maine and I was worried about getting my fix when I came back into town. I knew, though, that Bonefish would be able to provide me some tasty options. The entree that I ordered was something that definitely satisfied my craving.
I had ordered their seasonal special – Fresh Rockfish & Shrimp – $21.9
Wood-grilled Rockfish, lightly blackened and topped with three jumbo shrimp and a fresh citrus aioli.
Oh my goodness, was this delicious or what. Rockfish is a lean fish and have a mild, sweet flavor with a nutty accent. The citrus aioli paired nicely with the flavor profile and provided a nice little kick of spice.
My sides included potatoes potatoes au gratin and french green beans.
By the end of the night, there was absolutely no room left for dessert. Usually I can muster up some strength when a dessert is placed in front of me but that night – there was no chance of even getting one more drink of water down. Between fresh, delicious, bread and dipping oils to bang bang shrimp and a delicious entree it was one fun and full night.
I can’t recommend Bonefish Grill enough. They are one of my favorite restaurants out in West Des Moines. You can read up on previous visit to Bonefish Grill here and here
