AZUL MARISCOS a beautiful example of how Mexican spices –
Mexican food has become defined by its more popular dishes – like guacamole and tacos – but Mexican food represents one of the most diverse and delicious cuisines in the world…and it goes way beyond avocado dip and folded tortillas. Fish and seafood, for instance, are huge in Mexico, and if you need further convincing on that point, sample one of Azul Mariscos spectacular preparations, such as the Diablo Shrimp, giant versions of the crustacean cooked in extra spicy chili sauce (you can, of course, ask the chef to dial down the heat a little for you).
There are some traditional and some more innovative fish and seafood selections at Azul Mariscos. From the traditional side, there’s a whole flash-fried red snapper prepared in the style of Veracruz, with roasted tomato, green olive, caper, onion and jalapeno, as well as langoustines cooked in butter-garlic sauce, the kind you might encounter on the beaches of Acapulco. Some of the more innovative dishes include the grilled fresh caught Atlantic salmon with a tequila-honey glaze and the stuffed pineapple, the grilled fruit filled with lobster, octopus, and shrimp in a creamy chipotle sauce.
