WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (August 16, 2013) – Tin Fish, a neighborhood seafood spot located at 118 S. Clematis Street in downtown West Palm Beach, has unveiled a revamped menu featuring new lower-calorie options to complement its signature lightly breaded & deep fried fish platters, tacos, crab cakes, corn chowder, and more. New items focus on fresh, grilled fish that still offer bold flavor at a lower calorie count.
Guests can easily identify Tin Fish’s healthy dishes by looking for the Tin Fish icon branded with a heart at each Healthy Choice item on the restaurant’s menu boards. The menu now includes items such as grilled salmon, mahi-mahi, shrimp, tilapia and chicken on slaw. Each is cooked with the perfect amount of olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper and a squeeze of lemon. Tin Fish’s homemade, low-calorie slaw is the product of a nearly 30-year old recipe created by Tin Fish founder Joseph Melluso during the popularity of the Scarsdale diet, which uses white vinegar and onion instead of mayonnaise.
“We are grateful that guests consider our fried fish among the best in the area, however we have recognized our guests dining habits at Tin Fish are evolving,” said Andy Noonan, co-owner of the Clematis Street location, “Over the last year our grilled dishes have accounted for a larger portion of sales, and there is a growing demand for additional lower calorie menu options to complement our current offerings.”
Tin Fish’s expanded salad options include seared Ahi tuna and a catch of the day. All house salads each are served with chopped tomatoes, mandarin orange segments, toasted almonds, with a Tin Fish balsamic vinaigrette.
Tin Fish will also offer a lower-fat version of several varieties of its award winning fish tacos. Each grilled fish taco will feature three ounces of grilled protein, such as mahi-mahi, scallops, shrimp, and salmon, topped with fresh classic salsa, chopped cilantro finished with a squeeze of lemon juice. By removing the cheese and ranch dressing from Tin Fish’s original recipe, Tin Fish’s grilled fish tacos will range from only 110 – 290 calories.
“Our focus on healthier dining, with a handful of well-tested signature recipes is already making the locals happy, from the runners to the downtown professionals who patronize us during lunch or dinner”, said Noonan, “It’s been rewarding to see.”
Tin Fish is open 11 a.m. – 9 p.m. Sunday – Wednesday, and 11 a.m. – 10 p.m. Thursday – Saturday. The casual eatery also runs Top of the Fish, aptly named for its convenient location above Tin Fish, which features an impressive selection of handcrafted cocktails and nightly drink specials.
