Enjoy Sustainable Seafood at Truluck’s in Dallas

January 21, 2015 12:03 pm

Elegance, sophistication, and a refined palate are the watchwords at Truluck's, an award-winning Dallas restaurant focused on sustainable seafood. The menu features dishes such as the sweet and spicy halibut served with lump crab, avocado, jalapenos, and a drizzle of sweet chili sauce. The dish of pan-seared sea scallops with a crab and tomato salad, Szechwan green beans, and a sweet tomato butter is another popular choice.

A meal here will reveal that crab is especially prominent on the menu, listed in forms that span a chilled crab claw platter and steamed whole crabs to crab fried rice. In fact, Truluck's is so committed to the quality and sustainability of its stone crab that it operates its own fisheries where it can control fishing practices and conditions. This also means the seafood served at Truluck's is very fresh, since it's shipped directly to the restaurant without going through a wholesaler or middleman.
