Mexican Seafood and More: Tampico
Some friends were always telling me about the “Red Snapper a la Plancha” at Tampico. I happened to be in the area last week and stopped in to try some. I also had a “michelada” (Mexican cerveza made with beer, lime juice, and assorted sauces, spices, and peppers) — which is quite frankly the most perfectly chilled tomato-y , salty, beer concoction I have ever had. Yum.
My order came with shrimp but you have the option of other seafood and sides. The onions under the fish were amazingly seasoned and the shrimp cooked to perfection . The fish flaked with ease revealing the beautiful white flesh. It was steaming hot and juicy. My favorite part is always the tail, it’s super crispy and contains a ton of flavor from the spices. I go for that piece first.

I hear Tampico has some great seafood and that the Shrimp cocktail is like none other. I will have to get back there soon to provide you all with a full review.. This red snapper was simply too good not to share.
