Salt Traders Coastal Cooking

 

One of my most frequently asked question is, “where do I go for fresh seafood?” “You don’t. We live in Austin, nowhere near the ocean,” is that what I would say. Recently I dined at Salt Traders Coastal Cooking in Round Rock and I’m excited to announce we have an option for good seafood in Austin!

Salt Traders is by the group behind Jack Allen’s Kitchen offering the best of land and sea in a relaxing coastal vibe. Drawing its name from salt, a commodity deeply ingrained in history and the most crucial ingredient to cooking, the menu comes stacked with craveable, flavorful dishes and refreshing coastal-inspired drinks.

 

Crudo

CRUDO

Start the meal with the crudo – cured fish and fresh herbs. We had the salmon tataki with a wakame (sweet seaweed salad) with sesame seed dressing and over an Asian noodle bed with a dollop of spicy mayo.

 

Chowder Fries

CHOWDA FRIES

Yes, you read that right. Salt Traders serves up french fries with chowder, clams, leeks, and bacon. Be warned, it’s a huge portion so share with the table.

 

Oysters

GULF OYSTERS + SCALLOPS

Comes with mignonette, cocktail sauce, fresh horseradish, and saltines. $11 for half dozen and $18 for one dozen. The scallops are available on the half shell every day!

 

Grilled salmon

SIMPLE GRILLED FISH

Grilled Atlantic char with sun-dried tomato rice, broccolini, and white wine butter. You can choose from three different fish options.

 

Shrimp + Lobster Salad

LOBSTER & SHRIMP SNOBB SALAD

Want seafood and a salad? Try the lobster & Shrimp snobb salad. It comes with Maine lobster and shrimp on fresh greens, sweet corn, egg, avocado, bacon, tomato with sherry mustard vinaigrette.

 

Coconut Mousse

COCONUT MOUSSE

You can’t leave Salt Traders without dessert so order the coconut mousse!
