Your Choice of Preparation
After selecting your favorite fresh fish, we offer three preparation options for you to choose from: herb seared, Lowcountry, and blackened. Learn what makes each preparation style unique, and get ready to enjoy a flavor-packed meal:
When you choose to have your fish herb seared, it will be served over a bed of Hoppin’ John, also known as Carolina peas and rice. This is a traditional southern delicacy consisting of soft black-eyed peas, fluffy rice, onions, and crispy bacon. At Amen Street, we include tomatoes in this mixture, and your fish will also come with a side of crunchy pickle-fried okra and a southern green tomato vinaigrette.
A truly southern treat, the Lowcountry preparation gives you the option of having your fish served over a steaming bowl of creamy pimento cheese grits and smothered with a roasted shrimp gravy. We balance out these hearty items with the addition of crisp haricots verts, sweet corn, and a fresh green tomato chow-chow, which is an elevated relish.
You can expect more than your traditional blackened fish when you choose to have your meal prepared in this style at Amen Street. Your fish will be served over a savory Andouille sausage and crawfish jambalaya, griddled asparagus, and lightly topped with delicate smoked tomato butter.
