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.Truluck’s2401 McKinney AvenueDallas, TX 75201(214) 220-2401trulucks.com/pages/dallas-texaswww.yelp.com/biz/trulucks-dallas-2CC-BY-SA-2.0/Flickr/Quinn
Nov 20 2014 01:33pmLearn to Cook with Kale with These Recipes
Kale is certainly having its moment in the spotlight, made popular because of its “superfood” status and its large amount of vitamins and nutrients. If you want to get on board with the kale trend but don’t know where to start, these healthy and delicious recipes will help.Rich Italian Sausage and Potato SoupThough many kale recipes seem like they’ll leave you feeling hungry, this rich and creamy soup certainly won’t. Its Italian seasonings give it a zesty taste, while the cream base makes it a warm comfort food for chilly days. Pieces of spicy sausage add protein without adding much fat, and the strips of kale become tender and soft when cooked in the hot broth.Garlic-Roasted KaleBecause kale is so thick and hearty, it makes a great side dish all on its own. This recipe roasts the kale until it’s soft on the inside and crunchy on the edges, with a delicious garlic taste that just about anyone will love.Chicken and Kale CasseroleThis chicken casserole may taste indulgent, but its low-fat ingredients and coarsely chopped kale make it a healthy take on the classic dinner dish. Because it serves up to 8 people, you can even turn your friends and family into kale enthusiasts when you serve it at your next dinner party.CC-BY-2.0/Flickr/jenny-pics
