Lucky Fins Seafood - Meridian, ID

How pumped do I look to be going out to eat seafood (at a non-chain restaurant...) with two of my most favorite cowboys?! Jets hat, check. Cheetah print shirt, check. Crazy face, check!

Luck Fins Seafood restaurant was located just about 15 minutes down the road from the Idaho Horse Park. We decided to make the drive on one of our easy nights off and judging by the initial popularity upon entering we were happy with our choice!

I started with the Roasted Poblano and jalapeno Cream Soup because doesn't the name just sound amazing? The rich soup had only a mild kick but was addicting spoonful by spoonful. A bowl is a heft portion of this heavy liquid but definitely worth the order.

Baked Oysters?! Yes, please! I read that they were served up with bacon and blue cheese, it intrigued me so I ordered them. When they say, "less is more..." in this case it was. All the ingredients masked the delicious, briny taste of the oyster. Who knew blue cheese or bacon could have ruined... anything?!

Entrees came out, first up Halibut. Beautifully cooked and served over rice with a cream sauce, spinach and tomato. It was nice, not great but a refreshingly honest meal.

Now how about some Mediterranean Mahi Mahi! Lots of flavor in this bad boy... artichoke, tomato, feta, red onion and perfectly cooked mahi mahi served also over a bed of rice.

We loved the freshness of the ingredients, the lively atmosphere and the company of course! A definite re-visit if we are ever back in town!
