The shrimp at Mr. Catfish are traditionally breaded, tempura-light, and grease-free, they taste like the ocean they came from, not like an oil spill. The side salad is garnished with a succulent, red, ripe tomato slice. Its cool crispness perfectly complements the shrimp. (Yes, it’s iceberg, but perfectly fresh.) Order the hushpuppies as your second side. You’ll hit all the food groups that way. You’ll also attain perfect shrimp nirvana. G’head, reward yourself.
