Prawn Coastal is hidden at the corner on Miller and Hugus Alley (One Colorado Courtyard). They are popular for their fresh seafood dishes cooked in tilting steam kettles which is a cooking process that expedites simmering that renders a full complex flavor. I can see this place become extremely popular during a cozy afternoon. The ambiance is very peaceful and great for get togethers or date night.
Here are some things we had.
Seattle Fish Stew - A heart stew of shrimp, squid, clams, mussels, salmon and bacon in a luscious lobster broth. This is served wit bacon rouille over rice.
Shrimp Butter Boil - Spicy shrimp, potatoes, corn, bacon and pickled onion simmered in a buttery lobster brother served over rice. This was very aromatic and the flavors of shellfish really hits you. That’s one of my favorite things about a shellfish broth.
Thai Lobster Roll - This is one of the sandwiches I know people come for aside from their shrimp and oyster roll. Chunks of maine lobster stewed in, you guessed it, lobster broth with roasted onions and potatoes, spicy coleslaw and bacon rouille on a soft roll. I picked their downtown home fried potatoes. SO good. They also give you an additional side of rouille so I was just dipping the fried potatoes in it.
