Life’s a balancing game. Cold weather and early sunsets tip dinner time craving scales toward hot, soul-soothing foods with crispy crusts, melt-in-your-mouth morsels and creamy sauces. Comfort foods call you to the dinner table. Busy days, however, demand high energy, lower calorie power lunches of grilled seafood, plentiful veggies and cool salads to avoid embarrassing post-lunch dozing.
The Big Ketch Saltwater Grill “Keep the Balance” menu, available for a limited time, graciously satisfies both needs. Each “Keep the Balance” low-cal lunch item surfaces at under 500 calories. Choose a grilled shrimp wrap with lettuce, cucumber, tomato, feta and tzatziki sauce served with a side house salad or side Caesar ($11.95); basil-Blue Moon mussels and clams with a side house salad or side Caesar ($10.95); or salmon, tuna, grouper or grilled chicken ($10.95-$17.95) and a choice of two sides -- grilled broccoli, green beans, side house salad or Caesar salad. A shrimp and crab salad plate boasts a healthy base of mixed greens along with yogurt aioli, tomatoes, eggs, cucumbers and white balsamic dressing ($11.95).
Luscious dinner dishes “Comfort Your Soul” with flavorful riches like cornmeal-crusted flounder, gnocchi, creamy clam sauce, wilted spinach and toasted almonds ($22.95); seafood pot pie well-schooled in lobster, shrimp, scallops and creamy seafood béchamel, topped with a garlic-Parmesan crumble ($23.95); and Maine lobster-stuffed ravioli with lobster-brandy cream sauce, diced tomatoes and scallions ($22.95).
