Dish of the Day: Coyote Blues Fresh Mexican Grill's ceviche
Coyote Blues Fresh Mexican Grill serves up a traditional ceviche appetizer for the dish of the day.
Coyote Blues prides itself on fresh Mexican food, and ceviche is the epitome of fresh and lthat ight south-of-the-border taste. Coyote Blues marinates shrimps and scallops in citrus juice, which cures the seafood without cooking it, and then tosses it with pico de gallo, lump crabmeat and diced avocado for $9.49. Eat it alone or with some of Coyote Blues’ tortilla chips. Mention EatLafayette and receive a free spicy beef taquitos appetizer with purchase of an entrée.
