from cool ceviche to fried fish

In a county swimming with fresh seafood options, finding a restaurant to enjoy a daily-catch dish during the Lenten season (and beyond) is often easier than finding a parking space.

Here are five restaurants for delicious fish:

Arigato Ceviche

… for the ceviche, of course

At Ceviche Arigato, a variety of authentic Peruvian ceviches.

Indeed, one must try the ceviche at Ceviche Arigato, Lake Park’s go-to restaurant for authentic Peruvian dishes. The question is: Which one of the nearly one dozen types of ceviche? A good place to start is the Ceviche de Pescado ($16), fresh fish marinated simply with lime. If you prefer a bit more kick, try the ceviche with Peruvian yellow pepper sauce (ají amarillo) or red rocoto pepper sauce, $19 each. For a taste of the restaurant’s Peruvian-Japanese fusion, try the Ceviche Arigato, which is marinated with lime, soy sauce and a bit of mustard and served with wasabi and avocado, $15.

PB Catch

… for the Chilean sea bass

Chef Aaron Black’s pan-seared Chilean sea bass at PB Catch in Palm Beach is as lovely on the palate as it is to behold. He serves the fillet topped with glazed baby carrot and beech mushroom over caramelized brussels sprouts in a delicate broth ($55).

At Hibiscus Steatery, staffer McKayla Cadden reads the counter and cafe before opening hour.  The cozy spot is part of the Little Moir's family of eateries in Jupiter.

Hibiscus Steatery

… for the daily catch

This neighborhood gem, part of Jupiter chef/restaurateur Mike Moir’s family of seafood-loving restaurants, is both a fish market and small eatery. Hibiscus Steatery pays homage to freshly caught fish – as one might expect from Food Shack’s sister restaurant. The menu is written daily. The fresh-catch fish is cleaned onsite and sold in pan-ready portions at the retail counter, which also offers Hibiscus Steatery’s house-mixed spices.

But you can dine here as well. Expect nicely seasoned fish served with homemade condiments such as tangy pickles, spicy melon salad and flavorful aioli.
