Mariscos (the Spanish word for seafood/shellfish) is a classic type of Mexican food. Even in Tucson, you can experience the delicious flavors of the sea at Guadalajara’s Grill & Tequila Bar. We offer a wide selection of Mexican seafood to satisfy your cravings. Our dishes range from authentic to innovative, so you are sure to find something you love on our menu.
Here are some of the most popular types of mariscos dishes:
While the word mariscos includes shellfish and other seafood, it usually does not encompass fish. However, fish remains a prominent feature in Mexican cuisine and Guads offers a variety of fish dishes on our mariscos menu. Our Tilapia with Poblano Sauce, for example, includes a fresh cut of tilapia served with a creamy sauce with the flavors of poblano chilies. We also offer a traditional Ceviche Blanco which includes shrimp and fish marinated in lime and served over a tostada with tomato, onion, cucumber, and cilantro.
Fish tacos are another staple for Mexican restaurants. If you are craving seafood, you should try our Baja Fish or Shrimp Tacos. Choose between pan-fried fish or shrimp. These tacos come loaded with lettuce, grilled corn, shredded cheese, pico de gallo, and a hint of lemon juice.
Lobsters are common in the Pacific Ocean along the coast of Northern Mexico. Mariscos made with lobster is savory and decadent. At Guads, we offer a wide selection of dishes that feature lobster. Some of these make lobster the star, whereas others use it to highlight our other fresh ingredients.
One of our most unique offerings is our Lobster Enchiladas. These enchiladas include moist and delicious lobster pan-fried with chopped onion and garlic and are topped with our Diabla Blanca chipotle cream sauce. We also recommend our Lobster-Stuffed Salmon which allows you to enjoy both our signature salmon filet and our lobster. We top this dish with a cheesy queso sauce.
No mariscos menu would be complete without shrimp. This seafood is incredibly versatile and can be included in many different types of dishes. One of the most classic is our Camarones Panzon. This appetizer includes 6 juicy jumbo shrimp wrapped in bacon and served with a chipotle cream dipping sauce.
You can also make shrimp the main feature of your entree. We offer a classic Arroz con Camarones which has sautéed shrimp over delicious Spanish rice with enchilada sauce, melted cheese, and tortillas. A more adventurous option is our Fiesta Camarones! which is a plate of large shrimp sautéed with chorizo, diced onion, tomatoes, cilantro, and Anaheim chilies. We top this with a creamy and rich sauce and serve it over thinly sliced corn tortillas.
