Before fishermen discovered the edibility of fish, they used each catch as bait for larger species, hoping in the end to hook the biggest fish of all—friendship. Catch on with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $25 worth of seafood and fried fare at El Amin’s Fish House.
El Amin’s Fish House crisps up freshly prepared fried seafood and chicken—but no sea chicken—in hearty platters, sandwiches, and value meals. Fish dinners sink hunger with three-quarter-pound fish fillets in four varieties, such as whiting ($8.99) or tilapia ($9.99), available fried with sides of fries, hush puppies, and slaw, or baked with sides of green beans and corn. The noble sandwich gets a stately upgrade with choices that include the shrimp po boy ($6.89) or the chicken-tender sandwich ($5.29), each of which arrives blanketed in mayo, lettuce, and tomato with a side of fries, a medium drink, and personal thank-you letter from the bread. Sharable delights include catfish nuggets ($7.95 for 1 lb.) and chicken nuggets ($4.29 for 12), either of which further demonstrates that sharing truly means caring, no matter how painful it is.
