Rockfish at Jumeirah Al Naseem has just launched a revamped menu with delicious new additions. Special plates on the menu include a scallop carpaccio with avruga caviar and sour cream, my favourite dish which was a King crab salad with avocado purée topped with chives and espelette peppers, and delicious King crab legs, flavoured with lime, chives, crunchy fennel and maltaise sauce. Some new main dish items include their signature Rockfish dish, made with crunchy vegetables and a flavourful gribiche sauce. A must try dessert is the citrus cheesecake, made with cheese foam, lemon meringue and crispy tuile. The best part about Rockfish, apart from the delectable food, is the venue’s location right at the waterfront. Seafood dinner with a sea breeze. Perfect way to spend the evening.

French cuisine is based largely on seasonal foods, and since it’s spring time, it’s time for a change to the menu. The menu kicks off with new options of sharing starters like fresh gulf tuna tartar with kumquat and zucchini puree, Atlantic octopus salad with pickled onions and grilled capsicum, and Obsiblue prawn marinated in candied lime. For the daring diner, there is the traditional treat of French snails in a crispy puff pastry.
