Good Taste: Off the Hook

Award-winning flavor in seafood and more



Jumbo shrimp and grits

 

You might be a pretty good cook … but when’s the last time you won $10k in the kitchen? The Harris family of OKC brought home the cash this March by winning an episode of The Food Network’s “Family Food Showdown.” Their good news is also great for metro diners, because we can give their cooking a try anytime: They’re the proprietors of Off the Hook Seafood & More.

While the spotlight is nice, the food was and is worth a trip anyway – especially if you’re a fan of soft-shell crab po’ boys, or a huge, steaming mound of cheese grits smothered in lobster cream sauce and topped with grilled shrimp. I agree with Loneisha Harris that an especially excellent pick is the Blackened Chicken Fries, a dish her son Daymon created “so the menu wouldn’t be all seafood.” Chicken, cheese, bacon and onions piled on a heap of fries and smothered in spicy ranch and sriracha, it’s the kind of dish that will tempt you to take another bite or two regardless of whether you’re already full.

Over the last five years, the Harris family has gone from just starting out in a food truck to serving up their seafood-centric treats in two brick-and-mortar locations, so hustle has not been in short supply, and their skills in the kitchen speak for themselves. If you haven’t visited them at 125 W Britton or 1920 S Meridian, stop by to congratulate them and try some spicy goodness – but don’t be surprised if you get hooked.
