Sea Salt Fish and Sushi pleases with stunning traditional fish and chips as well as a delectable selection of Japanese inspired delights and the latest craze to hit Melbourne… sushi doughnuts!
We loved tasting our way through Sea Salt Fish's menu.
To start we enjoyed Sea Salt's sashimi platter. An impressive selection of raw seafood including oysters, salmon, tuna, kingfish, mackerel and roe - each wonderfully fresh and delightful to eat with the accompanying sauces and the essential soy and wasabi condiments.
Next up was Sea Salt Fish and Sushi's pretty-as-a-picture sushi doughnuts. These sushi roll shaped like a donut thing may be the newest craze when it comes to sushi-creations but it's good looks are backed by a ton of flavour. Seafood is used to dress moist sushi rice atop layers of crunchy wonton skin and nori. The soft shell crab sushi donut was our top pick. We loved the beautifully crispy and juicy soft shell crab. The deep fried crustacean pieces were coated in a semi-thick crisp batter that encapsulated firm, sweet flesh which went beautifully with the umami-laden toppings and rice.
For something heartier and absolutely perfect for the lowering Melbourne temperature, there is the hot platter. Think battered flake, calamari rings, grilled lobster tail, scallops, whitebait, juicy grilled prawns, a ton of mussels over a bed of potato rings. This plate has everything and is perfect for seafood lovers.
The best part about Sea Salt is that everything tastes exceedingly fresh and is prepared with care and respect for the ingredients. Visit to jump on the sushi doughnut band wagon or simply to have some well-prepared delicious seafood. You'll be sorted either way.
