Salt Creek Grille-El Segundo

There are several Salt Creek Grille locations, but the one I frequent is in El Segundo, at the end of a small shopping center on PCH. It's a perfect stop with easy parking, calm outdoor patio with artificial grass, and a pond full of happy fat koi. They offer several meat options even though I only ordered the fish dishes.

The House salad for $8 could be a small light meal in and of itself with blue cheese, walnuts, apple, and greens that provide a contrast of textures and flavors.
The ahi tuna stack for $19 is a very generous serving of ahi, but I found it difficult to eat with the provided chopsticks since the slices of both ahi and avocado were so thick. 
I was glad to find the grilled shrimp skewer had a nice char and the shrimp weren't overcooked, so if you want something light this fits the bill.
The fried calamari appetizer was crisp and fragrant with rosemary, needing only the juice of the grilled lemon. I was disappointed by the lack of tentacles (my favorite part) but I understand they cater to the prevailing American preferences.
The Chilean Sea Bass priced at the market price of $42 was deftly cooked and served with a very buttery side of mashed potatoes, broccoli and carrots.
The stuffed king salmon at $32, served with the same sides as the sea bass, was a very generous serving, easily enough to share if your appetite is as small as mine!
Salt Creek Grille can be your reward after a long day of shopping, conveniently located in the same shopping center :)
