Battle of the Dishes

Dive-ing for Decent Shrimp at Knock Kneed Lobster and King's Fish House

Phoenix isn't exactly the first place I think of when I want fresh fish. But there's one fish dish that's I've found to be consistently decent here, perhaps owing to the fact that it's deep-fried: popcorn shrimp. It's a great little starter, the perfect appetizer to kick off a good seafood meal (or make you forget the rest of a bad one).

For this week's Battle of the Dishes, we went in search of seafood joints known for their popcorn shrimp.
