Sizzle fo’ shizzle

Seafood platter, India Palace

A new Indian restaurant has opened where there was previously a dearth—Rosemont. On its long menu, two orange-colored items stood out: The mango lassi smacks of fruity flavor, and the tandoori seafood platter ($15.95) sizzles with tumeric, chili powder and other bold spices. The salmon flaked apart with tenderness, the shrimp sopped up all that tandoori seasoning and the onions set it off with a bright lemony sourness. Order the platter with one of the fun-flavored naans (goat cheese, garlic and basil, chili cheese) for a memorable pairing. 8865 Folsom Boulevard in Rosemont; (916) 226-9188.
