Shrimp dishes worth checking out on LI

Shrimp is by far the most popular seafood in America. Because of its neutral flavor, the shellfish appeals to a broad cross-section of people and works well in countless preparations.

Here are three restaurants on Long Island serving shrimp dishes worth seeking out:

ABEETZA NEXT DOOR

Angry shrimp, a popular item at this fine Italian newcomer, features plump shellfish in a fiery marinara sauce. You can get it over house-made pasta or -- a house specialty -- over zucchini "noodles" that are actually raw zucchini ribbons briefly sauteed.

82 Glen Cove Rd., Greenvale, 516-484-3123, abeetza.com

MAVI GRILL & DELI

This attractive Turkish spot serves a standout shrimp sandwich featuring chargrilled spiced shellfish stuffed into a pita with lettuce, tomato and yogurt sauce.

749 Mount Sinai-Coram Rd., Mount Sinai, 631-509-4866

BISCUITS & BARBEQUE

A Southern favorite, shrimp and grits is an option worth ordering at this Southern-Cajun-BBQ spot in a vintage diner. Plump blackened shellfish are drizzled with barbecue sauce and served on a pillow of buttery grits.

106 E. Second St., Mineola, 516-493-9797
