Fish recipes needed

  • b

I feel like I make fish the same way every week and need some new, interesting and quick (under 30 minutes) ways to make it. I would recipes for everyday fish like salmon, cod and flounder.

  1. not sure what you've tried already, but i love to cook fish in foil packets in the oven. you can vary the ingredients to make it as simple or complex as you like.

    for instance, you can do an asian-style thing with a combination of ginger, chili, cilantro, lime, soy sauce, fish sauce, scallion...this works really well with white fishes.

    for salmon, i usually do salt, pepper, and lemon slices, sometimes dill sometimes not. but i've also had good results with tomatoes and indian spices.

    very quick, simple, and easy to clean up, too.

      Along the 'packet' lines - try wrapping soaking a filet in a marinade of your choice(I usually do something Asian) in moistened rice paper and pan saute until the rice paper is browned. The fish is steamed and moist and the rice paper crunchy.

      Serve with some more of the marinade and some rice or a cold noodel salad

    2. have you tried crusting fish? there's a great recipe on for an almond crusted salmon with lemon leek cream sauce.

      1. Here's a link to one of our favorite salmon recipes...Honey Ginger salmon from Epicurious (if you try the recipe, line your pan with foil first)...haven't made it in a long time though as I refuse to buy the farm-raised salmon and this year, the wild salmon is $22 per pound!!!! I don't understand it because I thought it was 'in season' May thru Sept...oh, well.


        1. This is from organic style- the wasabi butter is really great. I cook in a non-stick without the oil and think it turns out really well. It looks great too. Cook it rare!!


          1. My son's favorite fish dish (he invented the variation when he was five) - works with bluefish, cod, flounder:
            place in baking dish, coat with mayo, dijon mustard (plus variation - sprinkle on bread crumbs). Bake. Easy. Good.

              I do this for salmon occasionally- just the dijon mustard. It's very good.
