Not everything on this site needs to be exotic. Sometimes you want a simple, easy dish you can make on a Tuesday night after work. This is one of those recipes. Salmon and avocado are naturals together, and this salsa is basically a deconstructed guacamole.
Like ceviche or sashimi, this is a clean, Asian-style raw fish salad, a Hawaiian specialty.
Tripletail is a fish I’ve been chasing for years. I finally got one in Alabama recently, so I figured I had to cook it Southern style.
When you catch a big fish, don’t forget the “collar,” the meaty bit right behind the gills. Marinated and grilled, it is a spectacular part of the fish.
Pesce alla puttanesca, fish with harlot’s sauce. Delicious and easy to make – all the ingredients are pantry staples.
A recipe for spaghetti with anchovies, a take on the classic pasta con le sarde from Sardinia and Sicily. Any small fish works, though.
Blackened fish is so 1980s, I know, but I still love it. Here I use catfish, a Cajun staple, but you can blacken any fish sturdy enough for this ferocious cooking process. Blackened redfish is the classic example. Alongside the fish is Cajun succotash, called maque choux.
A Scandinavian take on fish chowder, this recipe uses a variety of fish and seafood, although any firm fish will work, along with a cool, optional ingredient: whey. Whey adds a bright tartness to the broth. This is such a great soup you’ll want to give it a go.
