Your best fish recipes!

Hola!

I am looking for some ideas to cook fish other than fish with rice style. Any ideas?

I like to put salmon steak on a bed of onion in a aluminium paper with limon slices on top and spices. I close it and cook it in the over, it is delicious served with rice.

How do you prepare your fish and with what do you serve it?

Nil

Re: Your best fish recipes!

A very very simple salmon recipe:

1 tsp of honey, 1 tsp of English mustard, 2 tbsp of soya sauce: MIX

Brush it over salmon and cook it the way you like your salmon. I usually grill mine. Check salmon half way through cooking and lightly brush some of the mix again to ensure that it doesnt dry out. One more brush when it comes out of the oven and serve with roastmary potatoes.

Re: Your best fish recipes!

I love salmon. I sometimes marinate it in olive oil, rice vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar (yeah ), onion, sesame oil, some spices and refrigerate it for 1 or two hours. Then I bake it and serve it with Chinese-style rice.

Re: Your best fish recipes!

Simplicity rules:

Ingredients:
  • Ocean reef fish fillet.
  • Lemon
  • Butter
  • Parsely
  • Rice
  • Manarin leaves
(water)

tools:
  • Foil
  • Pan
  • Oven
  • Pot
  • knife

Take the fish and gently pan fry (skin side down) on a medium heat with butter in a fry pan.
slightly cut the soft side of the fish to allow the juices to marinate deeper in the fish.


Place lightly fried fish into a piece of aluminium foil and rest.


Heat equal parts Lemon juice and butter in the used fish pan.

Chop parsely, and add to the melted brew.

Pour the lemon, butter, parsley mix over the fish in the foil.

pull the foil around to seal the fish inside.


Oven bake for about 20mins at 180 degrees.

(meanwhile)

I cup rice, and 3 cups of water.
Bring the water to the boil and add rice.

CRUSH the mandarin leaves and add to the boiling water and rice (don't cut the leaves, they have to be removed).
Boil for 10mins.

remove the leaves and strain rice.
(madarin scented rice without the flavour).

Remove fish , add rice........ eat.



HOT TIP: ..... if the fish flesh pulls apart slightly it's cooked.... if not, cook for a bit longer.

Re: Your best fish recipes!

ok.. each to their own... I personally can't understand cooking salmon on a bed of onions.. the onions to my mind would overpower the fish.. that said, if you enjoy ok..

my fav. salmon recipe..
http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/fo...e-Glaze-106442

THAT being said.. you're living on the Mediterranean .. why cook salmon to begin with

sardines . boned, butterflied on the grill with tons of olive oil, garlic, oregano

monkfish... boned stuffed with roasted red pepper, pickled lemons ( roll in foil and bake

snapper baked served with a putanesca sauce ( tomato, olive, caper, anchovies...)

Re: Your best fish recipes!

I love Amritsari Macchi.

It's a battered fried fish done in Amritsar, Punjab. The special flavour is from the ajwain/caraway. It's really nice served with a spicy chutney as a starter or with a salad as a main course:

Ingredients:
8 fish fillets (white fish)
200 gms gram flour (besan)
1 tbsp garlic paste
1 tbsp ginger paste
1 tsp ajwain (bishops weed/caraway/carom seed)
1 tbsp red chili powder
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 egg
100 gms yogurt
oil for deep frying
Salt To Taste




Prep :
  • Clean, wash and cut fish into one and a half inch size cubes.
  • Apply salt, lime juice, ginger paste, garlic paste and red chilli powder.
  • Keep aside for 20 minutes.
  • Make a batter of gram flour, yogurt, egg, ajwain, salt and water.
  • Add marinated fish to the batter and keep it in there for 15 minutes.
  • Heat oil in a kadai/deep fat fryer and deep fry the fish till golden brown and crisp.
  • Serve amritsari macchi with lemon wedges and a spicy chutney

Re: Your best fish recipes!

Pasta with Lobster- indulgent but do it at home and its cheaper than going out for pizza

Kill the lobster, make a stock with the head. Chop the tail in the shell, sautee garlic, chill, tomato paste in good olive oil. Add the lobster pieces sautee for 2 minutes, add the part cooked pasta, the stock from the head, cook till pasta has finished cooking to al dente level and add only a little chopped parsley

Non Nom. better than my leftovers I had for lunch

Re: Your best fish recipes!

Wrap a salmon fillet in param ham then bake in the oven till cooked. Simple and delicious. You can very it by cutting a slit in the salmon and packing with some butter flavoured with herbs, lemon thyme is really nice.

My favorites:

Rachel Allen's fish pie (http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/sm...ewithhar_87808) - comfort food in the colder weather (I use any combo of fish)

Home made fish fingers:
Cut fish of your choice into finger sized pieces.
Coat in egg and then flour mixed with Parmesan and seasoning.
Shallow fry in a pan.

Serve with Jamie Oliver's dolled-up mayo (throw some onion, capers, gherkins, parsley, in a food processor then add lemon, mayo, seasoning)

Re: Your best fish recipes!

Fishpie: My Mothers favourite, now my daughter's favourite:
Use almost any fish - I like white sea fish, but tuna, salmon, smoked fish is also liked. Have also seen it in the UK with scallops and other nasty things added ( which I don't like) and once had a Portugese man borrow my kitchen to make a version that used soe sort of dried, salted sea fish.
Basically, make a white sauce, add grated cheese to it, then add the cooked fish bits. Boiled egg, potato, onions and anything else can also be added. Stick it in an oven dish, add more cheese or breadcrubs and butter dots on top, bake about 20 minutes.
