Sesame Crusted Seared Tuna

I really don’t care for tuna.  Mainly because my exposure to it has been limited to the stuff in a can which is just…blah.  But I’ve gotten into lots of different kind of fish this year and when I saw yellow fin tuna steaks on sale at the grocery, I picked them up.  Of course […]

Walnut Crusted Tilapia

Nut crusted fish is something you often see on the menus of swanky restaurants.  I’ve never tried making it before but it’s just as easy as breading fish in anything else and it makes a gorgeous presentation.  This is definitely a company meal because they’ll think you slaved.  Given the price of nuts, this isn’t […]

Orange-Tamari Glazed Salmon

I have wanted to glaze salmon forever.  But it seemed like every time I tried, the glaze just slid right off the fish.  Well there are these things called directions.  It kinda helps when you look ’em up.  The secret, apparently, is cornstarch.  The end result was a flavorful fish with just the right amount […]

Chili Rubbed Salmon

I love salmon.  It’s not hubby’s favorite fish, but I think it may be mine.  It’s chock full of Omega-3 fatty acids, which are great for you, and is such a variable fish.  This go round, I decided to rub it with ancho chili powder and pan sear it.  The end result was a fabulous […]

Blackened Tilapia

Last week we had blackened potato wedges using this blackening spice mix from All Recipes.  Of course it made way more blackening spice than we needed just for the potato wedges, so my next dish to use it was some straight up blackened tilapia.  I love tilapia.  It’s a lovely, mild fish, cheap and easily […]

Potato Crusted Tilapia

The search for a good, crunchy breading for baked fish continues this week with something I never in a million years would have thought to use as breading: ye humble potato flakes.  But I got into a discussion with some other gluten free folks on Twitter the other day and someone mentioned this.  I admit, […]

Parmesan Crusted Tilapia

I saw this on the menu of a restaurant where we had dinner the other night and thought it sounded delicious.  It was definitely a nice variation on my usual baked tilapia, and the breading (what stayed on the fish–DON’T FORGET THE COOKING SPRAY) was quite crispy and delicious.  Serves 2. Ingredients: 4 tilapia filets […]

Salmon Croquettes

One of my childhood favorite foods (which is still a favorite) are my mom’s Salmon Croquettes.  It’s an inexpensive dish that uses canned salmon.  But hers are fried and we all know that I’m into the healthy.  I’ve tried various options…baking them in muffin cups, which wasn’t bad, but just didn’t quite do it for […]

Smoked Catfish and Creamy Dill Sauce

For this weekend’s round robin cookout, hubby decided to do some smoked catfish as some different and lighter fare than the brisket and pork butts we’ve been enjoying.  We were all a little bit skeptical, but hubby found this recipe on the Food Network, and we set to work.  As the catfish you buy in […]
