Fish

There are so many varieties of fish it is hard to know where to start when wanting to prepare a delicious Fish meal. Salmon, Tilapia, Halibut, Tuna,Bass, Catfish, and many more. I love baked fish and fried fish. But a perfect pan-fried fillet of fish is a great dish too. Serve fish with rice, couscous, pasta, or many vegetables for a complete wholesome dish. Prepare a tuna sandwich or add some smoked salmon on top a bagel and cream cheese. We have Easy Fish Recipes with our helpful Photo Cooking Guide to instruct you in cooking a delicious Fish recipe!

Beer Battered Fish Tacos with a Spicy Cilantro Cream Sauce

FacebookPinterestStumbleUponGoogle+TumblrRedditShare


With the exception of Restaurant Month last month I have been a little MIA. Not just from this blog but from the kitchen too. Once I stopped putting up recipes regularly it became a lot more difficult to even do so once in a while. I was in a funk and I am thinking I may be out of it…maybe. We just moved into a little cute apartment, closer to the water and closer to town. When I say ‘little cute’ I actually mean ‘super small, help! I can’t move around in the kitchen’ apartment. Alas! Life goes on and I gotta start cooking again sometime. Fish Tacos was the way to go and get up out of my dry cooking spell. I love fish tacos and when we lived in Mexico DH and I really got addicted to fish tacos at a little joint in our town. The fish was fresh and served in warm flour tortillas. We used to go there for lunch at least twice a week but since we moved to Costa Rica we haven’t had fish tacos at all. I think this recipe may become a regular weekly thing for us now.

Delicious Rating: Fish Tacos have never tasted so good! The beer batter is not that super thick kind that tastes mushy half way through biting it but rather it really coats the fish and fries up nicely and stays crispy too. I used Tilapia fillets and loved their flavor but you can use any firm white fish you prefer. The cream sauce…OMGoodness. Like seriously, it is pretty the bomb. I kept eating it by itself. It is spicy and has a great cilantro flavor and complements the fish very well. I used corn tortillas and they were great but next time I think I will stick to flour. Just personal preference.

Costa Rican Fish & Chips

Sitting on the beach, relaxing to the sound of the waves crashing on shore, and eating, eating very well. That was our delightful experience in Tamarindo, Costa Rica. We ate at a beach front restaurant called Lola’s. It offers fresh seafood and simple dishes full of flavor. Fresh fish on the beach is always a great experience and this was no exception. The fish is Tilapia and was moist and flavorful with a delicious crispy batter that it was fried in. It came with a side of coleslaw and fries or ‘chips’. The fish is definitely the star of the show. Full of Costa Rican flavors, the batter stays crispy not getting soggy at all. Check out the easy recipe for this Costa Rican fish after the jump!

The Cheesecake Factory’s Miso Salmon

One of my favorite dishes at The Cheesecake Factory is the Miso Salmon. It is light, the fish is perfectly cooked, and you think you are eating something healthy from The Cheesecake Factory…think again! Nothing from that restaurant is very healthy but everything is delicious and really, isn’t that all that matters?

Every time we are visiting home The Cheesecake Factory is a must on our restaurant list. I always try to order something different on their huge menu or get my usual (cobb salad with blue cheese) and something else to take home. Well, this one time I tried the Miso Salmon. Yum! The salmon just falls apart at the touch of your fork and melts in your mouth. The miso glaze is sweet and yet perfectly balanced with umami that you just want that glaze and a spoon. The salmon sits on top a bed of jasmine rice and garnished with a few snow peas. A great dinner with a few more veggies or a light lunch that is easy to pack up for work and heat at the office. This easy recipe really duplicates the meal spot on, you will absolutely love it!

I used a ginger and garlic paste but if you use minced or chopped, just run the glaze through a food processor or blender once finished. Also, look for miso, soybean paste, in your grocer Asian aisle or at an Asian grocery store. I used 4 salmon fillets, about 6 ounces each and 1 inch thick.

Herb & Lemon Salmon

 One of my many diets included in my yo-yo dieting (another story, another blog) was a baked salmon diet. Everyday I would eat baked salmon. By itself, on bread, with rice, in salad, atop pasta. I never once got tired of it. I would literally just bake a salmon fillet and that would be that. Rarely would I add any spices or sauce to the salmon, I love the taste of salmon on its own. However, my DH hated it. Baked salmon is so boring to him, even if it is marinated or covered in the best possible herbs and sauces. Well, it has been awhile since my baked salmon diet but I decided to give it another try and use some lemons since they were in town.

Delicious Rating: Delicious! Baked salmon is an easy dinner recipe that can go with grains, veggies, or whatever you please. The basil in this recipe combines so well with the lemon and parsley, total yum factor. What did my DH think you ask? Well, he said it was good…and then said, “I just don’t like baked salmon.” Okay, I guess it isn’t for everybody. What about you?
