Whole Grilled Fish With Olive-Tomato Compote

Serious Eats Daniel Gritzer Post a comment

Grilling may be one of my favorite ways to cook a whole fish—the intense direct heat does wonders for the skin, crisping it up while the coals below impart a delicious flavor to the fish itself. Granted, it's not quite as easy as just tossing a whole fish in the oven, but a few key steps will guarantee it comes out perfect every time. More

Salmon Banh Mi From 'Vibrant Food'

Serious Eats Maggie Mariolis 1 comment

Kimberley Hasselbrink's eye-catching bahn mi from her new cookbook, Vibrant Food is super-appealing: she uses fish-sauce-marinated salmon instead of traditional pork, which lightens the sandwich while still providing a touch of fatty richness. It's a sandwich I can see myself making many more times this summer. More

Whole Roasted Fish With Oregano, Parsley, and Lemon

Serious Eats Daniel Gritzer 5 comments

Whole roasted fish is one of the easiest, most delicious ways to cook fish. Cooked on the bone and in its skin, the meat remains even more tender and juicy than fillets or steaks do. Here, we soak the fish briefly in a salt-water brine to wash and lightly season it, then stuff the cavity with aromatic herbs, garlic, ginger, and lemon. Feel free to use any other fresh herbs and other aromatics you want. More

In this variation on Kung Pao chicken, firm white-fleshed fish such as catfish or tillapia is marinated with soy sauce and white pepper, then deep fried until golden. Afterwards, it's stir-fried with classic Sichuan flavors: spicy dried chilies, mouth-numbing Sichuan peppercorns, and garlic. More

Peruvian-Style Flounder Ceviche From 'The New Southern Table'

Serious Eats Kate Williams Post a comment

At first, I wasn't really sure what to do with the sweet potato slices that accompany Brys Stephens's Peruvian-style ceviche in his cookbook, The New Southern Table. They didn't strike me as particularly compatible with the gently pickled fish. Then I grabbed a slice with my hand, pretending it was a tortilla chip. Genius. More

One-Skillet Cod and Kale With Ginger and Garlic

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 4 comments

Cod and kale may seem like an unlikely combination, but, when cooked until tender, the robust green actually makes a fantastic backdrop to the delicate, white-fleshed fish. In this quick and easy one-skillet dinner, we braise dinosaur kale (also known as Tuscan kale) in an aromatic mixture of rice wine, sesame oil, garlic, and ginger, then steam fillets of codfish on top. More

Whole Roast Fish for 2 With Mushroom Pesto and Roasted Wild Mushrooms

Serious Eats Kerry Saretsky Post a comment

This is an elegant meal for two, but not too elegant to make at home. A big sea bass or bream, stuffed with mushroom-truffle pesto, full of parsley and basil and pine nuts, and topped with crisp-broiled mushrooms. Who could resist that for dinner? More

Salt Cod, Orange, and Olive Salad (Remojón de Naranja) From 'Spain'

Serious Eats Kate Williams Post a comment

Salt cod makes several appearances in Jeff Koehler's new cookbook, Spain. Some recipes use it for seasoning rather than a centerpiece, while others offer it on a plate with little more than olive oil. I wanted to strike a balance between the two, and chose to prepare a simple salad of salt cod, orange, and black olives. More

Lake Trout With Nuoc Mam Gung and Broccoli

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 8 comments

Roasted fish gets paired with a flavorful Vietnamese dipping sauce called nuoc mam gung—a potent mixture of ginger, garlic cloves, chilies, lime juice, sugar, and fish sauce—that tugs at your tongue in all directions. Plus, all you have to do for the sauce is toss everything in a bowl and stir. More

Poached Salmon With Dill Horseradish Sauce

Serious Eats Sydney Oland 3 comments

Walleye With Roasted Grapes and Fingerling Potatoes

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger Post a comment

While I consume most of my grapes in liquid form, I do look forward to fall harvest in the Upper Midwest, when I can pick up little red grapes just bursting with acidity. They are great on their own, but when roasted they gain extra depth without simply turning into a sweet grape jam. More
