Favorite Fish Recipes

KingsKetz | Feb 13, 2009 08:44 AM

I realize more and more that I do not cook enough fish at home. This is a particular shame I believe because I think fish cooks quickly and could make a great during-the-week meal.

Two things deter me --

The first is that I have no easy access to fresh fish. I live in Ditmas Park, Brooklyn and there no fish stores in my neighborhood. I have two ways to get around this. I can readily get flash frozen fish at Trader Joe and, if I rouse myself, I can get over to Fairway and pick up some fresh fish.

The second obstacle is my own lack of confidence in making fish. I just don't have a good technique down at all. When I eat out, I love fish that has a crust on it and is then roasted in the oven. It's moist at the center and has good flavor. Whenever I try to cook it that way it just sticks or doesn't work. It definitely doesn't crust. But I'm also open to other techniques. I don't know how to do any sauces for fish. And it seems that fish meals are blah....I don't know what to serve WITH the fish to make it a more interesting meal.

I'd appreciate those among you who are enthusiastic fish cooks sharing your recipes, techniques and ideas. Be kind to this fish novice...I do need a LOT of help!
