Fish Recipes?

Postby Butterfly_Dawn » Mon Nov 14, 2005 8:46 pm

Anybody have any good fish recipes? I grew up in a mostly vegetarian household so meat is about the only thing I can't cook. I really like good fish I hear it's pretty good for you (lean white meat, omega 3's and so on).

I would love some good fish recipes, and maybe a guide to what fish is what since I don't know a salmon from a flake (ok, well maybe that was an exaggeration). Any helpers?

Bream with honey and almonds

The Ingredients
(This will serve 2 people).
2 Bream around 400 grams
1 tablespoon of finely grated fresh ginger
3 shallots
3 tablespoons of soy sauce
1 tablespoon of almonds (slivered or thinly sliced)
1 tablespoon of honey
Juice from 1 lemon
1 tablespoon of butter or margarine


The Steps
1. Clean and scale the fish, wash thoroughly and dry with paper towels. Make several cuts into the flesh on each side of the fish - this will let the marinade get right in.

2. Melt a little butter or margarine in a pan and fry the almond slivers over a medium heat. Keep tossing the almonds and as soon as they turn brown, remove them from the pan. It is necessary to watch them carefully as they will burn very quickly and easily and if that happens toss them away and start again - burnt almonds do not taste good.

3. Mix the honey, grated ginger, lemon juice and soy sauce in a saucepan and gently heat just enough to turn the honey into liquid.

4. Using the pan in which the almonds were cooked, add a little more butter if necessary, cook the finely chopped shallots - just for a minute to soften them. Add to the honey and soy mixture.

5. Place the fish into a shallow dish and pour the marinade (the honey, soy, ginger mixture) over the fish and leave for 15 minutes.

6. Rub some butter over pieces of aluminium foil large enough to completely wrap each fish. Sprinkle the toasted almonds over the fish and put some inside the cavity, pour over some more of the marinade. Wrap each fish securely and put into a 180 degree oven for 15 minutes.
