Fish Dinners, Reimagined

If fish is in regular rotation, go beyond simple roasting and grilling. 
Article Image

We all know that roasting, searing, and grilling fish brings out its distinctive flavors, but have you ever tried tea-smoking? How about roasting fish in an elegant salt crust or poaching it in olive oil? The recipes here change up your normal fish routine by going beyond the most commonly used cooking methods—with delicious results.

  • Recipe

    Salt-Crusted Trout with Lemon-Dill Beurre Blanc

    Salt-crusting keeps fish ultramoist during roasting, so it comes out silky, flaky, and perfectly cooked. Mild trout pairs well with a classic lemon-dill white wine sauce. 
  • Recipe

    Olive Oil Poached Halibut with Fennel and Saffron

    Submerging fish fillets or steaks in a warm bath of olive oil, then cooking it over low, slow heat gives the fish a velvety, unctuous texture. Fennel and saffron rub play up the Mediterranean flavors.
  • Recipe

    Olive Oil Poached Tuna with Caper and Olive Vinaigrette

    This dish is a showcase of assertive flavors: tuna, garlic, rosemary, olives. Yet, they balance one another beautifully, and the tuna stays moist and flavorful through the poaching process.
  • Recipe

    Black Pepper Pipis

    To say this recipe is for lovers of pepper (both black and spicy red) is an understatement, but the pepper adds pleasant fire to mild clams.
  • Recipe

    Blackened Tilapia with Cilantro-Lime Slaw

    A high-heat sear in butter gives these spice-crusted tilapia fillets a slightly charred exterior, brightened here by a tangy lime-cilantro slaw.
  • Recipe

    Tea-Smoked Salmon with Citrus-Cucumber Relish

    Salmon fillets are gently grilled with a smoking packet of tea, rice, and spices, which infuse it with a fragrant smokiness, complemented here by a sweet and tangy cucumber-citrus relish.
  • Recipe

    Baconized Tuna with Lemon Butter

    There’s some perverse pleasure in taking a low-in-fat, good-for-you protein like tuna and surrounding it with bacon fat and butter. You’re still going to get the health benefits of eating the tuna, but you’ll also experience the pure joy of having the fat.
  • Recipe

    Basic Lemon & Herb Fish en Papillote

    Foods cooked "en papillote"—in a paper bag—emerge succulent and saturated with flavor. As they bake, the steam causes them to puff up and when you cut into them, you are rewarded with a cloud of aromatic steam-the perfect way to bring a little drama to the dinner table.
  • Recipe

    Salmon Fillets with Horseradish-Potato Crust

    Here, the crispy potato crust not only adds flavor, it also dresses up the salmon in an unexpected way and makes for an elegant riff on traditional fish and chips.

  • Recipe

    Miso-Glazed Cod

    Coating fish fillets with a paste of miso and mirin, then broiling them quickly until browned creates a lovely sweet-salty-savory crust, just like at your favorite Japanese restaurant.
  • Recipe

    Cedar-Planked Salmon with Red Pepper & Caper Sauce

    Grilling fish on a soaked cedar plank imbues the fillets with a gentle, spicy smoke from the wood. Though this method hails from the Pacific Northwest, here it's paired with Spanish flavors in a caper-piquillo pepper sauce.
  • Recipe

    Flounder Poached in Coconut, Ginger & Basil Broth

    Delicate flounder fillets soak up the ginger, chile, and shallot infused into the hot coconut-milk bath for a haunting Thai-inspired dish.
  • Recipe

    Grilled Salmon Bundles with Saffron, Tomatoes & Olives

    Foil grilling takes the "en papillote" technique outside to the grill. Cooking the salmon in a foil packet together with a chunky saffron-olive tomato salsa really marries the flavors together.
  • Recipe

    Salmon in Crisp Rice Paper with Sweet & Spicy Sake Essence

    Wrapping fish fillets in a piece of moistened rice paper then quickly searing it creates an unusual crunchy coating. The sweet and spicy sake sauce paired with the salmon here plays up the Asian flavors.
