Baked Fresh Salmon

3 lbs. - salmon

1 teaspoon - salt

1 teaspoon - black pepper

1/2 teaspoon - thyme

3 tablespoons - butter

1 1/2 cup – light cream

3 - onions, sliced

3 - parsley sprigs

1 - garlic clove, quartered

1 - bay leaf

2 - cucumbers (peeled and cut into strips)

Combine salt, pepper and thyme in a small bowl, then rub the mixture on all sides of the salmon. Melt the butter in a baking dish and then add the salmon and coat it with the butter. Add your light cream, onion slices, parsley, garlic, and bay leaf to the baking dish and arrange the cucumber strips around the fish. Bake covered for 40 minutes or until the center bone can be removed easily. Remove and discard the bay leaf, onion, parsley and garlic before serving. The flavor is all you want. Serves 4 to 6.

Baked Salmon Steaks

6 - salmon steaks (about 1 inch thick)

1/3 cup - butter or margarine

1/2 teaspoon - salt

1/4 teaspoon - paprika

1 teaspoon - Worcestershire sauce

2 tablespoons - grated onion

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Place salmon steaks in a greased baking pan. Add melted butter, salt, paprika, one tablespoon of grated onion and Worcestershire sauce in a small bowl and spread this mixture over the fish. Sprinkle the remaining one tablespoon of grated onion over each steak. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Serves 6 to 8.

Baked Tuna Stuffed Potatoes

8 - large baking potatoes

2 tablespoons - oleo

2 cans - tuna (7 oz.) - drained

1 tablespoon - grated onion

1 tablespoon - chopped parsley

1 can - cheddar cheese soup

1/4 teaspoon - paprika

2 drops (or more) - Tabasco sauce

1/4 teaspoon - salt

4 slices - American cheese (halve them)

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees . Wash your potatoes and rub the oleo all over them. Poke holes in them with a fork. Place potatoes in preheated oven for 1 1/2 hrs. or until tender. Combine your tuna, onion, parsley, cheese soup, paprika, Tabasco sauce and salt in a small bowl. Mix with a fork to break up the tuna and blend it well. Cut a small (about 1 inch) slice off the top of each potato. Scoop out the inside of potatoes, leaving just the shell. Add the scoops of potatoes to your tuna mixture and mix well. Spoon the mixture lightly into your potato shells (enough to create a mound). Top each potato with a 1/2 slice of cheese. Return to oven until cheese melts. Serves 8.

Cheesy Broiled Flounder

2 lbs. - flounder or white fish

2 tablespoons - lemon juice

1/2 cup - Parmesan cheese

1/4 cup - softened butter

3 tablespoons - mayonnaise

3 - green onions (chopped)

1/4 teaspoon - salt

1 - dash of hot sauce per fish

Place your fish fillets in a single layer on a greased, oven-to-table type broiler pan. Brush your fillets with lemon juice. Combine Parmesan, butter, mayo, green onions, salt and the hot sauce of your choice in a small bowl and set it aside. I prefer Red Dot Louisiana hot sauce. Broil the fillets for 6 to 8 minutes or until they flake easily. You will be able to tell with a fork. Remove your fish from the oven and spread on the cheese mixture. Broil for another minute or so, or until the cheese is lightly browned and bubbly. Garnish with lemon twists and parsley for style. Serves 2 to 4.

Easy and Delicious Blackened Catfish

4 - catfish fillets (about 4 - 5 ounces each)

1 teaspoon - paprika

½ teaspoon - ground sage

½ teaspoon - ground cumin

½ teaspoon - garlic powder

½ teaspoon - onion powder

½ teaspoon - sugar

½ teaspoon - salt

¼ teaspoon - ground cayenne

1 teaspoon - olive oil

2 - lemons

Combine paprika, sage, cumin, garlic powder, sugar, salt, cayenne and onion powder in a large freezer bag. Close the bag and shake until the seasonings are well blended. Put 1 fillet in the bag at a time and shake until lightly coated. Grease a large, non-stick skillet with oil or cooking spray. Add about 3 tablespoons of oil and heat over medium-low heat until hot. Add your catfish fillets, with the skinned side up and cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until lightly blackened. Carefully flip the fillets with a spatula. Cook 4 to 5 minutes longer or until fish feels firm and dark on the thickest part. Slice your lemons and serve the slices with your blackened catfish.

Stuffed Fish Fillets

4 red snapper or flounder fillets (5; oz each)

2 tablespoons - low calorie margarine

1/4 cup - chopped scallions

1/4 cup - chopped green peppers

2 slices - white bread (crumbed)

1 - egg (beaten)

1/3 cup - chopped fresh parsley

1/2 teaspoon - salt

1 dash nutmeg & red pepper (1 dash per fillet)

2 tablespoons - lemon juice

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a large skillet (about 10 inches), melt the margarine and remove 1 tablespoon and set it aside. Heat the remaining margarine until it becomes bubbly and hot. Next, add the scallions and green peppers to the skillet and sauté over medium heat until vegetables are soft. This will take about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove skillet from heat and let it cool slightly. Now, add the bread crumbs, egg, 1/4 cup parsley, salt, nutmeg and red pepper to the vegetables and mix well. Spoon 1/4 of the vegetable mixture over each fillet and roll them up. They should stay closed however, if they don't, use toothpicks to secure them. Place your stuffed fillets,closed end down, to a greased, 8 x 8 x 2 baking pan and spoon any remaining ingredients over them. Drizzle your reserved margarine over the fillets and sprinkle each one with 1/2 tablespoon of lemon juice. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until the fish easily flakes. You will be able to tell with a fork. Sprinkle your rolled fillets with the remaining parsley and serve. Serves 4 to 6.

Easy Tex-Mex Tuna Salad or Tunacos

2 cans - solid white tuna in water (drained and flaked)(about 7oz.)

1/2 cup - sliced ripe olives

1/2 cup - sliced green onions w/tops

1/2 cup - thin sliced celery

2/3 cup - picante sauce

1/2 cup - sour cream

1 teaspoon - ground cumin

1 - bag of shredded lettuce

12 - taco shells or 3 cups of tortilla chips

Combine tuna, olives, green onions and celery in medium sized bowl and set aside. Combine picante sauce, sour cream and cumin in a separate bowl and mix well. Pour the picante sauce mixture over the tuna mixture and mix lightly (toss like you would a salad). Line your taco shells with lettuce and spoon the tuna mixture into the shells. Or line individual plates with tortilla chips and top with tuna mixture. Put about a half handful of shredded lettuce over the tuna mixture and drizzle on some more Picante Sauce. Top with sour cream, if desired and serve.
