Recipes A to Z ....."F" is for Fish

Updated on August 27, 2009

Selecting Fish

Depend on your eyes and nose when shopping for fish. Look for freshness. The skin should be shiny and feel firm. Fillets should be moist and cleanly cut, not ragged.

Do not buy fish if it smells "fishy." Avoid it if there are brown or yellow edges. It is old.

If you are buying frozen fish, make sure it is solidly frozen. Avoid packages that are torn or if frost is visible inside or out.

These are some of my favorite fish recipes. I hope you like them.

Golden Parmesan Sole -Fast and Easy

This is the best dish I know to make in a hurry for unexpected company. During baking, the cheese and butter brown slightly to a fine, thin crispness. Grind fresh black pepper over the fish before serving.

Spread a shallow baking pan with 1/4 cup butter. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese. Wipe the fish with a damp paper towel. Arrange fish pieces ( 4 sole fillets) in a single layer over the cheese. Dot with more butter and sprinkle more grated cheese on top (about another 1/2 cup).

Bake in preheated 400 degree F oven, basting several times with the melted butter and cheese in the pan, until the fish barely separates when tested with a dinner knife, about 15 minutes. Serve with drippings. Garnish with fresh parsley. Makes 4 servings

Shrimp Alfredo - Microwave Meal

2 cans shrimp ( you can use the salad shrimp), washed and drained

2/3 package fettichini noodles, cooked and drained

Add 2 Tablespoons olive oil to noodles, after cooked

2 cups jarred white Alfredo sauce, with mushrooms (I use "5 Brothers")

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Spray baking dish with vegetable oil and spread noodles in bottom. Add  Alfredo sauce, with mushrooms. Stir. Add shrimp on top of sauce. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Cover and put in microwave for 8 minutes on medium heat. Add  mozzarella cheese. Microwave 1-2 minutes to melt cheese. Fast and Easy!

Grilled Salmon

Salmon is my favorite fish. This recipe is so easy and delicious!

Salmon steaks

Melted butter

Maple syrup

Prepare grill on medium high heat. Clean and dry salmon. Melt about a Tablespoon butter and mix with 1 Tablespoon maple syrup. Brush one side of salmon with this mixture and place on grill, glazed side down. One salmon is nicely charred, flip over and cook until it flakes with a fork. Do not overcook. Serve with grilled pineapple.

Flounder AuGratin

1/4 cup dry bread crumbs

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 pound flounder fillets

1/4 cup plain yogurt

Combine bread crumbs and cheese in a shallow dish or on a sheet of waxed paper. Brush all sides of fillets with yogurt. Coat with crumb mixture.

Arrange in single layer in a shallow baking pan. Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden and fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Makes 4 servings.

      Tony, even here in Florida, the fish that you buy in the grocery store is previously frozen. It is difficult to find truly fresh fish, unless you catch it yourself.

      Thanks for your comments.

      I look forward to trying these out. I love fish so much. Problem with living so far from the sea is taht the freshness is often questionable.

      Love and peace
