ISO [in search of] Fish Recipes

i already did above. You can not be certain if the lump of fish was handled properly. The fish in the fish display may or may not have been previously frozen, BUT YOU CAN SMELL IT FOR STANKY NONFRESHNESS.

Many people can not take the nasty fishy rotting ammonia stench of improperly handled fish, and have been convinced that all fish is nasty. They have probably been exposed to improperly handled fish. Properly handled fish doesnt smell ‘fishy’.

Again, if i cant do the sniff test to make sure it has been properly handled, I wouldnt bother feeding it to my cats.
GO TO THE FISH DISPLAY AND ASK TO SNIFF ANY FISH YOU ARE GOING TO COOK.

I’m coming in from the other perch/haddock thread…

Johnny, I love cast iron, but can’t yet afford my own. I’ll be certain to try that when I do, however.

devilsknew, that sounds fantastic, and doable for me. Tonight I’ll try it and report back on the results!

In addition to swordfish [which i personally dont like, but I make it for mrAru] try shark prepared the same way.

If you get a funny ‘grill topper’ that is just lots of little holes, you can grill fish on your bbq - and grilled veggies are the perfect match. Toss everything, fish and veggies [i really like yellow squash cut into halves, and potatoes cut lengthwise into steak fries] and toss in a ziploc bag with olive oil and montreal seasoning very gently and grill until done. Very nice. My brother does lobster tails on the grill like that and foil bakes potatoes to go with them. nummy,

I like to grill fillets of snapper (or other similar fish. Depending on your supermarket, you should be able to find frozen snapper). A fish basket is a really good tool to have if you grill regularly. Alternatively, you can place slices if citrus fruit on the grill, and then place the fish on top of them to make sure they don’t stick.

Put salt, pepper, and a little chili powder or paprika on the fillet, and grill for a few minutes each side. The trick is knowing when to take it off the grill, and I don’t know any way to tell that other than practice. Personally, I err on the side of slightly underdone. Carry-over will likely finish it up, and even if it doesn’t I’d rather eat underdone than overdone fish.

Then I top with a mango salsa. Chop mango, red onion, a little jalapeno or serrano pepper, then combine with chopped cilantro, salt, and lime juice.

Try that salsa with a can of drained black beans mixed in. We add rice vinegar instead of lime juice.

If you want frozen fish that won’t let you down, I highly recommend Prime Select Seafoods. Also the best source for smoked salmon.

You can also just deep-fry it in a pot. I like cast iron because it tends to retain the temperature when cold food is put into it. But oil-inna-pot will work fine.

Cast iron isn’t expensive, BTW. A Lodge Logic 10-1/4" skillet costs about $15. A 10-1/4" chicken fryer (deeper than the skillet) with a basting lid is $30. Or you can pick up imported, non-seasoned pans from sporting goods stores or Rite-Aid that are cheaper; or look in garage sales if you’re into that, as you might get a pan for a couple of bucks.

But $15 for your basic skillet is a good deal for something that will last a lifetime or three.

Wow, they’re like $40 around me. I’ll do some more in-depth searching in stores, or peruse the interwebs perhaps. Thanks!

Lodge 10-1/4" cast iron skillet, $15.29
Lodge 10-1/4" chicken fryer, $29.99

The cool thing about the chicken fryer is that you can use it as a regular skillet, and the self-basting lid fits the normal 10-1/14" skillet.

You can search ‘lodge cast iron’ on Amazon (I like Lodge), or just ‘cast iron skillet’. I’ve heard Camp Chef are good.

But really, I’ve used a heavy stainless steel pot for frying fish. Mmm… I’m thinking maybe I should have a fish fry next weekend. We’ll see how I feel then…

There. Is. No. Fish. Display.

There is a freezer section that contains fish. :frowning:

Although my swordfish recipe does sound delicious, and I love shark… you like shark, but don’t like swordfish? That’s a hard one for me to process… I believe lindsaybluth was talking about a perch recipe that I proffered in the merged Perch and Haddock thread. Although that recipe hasn’t been merged here. Apparently, the mod has put us on a gradual, several day penetration and induction from that thread?

Although, I don’t agree with throwing the tilapia away, as some have mentioned, the tilapia is a fish that is very mild and indistinct, if not delicate. I don’t believe it is quite as bad as some people make it seem and the good part about it is that it accepts many flavors in cooking. I like to think of it as the sole or skate of the amazon.

I have had sole and skate prepared and enhanced with crab stuffing as such and found it festive and special occasion fare-- Crabmeat Stuffed Tilapia Rolls.. Tilapia is also perfectly adapted as a flaky “cake” or “ball” fish… I would prepare this salt cod potato ball recipe as directed, simply substituting poached or broiled tilapia for the salt cod, and I would serve with a fresh basil aioli instead of the saffron aioli… save some money and marry fresher with the fish.

Was this translated by babelfish? It sounds like some spam mail I’ve seen.

Random text generator. I like to try these recipes just for the hell of it - most of them are remarkably tasty. It just shows that when you start with quality ingredients, it’s nearly impossible to combine them in a wrong way.

Personally, I think American wing joints are just waiting for Tilapia or Catfish “Wings”. I would go with a wheatflour and cornflour coating… kind of like Hooters current breading. I would develop a spicy cayenne and butter, fish wing sauce toss for traditional. Cornbread and fried okra to accompany. Maybe a ginger sweet and sour asian sauce to toss, serve with daikon … possibly a mexican fish taco version tossed in a chipotle sauce… serve with tortillas, guac, sour cream and cabbage… instead of celery and bleu cheese.

Maybe serve deep fried pickles and ranch in general with the “fish wings” instead of celery and bleu cheese.

You saw itr here first.

I meant to say… Maybe mu shu pancakes, a spring onion, daikon, and a bit of gojuchang and sourcream sauce to couch that tossed catfish.

I have no idea, other than they are actually not related fishes … but swordfish has an almost metallic oily flavor to the meat that shark does not have. And neither taste like tuna=) even though they are all ‘steak textured’ the flavors are all different. I put it down to a genetic predisposition to taste some chemical group or another [i am a cilantro is soapy evil, brocolli is bitter but I like it and eggplant tastes like machine oil and is nasty taster of whatever that chemical in biology class is]

I find that treating perch and haddock the same can sometimes not work, perch is a thin and bony fish, fillets tend to be no more than a quarter to half inch thick, and haddock is a sea fish, with a much thicker fllet and a lot less boney. I tend to treat perch and pike similarly and flake the meat off the bones and make either quenelles [wet cooked fish dumplings] or croquettes [dry baked or fried dumplings]

To be honest, you can not treat all fish the same, there are oily fishes -generally ocean fish, and fish that are not as oily - typically fresh water fish. They can be nice and meaty like cod, haddock, monkfish, or thin and bony like sole, trout, perch and pike. If you overcook an oily fish, frequently it is saveable, but if you overcook a non oily fish you might as well scrape it into the garbage. I dont tend to lump tuna, eel, shark or swordfish in as a fish because I tend to treat it like a hunk of cow - grill, broil, sear … techniques that just really dont work with regular fish.

Seafood like bivalves [scallops, oysters, clams, mussels] bugs [crayfish, crab,lobster, shrimp] and dredge scrapings [urchins, sea cucumbers, pretty much anything else that can be eaten] get treated differently because the techniques used to prepare them vary widely =)

Tilapia when handled properly is fantastic [panko crumb and herb crusted with a delicate lemon sauce is phenomenal] but frozen tilapia that has been handled improperly so that when you thaw it out to cook may be the most godaweful nasty crap you will ever get near your mouth.

Properly handled fish should never smell or taste FISHY as that is a sign of tissue breakdown from improper handling. I have seen frozen fish get partially thawed in shipping getting tossed back in and refrozen. [I used to work for a branch of US Foodservice. You would not believe how easy it is to mishandle food. Needless to say, I do not buy frozen fish. I wait until the fish counter properly thaws it so I can smell the fish in question.]

Shark and swordfish contain high levels of mercury. It is not recommended that you eat it too often if you eat it at all. Personally, I prefer not to eat either of these fish, especially sharks because I believe they are being over fished.
