Salmon BLT

I stole this idea from The Colony House Restaurant in Charleston, South Carolina many years ago. It’s one of America’s all-time favorite sandwiches made even better with the addition of freshly caught salmon. I like to serve this with cool summer melons and a glass of crisp dry white wine.

Catfish Wrap with Avocado and Tomato Salsa

How you cook the fish is your call, but I prefer the smoky flavor of grilled fish. However you decide to cook it, just don’t cook it too long! The coleslaw makes it cool, creamy and crunchy. The biggest tortillas you can find work best. If all you can locate are smaller ones, allow two…

Spicy Salmon and Shrimp Eggs Benedict

If you’ve ever tried to make hollandaise sauce using the classic method of whisking the ingredients constantly over a double boiler, you know how tedious it can be. Well, you have got to try my blender version of hollandaise sauce. It’s fool-proof (aka Scott-proof) and only takes about 1 minute. After you have made the…

Salmon Escondido

Escondido is a town in northern California. I’m sure there is a story here, I just can’t remember it. You can either grill or sear your salmon. If grilling, Gerry recommends cooking on a wood plank. “They just make the salmon so delicious and flaky”.  We agree.

When most folks think about making a fish spread, it’s all about salmon or maybe tuna. While both fish make great spreads, it’s easy to make a delicious fish spread with just about any type of fish. I like to…

Dungeness Crab Cakes

Also works with picked blue crab and, if you’re out of crab, cooked flaky white-fleshed fish fillets work well, too. Just make sure that the crab meat has been patted dry with two-ply paper towels. If it’s too wet, it won’t hold together when cooked. Serve with flavored aioli, tartar sauce, clarified butter or cocktail…

Pickled Shrimp

Those of you might not think this shrimp looks really appetizing – but trust me, it tastes delicious. Keep refrigerated and it will keep for some time for you. Great appetizer for a football party or backyard bbq.

Crappie Tostada

This festive dish has plenty of flavor and texture. Teamed with a Cuervo Gold margarita (shaken, not blended) or a frosty-cold Mexican beer, this is a great warm weather meal. The choice of fish is entirely up to you, but I’m a crappie fan.

Grilled Corn and Black Bean Salsa for Fish

You grill the corn, not the black beans. This recipe is perfect for grilled firm-fleshed fish. It’s best prepared during the summer when local sweet corn is fresh and, if you can get some, homegrown tomatoes have been vine-ripened. This is also great as a side dish!
