Jalapeno Fish Spread

Broil, bake, fry, grill, sauté, pan-sear, pan-fry, stir-fry, braise, barbecue, cold-smoke, hot-smoke…but what about mash-it-up-into-a-spread? 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…

Beer Poached Halibut with Parmesan Cream Sauce

Poaching is a great way to keep cooked fish moist and flavorful. Food is gently cooked in liquid just below the boiling point. You can poach fish in a covered pan on the stovetop or in the oven as in this recipe. I’ve used this recipe with whole dressed fish and fillets of halibut and…

Honey Orange Stir-Fried Fish

Needless to say, you have to be a little careful when you stir-fry fish, especially the flaky varieties. How you cut your fish prior to stir-frying depends on the fish. If you plan on using light, flaky fish like halibut or sea bass, use larger pieces. Chances are good that they’re going to break up…
