Grilled Yellowtail with Spicy Peppercorn Oil

This Spicy Peppercorn Oil is best made a day ahead, so plan accordingly. In a pinch, you can make a fast batch and just slap it on your fish, but it’s mo’ betta after a day or two. It really brings out the flavor of the fish.

Halibut with Herb and Chive Oil

Fresh halibut is on my Top Ten list of favorite fish, especially the smaller “local” variety from California. This blended oil will complement any fish, even if you do insist on overcooking it.

Paul Prudhomme, the legendary New Orleans chef, is generally credited with bringing blackened fish to the American culinary forefront.

How you cook the fish or the type of fish you use is up to you. This spirited vinaigrette is great on just about anything. I like it with grilled fish and warm flour tortillas.

Fish with Green Coconut Curry Sauce

If you are not a big fan of the standard Indian yellow curry powders, I’m with you. A little goes a long way and, for me, I can take it only a few times a year. Asian curry pastes are a whole different ballgame. There are yellow, red and green curry pastes. You will find…
