Happy Saturday! Today I have collected 6 Great Recipes for Fish. Fish is a great protein alternative and it doesn’t have to be boring! Many people avoid cooking fish because of the cooking aromas that linger in the kitchen. While I don’t mind this, I totally understand the sentiment. I have a few recipes here that don’t involve cooking fish at all – tinned fish is a wonderful way to add healthy fish to your diet without having to cook it. But for those fish-lovers out there, I have a couple sheet pan fish recipes perfect for a weeknight. And then of course I have a couple less-than-healthy fish recipes, because sometimes beer battered fish is the most perfect thing!

Sheet pan dinners are easy to love; one pan cooking at its easiest. I think the main challenge is to come up with new and different combinations besides the go-to chicken and veggies. Today we have a a delicious, Mediterranean-style combination: Halibut with green beans, cherry tomatoes, shallots, green olives, feta and lemon. Seasoned simply with fresh herbs, kosher salt, black pepper, and plenty of olive oil, this sheet pan dinner is quick; it’s colorful, light and so full of fresh flavor. Let’s get right to it: Sheet Pan Mediterranean Baked Halibut and Veggies.
Herby Roasted Salmon with Asparagus and Smashed Potatoes is a single sheet pan meal. We will do it in phases so that each component is perfectly cooked. A big part of the magic with this meal is how we are serving it. Kinda like a rice bowl but with crispy-edged smashed Yukon Golds instead of rice. A beautifully plated meal, well-balanced and absolutely delicious.
Lent has begun, if you celebrate the Lenten Season. This also means that Spring and Easter are just around the corner. Easter is celebrated on the first Sunday following the first full moon after the spring equinox (March 20). This year, that will occur later than usual, Easter falls on April 17. We have a lot to celebrate this time of year. I am eager to celebrate the return of Spring. It’s already happening here in Athens. The Japanese Magnolias are in full bloom; the daffodils are showing off their sunny disposition. Even if you do not observe the tradition of Fish Fridays during the Lenten Season, this Beer Battered Crispy Fish Sandwich is a recipe worth celebrating!
Today I have an incredibly simple recipe perfect for a weeknight – and perfect for one or two people. When was the last time you had a fish stick? It has been decades for me…but I recently saw a taste test for store-bought frozen fish sticks by America’s Test Kitchen. They rated Gorton’s as their favorite. I thought, why the hell not? Let’s give it a go. So today we have Simple Fish Stick Tacos and coleslaw, on warm soft flour tortillas with chipotle sour cream, cilantro, pickled onions and hot sauce.
Today’s pizza makes a great brunch pizza. With hot smoked salmon and herbed Boursin cheese, we have shallots, capers and mozzarella – finished with fresh dill. This is a very pretty pizza, with lovely spring-like colors and fresh savory flavor. Hot smoked salmon is smoked at a higher temperature than cold smoked, resulting in a different texture and a much smokier flavor. If you can’t find hot smoked salmon you can substitute with lox or other smoked fish. Smoked trout would be amazing!
We are heading into the weekend with this very delicious, very simple recipe for Niçoise Toast. I love Niçoise Salad and this recipe puts a tiny salad on a thick slice of fried bread. Move over Avocado Toast, I think I have found my new favorite toast! This recipe is super simple to toss together and it does so with pantry staples. I will say that you will want to go with oil-packed tuna for this though, which is something I have mentioned before, like with the Mediterranean Tuna Salad we made recently. Olive oil-packed tuna is rich, flavorful and moist. But with the flavors packed into this toast, tuna is only part of the story, let’s get to the recipe!
