What do you do when your friend shows up at your house with a huge haul of freshly caught fish? Say a big thanks and start thinking about a new recipe idea.
Now, we eat a lot of fish in my house. I love the way eating fish makes me feel. You can eat a lot and feel full. But shortly after finishing dinner, you do not feel bloated or heavy. It is an awesome feeling and even better because I like seafood so much. There are so many varieties of seafood that you will not get tired of the “same old fish.” It is truly amazing all the different waters that seafood comes from whether we are talking about the Atlantic or Pacific Ocean, our many lakes and rivers or now fish farms. Fish are generally categorized into FRESHWATER or salt water kinds.
Seafood is also very versatile. I have tried many different varieties of seafood and presented it in so many different cultural flavors. The first recipe used YELLOWEYE FILLETS IN A CURRY SAUCE. How about this traditional Spanish rice dish – PAELLA MADE WITH SALMON AND COD. What about this south of the border SPICY MEXICAN PAICHE. One final idea is this British classic made with cod – GLUTEN FREE FISH AND CHIPS.
The Pan Fried Sea Bass Tacos are so easy to make. The fish is dusted in gluten free flour. Quickly grilled in a sauté pan and peppers and onions, napa cabbage and a dill cream sauce. The dish has flavor, texture and color. It is a real winner.
