Baked Fish with Peach Relish Recipe

Baked Fish with Peach Relish

05.09.13 by Jackie

Here's probably the easiest baked fish recipe. Swai fillet (catfish) is seasoned with Bellindora seasoning, smoked paprika and cayenne pepper. Then, it's pan-seared with a combination of olive oil and butter and transferred to the oven until fully cooked. I use the combination of fats so that the butter doesn't burn. Right before the end of the cooking time, peach relish is spread over the fish to add a sweet and acidic flavor to the fish.

The peach relish is made with canned peaches, a lot of Italian parsley, pickled spring onions, Bellindora balsamic peach vinegar and red mini sweet peppers. It adds a brightness and freshness to the dish. I can't wait for peach season to make the dish again with fresh fruit!

Pan Roasted Halibut Recipe Recipe

Pan Roasted Halibut Recipe

03.27.11 by Jackie

I love fish, but halibut can be a little bland. Like other mild ingredients though, it makes a perfect canvas upon which to "paint" stronger flavors. For this recipe, I used a spicy and tangy yogurt marinade to perk up the halibut. In this case the marinade does double duty, as it not only flavors but imparts a lovely color to the fish.

The preparation of the halibut is similar to how I cook many other fish so they're covered in a thick, paste-like marinade. A brief pan sear followed by a short stint in the oven is all it takes to transform the uncooked halibut into a main course you'll be proud to serve.

Breaded Tilapia (Nori Crusted Fish Recipe) Recipe

Tilapia is an easy fish to prepare but can be pretty bland on its own. To enhance the flavor, I breaded the fish with a blend of shortbread cookies, white miso paste, wasabi and nori sheets. I covered the fish fillets with nori-flavored breading, pan-fried it and finish the cooking in the oven.

If you're trying to introduce seafood to your children, I think tilapia is a good fish to start with. It's mild in flavor and the other plus is it's inexpensive.

Lemon Crusted Fish (Baked Mahi Mahi Recipe) Recipe

This lemon crusted fish recipe is my attempt to create a savory dish using the Walkers shortbread cookies I recently received. Instead of using bread crumbs, I finely ground shortbread cookies that I blended with sun-dried tomatoes, parsley, candied kumquats, lemon zest and a few other spices.

I used mahi mahi because it's a great way to introduce fish to children, as the flesh is more subtle in flavor than any other fish. When properly cooked, mahi mahi is flaky with bright, firm flesh. To make the dish, I very briefly seared the fish, covered the fillets with the lemon crust and bakes them for a few minutes. It was as simple as that!

The shortbread crust has a buttery flavor and mild sweetness that really accentuates the fish. I set some aside and the girls were eating the crust by itself. It was such a hit that I’m thinking of recreating the dish with fried tofu instead of fish. Stay tuned.

Salmon Teriyaki Recipe

Salmon Teriyaki

02.20.10 by Jackie

Fish can seem challenging to make at home but, pavé de saumon caramélisé (salmon teriyaki) is an ultra-easy recipe. All you need to do is ask your fishmonger to prep the salmon in advance for you. I made a teriyaki-inspired glaze to go with the salmon and served it with rice.

If you've been following my culinary adventures since the beginning of Pham Fatale, you may recall that I posted one of Lulu's favorite tofu recipes, called "sesame tofu caramelized with agave nectar and wasabi". This vegetarian recipe was inspired by this salmon dish. I hadn't made it in a long. tine, but my mother-in-law brought home some beautiful salmon fillets, so I told her I'd be in charge and surprise her. She loved it even though she said I should have tripled the amount of wasabi paste (she loves spicy food). You're welcome to follow her advice if you prefer it really spicy, but I'm a wimp, so I'll stick to just a half teaspoon...
