Salmon Tortilla Pinwheel Appetizers Recipe

Salmon wasabi pinwheels are super easy to make. I prepared wasabi and dill-flavored cream cheese in advance and stored them in the refrigerator until dinner time. The assembling part is so simple a child could roll them. In fact, that’s exactly what we did. I let the kids prepare the rolls and then slice them into bite-sized pieces. We secured the cute appetizers with fancy hors d'oeuvre picks.

For those who can tolerate a little bit of heat, I topped the appetizers with wasabi flavored peanuts to repeat the same flavors from the filling. My husband Lulu brought them back from a recent trip to Texas. Lulu knows what a foodie I am so he always tries to find new products for me to experiment with. It’s not all that altruistic though, since he’s usually the beneficiary of these creations. Don’t I have the sweetest husband?

Fried Haddock Recipe

03.03.11 by Jackie

Haddock is a very popular white, firm-fleshed fish, but it can be bland if not seasoned properly. To enhance the flavor, I marinated haddock fish in white wine, ginger, lemongrass, red chili powder and crushed garlic. The fish was lightly coated in a little flour, then pan-fried until golden brown. It came out beautifully moist and wonderfully fragrant. I served it with vegetable couscous, but it makes the best filling for fish sandwiches as well.

I absolutely love fried seafood. I probably eat it more than I should. I have a few recipes that I always turn to when I need a fix, and this is one of my favorites. I always have to be careful whenever I cook seafood so I don’t scare off the vegetarians in my home. This particular fish doesn’t send them running for the hills, so it’s a perfect compromise.

Horseradish Cream Sauce for Fish Recipe

Fish can have a strong taste, depending on the kind of fish and how it's prepared, which often necessitates a counter-balance of flavor. Horseradish sauce ("sauce au raifort" in French) is an excellent option.

Horseradish gives a depth of flavor to almost any fish due to its subtle tinge of heat, when added in small quantities. Whether you pair the sauce with a simple fish preparation cooked in butter, fish en papillote or steamed fish, this delicious horseradish sauce will be the highlight of your entrée.

Pan-Fried Turbot Fish Recipe Recipe

Pan-Fried Turbot Fish Recipe

12.02.10 by Jackie

Turbot fish is a flat, bright white-fleshed fish that is well-known in both French and Asian cuisine. The flavor is quite delicate and is perfect if you're looking for a light meal.

I dredged the fish in a little flour and pan-fried it until the surface is slightly crispy. The only trick to preparing turbot is to carefully watch the cooking time. You don’t want the fish to be too dry and over-cooked.

I decided to serve it with fish sauce. You could also accompany the fish with spicy Indian-style salsa (called kachumbar) or a French sauce I often love to pair with fish, called sauce au raifort (horseradish).

Hoisin-Glazed Roasted Sea Bass Recipe Recipe

We hosted a dinner party this evening. I served a surf and turf main dish composed of a steak and sea bass. I really wanted to find a decadent, over the top kind of fish for this special evening. Sea bass seemed like the perfect choice; it's a lean fish with a meaty texture and a rich, buttery taste. I glazed the fish with hoisin and miso. The firm white fish pairs very well with the sweet and salty glaze. I quickly seared the fish on top of the stove to create a caramelized crust around the fish and finished roasting it in the oven.

This dish took me down memory lane, back to when Lulu and I were preparing for our wedding reception. I remember this particular hoisin glaze was one of the options we selected.
