Fish Salad Recipes

Grouper is a saltwater fish which is similar to sea bass. It is delicate and mild in flavor, making it perfectly malleable for spicy jerk sauces and other strongly flavored ingredients. When looking for recipes for baked grouper, you might like to stick to interesting, spicy recipes because grouper can handle these flavors so well. It really is one of the best fish to use if you want to add plenty of flavor to the dressing or sauce. If you cannot get it, use hake instead; that will give you equally good results. Red snapper would also work.

The fish in this baked jerk grouper recipe is spiced up and then you can add some cherry tomatoes to the dish before cooking it. These add a refreshing flavor to the dish. The addition of lime juice adds a flavor which suits the overall piquancy and these ingredients also add color. Serve this with rice if you like or with boiled potatoes. Fries would also be a good accompaniment with this dish.

The spiciness mellows a bit as this dish cooks so don’t be tempted to reduce the amount of chilies or allspice berries since those are what keeps this dish so authentic! Scotch bonnet chili pepper is the hottest kind of pepper there is, so if you are not keen on spicy dishes, this recipe for baked grouper might not be the recipe for you! If you like spicy fish recipes, you are sure to love this one. Any leftover jerk sauce will keep for a few weeks in the refrigerator. Continue reading

To make the best tuna sandwich recipe, you should start with good quality canned tuna. Perhaps you have some leftover cooked tuna steaks, in which case you can use those instead. Tuna packed in olive oil can be tastier than tuna packed in water but sometimes the quality of the tuna is lower, so use what you like. If you use tuna packed in water, drain off the water and stir in a little extra-virgin olive oil for a fantastic result.

The following recipe blends the tuna with mayonnaise and cottage cheese for a creamy result. You can add a little Dijon mustard too if you fancy it. The other ingredients include celery and onion for crunch, as well as dill, lemon and parsley for extra flavor. You can also add a spoonful of capers if you want to. The resulting tuna sandwich recipe combines smoothness with crunch, and offers a perfectly balanced snack. If you want a low carb option, forget the bread and serve the tuna salad on lettuce leaves instead.

The simplest way to make a basic tuna salad recipe would be to mash canned tuna with mayonnaise and that would be it, but there are so many other ingredients which pair well with tuna, so it is nice to use celery or onion for crunch, and add some lemon juice and parsley for extra flavor. You can also add more salad ingredients to the sandwich like cucumber or tomato slices, or you could stir some corn kernels into the tuna mayonnaise mixture. The following recipe is more of a guide than something you have to follow to the letter. If you want to play around with the ingredients, by all means do so. Continue reading

This tasty salad recipe combines fish with barley and salad. The fish is delicately seasoned with soy sauce and olive oil and the barley makes the salad more hearty and satisfying. This recipe also features shallot, lime juice, cilantro, and garlic, to add flavor. This is a simple yet delicious dish and it does not take long to make.

Use hulled barley instead of pearl barley if you want to make the healthiest version of this cod salad recipe. Hulled barley is not as processed as pearl barley; it still has its outer bran layer on so it is a good fiber source. Hulled barley is nuttier too, which is a flavor a lot of people prefer. Depending on which kind of barley you go for, it might take between forty five minutes and one and a half hours to cook.

This is an unusual dish, in that many people associate barley with thick, heavy stew and this recipe demonstrates that it is way more versatile than that. The barley provides a base layer for the salad, making it more substantial and filling. Likewise, cod is often served hot in some kind of creamy or tomato-based sauce. In this cod salad recipe, it is used to top the salad, together with the garlic it is baked with. This is a creative and simple recipe and you will love the flavor. Continue reading

This easy smoked salmon salad recipe only takes about five minutes to prepare if everything is chopped or ready to use. The salad features corn, red onion, avocado and smoked salmon and the dressing has sherry vinegar, shallots, and garlic, so you can imagine what a flavorful salad it is going to be. Feel free to adapt the salad recipe as you see fit, maybe adding some walnuts or cashews to it, or even crumbling feta or blue cheese over the top before adding the vinaigrette.

You can use fresh salmon here, instead of the smoked salmon, if you want to. If you do, then simply poach a salmon filet in gently simmering water for five minutes or until it is opaque and then chop it up, removing any skin, and use it in the salad. Smoked salmon and fresh salmon are both great ingredients and either of these would be good in a salmon salad recipe.

Fish is a healthy ingredient to use and it is always nice to discover new easy fish recipes, whether these are fish salads, baked fish recipes, grilled fish recipes or something else. A lot of people only ever use one or two kinds of fish and they always seem to end up making the same meals with it over and over again. Once people begin to get bored with these recipes, they stop cooking with fish altogether, which is a shame because fish is incredibly versatile, whichever variety you are talking about.

This unusual recipe is simple to make and it also looks quite basic but when everyone tastes the vegetables and finds out they have been marinated, that adds a whole new dimension to this salad. Also, there is cod tossed with the salad and that has a great flavor as well.

If you have some fish to use up, why not make this light and refreshing fish salad recipe? You can use tilapia, salmon, or any other fish that you want. Shrimps, crab or lobster would also be good here. You can adjust the marinade recipe if you like. Some people like to add Tabasco sauce or chili powder for a spicy kick.

Why not mix and match your fish in this recipe? If you want to use crabmeat or shrimp as well as the cod, go for it. It might be nice to arrange the shrimp on top of the salad and have the fish underneath, or you can just toss the whole lot together. The cod takes on a nice flavor when you marinate it briefly but do not leave it any more than twenty minutes (or thirty maximum) because it does not need it and over-marinated fish can go mushy.
