The most complicated dishes are not always the best ones, contrary to popular belief, and sometimes you can combine fish or meat with some fresh herbs and a little oil and have the most amazing meal, just by doing that. Of course, you will still need to think about side dishes but the meal itself could not be more easy. If you are wondering how to make easy fish recipes, the following dish shows you a great example of one. If you like salmon, you will enjoy this recipe because the herbs just add a delicate flavor; the taste of the fish shines through clearly.

Baked salmon is simple to master, whether you bake it as it is, coat it in herbs or breadcrumbs or do something else to it. Recipes for baked salmon tend to use similar directions and nearly the same cooking temperature, so when you have mastered one baked salmon recipe, you will not find anything too challenging about the others. You will need salmon filets, herbs and spray oil to make this recipe. Choose any herbs you fancy – you are not limited to the chives and parsley suggested in the recipe. Chervil, rosemary, and dill also work well with salmon. You can use fresh or dried herbs.

For a crunchier exterior, combine the herbs with some fine breadcrumbs (use whole wheat or multigrain bread for maximum flavor) and stick the herby breadcrumbs on the outside of the salmon. The salmon in the following quick herb crusted salmon recipe is cooked in its skin so it holds together better, but you can peel the skin off first if you like, or just apply the herbs on one side and peel the skin off when the salmon is cooked. Obviously you should serve it herb crust side up, so it looks more appealing.

Hi, my name is Christine. I am happy you are visiting today. Food is very important to everyone, and in this family we love to eat all kinds of dishes from meat and chicken to international cuisine, crockpot creations and more. Seafood is something we also love, and I love the fact it is nutritious as well as very tasty.

Everyone knows 'the big three' which are cod, tuna and salmon, but sometimes it is fun to try different types of fish, such as perch, trout, monkfish, or even shellfish like mussels or clams. There are seafood recipes for every season and occasion, those served chilled for a refreshing burst of flavor, and those served hot in stew or soup form.

Choose from crispy fried fish, tender pan-fried or poached cuts, or what about a seafood medley boasting the most wonderful flavors of the sea, lake or river? Seafood can be served as part of a salad or savory dish, or it can be served as an appetizer or snack. Bacon-wrapped scallops, anyone? You will find a comprehensive collection of wonderful seafood recipes right here, for your inspiration and enjoyment.

Thanks for visiting,
