Simple Pan-fried Fish with Indian Spices

Simple Pan-fried Fish with Indian Spices by John Spottiswood

This is a simple dish I throw together with fresh white fish fillets (typically Swai, Tilapia, Catfish, or Orange Roughy). It's easy to make and our whole family loves it. I know it seems crazy to give this four and a half stars, but it's a really great combination of flavors. Try this with rice and a vegetable side dish or salad,…

This is an easy recipe that you can prepare in advance and bake right before dinner. It's truly delicious, if not exactly low fat. Make sure to give it a squeeze of fresh lemon just before serving!

Salmon Baked in Foil

Salmon Baked in Foil by John Spottiswood

This is a simple recipe but it is really delicious. What I love about it is that it has enough flavor to make any adult's mouth water, but our kids still say "this is out favorite salmon!" This is flavorful enough to go well with a simple side like brown or white rice, or a simple parmesan and butter pasta. Don't forget to pour…

Killer Shrimp

Killer Shrimp by John Spottiswood

Nancy and I loved eating at this hole in the wall restaurant in Marina Del Ray called Killer Shrimp. It was in a strip mall and didn't have much character, but their "killer" shrimp drew a loyal crowd. I recently heard that it had closed, so I've tried to recreate it with help from a few others who have tried. I think what most the…

St. Patrick's Day Salmon with Leeks

St. Patrick's Day Salmon with Leeks by John Spottiswood

This recipe was also adapted from Margaret Johnson, a great Irish American author and chef. The flavor of the leeks and salmon together is just amazing. And it's a really easy dish. A complete winner!

Salmon with Indian Spices, poached in oil

Salmon with Indian Spices, poached in oil by John Spottiswood

I love salmon and am always looking for creative ways to make it. This is the first time I've tried it with Indian spices and poached in oil (adapted from a recipe in Fine Cooking). Honestly, I thought it was just fabulous. The spices and the cooking method combined made it one of the best salmon dishes I have had. It is amazingly…

Cilantro Shrimp

Cilantro Shrimp by Nancy Miyasaki

This is a simple and absolutely delicious stir-fry shrimp dish. I've been looking for something easy and tasty like this. I have a new staple! I used a red chile sauce that we had on hand instead of the sambal oelek, and I added it selectively after stir frying to my husbands and my plates, but not to the kids plates. It was…

Fish Batter

Fish Batter by Micheline

This homemade batter is light and fluffy and perfect to coat your favourite fish fillets. Tastes like the crispy fish usually found in good fish and chips restaurants. The secret ingredient in this batter is the vinegar, added just before you are ready to coat the fish fillets.

Miso Salmon (Dengaku)

Miso Salmon (Dengaku) by Nancy Miyasaki

This is a wonderful, mildly flavored dish. Japanese food is comfort food for me, and nothing goes down more smoothly than this dish. The sweet and salty miso glaze brings out the best in the salmon without overpowering it. Our kids love it too!

Tilapia Broiled Egyptian Style

Tilapia Broiled Egyptian Style by John Spottiswood

We adopted this recipe from our Egyptian babysitter in San Francisco named Hoda. We came to her house once to pick up our son and were greeted by the most amazing smell! She invited us to take a bite of the tilapia she had cooked. We were smitten. It was the first broiled, then soaked, recipe we had tasted, and it is still one of…

Mexican Garlic Broiled Tilapia

Mexican Garlic Broiled Tilapia by John Spottiswood

I love the lime-garlic flavored fish that I get when I'm down in Mexico, especially in Puerto Vallarta. Normally it is grilled down there, but I think the recipe on the broiler does an even better job. The fish stays very moist, but still gets a little crispy on top from the broiler. The lemon-garlic-butter flavor is to die for. My…

Garlic & Lemon Butter Shrimp

Garlic & Lemon Butter Shrimp by Nancy Miyasaki

This recipe for pan searing shrimp is one of my favorites. I adapted it from a Cooks Illustrated recipe. It is full of flavor and the shrimp will come out brown and slightly caramelized if you pan sear them as described. We tried two different recipes the same night and compared side by side. This was the consensus, but not…

Filetti di pesce all'acqua pazza

Filetti di pesce all'acqua pazza by Frank Fariello

Acqua pazza, or 'crazy water' is the humorous term for an extremely easy, but tasty way to poach fish--or, more specifically, to the poaching liquid.
