Dover Sole was on sale at the local supermarket, and I felt inspired to try an recreate some of the simple, delicious flat fish dishes while traveling through the Greek Islands. Everyone raved about the outcome. This will take you to Mikonos...whether you've been there before or not!

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…

GOW CHOI GAU – SHRIMP & CHIVES DUMPLINGS

GOW CHOI GAU – SHRIMP & CHIVES DUMPLINGS by Linda Tay Esposito

Gow Choi - Chinese chives are stronger in flavor -- more garlicy taste than regular chives -- than regular chives. The flat-leaf, foot-long green is used as a vegetable rather than used as a herb. In this classic dim sum dish, the chives are mixed with shrimp and stuffed in a a dumpling. The crystal dumpling skin is made from…

Grilled Whole Salmon Indonesian Style

Grilled Whole Salmon Indonesian Style by John Spottiswood

This is an excellent and flavorful way to cook fish that I adapted from the Barbecue Bible. I had a large, whole salmon (not a smaller snapper or pompano as recommended), and was hoping the flavor would be strong enough to impact the Salmon. Boy was I pleasantly surprised! The fish came out delicious and my guests all asked me to…

Thai Basil & Curry Shrimp - Pattaya

Thai Basil & Curry Shrimp - Pattaya by John Spottiswood

This is a delicious curry flavored shrimp stir fry without a heavy curry sauce. The combination of curry and basil is really delicious. This is normally not served very spicy, but you can spice it up as much as you want.

Swai with Lemon-Basil Pesto

Swai with Lemon-Basil Pesto by John Spottiswood

We made this dish with Swai, but it would work equally well with basa, tilapia, catfish, sole, or any other mild and flaky white fish. The pesto is bright and citrusy and contrasts well with the mild, garlicky flavor of the fish. Our kids loved it and all went back for seconds. We served it with fresh artichoke and rice.

Moroccan Broiled Fish Skewers or Fillets

Moroccan Broiled Fish Skewers or Fillets by John Spottiswood

This is a tasty Moroccan dish that you are sure to love. Serve it over salad, cous cous, bulgar pilaf, or white or brown rice. We've used thick white fish but also thinner fish like catfish or tilapia when they are more reasonable. You can't skewer them, but you can broil the whole fillet (see picture). It also works with salmon…

Asian-Style Grilled Black Bass

Asian-Style Grilled Black Bass by John Spottiswood

This fish is simply delicious. The flesh is like butter and the flavor is from heaven. I know that sounds extreme, but it's true. I was in Costco and the fresh fish counter had whole black bass. I'd never made it before, but the woman behind the counter said it is similar to yellowtail (hamachi) which is one of my favorites, so I…
