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…

Grilled Whole Fish Adobado

Grilled Whole Fish Adobado by John Spottiswood

This is a delicious fish that is one of the most famous dishes of the Jalisco state in Mexico. We've eaten this a few times in restaurants near Puerto Vallarta...and love it! The recipe is adapted from one by Rick Bayless (exec. chef of the Frontera Grill in Chicago), who is one of my favorite chefs.

Simple Himalayan Salt Block Salmon

Simple Himalayan Salt Block Salmon by John Spottiswood

My wife got me a Himalayan Salt Block to try grilling on this summer. We made our first attempt last night with salmon, trying it two ways. This is the first...a very simple effort and very delicious. My instinct with the salt block is that I am going to enjoy simple recipes the best, since they will allow the flavor of the salt…

Grilled Catfish with Red Rice and Lemon Butter

Grilled Catfish with Red Rice and Lemon Butter by Nancy Miyasaki

This is a truly delicious meal. Our kids loved it as much as we did. We made a version of the fish with Lemon pepper because we thought the Creole seasonings would be too hot, but they ended up loving the Creole fish. If you're trying to conserve calories, you can leave off the Lemon Butter and just serve with fresh lemon wedges.…

Teriyaki Glazed Grilled Salmon

Teriyaki Glazed Grilled Salmon by John Spottiswood

This is an excellent basic grilled salmon dish that i adapted from the Cook's Illustrated cookbook. Their recipe calls for maple syrup...which I don't keep on hand and just didn't sound right to me. I substituted a mix of oyster sauce and honey, which I think gives it a more traditional asian flavor than the maple syrup would.…

Morrocan Grilled Salmon by John Spottiswood

This is a flavorful recipe that we adapted from one on Food Network. The addition of cayenne pepper along with extra garlic and cumin give this a more robust flavor than the original recipe. Serve with long grain rice or farro, pita bread, hummus or baba ganoush. Everyone we've served this to has loved it!

Grilled Salmon and Pineapple with Avocado salsa

Grilled Salmon and Pineapple with Avocado salsa by John Spottiswood

None of our kids thought they were going to like the grilled pineapple in this recipe, but they all ended up loving it and we had none left over! The avocado salsa is mild and complements the salmon nicely without over powering it. The dish is beautiful and would be good for entertaining, but the meal is also easy enough for a week…

Senegalese Fish Yassa

Senegalese Fish Yassa by John Spottiswood

I've been a huge fan of Moroccan food for a while, and have begun to expand my horizons into the foods of other African countries. This is the first dish I've tried from Senegal, which has a strong French influence, and it is extraordinary. I made this when my cousin and his wife came to town..and I told them they were my guinea…

Tangy Asian Grilled Salmon

Tangy Asian Grilled Salmon by John Spottiswood

This is another recipe adapted from the Barefoot Contessa. It's super simple and provides a tangy contrast to the sweetness of typical teriyaki sauce. Don't let the Dijon mustard in a supposedly Asian recipe throw you. It's a really nice combination of flavors. We doubled the garlic and reduced the olive oil slightly from the…
