By request...

Sorry, ladies, but for the most part I wing it with fish; I rarely use a recipe. We usually eat salmon or tilapia because it's inexpensive and not too strong in flavor. My kids rarely catch anything worth eating, but when they do we pan fry it in cornmeal. Here's what I do:

Grilled Fish

1. Soak fish in a teriyaki marinade for 15 minutes before grilling on foil (don't turn it).


2. Brush fish with melted butter and sprinkle with either a citrus grilling spice (mine's from Sam's Club) or with salt, pepper, any herb of your choice and garlic, then grill as above.

Pan Sauteed Fish

Heat a mixture of a couple tablespoons each butter and olive or grape seed oil in a heavy pan. Coat fish with a mixture of 1/2 cup cornmeal and 2 Tbs. Old Bay Seasoning and saute, turning once. Serve with tarter sauce or cocktail sauce.

Baked Fish

1. Over low heat, melt a couple tablespoons of butter with a clove or two of garlic, a bit of salt and pepper, an herb of your choice and a dash of paprika. When it comes to a boil, turn it off. Brush a bit on the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan, place fish on top, and pour the rest of the butter mixture over the fish. Bake at 350 for about 13-15 minutes. Take it out when it flakes. Don't over cook it.

2. You can also bake a teriyaki fish.

Salmon is really good poached, especially with a cream sauce, but I've never done it myself. I'm sure there are plenty of good recipes on line.

So there ya have it!
