Fish and Seafood Recipes

Fresh fish, <a href="/recipes/seafood/shrimp/">shrimp</a>, <a href="/recipes/seafood/crab/">crab</a> and <a href="/recipes/seafood/lobster/">lobster</a> taste like the ocean, with a briny sweetness that's meant to be enhanced, not overpowered -- so the best recipes keep things light. When you're buying seafood, seek out firm flesh, bright eyes, and above all, that clean, sweet scent of the sea (yes, we're suggesting you smell the fish before you buy). Then, once you bring it home, well ... leave it alone. Sure, sprinkle it with a bit of fresh lemon juice, a drizzle of clarified butter, and some fragrant fresh herbs. Even hearty fish and/or <a href="/recipes/seafood/soups/fish-chowder/">clam chowders</a> are straightforward, with fish stock and heavy cream creating a rich base for the seafood. Because fresh fish should always be the star of the show - treat it like a diva.

Grilled Fish Tacos

From Fine Cooking Books

A grilled fish taco is a beautiful thing to eat. San Diego and points south are where they originated. Although many of the fish tacos in the area are fried, the grilled ones really stand out and are much lighter. Meredith Deeds grew up in San Diego and taught me the ins and outs of the fish taco. These are an adaptation of her mom's recipe.
