Appetizing main dish fish from Food & Wine magazine.
Sesame-Crusted Tuna with Ginger CreamThis meaty fish meal is a flavorful delight. The ginger cream sauce is spiked with Sriracha, the spicy red Thai chile sauce.
Grouper with Cucumber Salad and Soy-Mustard DressingA simple salad of julienned cucumbers and carrots tossed with a soy-mustard dressing makes this light fish dish incredibly vibrant.
Fish Tacos with Creamy Lime Guacamole and Cabbage SlawFish tacos are a staple for seafood lovers, but are often beer-battered and fried. This healthier, grilled version enriches the guacamole with low-fat sour cream.
Grilled Halibut with Smashed Fingerlings and Tomato ButterCoat delicate halibut fillets in fresh herbs and grill them until lightly charred. To make a tangy sauce, cook cherry tomatoes in tarragon-infused browned butter until they burst with juice.
Salmon with Shiitake and Red Wine SauceBeef stock and red wine make a luxurious sauce for this salmon recipe.
Grilled Tuna with Smoked-Almond Romesco SauceAdd fabulous smoky flavors to the Catalan sauce romesco by swapping in smoked almonds for the usual plain kind and adding a touch of pimentón de la Vera (powdered, smoked Spanish red peppers).
Grilled Niçoise Tuna SteaksSalade Niçoise is one of the great summer dishes of Southern France. It's the centerpiece of a party that's all about sunny Mediterranean style, from the wine to the plates to the tea towels.
Cod with Artichokes and ChickpeasThis recipe is based on barigoule, a Provençal dish of artichokes, mushrooms and oil. To serve with cod, prepare it with baby artichokes and chanterelles or shiitake mushrooms, which are less pricey than chanterelles.
Lemon-Stuffed Grilled BranzinoThe Good News: Branzino, a European sea bass, is low in fat but has a wonderful richness when cooked on the bone. Stuff the fish with lemons and herbs, then grill it until the skin is browned and crispy to add even more flavor.
Vietnamese-Style Shrimp and Watercress Stir-FryThe fish sauce and peanuts in this seafood stir-fry are hallmarks of Vietnamese cooking. Ample amounts of fresh ginger and lime juice bump up the flavor of the dish.
Creamy Seafood RisottoThis creamy dish calls for shrimp and crab meat, but feel free to use any type of fish you have on hand.
Scallops with Grapefruit and BaconA tangy, buttery white wine and grapefruit sauce with smoky bacon is the perfect accompaniment to sweet sea scallops.
Pop-Open Clams with Horseradish-Tabasco SauceThis seven-ingredient seafood appetizer is super fast and incredibly easy. Simply grill the clams over high heat until they pop open (about 25 seconds), then flip and grill for 20 seconds more. Remove from heat and top with a homemade hot sauce. Serve with grilled crusty white bread and a glass of Sauvignon Blanc.
