Restaurant-worthy whole fish dinners certainly look intimidating, but they're actually pretty easy to create in the comfort of your own kitchen (if you know what you're doing, of course). Whether you're in the mood for snapper (we love this Whole Roasted Red Snapper with Potatoes and Onions), branzino (fresh citrus brightens up the mild fish in this recipe), or something else (Grilled Trout with Cherry Compote, anyone?), you're going to want to bookmark this collection of impressive whole fish recipes.
These easy sides perfectly complement fish dinners. Whether you're planning to feast on salmon (try these deceptively simple Haricots Verts with Warm Shallot Vinaigrette), tilapia (you'll love these Orange-Tarragon Sheet Pan Roasted Vegetables), or something else (if all else fails, you can't go wrong with Super-Crispy Oven Fries), these fish side dishes are sure to impress.
With their myriad of delicious toppings and homemade sauces, fish tacos are a flavorful way to take advantage of mild, budget-friendly fish (like tilapia) or fish you caught yourself and tucked away in the freezer. They're also a healthy alternative to tacos featuring ground beef or steak, and an easy way to work fish into your weekly meal rotation.
