    Default Your Favorite Way To Prepare Fish & What Kind?


    For those of you in here that like fish, how do you like to prepare it?

    What kind of fish do you prefer buying and cooking, or maybe you are a
    fisherman and go out and catch your own?

    If you have a special recipe for fish, please do share it with the
    others in the group.

    My dad was a commercial fisherman, so I grew up on fish. Mom would cook
    it when it was still practically wiggling! To this day, I don't care
    for fish that has been frozen, but living where we do, fresh fish is
    readily available for sale year around. We mostly eat Wild Alaska King
    Salmon, Ling Cod, Rock Fish and halibut. Hubby fishes for trout at his
    cabin, and also Hooligan and Sockeye Salmon, but that is seasonal.

    I wish I had a better appetite for fish. [sigh]

    My first time dining in public amongst adults was at a fish restaurant
    called "Sweets" on the fish market end of town in NYC, somewhere. I was
    maybe five years old, I had pan fried halibut, served floating in butter. I
    loved it!!!

    I'm not a big fish eater but when I eat it, I like halibut. My mom
    taught me a way to bake it where it's raised on a rack over a baking
    sheet after being coated with bread crumbs. It doesn't need flipping so
    the breading stays in place.

    It seems to me that halibut is one of the fish that would do well in
    parchment paper...

    Jill's Stuffed Flounder

    4 flounder fillets, about 1-1/2 lbs. of like size
    1/4 c. minced onion
    1/4 c. minced celery
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1-1/2 Tbs. mayonnaise
    dash Tabasco sauce
    dash cayenne pepper
    dash salt
    4 Tbs. butter
    1/2 c. dried breadcrumbs
    1/4 tsp. dry mustard
    1 Tbs. lemon juice
    6 oz. flaked crabmeat
    2 oz. diced shrimp (or use canned salad shrimp, well drained)
    2-3 Tbs. melted butter
    Sweet ground paprika for colour
    1/2 c. milk
    vegetable cooking spray

    Preheat oven to 350F. Saute onion, celery and garlic in 4 Tbs. butter until
    translucent. Transfer to a mixing bowl and combine with breadcrumbs,
    mayonnaise, dry mustard. Add crabmeat and shrimp, Tabasco, cayenne,
    lemonjuice, salt, pepper. Blend well to make stuffing. Spray a 13X9 inch
    baking dish with vegetable cooking spray.

    Place 2 flounder fillets in the dish. Spoon the crabmeat stuffing onto the
    center of the fillets, mounding it up in the center. Split the remaining
    fillets in half lengthwise.

    Wrap each of the two halves around the stuffing on top of the stuffed
    fillet, covering the sides but leaving the stuffing visible in the center.
    Secure overlapping ends with toothpicks if needed. Brush all over with
    melted butter. Sprinkle with paprika. Pour the milk around the fish (this
    keeps the fish moist during baking). Bake for 20-25 minutes until fish
    flakes easily with a fork, brushing with melted butter about halfway through
    cooking. Serves 2 very generously.

    NOTE: Works well with any mild white fish fillets

    Sablefish is best smoked, it's also pricey.

    As stated I'm not much of a fish eater, but I love fish stuffed the way
    you wrote. I like all sorts of other seafood so crabmeat is a winner.
    I think I remember too much about fish with tiny bones that you have to
    pick out. Similar to why I don't like picking and eating crabs at crab
    feasts. Too much picking through the icky stuff. The crab I like is
    mostly snow crab leg clusters.

    I don't know anything about sablefish, but Hooligan are very similar to
    Smelt. I'm not fond of small fish, mainly because of the tiny bones!
    Hubby likes the Hooligan smoked, and our nephew has a smoke house, and
    will smoke them for half the catch. He does a good job, and when smoked,
    the bones chew up just fine. I don't even know they are even there, as
    just "crunch" right up.

    I love fish, and we usually have some kind of fresh fish at least once a
    week, as it's so good for a person, and is so much that you can do with
    it.

    My favorite way to eat halibut, is coated in a beer batter and deep
    fried, but with us being older now, we need to watch our cholesterol
    closer, so only have it deep fried on a rare occasion..last evening
    being one, and it was heavenly!

    Another GREAT baked halibut dish is the following one:

    2-1/2 to 3 lbs. halibut, cut in serving size pieces
    2 cups white wine
    1 cup sour cream
    1 c. mayonnaise
    1 cup chopped onion
    cracker crumbs

    Soak halibut in white wine for 2 hours. Pat fish dry and roll halibut
    pieces in cracker crumbs and lay flat in greased 9 x 13 inch baking pan.
    Mix sour cream, mayonnaise and onion together and spread over breaded
    fish. Sprinkle some extra cracker crumbs over fish and bake at 500
    for 15 minutes (thicker pieces may need a little longer) until golden
    brown and flaky. NOTE: Can also sprinkle top with some paprika, which I
    often do.

    I mostly fry in butter.

    I like the thinner steelhead fried hard in teriyaki sauce with a little
    added brown sugar, get that caramelization going on.

    Shrimp my favorite, made many ways.

    Walleyed pike fried in butter.

    Bluegills in butter, one of the best.

    I have that one down. Here:

    1.5 lbs black cod

    brine:

    2 cups water
    1/6 cup salt
    1/6 cup raw brown sugar
    < 1/2 t cardamom
    < 1 t nutmeg
    < 1 t allspice
    small amount white pepper

    brine for 6 hours in refrigerator, rinse, cure for
    12 hours in refrigerator

    cold smoke until done (3 hours is best, 2 hours is acceptable)


    Note in the above "rinse" means rinse under running water for
    a solid five minutes.

    For some reason, fried Alaska halibut is both my favorite fried fish,
    and my favorite way to eat halibut. It just happens to be a fish
    that fries up real good. And since I don't want to do that too often,
    I restrict my fried-fish eating to a couple times a year, and then
    it's halibut.

    Beer batter's a little soggy for me so I use a mainly egg-white batter.
    I've tried buttermilk but it darkens too much in the time it takes
    to fry the fish. I guess it's the milk sugar that is over-browning.

    I agree, it is a wonderful fish to enjoy just plain fried, and also
    broiled, but one has to be careful not to over cook it, as then it
    becomes dry, but that's the same for all fish.

    The beer batter coating shouldn't be soggy, if prepared right. When I
    have fixed it here at home, I dump a bottle of beer into a bowl and add
    enough Bisquick baking mix to make a thin batter (also adding a little
    lemon-pepper) and I dip the chunks of halibut into it and let them sit
    awhile to dry slightly on waxed paper, before submerging them in the hot
    peanut oil. I don't like the batter thick, where have more coating than
    fish.

    My hubby likes steelhead, but he just fries them. The way you do it
    sounds interesting. Does it fry up well enough, that you can eat bones
    and all? That's the reason I'm not so fond of trout, as I never can seem
    to just peel that backbone out in one piece...invariably I will end up
    swallowing one of those little bones!

    >Shrimp my favorite, made many ways.


    Agree! Shrimp is probably my most favorite seafood of all, but I also
    love fresh King Crab...that is food fit for a king!

    >Walleyed pike fried in butter.


    >Bluegills in butter, one of the best.


    Never had Walleye, or Bluegills. I don't think they are caught in the
    waters around Alaska.

    My favorite is Brodetto Ancona, which is actually brodetto made with
    all small fish ie, whatever small fish is the "catch of the day".

    Goatfish, little basses and cods, small cuttlefish and soles or small
    turbots, mackerels, anchovies, sardines, etc... , with some shrimp
    and calamari or squids.

    All cooked with parsley and garlic in a tomato juice with a bit of
    white-wine vinegar.

    Pretty broad question. We eat fish often--all kinds of fish and
    cooked in many different ways. Probably the most frequent is salmon,
    cooked in a fiery-hot skillet with just enough oil to coat the bottom
    of the pan. Four minutes on the first side, don't touch or move it,
    turn over for 3 to 4 minutes. Salt 'n pepper. Lemon wedges. It
    ranges from that simple all the way to coulibiac. -aem

    My two favorites are salmon and halibut.
    To prepare the salmon, just saute in butter and add lemon at the end.

    This is my favorite halibut dish:
