Recipes

Cod Puttanesca

Puttanesca is said to have been named for the spicy “working ladies” of Naples. This potent sauce packs a spicy-salty punch of garlic, capers, olives, anchovy paste, and pepper flakes. Adding cod is a great low-calorie way to get more protein in this dish, plus it’s an excellent source of vitamin B12, and a good source of niacin, vitamin B6, and omega-3 fatty acids.

Crispy Cod Cakes with Rémoulade

There are a couple of factors to consider when making fish cakes. First is the type of filler. We found that the combination of cooked russet potatoes and panko bread crumbs works the best. Once the cakes are formed, it’s essential to let them chill before sautéing. This tightens up the eggs’ protein strands so all the ingredients bind together. In fact, you can chill them for several hours or even overnight, making this a great make-ahead recipe.

Olive Oil-Poached Cod

This simple technique yields buttery, succulent fish in practically no time at all — a weeknight dinner savior. And you don’t have to worry about overcooking your fish when you poach it in olive oil. Plus, when you steep the oil before poaching, it takes on tons of flavor that’s easily absorbed by the fish.

Niçoise Pasta Salad with Basil Dressing

Niçoise Pasta Salad is a quick dish that allows you to use whatever veggies your heart desires with a little pasta added to bulk up the salad and make it a little more filling. With a dairy-free, pesto-like dressing full of fresh basil, this is totally worthy of dinner salad status on your weekly meal plan.

Spicy Orange Fish Fillets

Eating more fish just got easier with this simple 20-minute dinner. A three-ingredient basting sauce breathes new life into thick fish fillets, and once you get a taste of them you’ll be hooked. This healthy recipe has almost no fat, but is still full of flavor from the sauce — a little sweet from honey and orange juice and as spicy as you like from sambal oelek.

Sambal oelek is a condiment that’s often used in Malaysian and Indonesian cuisines. The basic blend is a mixture of chiles, vinegar, brown sugar, and salt.

Sautéed Halibut with Bacon-Praline Sauce

If you’re a lover of fish dishes, then this one needs to be on your radar. Even “non-fishionados” will like this dinner recipe. The reason is the sweet praline [PRAHleen] sauce. It highlights the sweetness of the fresh fish. Halibut is perfect for this recipe, but if it’s not available, grouper, sea bass, or snapper will work just as well. As with any seafood recipe though, true success hinges on the quality of the fish, so seek out whatever is freshest.

Cod Chowder

Spoon after spoon, with its creamy and briny broth, tender bites of cod, Yukon gold potatoes, and savory pork belly, this New England classic Cod Chowder is as all-American as apple pie. Just be sure to look for fillets that are a uniform 1-inch thickness, before cutting into good-sized chunks. This helps to ensure that the fish stays moist and doesn’t cook too quickly.

Sweet Corn & Pancetta Salad with Steelhead Trout

The combination of corn, pancetta, and trout is a match made in heaven. This dinner salad for two is quick to put together, but fancy enough for company. Just scale up the recipe to fit the amount of servings you need.

Swordfish Kebabs with Garlic Parsley Sauce

With an abundance of fresh vegetables alongside lean protein, kebabs are a healthy way to enjoy the charred goodness of grilling. These skewers with large pieces of tender swordfish, zucchini ribbons, and baby potatoes, are served with a vibrant green herb sauce. For the most sustainable choice, and according to SeafoodWatch.org, look for swordfish caught in the Atlantic using harpoons, handlines, or hand-operated pole-and-lines.

Southwestern Tuna Melt Quesadillas

What do you get when you combine two favorites — a tuna melt and a quesadilla? An absolutely delicious and easy weeknight lunch or dinner that can be on the table in 30 minutes or less.

Cuisine Poke Bowl

A Hawaiian staple, poke bowls are inherently nutrient-packed. Thanks to superfoods like heart-healthy fish, vegetables, and seaweed, these bowls are as nutritious as they are satisfying. Salmon, the star of our poke bowl, is another great source of healthy fats. Wild-caught salmon offers a generous amount of omega-3 fatty acids, which have been found to reduce risks of heart disease. Simple and satisfying, the poke bowl is also packed with fiber thanks to the brown rice, edamame, and avocado.

And for the finishing touch, a sprinkle of furikake not only adds umami flavor, but also offers various nutrients too. Thanks to the dried seaweed, furikake is a good source of vitamin B12, fatty acids, and an assortment of minerals.

Grilled Halibut with Sweet-Smoked Rub

Fish is great for weeknight dinners because it takes little time to prep and cooks quickly. It's especially great for summer because you can throw it on the grill and avoid heating up your kitchen.

Halibut is a mild-flavored, firm-fleshed fish that easily takes on the flavors in sauces and rubs like the sweet-and-smoky spices added here. Though halibut is preferred, any firm white fish works well. Just be sure to brush a clean grill grate with oil to prevent the fish from sticking.
