Fish

Vietnamese Caramel Trout

This Asian-inspired fish dish is super-simple and easy; the sauce is a lovely spice-sweet combo. Since it’s been a while since we’ve cooked anything with brown sugar (we typically opt for coconut sugar, date paste, or omit the sweetener altogether) we went lighter than the recommended amount in the original […]

 

Veracruz-Style Cod Stew

One of the main things I enjoy about the cookbook, “Tu Casa Mi Casa,” is how it takes me out of my comfort zone of rice, beans, and tacos and enables me to explore a wider array of Mexican cooking. For example, I used to be intimidated to cook fish, […]

 

Fish Sticks (Paleo)

For many people, fish sticks are a staple of childhood; they’re certainly easy to pull from the freezer and bake on a busy weekday evening. Conventional mass-market fish sticks include a lot more than just fish – ingredients like wheat and corn flour, sugar, whey, and canola and/or soybean oil. […]

 

Tuna & Salmon Poke Bowls

If you’re not familiar with Poke, it can best be described as diced raw, marinated fish – often tuna or salmon – which is tossed over rice and topped with vegetables and super-flavorful sauces. The word Poke means “to slice or cut” in Hawaiian. This recipe from Bon Appetit requires […]

 

Fish a la Talla with Grilled Pineapple

This grilled fish entree comes from “Tu Casa Mi Casa” by Enrique Olvera. The adobo sauce is wonderful; I’d describe it as a thick and spicy, sugar-free Mexican ketchup or as a smooth enchilada sauce. The recipe makes more sauce than you need for the snapper, so we’ve been able […]

 

Salmon Dill Burgers

If you’re sick of typical burgers (think beef, turkey, or veggie) then I suggest you give this patty a try. It’s surprisingly tasty, and super-fast prep which makes it ideal for a busy weeknight. We served ours with rice, steamed asparagus, and a green salad. Skip the rice to keep […]

 

Salmon in Almond Cream Sauce

This recipe is adapted from “The Dairy-Free Kitchen” by Ashley Adams. I highly recommend this cookbook for anyone with a dairy allergy. The original recipe called for chicken but we used some lovely Arctic Char instead (we consider Salmon and Arctic Char interchangeable in recipes, and purchase whichever is the […]

 

Georgian Pecan-Crusted Trout

Toasting the pecans before rolling the trout fillets brings out a deeper flavor in the nuts, which partners really nicely with the lightly seasoned almond flour breading. The end result is surprisingly light and flavorful. We found this recipe in “Paleo Comfort Foods” by Julie & Charles Mayfield and we […]
