Whether you’re eating meatless on Fridays because you’re observing Lent, or you just want some delicious and easy fish recipes for weeknight meals, we’ve hauled in a great catch for you. These six easy recipes will take you all the way to Easter.
Mahimahi with Charred Onion, Tomatoes, and Tapenade Vinaigrette: This six-ingredient broiled fish dinner takes just 25 minutes to make (and only 10 of those minutes are hands-on). And it’s pretty and healthy, too.
Fish in Papillote: Cooking fish fillets in parchment keeps them incredibly moist. Foil stands in for parchment in a pinch.
Roasted Halibut with Garlic Sauce: Use store-bought mayonnaise to create an aioli in a flash, then spread it over fish and bake briefly. Add steamed vegetables and crusty bread and your succulent dinner is ready in 25 minutes.
Black Cod with Mushrooms and Sansho Peppers: Cooking buttery black cod in a broth that contains soy, mirin, and mushrooms makes for a meal that shouts “umami!”
Broiled Salmon with Citrus-Yogurt Sauce: While you’re broiling the salmon, make boiled new potatoes and a cucumber salad for a light, springy meal. Not only is this salmon delicious, but the recipe makes enough for a pasta dish for the next day’s meal, too.
Scallion-Crusted Arctic Char: Just three ingredients add up to a surprisingly flavorful main course. Add rice and spinach to complete the picture.
