Also--the type of fish makes a big difference.

Go for tuna or swordfish on the grill.

Mahi mahi in the oven with peppers and onions and a little olive oil and lemon slices.

Flakier white fish, like tilapia or cod is good in a saute pan, with some veggies, lemon or lime juice and spices.

My favorite fish is salmon. I brush it with a little olive oil, Monterey Steak seasoning--in the oven for about 10-15 minutes at 350. Then, I top with a serving of soft goat cheese and continue to cook for another 10 minutes or so. Delicious!

If you are buying cheaper fish, like whiting--I think it always comes out soggy.

those fish tacos and fish cakes are excellent ideas. but I find the most desirable way of preparing any type of fish, fresh or frozen is on the grill. marinated in a little olive oil and citrus, italian dressing or store bought marinades for a few minutes and directly on the hot grill prepared by spraying with non-stick cooking spray. do not bother it until fish begins to flake, turn once and enjoy. indoor, outdoor, electric, gas or charcoal grill, all are great, even in the oven under the broiler. ( I don't bother to thaw)

Aside from those living in areas near places where fish are caught; most fish sold in grocery stores has been at least partially frozen; so buying frozen fish shouldn't make a big difference. Try switching brands of frozen fish. I haven't had any problems with the brands I've used (walmart, various sam's club options, kroger, tom thumb etc); you do have to let it defrost in the fridge or under water since thawing in the micro will cook it.

2 medium boiled potatoes that you have mashed into 1 cup
1 small onion minced onion
1 green bell pepper chopped
2 ribes of celery chopped
2 tablespoons butter
3 1/2 cups fish that has been flaked or chopped
4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 heaping teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
salt & black pepper to taste
2 eggs
1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Spray Pam on two baking sheets that you have lined with foil

Saute onion, green bell pepper and celery in butter over medium high heat until tender. Turn heat to low and fold in flaked fish.

Slowly mix in flour, cheese, Old Bay seasoning, salt, pepper, 1 cup mashed potatoes and 2 eggs.

Mix gently but thoroughly. Remove pan from heat.

With floured hands shape batter into cakes , should make 12 of them.

Coat both sides with breadcrumbs.

Bake them for 10 minutes, flip the cakes and bake another 15 minutes until golden brown.

*** You can also pan fry these in Butter Pam if you like . Just fry until golden ***

I find using frozen fish an easy way to create a fast and health meal. Last week i created a great dish by taking semi frozen cod fillets and spreading dijon mustard on them, then pat the mustard side into a bowl of bread crumbs. I like to use Panko (a japanese bread crumb) because it comes out a little crispier. Then bake the fillets in a pan in the oven. Great flavour and crispy on top!

I agree with a previous tacos are a good way to go because you be really creative and incorporate fresh ingredients that you might not have gotten in your meal plan that day. emoticon

I married someone who had several shelves of frozen filets. I prefer fresh fish but these had to be used or tossed.
I used them up in fish cakes. It's my salmon cake recipe but using the frozen fish filets.

1.5 cups of fish
1 egg
cup of mirepoix (celery, onion, carrot, previously sauteed and ready to use)
Lemon-pepper spice combination or Old Bay or other spice preferences

Combine fish and egg and puree with hand blender until creamy and uniform in color.
Add mirepoix (more can be added)
Sprinkle with lemon-pepper spice
Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes
Preheat skillet and some olive oil until hot. Fry.
Can also be baked depending on rest of meal.

I have frozen fish that needs to be used. I also want to incorporate more fish into my diet. I like the idea of the fish packets in the oven :)

I need all the support and motivation that I can get!

on spark recips they have the fish in packets or foil. they are good. you put veggies on the bottom of foil, then fish, then a sauce of some sort. then seal packet so the fish steams and nothing escapes. then cook in over or grill 20 min. open packet. carefully because steam will excape. perfect fish

I make fish tacos with frozen fish! I thaw it in the fridge, pat it dry, then prepare it like I do regular tacos but substitute the fish. It breaks apart and is perfect for tacos. My 3 year old loves them! emoticon

Filets - You can marinate you filet in little greek yogurt + pepper + salt+ a tsp peanut sauce (optional)+ginger-garlic paste for about 15-30min. In a baking pan keep the filet(s). Add shredded onion and red bel pepper. Bake at about 350-375 for about 20-30 minutes.
I am Indian and eat spicy food, so I add turmeric+red chilly powder instead of pepper.
Another marination batter you can try- egg+bread crumbs+pepper+salt+garlic powder+any herbs you like.
Hope that helps emoticon

Well, I live in a small town in rural Iowa, and the only fish I have readily available is frozen. I can buy the processed, frozen fillets or sticks, or flash frozen fish. I have been trying for awhile to include more fish in my family's diet, however, I just can't get the frozen fish to taste good at all! It's soggy when I take it out of the bag, so I pat it dry with paper towels. I've tried multiple recipes, baking, sauteing, frying, no matter what I do it is either overcooked and dry, or undercooked and inedible. We can barely choke it down! Help! What am I doing wrong? Or is this just normal with frozen fish? Any suggestions or tricks would be greatly appreciated!
