Although I love fresh salmon grilled, I also enjoy using frozen salmon in recipes from Glorious One Pot Meals cookbook. Here's a link to Sesame Soy Salmon, it includes rice, salmon and sauce, and lots of veggies (red cabbage, carrots, avocado, and I usually add mushrooms and snow peas) www.justmommies.com/articles/sesame-soy-sa
lmon.shtml


Per the book it is 874 calories at 2 servings, but that is WAY too big a serving for me. The recipe makes 4 servings at slightly under 450 calories for a full meal

I also like the lemon rosemary salmon from the same author (Elizabeth Yarnell), it is 276 calories and makes 2 servings -- salmon, red potatoes, asparagus, and yellow squash

ADVENTURESEEKER is the right way for me too. I use my no fat Foreman grill, I usually use flounder fillets, or halibut steaks. I just wipe down the grill with Olive oil, add a little bit of Jane's crazy salt, and a pinch of blackened fish powder. Moist, tasty, and never boring to eat!

Just yesterday I had a seriously delicious wrap with cooked spiced haddock and rice noodles. I didn't make it but I never would have thought to put fish and noodles in a wrap!

Love parchment paper--I bake just about everything on parchment paper.

There are lots of complicated instructions out there for how to wrap fish in parchment paper--really, all you have to do is to wrap it around the fish and then roll up the edges. Put the packet seam-side down on the baking sheet. Give it a try--it's easy and really tasty.

I'm a southern girl and my quick response would be to fry it. I know it may not be the healthiest way to eat fish, but it tastes so good. I had gone years without eating fish because when I'd gone to the UK & Ireland, we ate a lot of broiled fish. That didn't sit well with me at all. When I went to Canada in 2010, I finally ate some Haddock (fried of course) after 13 years of not eating fish. It was so good and very filling. Two huge pieces. Think about the two pieces you'd get at Long John Silvers (yes, I know, not healthy), well what I got in Canada would equal 4 pieces of what you get at Long John Silvers.

Thanks for your ideas.
I like to use the parchment method because it makes clean up easy and I steam my veggies along with the fish. Bake and eat emoticon

I have a go to for each: salmon, talapia and shrimp. All super easy.

Salmon I place the filet in a olive oil sprayed skillet and pour 1/4 c orange juice, 2 tbs maple syrup, 1/2 tsp chopped ginger and 2 tsp soy sauce over them. Off the heat I let it sit for about 20 minutes.
Then turn the heat on medium and let cook, turning once, for about 10 minutes. The sauce will cook down and thicken. I serve with a spinach salad that has orange segments.


Talapia I place in an olive oil sprayed skillet over medium high heat, sprinkle with thyme, salt, pepper and let cook, undisturbed for 3 minutes. Turn fillets, sprinkle with fresh lemon juice, cover and remove from heat. It will finish cooking in a few minutes while you put the rest of dinner on the table. We frequently have whole wheat cous cous and a salad with this.
This cooking method is actually from Prevention Magazine and can be used on any type of fish, adjusting the initially cooking time for the thickness of the fish.


Shrimp I marinade for about 20 minutes in hot chili powder, garlic, lime juice, olive oil, salt, pepper, rosemary and cilantro - a little or a lot of each or to your liking. Then pour into a very hot skillet and stir fry for 3 minutes - no more. I serve this over brown rice and with broccoli.

Thanks to whoever mentioned capers and white fish. I've had a jar of capers sitting on a shelf for ages and kept forgetting to use it.

A couple of days ago I sauteed some cod with olive oil, garlic, a teaspoon of capers, green onions, mushrooms and some grape tomatoes cut in half--simple but AMAZING!

I roast fresh pineapple (cut into chunks) for 15 min. at 375 degrees in the oven with lime zest, lime juice, some cumin, and a little honey. After that is cooled, I add 1/2 diced sweet onions and 1/4 cup chopped cilantro. I top my broiled fish with the pineapple salsa and it is amazing!

I bake it for 15mins @ 425 with a lemon dill sauce. I've also tried grilling with veggies and I've put it in a salad. I like baking it the best, but I'm curious to see what the other posters do... so good question!

Frozen (or fresh I'm sure) Basa fillets smeared with pesto and grilled on the George Foreman grill. That and salmon- baked with dill and lemon or grilled on the George Foreman with dill and lemon.

My husband was grilling hamburgers the other day and they were like 330 calories EACH. Just the beef patty! So I asked if he would throw a salmon filet on the grill for me (110 calories!). He thawed it and grilled it for the same amount of time that he grilled the frozen patties. It was perfect!!!

I get this package of salmon filets at Walmart that come individually wrapped and frozen, no skin and no bones. I've baked them in the oven too with some oil, salt and pepper. But no oil needed on the grill!

Depending on the type of fish it is, I usually marinate my fish for about 30 minutes using a blend of spices like cumin, coriander, fresh ginger & garlic, Mrs Dash (original), curry and Worcestershire sauce. Then I sautee the fish on a pan using olive oil, once the fish has become golden on one side, I flip it to the other side. Then I pop it in the oven at 400 degrees for about 8 minutes or so. You'll end up with a flavorful fish that isn't too soggy, but flavorful. This method usually goes great with wild sockeye salmon (steak or fillets), tuna steaks, swordfish, halibut, tilapia, marlin, etc. I rarely ever eat haddock, Pollock, white fish types as they are very hard to flavor & usually ruin the fish experience for me.

Grilling the fish is always a great option instead of sauteing.

I read this on a spark recipe page and it is the best for salmon:
place your fillet skin side down in a baking pan (I use a glass 9x13 for the big salmon fillets I buy at Sam's club) and bake for 1 hour or till 165 degrees on a thermometer at 200 degrees. use any seasoning you wish, but it is good naked!! My husband would balk at salmon; now he asks if I shop at a new store because the salmon is delicious! Tender, not dry, and very flavorful. baste if you wish with lemon, soy sauce, teriyaki, or a fat free Italian dressing before cooking, but I usually bake it without!

If hunger is not the problem then food is not the solution

I eat fish probably 3-4 days a week. I love to blacken cod, salmon, and flounder. It is easy and low calorie. I make my own seasoning which has no sodium. I combine 1 tsp each olive oil and butter to sauté the fish and that fat is split among 12 oz fish.

Salmon- you can make a glaze with honey mustard and soy sauce that is pretty good.

Tilapia I broil for a total of 6 min. and put a parmesan topping for the last two. It is one of my all times favorite.

My name is Chakara, I live in Ohio.

I'm not a fan of salmon, but fluke or flounder - now we're talking! My favorite is as a piccata or fish tacos, but I love it broiled or pan fried as well.

I'm not a fan of baked fish, so I have found that I can fry in my non-stick skillet without oil and it gives me the texture of fish that I like. I have also invested in a indoor counter top grill to give me the grilled fish that I have come to like.

I season with whatever combination of spices that I have in my cabinet from tarragon and rosemary to poultry seasoning, salt and pepper. I have cooked it with black bean, corn salsa also.

I am trying new ways.

I am a fish lover as long as it is not baked, or soft and mushy.... emoticon

I agree with the parchment paper method of baking fish. I use a recipe from Chef Meg, but I had to modify it for foil, instead. I couldn't get the parchment to seal. No matter how I folded it, it kept popping open. Foil doesn't do that. I have also grilled it on the George Foreman grill. My husband knows how to sautee it, but I'll stick to baking it. :)

Something I learned to love in Central America - lightly pan fried in a little olive oil or a dab of butter and a squeeze of lime. I'm actually having some triggerfish tonight prepared that way with a side of mango black bean salsa. You can also broil the fish with a squeeze of lime juice instead of frying, if you're really looking to cut back on fats.

Bluegrass jambalaya from sparkpeople cookbook with smoked salmon or white fish instead of the sausage! Hubby likes to rub salmon with fresh minced garlic, fresh rosemary, lemon or line zest and follow with juice of citrus, foil packet then toss it on the bbq.

S - Start slowly, set yourself up for success
T - Try new things, don't say you can't do something or don't like something before you have tried it.
A - Add movement everywhere, walking farther, calf raises while waiting in line, etc.
R - Realize that you are human & will make mistakes
T- Take time to recognize your successes - celebrate!

God, grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to change the one I can and the wisdom to know it's me.

One I really like especially if you don't have a lot of time

in a large oven proof casserole dish put 2 cups of water 1 cup brown rice (or other whole grains, I like to mix different types of rice & grains)

add spice if you like and/or lemon juice

cover in a layer of frozen mixed veggies (what ever type you like)

place frozen fish fillets on top

cover

cook in oven on 350 degrees for about 45 minutes or until the fish is tender

Dip a fish filet such as tilapia, catfish, or haddock in milk, then coat with corn flake crumbs. Sprinkle seasoning of choice on top, such as garlic, parsley, salt and pepper. Spray an oven proof dish, such as ceramic or Teflon pan with cooking spray. Preheat oven to 375 and bake for 20-25 minutes depending on the thickness of the fish.

For salmon I mix light mayonnaise with a little Dijon mustard and Parmesan cheese. Spread on fish and bake.
I also like cod or tilapia baked with a little butter or olive oil, squeeze of lemon, and Mrs. Dash lemon pepper seasoning. Then bake.

Never give up.

Believe it or not, I buy my fish pre-portioned in those "live forever" cryo packs.

I just boil the cryo pack and voila! perfect fish.

My absolute favorite way to make Salmon is in stir fry. Treat it as you would chicken.
You'll need:
-A large skillet or wok as it makes alot.
-2-4 Tablespoons Olive Oil (which is not alot since it's split by the whole family)
- Salmon chunks (1 inch or so, stir too soon and they'll fall apart, which does not matter, they'll taste the same)
-Bag of Cole Slaw Mix (shredded green and red cabbage and carrots)
-About a head of broccoli (I like to cut the florets into bite size pieces)
-Red or Yellow bell pepper
-1-2 ribs Celery (if it's on hand, if not, I skip it)
-Teriyaki Sauce (I believe Mrs. Dash makes a salt free, shop around for the best choice)

Cook the Salmon until just done. Add veggies. Sometimes I put a lid on to get the veggies to cook down faster by steam. Add desired amount of sauce to taste.

I serve it over brown rice but if you're trying to lower starchy carbs or just trying to stretch a buck, stir the rice into the pan. You won't need as much.

I've never tried freezing. It reheats well. And like soup taste even better the next day!

This can be changed up with different types of veggies (bean spouts, bamboo shoots, fresh green beans) or fish and can be dolled up by sprinkling green onion, sesame seeds, or peanuts on top. Enjoy!

Thanks for Listenin'

I found this out completely by accident. I brought out what I thought was the bag of mixed seafood, turns out after it has thawed out that it was flounder. Well, I was going to make seafood spaghetti, had the pasta sauce and noodles out, decided to go ahead and fix the fish! I thoroughly cooked the fish, it flaked up nicely and stirred in the sauce, poured over the noodles, even the daughter that "hates" fish said you couldn't tell it was fish!

KKKAREN - your grouper sounds delish! I'll have to try that.
I had some grouper at RL a few days ago that was grilled (or broiled?) and served with a lemon-garlic butter. Oh.. it was SO good! I nearly had to fight my DH for the leftovers! LOL

I like Grouper but most white fish works for this. Make a mixture, equal parts of mayo and Parmesan cheese, squeeze in a half of one lemon. Make enough of this mixture to cover your fish with approximately a 1/4 inch of this. Bake for as long as your fish needs then broil to give it a bubbly brown top (a couple of minutes). You can also do this on chicken.

I often put salsa on tilapia and wrap it in parchment paper and bake it in the oven. It's really good that way!

Sprinkle taco seasoning on tilapia and bake about 10 minutes.
Wrap it up in a whole wheat tortilla, add some cabbage, tomato and salsa.
Healthy fish tacos!

Try a Mediterranean fish stew cooked on top of hob. Saute onions, celery, crushed garlic and mixed-coloured bell peppers in a tiny bit of olive oil; add quartered fresh tomatoes (and sliced baby new potatoes too if you like, which is delicious but adds to the calorie count) and fish stock and simmer; add fish, chopped into largish chunks (use just one variety or a mixture, e.g. salmon, cod, haddock, coley, some smoked fish, tuna, etc., plus prawns if you like), season with salt, paprika and cayenne pepper and simmer until fish is cooked. You can also add frozen green peas at the same time as the fish, which gives a zing to the colour. Serve with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and garnished with fresh parsley. Absolutely scrummy, and about 400 calories for a really generous and filling serving.

Take a 9x13 pan put a bag of fresh baby spinach in the bottom, then added chopped onions, emoticon summer squash and zucchini, place tilapia filets on top sprinkle with Cajun Seasoning, then pour a can of fire roasted tomatoes on top and bake. I serve over whole wheat orzo or brown rice - absolutely delicious and super easy to make.
