Drumroll please…introducing our e-cookbook: “Everyday Seafood Recipes: 53 Quick and Easy Dishes” We launched the Dish on Fish blog a few years ago because we wanted to show you how easy it is to create healthy and delicious seafood dishes in your own kitchen. Since then we’ve created more than 50 recipes featuring seafood for breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinners. We eat with our eyes first, so every recipe includes a mouth-watering image or fun video. Many of the recipes include pantry staples—and all are pescatarian-friendly (Go Pescatarian!).
We are big fans of keeping frozen, canned and pouched seafood on hand—because it makes it so easy to include seafood in your meal plan at least 2-3 servings a week as recommended in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
If you are trying our pescatarian challenge, the e-cookbook provides plenty of variety. You’ll find high-protein breakfast options, like our Egg and Crab Muffins and Salmon-Stuffed Avocado Boats. Looking to satisfy your mid-day cravings? Enjoy our Tuna Croquettes, Smoked Trout Dip or Seared Scallop Salad for a lunch or snack. For dinner, we suggest a hand-held like the Grilled Mediterranean Salmon Gyros or try the Tilapia Piccata or Wild Alaska Pollock en Papillote.
There are also call-out tags throughout the cookbook for gluten-free recipes, kid-friendly favorites and our cook-along series, “The Seafood Supper Club.”
These recipes are like our children—we can’t pick favorites—however we want to share a few today to help kick off National Pescatarian Month. Hope you will enjoy this easy-to-use cookbook and share it with a friend.
Easy Egg and Crab Muffins
We’ve all been there. The alarm goes off and you hit snooze once, or maybe twice. Suddenly you open your eyes and discover you have five minutes to get out the door with no time to make breakfast. Morning hack: Set aside just 30 minutes on Sunday to meal prep these protein-packed Egg and Crab Muffins and you’ll be able to enjoy an easy, satisfying breakfast every day of the week.
Salmon-Stuffed Avocado Boat
Looking for a new salmon recipe that checks the box for breakfast, lunch or a light dinner? Let us introduce you to our Salmon-Stuffed Avocado Boats. Featuring two favorite ingredients—salmon and avocados. And, well, let’s say we didn’t have any trouble finding taste-testers for this recipe. We think this will become a regular in your breakfast and brunch rotation.
Hailing from France, croquettes may sound fancy, but our Tuna Croquettes come together in just over 30 minutes! Full of healthy tuna and loaded with flavor, these patties are great for a snack, light meal or even a party. Keep some pantry-perfect tuna (either pouched or canned) on hand to whip these up anytime. We added a lemon-pepper dipping sauce for a fresh zing to accompany this tuna recipe. So, let’s make some delicious tuna croquettes. Bon appétit!
Grilled Mediterranean Cedar Plank Salmon Gyros
This Greek-inspired grilled salmon gyro provides the perfect combination of fresh vegetables, salty olives and zesty tzatziki. We love salmon in a gyro because it ups the nutrient notch of this traditional Mediterranean handheld. This superfood is rich in protein and omega-3 fatty acids, which help to reduce inflammation, lower triglycerides and support heart and brain health. If you haven’t cooked on a cedar plank before, soak it in water for an hour in advance of cooking. Yes, this sandwich is so good you won’t have to worry about leftovers.
Smoked Trout Dip
You’ll flip for our Smoked Trout Dip, a simple, savory and satisfying treat that is also good for you. Easy to make, easy to store and easy to eat—think of this trout dip recipe as snack time made simple! Seafood dips go perfectly with raw veggies, crackers or pita. We’ve tested this theory with our other original dips—the salmon dip, shrimp dip and crab dip. All tasty ways to get your seafood servings in, especially if you’re looking for a healthy snack.
Seared Scallop Salad with Blueberries
This Seared Scallop Salad with Blueberries recipe brings together two ingredients that you may not have thought of—scallops and blueberries! We always love the sweet-and-savory combination of seafood and fruit, and this hits all the right notes when combined with fresh greens and simple homemade delicious balsamic vinaigrette dressing featuring pantry ingredients.
Lemon Tilapia Piccata
Lemon is the perfect citrus flavor for seafood. With that in mind, we created a succulent Lemon Tilapia Piccata. Taking just 15 minutes from start to finish, this dish is simple, elegant and, most importantly, delicious. Tilapia is an easy fish to keep in the freezer. The filets are thin, and it thaws in no time. Grab a lemon and get started on dinner.
Wild Alaska Pollock en Papillote with Chimichurri Sauce
Grab the aluminum foil for these en papillote fillets! En papillote is French for “cooking in a pouch,” which equals a no-mess, high-flavor meal! We used flaky, tender Wild Alaska Pollock paired with a vibrant chimichurri that will kick dinner into high gear.
