Easy Seafood Recipes Baked Salmon

This great collection of easy seafood recipes is designed to help you see how easy it is to cook fish.

A lot of people are wary about cooking fish because they don't know what to serve it with. Most recipes on this site have serving suggestions - an example of what vegetable will go with that recipe.

It can be as easy as some crusty bread to mop up the juices or a salad to add some color. 

A good rule of thumb when you're cooking seafood is if the fish is 'dry' so grilled, baked, roasted for example without a sauce, then have a saucy side - cauliflower cheese or mac and cheese for example. 

Use sauces - parsley, cheese, mayonnaise etc - to add some flavour and juices to the finished dish.

Try cooking an all in one, so vegetables, sauce and fish are all in one pot - then you'll just have to add a carb, potatoes, bread, couscous, pasta, rice and so on.

It's no harder putting a meal plan together for a fish main than it is a pork chop or steak. 

Fish is very quick to cook - with direct heat, 10 minutes or less, oven heat 20 -30 minutes. You can have a fish meal on the table quicker than you can get a takeaway.

Gourmet Easy Seafood Recipes 

Just because it's 'easy' doesn't have to mean boring or run of the mill. 

I define easy seafood recipes as being something that doesn't take a lot of steps to cook, doesn't have loads of unusual ingredients and doesn't need complicated preparation.

So, a lovely salmon steak, with a great marinade cooked alongside its vegetables I would say is easy, but gourmet.

Have a look at some of these fabulous recipes.

Some dishes that we look at as simple are actually quite messy - I'm thinking of things like fish cakes where, if you're using leftovers, that's great, but if you're starting from scratch you've got a load of preparation work to do.

So, to be defined as easy recipes, I think there should be no more than two pans (preferably one!) and a shortish list of easy to find ingredients - nothing exotic or unusual.

It shouldn't take too long to cook - no fiddly skinning, rolling or filleting. 

Canned fish is great for learners - it's full of flavour and economical. I use canned tuna in pasta dishes as a substitute for ground beef.

Pan frying is quick - get your veggies ready before you start.

Smoked fish is so tasty and a little goes a long way.

This is just a selection of recipes that I would classify as 'easy' - something for everybody, dinner parties, family meals, pasta, curry, you can see how versatile fish is.

You can substitute similar fish - for example, you could

  • bake cod or haddock instead of the salmon,¬†
  • add chunks of white fish into the curry sauce instead of the shrimp
  • use a handful of defrosted shrimp instead of the smoked salmon in pasta
