Wish I could help. I don't buy fish because it's so expensive. Only when I'm lucky enough that my husband takes the kids out for sunnies do we have panfish. Just floured and fried.
A local chef has given me some tips for sourcing and in addition to what I already know, I can do it affordably. I'm hoping that we can learn to fish ourselves. I remember a little from when I was a kid but I haven't gone fishing since then!

I was sent a bunch of recipes before Lent started and I saw this today on my desk in the pile.
Sweet Corn and Crab Soup
2 TBSP butter 3 c. fresh sweet corn kernels (or frozen) 1/4 c. white cornmeal 4 3/4 veg. broth 2 ribs celery, diced 2 corncobs (?) 1 med. onion, diced 1 lb. fresh lump crab meat drained and flaked 1 red bell pepper, diced 1 c. whipping cream 1 jalapeno pepper, diced (optional) 1/4 c. chopped cilantro 1/4 tsp. ground white pepper 1/2 tsp. salt
Add butter to a Dutch oven over medium heat and melt. Whisk in the cornmeal and cook, whisking constantly, 1 minute. Add celery and next 4 ingredients; saute for 2 minutes. Add broth and corncobs. Bring to boil; reduce heat, and simmer 30 minutes. Remove and discard corncobs. Stir in crabmeat and the next 4 ingredients; cook until thoroughly heated. Yield: 10 1/2 cups.
If you don't take the Mother of God's advice and pray the Rosary everyday to bring peace to your world, nation and family and your eternal salvation, what advice can I possibly give you?
This works in a microwave or an oven. We usually just eat freshwater fish that we catch, so I know it works well with walleye, crappie, white bass, etc. I imagine it would work fine with tilapia, cod, etc.
Put fillets in a single layer in dish packed enough that fillets are touching and you can't see the bottom of the dish. Season with salt, parsley and lemon pepper, top with butter, cover and bake. It's done when the fish flakes. So simple, so tasty.
I want to incorporate more fish and shellfish into our diet.
I don't really care for salmon (probably the source, but I'd be willing to try a new recipe) or tuna from a can.
Any recipies, cookbooks, articles that you find appropriate would be appreciated.
In 2004 I bought the South Beach Diet book. It has great recipes in there, particularly how to prepare several different types of fish. It is still my favorite recipe book to look at for preparing some great fish recipes as well as great sides. My other favorite cookbook is The Eat-Clean Diet Cook Book by Tosca Reno. However, nowadays, we just google for recipes and there are so many different types to choose from.
