    Question What do you guys eat with fish?

    Shop Now
    Meat seems natural to pair things with, and it's often fatty enough I don't feel the need to dress it up. But that could be because I'm from the midwest, and when I was growing up, fish was square shaped and served with mayonnaise.

    Got any good ways to add more interest/variety/fats to fish and seafood? Good sides or methods of serving other than chucked into a salad like I always do?

    What do you guys eat with fish?

    Salmon is good with a citrus or rosemary butter sauce and some freshly ground black pepper + sea salt. Served with rosemary potatoes.

    You can also try an garlic- avocado or cashew cream sauce drizzled on top of trout/tilapia/etc, served with caramelized carrots.

    Or you can go Asian and do a butter-soy sauce-sugar-Chinese vinegar-garlic-ginger base and sear the fish (trout is good this way) in the sauce. This one is traditionally done with a whole fish.

    Pesto is awesome for salmon as well...

    You can make your own tuna or salmon salad mixed with homemade mayo. I make my "mayo" with melted ghee and so it is a whipped butter-mayo combo thingy.

    Finally, making your own sashimi/naruto/sushi bowl is awesome if you can find sushi-grade fish. Served with homemade spicy mayo (homemade mayo + sriracha)

    Lately I've been on a kick cooking it slowly in a skillet with garlic butter. Then putting it on a plate and topping it off with sauerkraut and sour cream.

    That's tasty.

    I do salmon or atlantic mackerel 3x a week. Fatty fish already creates a large amount of oil in the skillet once it starts cooking. So a lot of times I'll just have it plain with sea salt, super tasty. With salmon sometimes I'll add butter and carrots.

    Here in Asia fish is often served whole so I've got used to that. Sometimes I'll take a whole croaker or something fresh from the fish market, put it in a cast iron skillet with a lid, throw in butter and a bunch of different veggies, herbs, and sea salt, and let it slow cook together. Flavors mix together, really good.

    Tuna steaks seared on both sides in the skillet with a lump of grass-fed butter on top. Cooked this up in a hotel kitchen earlier this year…

    I'm kind of boring when it comes to fish. I almost always layer it on top of asparagus spears and diced mushroom, then top it with garlic and butter, wrap it in parchment and throw it in the oven.

    Hi RittenRemedy,
    I often pop pesto on top of my fish, or an olive oil-based tapenade in some flavour or other, like black olive, red capsicum or sun-dried tomato. Delicious!
