What seasonings do you use on fish?

I'm tired of lemon pepper and I can't do hot stuff. What do you do with fish?

A gal that works for me uses Italian dressing. She just lets it it soak in that and bakes it. Says it caramelizes on it. I've been meaning to try this also....looking for something different

Shallot, tomato, mushroom and a splash of dry white wine with a little fresh thyme and parsley make a good sort of stew. The wine could be replaced with fish stock for an even carb friendlier version. Or you could use both. If your feeling spendy a little saffron goes a long way in there too.

This book is a treasure with flavor pairings. It's not recipe oriented but guides you with flavors. I've been using it commercially for almost ten years now, its helped me and my staff a whole lot when looking for inspiration

You can do the mayo/parmesan coating just like for chicken.

This Seafood Spice blend is from Buttoni's website. I love all her spice blends and this one is particularly nice. I have it on hand all the time.

Seafood Spice Blend

7 T. paprika
¼ c. garlic powder
2 ½ T. crushed oregano
3 T. ground thyme
3 T. onion powder
2 T. black pepper
1 T. cayenne pepper

DIRECTIONS: Mix all ingredients and put in convenient shaker. Once you try this on baked fish, cajun recipes and seafood, you’ll be using a LOT of it! I sure do!

Here's a link to her site:

Seasoning salt - I have my favorite - it is called Hy's - Canadian brand. Add to that Parmesan cheese, black pepper, parsley and Italian Herb Seasoning. I also like to pan fry fish and then add a garlic butter sauce with parsely for the last part of the cooking.



SEA BASS IN GARLIC BUTTER SAUCE
In the tropics, you would call this Corvina in garlic sauce. My husband is not a huge fish fan, but he is being converted with recipes like this one. Swai, similar to catfish, would work well in this recipe as well as Tilapia.

1 lb sea bass fillets (0.45 kg)
1/4 tsp paprika (1 mL)
1/4 tsp onion salt (1 mL)
1/4 tsp seasoning salt (1 mL)
1/4 tsp black pepper (1 mL)
1 tbsp olive oil (15 mL)
Lemon wedges
Garlic Butter Sauce:
1 1/2 tbsp butter (22 mL)
1 tbsp olive oil (15 mL)
1 tsp dried parsley (5 mL)
1 tsp crushed garlic (5 mL)
1/8 tsp salt (0.5 mL)

Wash fish fillets under cold running water. Pat dry with paper towels. In small bowl, combine paprika, onion salt, seasoning salt and black pepper. Sprinkle seasoning on both sides of the fish.

Garlic Butter Sauce: In small saucepan, combine butter, olive oil, parsley, crushed garlic and salt. Heat until hot and sauce is bubbling.

In large frying pan, cook sea bass fillets about 5 minutes on the one side. Turn and coat with Garlic Butter Sauce and cook 4 to 5 minutes more, or until done. Serve immediately with lemon wedges.

I use lemon pepper a lot as well, but I do like to mix it up. For a different seasoning mix I like Chef Paul Prudhomme's Seafood Magic blend. You can use it just like lemon pepper but it is a nice change of flavor.

This is my new favorite:
Coat the top of 1 lb steelhead trout or salmon flesh with a paste made from garlic, fresh rosemary, lemon zest & juice, salt, pepper, and olive oil then broil it. Some of the best fish I've had. Not nearly as good with dried rosemary though. Specifics are here: Broiled Steelhead Trout With Rosemary, Lemon And Garlic Recipe
