Are you ready to try something new for dinner? This very best fish recipe ever is bursting with savory flavors and is foolproof. Wow your family tonight!
I was always intimidated by fish until I stumbled upon this amazing recipe, and I have been meaning to share it for ages. I got the original version from my dear friend, Jenny, during a mom’s-night-out recipe swap back when we both lived in Seattle. We were so chatty that night that I only ended up writing down two recipes, but this was one of them.
In the years since, I have tweaked it just a bit. It is one of my family’s very favorite meals and it is also a fantastic—and super easy—dish to serve guests (provided they eat seafood).
The really great thing about this recipe is that it works with pretty much any type of fish or seafood. The original recipe called for halibut, which I love, but it’s very hard to get here in Florida. I have used tilapia, mahi-mahi, salmon, flounder, cod and shrimp with this recipe, and they have all turned out wonderful. Another easy fish recipe that has become a family favorite during the warmer months is this Fish Taco recipe.
