Grilling fish is not easy. Unlike beef or chicken, fish is delicate, and can easily get destroyed if not handled and cooked properly. Here are a few tips on picking, and grilling fresh fish this summer.
Chilean Sea Bass is my favorite fish- it’s naturally buttery, rich, and meaty. This particular fish goes well with white butter sauces, and of course, champagne. Give this recipe a try- it will amaze your friends and family.
Chimichurri is an Argentinian sauce that’s used for grilled meat. The basic recipe consists of chopped parsley, garlic, pepper, olive oil, and vinegar- try using fresh herbs from your garden to make a concoction that is truly original!
Halibut is a naturally sweet fish with delicate white flesh. Since the flavors are subtle, it’s important not to serve this particular fish without heavy sauces and crusts. My recipe is fresh and light, accenting the natural deliciousness of the fish.
A lot of people are going to be having barbecues this summer- burgers and dogs will be thrown over hot coals, as will fresh fish, different cuts of meats, and there’s nothing like fresh grilled vegetables. It’s easy to get into a rut when cooking on the grill- the same old chicken and steaks can become boring, and if you have guests, you may want to spice things up a bit.
There are plenty of family-oriented restaurants in Regent Square; all types of food can be had. Unfortunately, very seldom do we see fresh fish on local restaurant’s menus. I’m sure the patrons that live in Regent Square would enjoy a good piece of fresh salmon, tuna, or halibut. Hopefully, the chefs at Regent Square’s soon-to-open restaurants, Cibo, and Root 174, will embrace the inner-fishes, and provide residents with an adequate sampling of fresh sea fare. Until that happens, here are a few suggestions on finding, and cooking fish.
Cooking fish can be difficult. It’s not like meat; if you grill a strip steak, and forget about it, it’s still going to be edible- not so with fish. If seafood is overcooked, even by a few minutes, it can become dry, tasteless, and unpalatable. Here are a few suggestions for cooking fish so that it turns out succulent, flavorful, and delicious.
