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.
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.
We arrived at Pangea in Shadyside at 7pm on a Saturday night. There were a plethora of seats available; that made us nervous. Its peak hour, why weren’t there more patrons here? We were shown to a table, and our drink orders were taken. My dinner mate had the house Cabernet; it was sweet, and peachy with a fruit bouquet-perfect. Unfortunately, we didn’t ask what the house-brand was… sorry. As we looked over our menus, our server arrived with some warm bread and butter. The doughy concoction was sweet and extra crusty; exceptional.
