That link is one I really like and have made several times.

I like throwing whole fish on the grill.

I will also portion fish out and cook in foil pouches with veg,herbs and wine.

I also like mixed seafood in a bechamel sauce that has a little gruyere melted in.Cheese and fish don't go tegether for me very often but it works there.

Fish tacos are also a big hit at my house.You can use anything from grilled to fried to frozen fish sticks for them.Add some cabbage,cilantro and onion and a little spicy mayo.Yum!
 
We often pan-sear fish...just rub with a little olive oil, season with S&P and a little lemon juice, and sear in medium-hot skillet. Don't over-cook it...it should just flake with a fork, and be opaque.

We also like it poached...season with S&P, put in skillet, lay a slice of lemon and a sprig of fresh rosemary or a sprinkle of thyme on top of each serving, pour a can of chicken broth in the skillet, cover and simmer till done as above.

It's also good oven-cooked in foil packets...put a piece of fish, S&P, slice of onion, a slice of lemon and a pat of butter in each packet. Bake in oven at 350 till done. How long depends on size of serving.

Acually, I love fish just about any way, as long as it is not over-cooked.

Nooooooo! You don't cook smoked salmon. You slice it thin and eat it. It can go on toast or on a bagel or on heavy germanic rye bread. It goes well with cream cheese or quark and red onions, sliced thin, and capers.

Ditto! Smoked salmon should never be "cooked". If you are looking for salmon recipes I got jillions. Is it salmon you want or just fish in general?
 
cheers guys I am definately going to try all those recipies....yum yum!! any recipies for salmon and other fish would b great Alix thanks....I have eaten smoked salmon fresh (not cooked) but i have only ever eaten it with prawns and salad, so as a starter really coz its a cold dish....I eat real hearty hot meals, live on Englands seaside coast so its kind of a necessity here ;) ooooh I have just been down to local supermarket (needed bread milk etc) sooo many people buying absolute CRAP!! Buy ingrediants and cook it yourself.. adds, what, 5minutes prep time to the cooking time AND it will cost u less in the long run as you'll have bits left for next days meal time!!! ARGH PPL!! :/
 
My favorite way with salmon is dill. The flavors go so good.

I love to take grouper or halibut and cut into 2" chunks and simmer them slowly (braise) in some Italian dressing. The vinegary taste goes away leaving a lemony tang, and all those beautiful spices.

Yeah, dill goes really well with salmon. It's traditional in Scandinavia. You have inspired an idea. I will add dill to some home made quark (it's a great cream cheese substitute) next time I'm having smoke salmon or gravad laks.
 
Baked for me. Wrapped in tin foil, placed in oven/pan and cooked according to weight. On opening the foil, off comes (usually) the skin leaving lovely aromatic fish. I find sprinkling about half-teaspoon of oregano lovely for salmon. Also dill although care needs to be taken in not using more than a pinch of dried, or the flavour will overpower.

I only poach salmon if I want to use the milk for sauce.
 
Salmon steak, salt and pepper, coated with olive oil and piled high with oiled onion slices.
400 F for 15 min on a broiler plate.

Chunky blue cheese dressing on a salad goes well with salmon.

Green Beans
Baked Potato.

mmmm, if I had a salmon steak I'd be posting this in "what's for dinner tonight."

Smoke salmon I would only lightly warm and serve with cream cheese or sour cream and dill (make into a spread if you like, then serve open faced on some dense rye bread). I'm not a big salmon fan, though.

My favorites are thick steaks of tuna, swordfish, or other mild fish. Rub with olive oil and your favorite seasonings, then grill or skillet sear, then top with a salsa or relish of some sort. Rice pilaf (or couscous), and a green salad.

fish, you might want to start another thread for the chicken supreme thread.

btw, that sounds very interesting. chicken stuffed with sausage, wrapped in bacon? wow, that sounds good.

is it boneless chicken breast?

in either case of bone in or out, i wouldn't try to sear this first since it's wrapped in bacon. you will need to roast, pressure cook, slow cook, bbq, deep fry, or pan sautee/braise it, depending on how you want it.

pressure or slow cooking doesn't sound like the way to go. it'll get ooky.

roasting/broiling/grilling at higher temps will render the bacon crisp, and the chicken moist, but you have to be careful not to undercook the sausage stuffing while overcooking the outer layers. start with medium heat, finish high to crisp. use a probe thermometer to check the doneness on the sausage.

my best guess would be to cook it on a rotisserie on medium high heat, thus allowing the bacon wrapper to render it's fat into the chicken, and the internal moisture to spread around.

if you have no access to a rotisserie, i would try roasting it medium high on a rack over quartered root veggies and spuds that were tossed in evoo and seasoned with parsley and thyme.

Smoked Salmon-Yummy!

Smoked Salmon is FAB on bagels or Melba toasts. I love it on either with sliced cucumbers and @ 1/4C sour cream, 2t fresh dill, 2T shallots & 1T capers mixed in! It's also great in pasta with an alfredo style sauce plus fresh or diced tomatoes and a bit of basil. If you want to make a wonderful appetizer to spread on toasts, baked pitas or crackers mix flaked smoked salmon, enough mayo to bind, minced parsley & minced red onion- all to taste, plus 2 hard boiled eggs. Enjoy!!
