When I’m starving after work, I want a fast meal with no-fail technique. Roasted salmon is uber-tender and has a delicate sweetness. It’s also an easy wowza for company. —Jeanne Ambrose, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
"I've always enjoyed orange roughy," relates Laura Freeman of Ruffin, North Carolina. "So as soon as I came across this recipe several years ago, I had to try it. It's been a regular entree at our house ever since because it's moist, delicious and easy to make."
"My family was not big on fish...until I made this dish," Joy McConaghy from Moline, Illinois notes. She stuffs catfish fillets with a delicious mixture of crabmeat, cheese, seasoned bread crumbs and mayonnaise.
A flavorful pesto helps keep the fish moist, and toasted bread crumbs give the entree a nice finishing touch. “I like to use fresh basil from the garden for this easy dish,” notes Lee Bremson of Kansas City, Missouri.
Low in carbohydrates but pleasing in taste, this recipe makes for a moist and tender main course. Parmesan cheese flavors a medley of zucchini, mushrooms and onions that tops the fish fillets.—Sondra Ostheimer, Boscobel, Wisconsin
The fish dishes Melissa Merrill relies on are all family-approved. "They love this salmon...and I like that it's so good for us!" she notes from Hatteras, North Carolina. "I grow my own herbs and love using them in recipes like this one."
Give your fish a southwestern "kick" with Teresa Hubbard's change-of-pace preparation. "My sister doesn't like seafood, so I figured I'd disguise it with a mix of interesting tastes and textures," she explains from Russellville, Alabama. "Everyone was surprised by the slightly crunchy tortilla chip coating."
“This is an unusual but delicious combination of ingredients,” says Dixie Terry of Goreville, Illinois. “For a great company meal, I serve it with a chilled green bean salad and sliced French bread that's been spread with butter and dried basil, then baked. A strawberry ice cream pie makes a delicious dessert.”
