I'm always up for a good salmon dinner, but this is the best recipe I've ever made. Strawberry jam might seem like a surprise in an Asian-inspired dish, but it makes a sweet-savory glaze that impresses everyone—even my boyfriend, who doesn't like fish. —Krystina Cahalan, Winter Park, Florida
These cakes are crispy on the outside and moist and flavorful on the inside—a real treat! I like to serve them with hush puppies and coleslaw. I developed the recipe to put to good use all the catfish we catch at our lake cabin. —Jan Campbell, Hattiesburg, Mississippi
To serve a reduced-calorie dish that is ready in about 15 minutes. I came up with this fast simple recipe. I think the lime juice adds a different fresh flavor to the mild taste of the fish.

This delicious recipe came from a friend her in Mountain Home. The sauce really gives the fish a wonderful flavor. Even those who aren't that fond of fish will like it prepared this way. My husband and I have been married for 45 years and moved to this area after retiring 4 years ago.

This is my favorite way to prepare fresh fish. The fillets cook up moist with an irresistible crisp, golden coating. Whether your fish comes from a nearby lake or the grocery store, it makes a terrific summer meal.

ONE SUMMER when my husband and I were enjoying our first "getaway" in years, we found ourselves stranded in our cabin cruiser with a dead battery.
When hunger set in, my husband rigged up a fishing line, and soon there were two trout sizzling on the portable grill.
We eventually made it home all right...and kept the recipe we'd devised.
