Dress Your Fish

Solve the dinner dilemma by cooking up some seafood. The best part? It’s easier to prepare than you may think. Really! Don’t believe me?

Compared to cooking chicken or beef, you can visually see how the heat affects the fish as it quickly cooks through. A good rule of thumb is to figure about 10 minutes of cooking time per 1-inch of thickness. Fish is very method friendly as it loves the broiler, oven, grill, or the cook top. It doesn’t have to be difficult. Overall, I like to keep things simple so that the fresh fish flavor really comes through, and these products are easy ways to dress your fish without overdoing it.

If you are a beginner, try using your broiler to cook the fish; no flipping or turning needs to happen and it’s delicious with a little sea salt, like Maldon Sea Salt Flakes or Fleur de Sel, and a squeeze of fresh lemon. Or, complement a piece of Arctic char or salmon with Spence & Co. LTD. Mustard Dill Sauce right before you remove from the heat. Another fast fish dinner can happen in your sauté pan with a little Vera Jane’s Extra-Virgin Olive Oil and a good stir-fry or simmer sauce.

Recreate your favorite fish fry right in your home kitchen with some of our seasoned mixes and batters. Try battering up a piece of cod or tilapia and frying in grapeseed oil.

There’s also something amazingly simple about shrimp cocktail. If you are a horseradish fan, try Indianapolis’ favorite cocktail sauce from St. Elmo Steak House with ice cold shrimp. No cooking involved! Enter March 2017 Sweepstakes!
