Flavor-Boost Your Fish

Flavor Your FishMany people love to eat fish, but feel stuck when it comes to cooking it for themselves and figuring out how to top it. Why not “flavor-boost” your fish next time around with one of my four fast and easy sauces?

Throughout Secrets of a Skinny Chef, now available in stores and on Amazon, Barnes and Nobles, Borders and IndieBound, I highlight several recipes featuring fish – in part because cooking fish is super-fast, and makes for an easy, quick meal that you can serve with flavorful fresh sauces.

If it’s in your budget, try wild salmon, which is naturally high in omega-3’s for an extra dose of goodness. If not, go for tilapia instead – it’s inexpensive, easy to find and has a white, flaky texture that most people love. As many foodies feel that tilapia’s non-descript taste demands flavorful sides and sauces, I decided to feature recipes for four sauces in a recent post on Slashfood:

  • Chunky Gazpacho Sauce
  • Grapefruit-Olive Sauce
  • Peppadew Orange Sauce
  • Chipotle Tomato Sauce

Here’s how to prepare the fish: Preheat your oven to 400 F. Simply coat the fish with a light layer of olive oil spray and a pinch of salt and pepper. Place in a glass baking dish and bake for 10 to 12 minutes until the fish flakes with a fork. Top with a scoop of sauce and serve immediately.
