We’ve gathered up all the best recipes for you to use white fish in!
In our White Fish series, we’ve shared all about what exactly counts as a white fish and what to look for when purchasing. Plus, we’ve shared a wide variety of amazing recipes for the grill, oven, air fryer, and more. Catch up on all of them below.
Cooking With Cod, Pollock, Or Haddock
If you have fillets of cod, pollock, or haddock, try out Air Fryer Fish or Fish Cakes. These kinds of white fish are flaky, meaning they break up into delicate and delicious pieces as you eat them.
You could also use any of these in place of the tilapia in this Baked Tilapia recipe. It’s got a lemony garlic butter sauce that is sooo good.
Cooking With Halibut, Sturgeon, Or Swordfish
These meatier varieties of white fish are great for dishes where you don’t want the fish to fall apart easily after cooking, like in soups. Try them in Cioppino or in this Seafood Pasta.
Cooking With Sablefish Or Chilean Sea Bass
Sablefish and Chilean Sea Bass, along with sturgeon, are fattier white fish that also tend to have fillets on the thicker side. This means that they are great to cook on the grill! Use any of them in this Grilled Fish with Tomato Salsa recipe.
Cooking With Catfish Or Flounder
Catfish and flounder fillets tend to be thinner, making them great to bread and fry. This Fried Catfish recipe has them coated with buttermilk and cornmeal and fried to crispy perfection. Yum!
Cooking With A Whole Fish
Sometimes, the occasion calls for a whole fish instead of a fillet. In those cases, look to this Roasted Branzino recipe. Yes, it works wonderfully with branzino, but also with other similarly sized fish like a larger trout or smaller snapper and striped bass.
Once you’ve gotten used to the best fish for each method, it’s easy to get creative and make your own variations of these amazing recipes. I hope you’ve enjoyed learning all about white fish and I can’t wait to hear about what you cook up!
