During Lent, many people crave easy fish recipes. While that favorite fish sandwich from a quick service restaurant is tempting, cooking fish at home doesn’t have to be a huge ordeal. With a few easy ideas and some simple ingredients, a delicious meal is ready to be served.

While many home cooks have expanded their cooking techniques and recipes in the past year, fish can sometimes be intimidating. Whether it is  a mindset or just not being familiar, fish recipes are not difficult. It really comes down to the right ingredients and a balance of flavors.

Since most home cooks may not be serving sashimi at home or a robust bouillabaisse, it is best to start with easy fish recipes. One way to take some of the guess work out of the cooking process is to start with some semi-homemade recipe ideas.

Gorton’s Seafood can make cooking fish at home stress-free. With a wide array of easy fish recipes on its website, that piece of fish can be transformed into those restaurant flavors that people crave.

For example, fish tacos are a cinch. By using the Crispy Battered Fillets and some sriracha cream sauce, Taco Tuesday can get a Baja Fish Tacos upgrade. Even if you prefer a milder sauce, the recipe can be modified in many ways. Additionally, that crispy fish could be ways for grilled fish, too. Basically, mastering one recipe lends itself to many possibilities.

And, if your food takeout bill is getting unmanageable, there are several bowl recipes that are just as tasty as your local restaurant. From Chipotle Fish Bowls for the spicy fan to Healthy Poke Bowls that are fully customizable, these recipes could become a Fish Friday dish all year round.
