Hi, Mari! If you look near the top of the page, you'll see a tab labeled "Recipe Exchange." There's an online community of folks there who would be more than happy to help you out and suggest recipes for you. It's a lot of fun, too! Hope to see you there.

Marci, in Oregon I get salmon and steelhead sometimes and I like to bake it whole. I put one package of stovetop stuffing without the liquid inside the fish and wrap it in foil skin on. Bake it until done, the time will depend on the size of fish you get. When it comes out if the oven remove the fish from the foil by rolling it onto a platter. The skin will come off with the foil. Now lay the fish open with a spoon or spatula and dish out the dressing. At this time you are ready to serve the fish accept you need a cheese sauce of your choice. I make one with velveeta and a small amount of Jalapeno minced as fine as you can get it. Add salt to taste and enjoy. I usually pour the cheese sauce over the fish. It will bone itself as you dish it so don't worry about the bones. If it is well done it will bone very easily. Happy fishing.

The Italians love fresh fish and make them in a myriad of ways, including soups and stews (perfect for the "Winterpeg" cold). The hard part to me is keeping the fish's flavor from being covered by everything else.

Lisabeth, Howdy neighbor! I live in Oregon too and I am so interested in learning more about your "stovetop" fish recipe. Do you just add the bread cubes to the fish? Or do you add the seasoning packette as well? I want to give this a try.

As a fellow Winterpegger living in Alberta, I so miss eating pickerel in the summer! My grandma would actually drive out to a fish market in Selkirk, where they always have it fresh, and she would buy them out, and freeze in small portions for the rest of the year. I'm pretty sure she just pan fried the filets in a bit of butter with some lemon. so good!! makes me miss Winnipeg, and Grand Beach:)

I also LOVE this salmon recipe, it is the easiest thing you could imagine, brown sugar, dijon mustard, and salmon, takes about 15 minutes from fridge to dinner plate. Here is the link:

I have made this blackened tilapia twice in the last week. Very good.

I love grilled sea bass that's been marinated! You should definitely try it!

My husband and I have been trying to eat healthier. There are a couple fish recipes on here that I have tried and we have loved.
The recipe calls for a dill sauce...I always substitute low fat sour cream and low fat mayo to make it a little healthier. I have also made the fish and just left the sauce completely off and served with extra lemons and it was just as good.
I made this and put in in the refrigerator overnight to was super yummy! I served it with asparagus. I will also sometimes just take tilapia or salmon and sprinkle it with lemon pepper and broil it in the oven...or you can just simply buy (or make there are good recipes) a blackening spice and use that on pretty much any white fish and it's delicious. Hope this helps some!

About Me
I live in Winnipeg with my husband and our two very large cats Lucy and Dennis. Our summers are very short so when able I love to be out in the yard gardening and sitting in the gazebo reading. I am still trying to figure out how to grow my tomatoes and peppers. I have a very shaded back yard and I have not had much luck. I will keep trying though. I enjoy spending time with my family, and reading cookbooks has become an obsession of mine. I only wish that I could make a living testing recipes. THAT would be incredible !!!!
My favorite things to cook
Living in "Winterpeg", I have plenty of time to spend indoors cooking. I love to experiment with new recipes. During the winter months I like to prepare comfort foods but I also like to look ahead to bar-b-que season and find new potential grilling recipes. I really love to cook anything pasta and shellfish on a regular basis. Soups are a favorite of mine as well.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family cooking tradition is my mother's comfort soups and stews. She also made THE best gravy in the world!!!! I am still trying to get it right. my mother also made the best "THAT", which was her version of nuts and bolts. Whenever she made it I would bring some home and my husband would happily say "oh, that!" So that is how "THAT" stuck. Whew!
My cooking triumphs
I have never been much for baking but I have been attempting to do more lately. I actually baked my first [good] pie! I used a pie plate that was larger than required and found that it was only 1/2 filled by the time I added the cherry pie filling. Not wanting to waste it I added some wild blueberries to top it up. I made a lattice top and it was good.
My cooking tragedies
I was cooking a turkey in the oven when I realized the door of the oven was not completely shut. Once I recitified the problem I re-set the timer to what I thought would be appropriate time to make up for the loss of heat in the oven. I failed to check on it. The timer went off and ..........well......turkey jerky anyone?! Thank goodness I also had a ham to fall back on!
