Wild Alaskan Seafood: A Giveaway

We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to and affiliated sites. We participate in other affiliate programs as well. For more details, please see our disclosure policy.

Despite my code name, FishMama, fish has never been one of my favorite foods. I blame it on the numerous Filet O’ Fish Sandwiches that my mother consumed while she was pregnant with me.

Don’t get me wrong. I like fish. But, I’d be more likely to choose shrimp, clam chowder, or prime rib if given the choice. Yet, in my reading about healthier eating, I’m seeing over and over the benefits of making fish a regular part of your diet.

{FishPapa and all the FishBoys yell, “Huzzah!” because fish is very high on their lists of dinnertime favorites.}

Certainly fish straight off the boat is a fresh as you can get. However, not all of us have access to fisherman’s wharf fish, not even those of us who live practically on the beach. And not all waters produce the healthiest fish.

Frozen fish is a easy way for all of us to add this protein to our diets.

Recently Alaska Seafood contacted me to see if we would try their wild Alaska Cod and Salmon and test their Cook It Frozen! ® (CIF) technique. You know me and my love affair with my freezer. How could I resist?

The Alaska Seafood website has an amazing database of information about their wild, sustainable fishing practices. Not only are they very clear about the quality and safety of their fish, but they also offer a huge variety of recipes, videos, and preparation instruction. If you are timid of preparing fish, never fear, they’ve got you covered. You can even download an app to your iPhone, so that you can easily access this information at the grocery store — or wherever in the world you are.

Currently, the website also hosts a printable coupon for $1.00 Alaska pollack or cod and you can print additional coupons at A great way to make a healthy protein a little more affordable!

I loved the Cook It Frozen! ® (CIF) technique. Even though I love me some meals in the freezer, sometimes I forget to thaw them in time for dinner, so I was pleased to have another trick up my sleeve. We tested out Alaska Salmon and Cod on our backyard grill and I was really impressed. I rinsed off the ice glaze from the frozen filets, brushed them with olive oil and then seasoned them. FishPapa took over at that point and grilled according to the directions.

The result was tender, meaty fish. It didn’t taste fishy, either. (A fishy flavor is a sign that your fish is not fresh. Fish should not taste fishy.) We were really impressed with the quality of our filets.

Win a Prize Package from Alaska Seafood!

This week, in honor of LifeasMOM’s blogiversary three LifeasMOM readers will win a the following prize package from Alaska Seafood:

4 frozen fillets of Wild Alaska Salmon
4 frozen fillets of Wild Alaska Cod
Cook It Frozen Recipes
A professional fish spatula from Williams Sonoma
A 10-inch Bamboo Steamer from Sur La Table.

Simply leave a comment on this post, telling us your favorite way to enjoy fish.

Giveaway will be open until Sunday, May 16th 8 pm PST. Winners will be chosen at random and notified by email. Those who don’t respond within 48 hours of their notification email will forfeit their prize.

Disclosure:  Alaska Seafood provided me with several cod and salmon filets to taste and give them my feedback. I was not compensated in any way for reviewing this product or offering this giveaway, nor was I required to do so. My opinions are my own. For more information, please see my disclosure policy.

  1. We love to grill salmon with a little italian dressing. Most of it gets nibbled away with crackers before it makes it to the table…

  2. Kimberly Graesser says:

    My favorite fish is broiled red snapper with creamy lemon sauce – but really any fish will do! My husband doesn’t like fish much so I never want to spend money on it – but if we got some for free maybe I could change his mind. Yum!

  3. Merry Jo says:

    I am learning to like fish almost any way. At first I forced myself to like salmon because of the health benefits, and when someone asked, I would tell them I *only* liked salmon. Then someone else asked if I knew that salmon was one of the strongest tasting fish. No, I didn’t know that! So, I tried others and loved them too! My favorite is when my hubby cooks it, so I don’t have to worry about it! 🙂

  4. one of our favorites is tilapia steamed with cabbage with lots of butter, yum!

  5. i love to blacken salmon or parmesan crusted talapia. Thanks for the giveaway!

  6. We love fish! (well, most of us do anyway) Our favorite is salmon. One way we like it to so cover the fillet in a thin layer of mustard and then with a layer of bread crumbs, (seasoned bread crumbs are good too!) then bake until done!
    Another favorite way is to make quick and easy fish tacos!

  7. I have never been a huge fan of fish, but lately as we’ve been striving towards a healthier, more nutrient dense diet, I have been wanting to incorporate some fish into our diets. We’d love to give this high quality fish a try! 🙂

  8. What a great giveaway!! Thanks for the offer….I love most kinds of grilled fish, so I would probably do just as you have pictured and put that new fish spatula to work over the coals! 🙂

  9. I don’t really like seafood much, but my husband is teaching me to like it more. I’ve recently started liking blackened tilapia.

  10. Fried fish is the best way to go!

  11. Like you, fish isn’t my favorite so I don’t have a preferred method! My husband would love to see that changed…

  12. . . . it’s not very exciting, but it is more affordable for us. . .I look for the wild caught salmon in a can and either make it like tuna salad or salmon patties or into a pasta salad.

  13. Grilled outside. (Then it’s not stinky inside.) Any type of marinade, particularly something with lemon and we are good to go! Terrific giveaway!

  14. I like fish, but the only time I really eat it is if we go out to eat. So far I haven’t been brave enough to try cooking it at home, but this would be a great way to get started!

  15. That’s tough to pick just one favorite way….my TWO favorite ways are beer batter fried (bad I know but hey, it’s amazing) and BBQed.

  16. Kimberly says:

    I have been enjoying your blog for a few months now, and was tickled when I found out that we share a last name (my maiden name was Fisher!).
    So, I have to admit- I grew up in Alaska, so I am actually the lucky beneficiary of annual freezer-fulls of salmon & halibut. I am entering this giveaway mostly for the spatula & steamer basket, but I would happily give the salmon & cod to friends!!!
    In regards to favorite ways to enjoy fish, though- we usually use two of these awesome techniques: 1) Yoshida’s marinade (watered down + fresh garlic) and then grilled/baked and drizzled with a little butter/olive oil and 2) Grilled/baked with pesto on top (put the pesto on top before cooking and it makes a nice crunchy layer!)

  17. Poached in sugar water or broiled are my favorite ways. Serve with melted garlic butter. Yummo! I also like a good Friday night fish fry too.

    Thanks for the review! 🙂

  18. Plank grilled salmon with lemon and butter. Yummm….

  19. Sounds, great! Thanks for the giveaway!

  20. Funny, I am not a huge fish eater but the rest of the famly is! Needless to say, since I am the one cooking, they don’t eat it too often. I’m sure they would love this though! Thanks, great giveaway!

  21. I love fish basically any way I can get it. But we are huge fans of baked salmon with a Greek yogurt/dill sauce.

  22. Wow, your CIF Salmon looks delicious! Our family tries to eat fish on a regular basis to take advantage of its health benefits. Living in PA, we usually purchase frozen fish….we just season and bake it with veggies. Great giveaway, thanks!

  23. When my son went to Alaska with his grandparents four years ago, they went on a fishing trip and caught some halibut which they flash froze and sent home to us in southwest Missouri. It was wonderful, it didn’t even smell like fish when we opened the packages. Definitely not the cheapest way to buy fish =( but the tastiest I have ever had.

  24. Deborah K. says:

    My favorite way of eating fish is boiled in a thick, delicious sauce that only my mother knows how to make. I’ve tried in vain to reproduce it. But grilled is awesome too.

  25. I love fish tacos! But I’m always up for grilled salmon – or even fish & chips.

  26. ohhh, yummm!! Baked salmon with lemon-dill sauce.

  27. I love fish on the grill!

  28. I like salmon that has been poached the way my Dad cooks it.

  29. My husband grills an excellent sweet bourbon salmon. It’s so good–just like candy!

  30. We love fish and the fact that it is good for you makes it that much better. I really need to experiment with grilling it.

  31. TallyMichelle says:

    Ooh, grilled…but I usually wind up baking it b/c it takes so long for the charcoal grill to get ready! Yum! Most certainly going to buy some of this goodness you’ve shared!

  32. We grill our fish and then use it in fish tacos–YUM!

  33. I like salmon with a balsamic reduction sauce…yummy!

  34. I’m not an experienced at-home fish cook mostly because my husband isn’t a fan. But I want my daughter to eat it so I want to cook it at home more. I love grilled salmon!

  35. We’ve never met a fish we didn’t like…my husband cooks a lot of frozen talapia in the microwave!

  36. We love to grill salmon! The kids get so excited for “fish steak”!!

  37. Oh we love fish!!! I like putting cod in tin foil with a little olive oil, lemon slices and seasoning of choice. Throw it on the grill and Poof! Instant fish dinner that is yummy with minimal clean up and no fish smell in the house.

    There is a tuna steak recipe we love. Grilled Tuna that is served with a tomato and corn relish. The only time to eat that is in the summer when you can pick both fresh. I believe that is a Mark Bittman recipe.

    We used to eat fish 2 x’s a week. When I became pregnant we had to cut that down due to the mercury issues. And now my dd is just starting to like fish in its various forms. So I am hoping we will be able to add more of it back into our diet.

    Thank you for the coupon links. These are great!

    p.s. And I’ve also shared my fish stick recipe with you. That is the yummiest.

  38. I love grilled salmon… YUMMY! Plus its a quick & easy clean up : )

  39. My favorite fish is salmon pan fried in olive oil with a little salt and pepper. Yummy!

  40. Get Out! GET OUT! A giveaway for seafood! I’m excited beyond words!!! We love pollack & haddock in chowders, Tilapia and Swordfish on the grill and Tuna in sandwiches.

    Thanks for the chance!

  41. I like to take tilapia filets and put them in a foil packet with some olive oil and lemon pepper seasoning and then bake in the oven.

  42. I mainly cook fish with a little lemon pepper on it.

  43. Grilled fish tacos…and this reminds me that I haven’t made fish at home in quite a while. Might have to add it to the plan next week!

  44. I like to roll it in bread crumbs with some seasonings in it, then wrap it in foil and put it on the grill. Would love to win this!

  45. I love grilled fish. We also like it baked with lemon pepper seasoning.

  46. We like our salmon grilled – other fish, we like fried.

  47. I love fish cooked any way. I am trying to convince my family that fish is so much better when it is not in “stick” form.

  48. we love to have baked salmon with seasoning!!!! Hope I win! Yummy.

  49. Grilled in a foil packet with lemony dressing and vegetables – yum!

  50. We make fish sticks and I put mine on a sandwich. 🙂 I’m not too big on fish but my boys are! Thanks for the giveaway!

  51. Ooh yum! We love salmon grilled or pan-fried.

  52. My favorite is grilled salmon with a Citrus Soy Marinade!! YUM!!

  53. Grilled salmon seasoned with lemon/pepper is our favorite!

  54. I love grilled salmon with spicy apricot sauce (apricot jam mixed with chipotle tabasco). Yum!

  55. I love fish and chips! This is a great giveaway, thanks!

  56. I grew up on an Island off the coast of Seattle in the Puget Sound. Living on a waterlocked Island and my family owning a boat and doing alot of fishing has made me a bit of a seafood snob (only really fresh will do).

    I really like Salmon steaks, broiled and then served with mustard sauce (1 part dijon mustard, 1 part brown sugar, mixed up and microwaved for about 60-90 seconds-just long enough to melt the brown sugar, then mixed again. —BTW also great on ham)

    I also love fish (most any white fish or salmon) poached in white wine, or in orange juice.

  57. Karen Eddy says:

    Would love to try this! I’m with you in that I have never really liked fish but am willing to try for the health benefits. So, I don’t have a favorite, but have found Tilapia to be tolerable and enjoyable in this endeavor to enjoy fish:)

  58. Sheryl F. says:

    We buy frozen tilapia than can be cooked in the microwave from Costco and use a cajun seasoning.

  59. I usually broil it.

  60. we like to bake fish, or bread it lightly and pan-fry it

  61. My husband loves grilled fish.

  62. Unfortunately the only way we cook fish is to fry it. I would love to find other more healthy ways to serve this meat to my family.

  63. Brenda Smith says:

    I love to have grilled salmon.

  64. Oh my gosh, oh my gosh! Please pick me!!! I LOVE FISH. I want to win!!!!

  65. i actually love a good tuna salad! Gotta have some crunchy celery in it though!

  66. At a restaurant 🙂 But it would be good to learn to cook it myself…

  67. I’m in on the giveaway! Thanks ~C

  68. Drasylve says:

    We love fish tacos with tilapia or another favorite is salmon broiled in foil packets with garlic and butter. So good!
    This would be a great prize!

  69. Oh yummy! I love wild salmon grilled with butter!!

  70. We love blackened tilapia cooked in an iron skillet on our grill. Hope I win.

  71. One of my favorites is a creamy fettucine dish with bits of salmon and peas–yum!

  72. I love grilled salmon. We usually grill it on a wood plank with some seasonings! So delishious! This would be so fun to win!!

  74. sarah thomas says:

    yum, I love grilled salmon!

  75. Jennifer says:

    We LOVE Alaska salmon! I usually marinate it in soy sauce/apple juice/ginger/brown sugar and grill it. YUM!

  76. What a great giveaway! We love salmon on the grill.

  77. I’ve never been a “fan” of fish and none of my four children have ever eaten it. So, this would be a great way to introduce it and hopefully we’d love it! thanks for the chance!

  78. My favorite way to enjoy fish is pretty much any way–I love all types of filets. My husband, however, does not share my love of fish. One recipe that I have found that has won him over, though, (at least with tilapia filets) is broild tilapia parmesan. He and my 2 year old son gobble it up!

    Thanks for the chance to win an Alaska Seafood package!

  79. My husband doesn’t like fish so I never fix it…but I love bar-b-qued salmon. I would love to win!

  80. Michelle says:

    Mmmm. My hubby makes up this cracker crumb mixture and fries it – good! I can’t bring myself to fry it, so I bake mine and add lemon and herbs. Still tasty, just not as tasty!

  81. Danyelle says:

    I prefer grilled fish with lemon or butter.

  82. Grilled or baked… either one is great to me! Thanks for the chance.

  83. I love any grilled white fish with lots of butter!

  84. I enjoy fish only one way….from a distance! I’m not a fan but my husband LOVES it!!! He eats it off the grill all summer long; he would be all over this giveaway. Thank you.

  85. My favorite way to eat fish is to broil it in butter!!! YUM!! Now I’m hungry… LOL

  86. I love to saute fish in olive oil. I’m sure there are other ways, but that’s about all I can handle. I’d love to get some more recipes, especially for frozen fish!

  87. When I had my third baby a friend brought over some salmon with a yummy onion mushroom topping. I had to ask for the recipe and it’s become a regular on our menu ever since.

  88. Wow! Our favorite way to enjoy it as a family is salmon patties, but if we go to a restaurant I love to get a salmon fillet served with a caper/dill sauce with broccoli and rice on the side! Yumm. :0)

  89. Andrea Watts says:

    Fried is the best!

  90. I like to do bake my salmon with chicken stock in the oven. And of course, cod makes awesome fish and chips. But it is so expensive!

  91. Well, I’ve only eaten fish a couple times. I think it would be good for us to put it in our diet.

  92. Salmon is one of our favorites. And, being from Minnesota, we can never get enough Walleye… 😀

  93. Oooh! What an awesome giveaway!! We love fish on the grill. We usually do salmon with a little garlic, honey, mustard and salt. YUM!

  94. Mmm…baked in foil with fresh veggies and a sprinkle of olive oil…delish!!

  95. Fish and chips and tuna melts.

    Not exactly the healthiest versions, but it gets my kids eating fish…yes, we are working on that!

  96. I am just learning to love fish–I am trying to get it in our diet more. I love salmon grilled up with lemon pepper. Or I’ve been making homemade fish sticks with tilapia and an almond/flax crust. Delicious!

  97. Christina H says:

    My mouth is watering! My favorite is salmon – caught that day – grilled by my grandpa!

  98. I’m a big fan of grilled tilapia and fried catfish!

  99. Okay. I’ll be honest. I don’t eat fish, but hubby needs to eat it more often. He has horrible cholesterol. When we make it for him, we either grill it or dip it in mustard and bread crumbs and bake it. 🙂

  100. I’ve never been a fish fan but we’re getting more adventurous: grilling, steaming, and yes, frying. And they’re all great ways to cook fish!

  101. I love to make salmon with creamy red pepper sauce. It’s our favorite!!

  102. I’m from the south and fried catfish is one of my favorite things…but in the interest of heart health, we grill salmon and tuna when the price is right. I also make salmon patties from canned salmon. Thanks for the chance to win a great prize!

  103. We do not make fish to often, but my husband’s absolute favorite food is salmon so it is a real treat when we got out to eat and he gets to order it. It would be even better if I got to surprise him with cooking it myself! Thanks!

  104. Valerie S. says:

    My favorite is Salmon, either grilled or roasted with butter and garlic. I also like making fish in foil packets with veggies. A good one is red snapper.

  105. I usually eat my fish breaded, but salmon with any kind of yummy glaze is the best!

  106. Fish tacos, mmmmm.

  107. eunice b says:

    we enjoy grilling catfish on the grill…haven’t convinced my dear husband to enjoy salmon yet though. 🙂

  108. Definitely in sushi! (runner up: pan-seared salmon with garlic)

  109. Right now fish tacos are my thing!!!

  110. I love to grill salmon in packets with lemon, pepper, sweet onion and a drizzle of sauvignon blanc. Yummy.

  111. Until now my favorite fish has been of the battered and fried variety…


  113. I am not a fish eater. I enjoy all other kinds of seafood though. But my favorite way to have salmon is when my brother does his magic on it on the grill. Don’t know what he does to it, but it is yummy! If I would win this, it would be used for an outdoor barbecue in June, promoting (and selling) some products from the business in which I recently got involved. Hope I win! 😉

  114. We just started a new weight loss challenge and were encouraged to have fish at least once a week. I picked some up at the market this morning and would LOVE to win this!!!

  115. I love grilled fish, especially because my husband does the cooking! We also enjoy baked salmon with lemon.

  116. I can’t remember my favorite kind (shows how often we have it!) However, I do remember how I like it prepared. My husband uses olive oil, butter and lemon and puts it on the BBQ. Crispy on the outside, tender on the inside. I’d love to try this!

  117. My absolute favorite way is “Fish & Chips” style – as authentic as possible. If I’m making it myself, I tend to broil it with some melted butter and a few herbs tossed on it. Yummy!

  118. Fish tacos or fish and chips. Never had it grilled, but sounds great!

  119. When my grandparents were still alive, my grandfather would grill some fish with butter and lemon. More recently, my husband and I have found a couple recipes that we can make in the oven. I’m not a huge fan on salmon so I would love to win this giveaway and try the techniques on the website you mentioned.

  120. We like to drizzle olive oil over our fish and add spinach and herb from tastefully simply. Tastes wonderful.

  121. My favorite homecooked fish is salmon with mayo, onions and ketchup spread over it, then baked in the oven. Sounds weird, but it tastes so good!

    Being in a land-locked state, we only do frozen fish. The “fresh” fish here is anything but.

  122. I like tilapia with soy sauce, garlic, and onion powder.

  123. salmon on the stovetop – with a little brownsugar/mustard smeared on

  124. I don’t like fish at all. If I win, I plan to give it all to my mom because she loves fish but living in AZ, we have little access to good fish so this would be perfect for her.

    Angi from Tim and Angi’s Family Blog

  125. Unfortunately, our favorite way to have fish is in fish and chips form. Not the healthiest!! So I would love to try another option without having to guess at the grocery store!

  126. I love my fish with plenty of salt and lemon juice.

  127. I love salmon simple, with some olive oil and pepper. I like making sauce for it separately but most of the time that’s not even required. If you get good quality fish it will taste great. 🙂 I usually cook mine on the stove top, I haven’t pulled out my grill yet.

  128. I , so far, have been a strickly fried fish girl, but would love to experiment without having to buy fish!

  129. Brandie S. says:

    We love oven blackened salmon with cayenne, lemon and olive oil.

  130. I like to broil salmon with a nice garlic bread crumb topping, delicious!

  131. I don’t know how he does it, my husband is in charge of grilling, but he had freshly caught trout and tilapia from the store in little tinfoil packets with I don’t know what in them and it was sooo good.

    Thank you for the giveaway!

  132. Wow- The Cook It Frozen sounds like a great option!

  133. I have to admit that it’s fish and chips. I’m not big into fish and I hardly ever cook it so winning something like this would be a great challenge to me! I’d have to make it – and make everyone in the family happy in the process (they love fish).

  134. I’ve always enjoyed fish either blackened or fried. When I was a kid my grandparents had a fishing pond and would spend at least a few days sitting quietly by the shore with our poles, so we ALWAYS had fish for dinner at least one night when we’d visit on vacation.

  135. Jonalynn says:

    My favorite it beer battered and fried, however, I don’t make it that way. I pan fry with a pat of butter and olive oil. Then I spritz with lemon juice when it’s done.

  136. I love to make salmon on a cedar plank on the bbq!

  137. I’m not one to use a lot of seasoning with fish. Maybe a little garlic or italian dressing. That’s about it.

  138. Barbequed salmon floats my boat!

  139. Adell Lukes says:

    Baked with some lemon pepper! Yumm-o!

  140. Meredith says:

    Oh yes! Would love some salmon!!!

  141. We love salmon on the grill…with just some lemon juice, garlic and onion powder and some oregano. We have the same problem with fresh fish not being readily available (as we live smack dab in the middle of the country…no ocean for miles and miles). Would love to try the Alaska Seafood Cook It Frozen Technique!!

  142. We enjoy fish…but not very frequently, so I try a different recipe every time. I love to experiment. My favorite was a light coating seasoned with dill.

  143. i love grilled salmon! what a great give-away. we would savor the flavor!

  144. Kristina says:

    I have a recipe where you marinade halibut steaks in lime juice, chopped cilantro, oil, and minced garlic. Then just grill when ready… you gotta love that grill!!

  145. It’s not the healthiest way, but for a splurge, I really enjoy it fried.

  146. I have some Tilapia in the freezer, I should use it soon, just don’t have a great recipe.

  147. Salmon stuffed with cream cheese & spinach! mmm 🙂

  148. Christa H. says:

    grilled and in a taco

  149. I’m not a huge seafood eater, but as we’re trying to ‘healthify’ our diet, I’m trying to learn more ways to cook it that make it taste good to me! 🙂 I really like tilapia broiled with lemon pepper seasoning.

  150. Elizabeth says:

    I love salmon baked in the oven with Caesar dressing on it, sprinkled with a little bit of bread crumbs mixed with Parmesan cheese.

  151. My husband loves to grill. When he cooks fish he does it in foil packets and puts is seasonings and the butter inside wraps it up and the grill does the rest of the work. This is a great give away.

  152. Love fish cooked just about any way that it can be cooked. have my favorites oysters , shrimp, catfish etc.

  153. Salmon on the grill, the perfect summer meal! 🙂

    This cook it frozen method sounds like a great time saver!

  154. We love salmon on the grill!

  155. Mmmm…salmon sounds soo good right now. I love it bbq on cedar plank with lemon slices on top. My ultimate favorite way to eat salmon.

  156. We are learning the value of adding fish to our diet as well. I haven’t experimented much with ways to cook fish, but grilled is my favorite so far. Thanks for the giveaway!

  157. Laurie L says:

    We like our fish grilled with lemon pepper. Mmmmmm. 🙂

  158. We don’t eat fish much because my husband is a “fish snob.” He grew up on the coast, so fish is never fresh enough for him unless we are visiting the coast. I love to eat fish, however, and I should really “force” him to eat it more often since it’s so good for us. In the meantime, the only fish we eat here at home is fish sticks which I fix when he is out of town!

  159. Grilled, with onions! 🙂

  160. Preparedmom says:

    Salmon grilled by my b-i-l on the bbq with lots of lemon slices, sweet onion slices, butter and brown sugar. MMMM!

  161. LOVE fish tacos at our house, but it has been awhile since we’ve had them!

  162. Jennifer McB. says:

    Living in Alaska I have the benefit of having fresh fish all year round. my parents live in Ninilchik which is a little fishing village on the Kenai Peninsula. I love to fry halibut, broil halibut, stick it in the crockpot, I also broil salmon or bake it and sometimes even have it on the grill with teriyaki sauce. Hope you all enjoy it! The cook it frozen techniques I will be using alot more!!

  163. Karen Thornton says:

    I love to bake or grill my salmon with plain ol’ salt and pepper. Sometimes I add some lemon pepper seasoning. My husband won’t eat fish…so really, anytime I get fish (no matter how it is prepared) I LOVE IT!

  164. I love fish on the grill on the wooden plank boards!

  165. my husband loves salmon, I still am trying to like it…but I love a good ol’ fish fry– beer battered trout, walleye, perch….yum! But since most of the fish I eat now is store bought, I love any white fish broiled.

  166. Lee Herczogh says:

    We love to bake salmon after marinating it in an asian sauce. We also LOVE to roll tilapia in bread crumbs and parmesan cheese and bake it! Yum Yum! The kids eat it up!

  167. Grilled. With a little olive oil. Salt. Pepper…. yum.

  168. I’m not a huge fan of fish but I am trying to work on it. The only way I have prepared it is brushing it with olive oil and sprinkling seasonings on it and then baking it in the oven.

  169. Actually, my favorite way to enjoy fish is at a seafood restaurant, but would still love to win your giveaway!

  170. Brandy F says:

    We eat alot of tuna but, not much of anything else. I would love to see more fish on our dinner plates!

  171. Ashley F says:

    We like to grill it.

  172. My favorite way to prepare fish is to let someone else grill it! I admit to being not-so-great at cooking fish & it always ends up overcooked. I’d be very interested in cooking it from frozen. Thanks!

  173. Donnisha says:

    I love to baked my fish, I never tried to grill salmon.

  174. fried catfish is the best

  175. We love to grill Salmon on a Cedar Plank or make fish tacos w/ battered halibut, yummy!!

  176. we like to keep it simple with salt, pepper, and garlic broiled in the oven.

  177. I really love my fish raw! I’m a huge fan of seared tuna, tuna sushi and salmon sushi. I also like lox. I’m interested in trying their cooked fish though!

  178. We love fish cooked any way. But, in the summer, grilling it is the best.

  179. Amanda Y. says:

    I like Salmon (cooked by someone else because of the pink color, I always overcook it!) with a sweet asian glaze!

  180. Probably every week or every other week I make salmon grilled with a sesame teriyaki sauce. I actually just made cod with dill and lemon which was yummy too so I would be so happy winning this

  181. I love fish blackened, it’s my favorite!

  182. Stephanie says:

    We have two favorite ways. On the grill in foil packets with dill lemon juice and a dab of butter. Or in the house seared and then into the oven coated in eggwash and dredged in WW breadcrumbs a little salt and pepper and basil and oregano.

  183. Bethanny says:

    I really enjoy marinated baked or grilled fish. Overall, grilled is my favorite 🙂

  185. we do alot of grilled fish….its my husband’s favorite!

  186. Tracy Stone says:

    I found a recipe in Real Simple magazine long ago that said to put about an inch of kosher salt in a cast iron pot and let it start smoking (medium heat?) and then put a piece of salmon on it skin side down and cook for about 12 minutes. So simple (ha!)! Tasty, too!

  187. I love to pan sear the fish and then serve it with a dollap of some chile lime butter I make. Yummmmmm.

  188. For salmon we love it spread lightly with mayo and then sprinkled heavily with dried dill weed. Bake in a hot oven (~425) for about 20 min, depends how thick the filets are. The mayo gets kind of crusty and yummy.

    For shrimp we love it roasted! Just about 5 min in a hot oven (450) after drizzling with a little olive oil, S&P. Delish!!

  189. grilled salmon, marinated in teriyaki sauce is one of our favorites!

  190. I love me some fish! And my family loves fish, too. Our favorite is salmon grilled after marinating in a Sprite + soy sauce + lemon juice mixture… or rainbow trout grilled with a little salt and pepper!

  191. We like our fish fried or grilled. Tastes great either way.

  192. We love grilled salmon – use the George Foreman grill when we can’t get outside. Would love to try the Cook It Frozen technique.
    Thanks for the websites and the giveaway!

  193. I would love this! My husband really likes blackened fish but it’s so expensive that we rarely have it!

  194. I love seafood…especially at Red Lobster! I have also found that I like the new fish tacos that are at a lot of Mexican restaurants. I tried making some but they weren’t too tasty. I need a better recipe.

  195. This is a great giveaway. I’m currently cooking my way through the year, posting one fish recipe a month to encourage other families to try more fish as well. We’re having a great time. I love blackened fish, but from what we’ve tried this year, my favorite has been Parm Encrusted Tilapia (

  196. Lonelle Minesinger says:

    My ten year old loves to go fishing!! However I hate to clean them! lol So I make Grandpa clean them and then he (thinks) he cooks them all by himself!!!

  197. I like to season it with butter & Lemon Pepper, then broil. I love to try fish in new ways too!

  198. thanks for the chance to win. I love salmon in the oven with a pecan crusted coating. i also enjoy fried shrimp. and crab cakes. my list could go on for hours!

  201. We love to make a soy sauce glaze for our salmon.

  202. Sadly fish doesn’t fit into our dental student budget very often but I love plain ol butter salt and pepper on my salmon.

  203. I’ve heard of this company before, but now I’ll definitely have to research them some more! My husband is from the west coast of Africa and prefers fish whole (eyes and all). We like to season it with salt & pepper and fresh lemon juice!

  204. I’m still learning what our favorite way is, since I’ve tried adding more into our diets. I’ve had more “eh…” results than “yum” ones, and it’s wearing me out. Receiving a bunch of fish and a new recipe book would surely get me going again, though!

  205. Angelica Morales says:

    We have it on foil. I get Tilapia Fillet, and rinse, add olive oil, seasonings, and put it in a piece of foil with a matchstick piece of potatoe, tomato, carrot, fresh green pepper, or Jalapeno pepper, onion, mushroom, and fold it into a pocket so the steam can cook it, and you can cook it on the toaster oven, oven or a griddle. Soo good with white rice, and veggies.

  206. Hi I love fresh fish on the BBQ with a little bit of ketchup or tartar sauce. Fresh fish is the best not that we get a chance to eat it too often where I am. We do get to fish but always catch and release. Not that you can eat sunfish. lol

  207. Im not a fish fan, but my husband and son love it. My husband makes it for breakfast for him and our son on the weekends. He fries tilapia up with butter and garlic.

  208. Kelsey M says:

  211. I love blackened salmon over a bed of noodles with spicy cream sauce. Wonderful!

  212. Angela P. says:

    I usually end up cooking our fish on the stove top or in the oven. We haven’t mastered cooking fish on the grill yet. I’ve actually done the “Cook it Frozen” technique. I thought I was just unprepared, next time I’ll have to inform hubby that it’s a new cooking method. Thanks for a chance to win this.

  213. Rebecca Shepard says:

    My favorite way to enjoy fish is fried red snapper prepared by hubby with homemade tartar sauce done by my son. That inconjunction with homemade biscuits and fries. Not the healthiest thing by far but the tastiest and done on occasion. I also like salmon and halibut baked with s&p, and a pinch of EVOO to keep them from drying out.

  214. We love fish off the grill, with just a little olive oil and spices…yummy! Even better with some pesto on top! Thanks for having the giveaway!

  215. Tessa B. says:

    We love baked salmon with Montreal steak seasoning and we love salmon burgers! Yum!!!!

  216. We like maple glazed salmon baked in the oven. YUM!!

  217. Grilled outside with a touch of lemon!

  218. Uuummmm, fish tacos! I love fish tacos. Even my husband who doesn’t like fish very much will eat fish tacos. They must be deep fried though.

  219. I love my fish just with butter. Mmmm!

  220. I DESPISE any type of fish, but my hubby ADORES it…he likes it prepared with a honey mustard glaze that I make. He loves Salmon and Tilapia.

  222. I love to broil my salmon with a little butter and dill…
    So good.

  223. Charity Shapiro says:

    I love salmon! My favorite way to cook it is on the grill.

  224. We don’t eat much seafood around here. We intend on adding more to our diet and am loving reading all these reponses on everyone’s favorite ways to prepare it! In the past my favorite way to cook salmon is to brush it with olive oil and wrap in foil and put on the grill!

  225. TaylorBunch says:

    If I eat fish, it has to be wild salmon, fresh, and from the grill with a little olive oil, black pepper, and dill.

  226. Marilyn K says:

    Shrimp Tomato Basil Linguine is my favorite to make at home. I love seafood dishes at restaurants also! Would love to win the package with Alaskan fish.

  227. Rosanne W says:

    Salmon and Talapia are my favorites when I ‘m being healthy but some lightly breaded and fried catfish nuggets are very tasty!

    Thanks for the give away and recipe ideas!

  228. we love baked in a foil fish with a hint of spice (what ever you have) and olive oil

  231. Kristine Thornton says:

    I love it baked with Lemon or dipped in egg and some bread crumbs and put in the frying pan! MMMMM. We love fish in our house and it is healthy so my doctor is happy!

  232. I am another of those people that loves seafood but would be much more likely to choose crab, shrimp, and scallops over fish. I have begun to enjoy white fish and tilapia though…I try to eat them grilled so they are healthier. Thank you for the chance to win.

  233. I use lemon juice, Parmesan Cheese, salt and pepper! A classic that never fails.

  234. One of the easiest fish suppers we prepare is to season Salmon fillets with cajun seasoning and roast in the oven at about 400 for 15-20 min. The edges turn out crispy and the inside is succulent. Would love to be able to afford wild Alaskan salmon more often and free would be even better!

  235. Michelle M. says:

    I LOVE fish any way it’s cooked!!!!!!!

  236. I LOVE crab! My husband surprised me for mother’s day with Alaskan king crab legs. He just threw it on the grill and it was WONDERFUL!!

  237. My absolute favorite was at a restaurant that closed several years ago – grilled mahi with a pineapple salsa. At home, I like blackened snapper.

  238. Michelle says:

    We like fish just about any way it is prepared. We especially like baked salmon.

  239. I like it when my husband grills it. Yum Yum ;).

    We marinate it for about 20 minutes in lemon and olive oil and rosemary and grill it till done. Think I’ll have some tomorrow nite.

  247. I have to admit it, Im like you and would rather have shrimp. Lobster and Crab is at the top the list too. But I’d LIKE to like fish though. I think my fish adversion is based on those nasty fishsticks I had as a kid. LOL. I once had a bite of a friends Salmon in Florida that was cooked on one of those wooden planks and I have to say it was WONDERFUL. My husband loves fish. Id really like to start to enjoy it so my 3 yr old son will eat it too. So, this would be a great win for the whole family.

  248. I love fried fish!

  249. We make salmon on the grill in individual foil packets. Everyone puts a salmon fillet and whatever veggies they like in foil with a pat of butter and seasonings of their choice. Seal up the foil and pop it on the grill – super easy, super delicious.

  250. Love blackened salmon on the grill

  251. When I eat fish it’s usually cod and I bake it in the oven, however I would like to expand my horizons and try new types of fish and cooking techniques.

  260. Ellen C. says:

    I love having my seafood broiled. Thanks for the chance.

  262. I LOVE fish. I love it ALL including sushi. My favorite way is fried but since I’m trying to eat healthy I try to avoid fried foods. Blackened fish is awesome too.

  263. All I know how to do is bake tilapia with a little olive oil and garlic salt. I don’t think my family would use the word “enjoy”. Off to check out the Alaska Seafood Website because I could definitely use some help!

  264. We love brown sugar glazed salmon or pecan crusted tilapia.

  265. I love grilled salmon with honey, mustard, brown sugar that my brother taught me how to make. YUM!

  266. My favorite fish is salmon– I’m not very good at cooking it, but once I made a garlic ginger salmon that was really good. I’ll have to check out this website– I always feel I should buy more salmon, but wild salmon is so expensive! What a great giveaway.

  267. Anna Banana says:

    Love some fish! My favorite way to eat fish is wrapped in a taco shell! YUM!

  268. I love to cook fish because my kids and my husband looooove it!! I simply coat the fish with Shake and Bake Extra Crispy and then bake it in the oven. I also like to buy fresh fish from the local supermarket.

  269. I put lemon juice, lemon pepper, sliced red peppers and lemon slices on top of salmon and wrap in foil. Bake at 400 for about 20 minutes.

  270. I really like fish, but not fried like catfish that many in the south enjoy. I have never prepared fish myself b/c my mom rarely did and my husband is not a fish fan. I would love to change his mind and introduce good fish to my kids. I love grilled fish-tuna, salmon, mahi mahi. Yum!

  271. We like fish grilled, but also eat tilapia baked. I dip it in egg, then in a breading made of parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes and pepper.

  272. Karin Alvarado says:

    I love salmon with lemon and vegetables wrapped in foil and baked. Simple but so tasty. i will usually add red pepper as well to add a little kick.

  273. My favorite way to enjoy seafood is salmon marinated in olive oil, soy sauce, chili pepper and garlic and then grilled to perfection!

  283. We have fish on a regular basis, either salmon or tilapia. My husband grew up in the NW and it’s a favorite dinner meal for him.

  284. My favorite way to enjoy fish is to have my son fix it for us! Usually this involves grilling–his fav way of cooking.

  285. I love to bake salmon in the oven with some smokey paprika and chili lime sea salt sprinkled on top! It is really good served with roasted honey balsamic yams!

  288. I like to order salmon at restaurants.

  291. Jennifer says:

  292. kristi juette says:

    We love salmon baked with dill and brown sugar. A little sweet and a little savory. Very delicious!

  293. a few years ago I found a recipe for Pecan crusted salmon… It is fabulous. We don’t get to enjoy it very often because salmon is expensive on the east coast, but it still our favorite fish.

  294. I make poor man’s lobster. Bring a large pot of water to boil (3-4 qt). Add the juice of one lemon and 3-4 Tbsp. sugar. Cut each large cod loin into 3 chunks (crosswise). (In our house, a serving is 1 1/2 to 2 loins — or 6-9 chunks — per person.) Gently place the fish into the boiling water; reduce to a simmer. When the fish floats, it’s done. Our family enjoys dipping these in butter — like lobster!

  295. The only “fish” I like to eat is mesquite grilled salmon. I want to try out new kinds though since fish is typically quite healthy…

  296. My favorite way is any way that my dad cooks it. He usually broils fish but the seasonings are amazing and he changes them all the time. His favorite fish to use is tilapia because my mom doesn’t like “fishy” fish. But if my dad is cooking, I’ll take any kind of fish…It is amazing!

  297. Lynette E says:

    One of my favorite ways to prepare tilapia is to bake it in a large ceramic dish with sliced, tri-colored pepppers and onions, oregano, garlic, salt, pepper, white balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Bake at 425 until the fish is white and flaky. YUM!

  298. Stephanie R says:

    I love fish, just about any way you fix it. I just wish I could get my husband to eat it.

  299. Jennifer Ford says:

    Sushi, sushi, sushi! Although, grilled with lemon and butter ain’t bad either 🙂

  300. Christina says:

    Well, my favorite way to enjoy fish is on a date at a nice restaurant with my hubby. But, since we are trying to pay off debt, my next favorite would be grilled. My husband swore he didn’t like salmon, but I grilled some and made a fresh salsa to serve over it. YUM. He even ate seconds.

  301. I love fish. fish tacos with halibut. salmon with lemon and dill. shrimp. sushi. yep, I like fish.

  302. Fish is great every way but lately I’ve been on a fish taco kick.

  303. Great giveaway, I love eating it just like you did – a little olive oil, seasoning and on the grill, yum!

  304. I am fairly new to your site. I have been reading and studying all about freezer cooking and have tried a couple of the recipes I have found here and plan to fill my freezer this summer. This is the bestest give away ever. We love fish. And I love it best outside on the grill……that is because I hate the smell of it in the house the next day. I even set up my George Foreman grill on the patio in the winter (when it is too cold to start the big grill) to cook our fish. I oh so want to win….

  305. Maple grilled salmon! Yum!

  306. I like my fish/seafood sauteed, grilled, baked or broiled. I also like the idea of cooking it from frozen.

  307. berkeley says:

    Drizzle a salmon fillet with soy sauce and honey and then wrap it in foil and bake it. It’s awesome!!! My fiance left yesterday for 5 weeks of fishing in Alaska so hopefully he’ll be bringing back lots and lots of salmon and halibut 🙂

  308. Brandette Winblad says:

    We LOVE salmon in our house. I bake it in the oven, it is topped with mayo and spices. Sounds weird being topped with mayo, but years ago when I first started cooking a butcher gave me the receipe and we have loved it ever since.

  309. I’m not much of a fish lover, either, but when I have it I prefer it fried and served with ketchup. However, I have learned it’s best to eat only wild caught fish instead of farm raised, so this offer is tempting. Thanks!

  310. Our family likes salmon. I prepare it in the oven with some lemon juice or in foil on the bbq. Makes me hungry just writing about it!

  311. Yummy, sounds delicious! I love grilled salmon with lemon juice and soy sauce, or baked talapia with mayo, lemon juice, butter, and parmesan.

  312. What a great giveaway!

  313. I love fish any way it is cooked.

  314. Tammy D. says:

    well..a bit embarrassing, but besides a McDonalds Filet O Fish I’ve never had fish! I have been wanting to try it…..I keep saying I’m going to, but well you know then I chicken out! lol But this would so make me try it and everyone raves about salmon.

  315. WHOA! Cool giveaway. We love fish but don’t get it much. Oven- fried catfish nuggets is a recent meal- very good and healthy! If the fish fairy dropped down, we’d wish for salmon!

  316. What a great giveaway! I am also trying to learn to love fish and get more of it in our diets. My favorite fish recipe is to make salmon cakes out of canned salmon. My 5 year old loves them!

  317. My husband is the BEST fish cooker. Typically it’s on the grill but he also has a method in the frying pan as well. He has just the right seasonings and not overcooked–which is a common mistake. My favorite is salmon. Thanks for the giveaway!

  318. We like our fish baked, broiled or grilled. With homemade tartar sauce on the side.

  319. Kathleen says:

    I love salmon served with a mint vinaigrette, cherry tomatoes and diced red onion!

  320. Cool giveaway! I really like to skewer shrimp on the grill with homamade cocktail sauce. Yum!

  321. For me, the more simply fish is cooked, the better. Some butter and seasonings are perfect in my opinion. Maybe a light sauce. The fish you grilled looks great!

  322. My favorite way to eat fish is to do it slowly and enjoy every minute of it! I am a simple girl and this simple girl likes her fish grilled with a bit of melted butter drizzled over top – that’s it. Delicious!!!!

  323. Julie Gillen says:

    Fish tacos are always good!!

  324. For us, the simpler the better. Brush salmon with a little butter or olive oil, sprinkle with dill and bake.

  325. marinated in italian dressing and grilled with some rosemary on top!

  326. mimi1214 says:

    Love a cedar plank salmon!

  327. This is a great give a way!


  328. We love to grill our salmon with a little Italian dressing squirt all over it. Yum! Now my mouth is watering.

  329. I like you am not the biggest fish fan but i do love a good grilled fish steak (mahi mahi, tuna) every now and then. My husband is super excited about this contest. He LOVES fish any way he can get it.

  330. fish tacos 🙂

  331. we love grilled fish tacos. yum

  332. I love broiled fish with lemon and cilantro…mmmm!

  333. I love all kinds of seafood. I like to put olive oil & salt on both sides of salmon and sear for 2 minutes each side in a hot pan. Then into the oven for a few minute to finish off. Or I just poach it in a little water on top of the stove. I would love to win this…great prize 🙂

  334. I concocted a recipe using cod topped with tomatoes, olives, shredded cheese & bread crumbs, among a variety of spices. Mmmmm.

  335. Hmmm – probably breaded and fried……… LOL

  336. Jennifer says:

    I like it just about any way!

  337. My husband would so love this giveaway! We usually just bread and bake/fry the fish that he catches. I’d love to try some on the grill though!

  338. We LOVE salmon on the grill… our favorite recipe is Asian Grilled Salmon.

  339. Grilled salmon with some spicy-sweet mustard sauce (Trader Joe’s makes a great one) and some fresh grilled asparagus on the side.

  340. I LOVE fish! I recently cooked salmon in foil in the oven with butter, lemon, & herbs. It came out very moist & yummy!

  341. I am just beginning to eat fish for the same reason that you do- the health benefits. My husband doesn’t like it though so buying fresh fish isn’t really an option. This sounds like the perfect thing for me especially since as of right now I only eat cod and salmon. I am going to TRY to branch out further in the future but for right now that’s my comfort zone.

    As of yet I don’t prepare fish at home- I order it out because of my husband not liking it. But several times a month he works late and I’m on my own for dinner so this would work well for those times.

  342. We do not eat alot of fish either. I had grilled salmon for the first time last month, prepared by my cousin’s husband and it was Fantastic!! I love fried catfish. Otherwise, I am not really big on fish but I am going to get some salmon and grill it soon!

  343. My favorite way to enjoy fish is on someone elses plate but my family loves it. So, we bake it, fry it and grill it. I would love to win…

  344. I love salmon…I just brush dijon mustard on top on the salmon…sprinkle with breadcrumbs…drizzle with a little butter and pop it in the oven for 20 minutes…delicious!

  345. I love it baked with a garlic butter crumb top! Yum!

  349. Nancy from Mass says:

    Salmon and Cod, two of my absolute favorite fish! (I am allergic to shellfish and can only eat certain fish – these are 2 of them). My favorite salmon recipe is with soy sauce, sesame oil, grated ginger. marinated and sauteed in my cast iron pan. or on the grill with salt and pepper, or baked, or…(I could go on and on about salmon. (I tried real alaskan salmon in the 80’s when my parents visited friends there and they fished for salmon daily. they shipped some home for all of us to enjoy.mmmmm) My favorite cod…beer battered and shallow-fried or baked. Or wait…fish pie with cod. yum! Thanks for the chance to win some!

  350. I’ve been trying to add more fish to our diet. This would be wonderful!

  351. I’m from another country and sometimes I miss fresh fish (Obviously Kansas City is miles away from the sea 😛 )

    I love salmon!!! cooked in the grill, baked or smoked salmon with crackers & cream cheese.

    I usually cook fish baked with some fresh tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, onions and dill.

  352. Yummy! I like my fish grilled with just some garlic and salt. Usually I go for any mild white fish, but I’ve just started coming around to salmon.

  353. tracylynne says:

    Cedar plank salmon on the grill is my personal fav. We have started eating fish once a week-even though good fresh fish is hard to find in OK we don’t mind frozen.

  354. I like salmon baked in the oven or grilled with herbs and lemon juice.

  355. We love swordfish but since having moved from an area of the country that was always less than an hour’s drive to the ocean to a land-locked state, it’s very difficult to find good fresh fish. That said, some frozen fish is not all that bad. I haven’t tried the CIF technique, so that should help a bit. In terms of a good swordfish recipe: season with lemon & pepper mixture (we use Mrs. Dash or some other salt-free version). Heat olive oil and a bit of butter in a skillet over high heat (watch it), sear your fish, then turn down heat to low/med. Add in chopped garlic and white wine. Cook til flaky.

  356. Living by the Great Lakes, we love out Walleye and perch. I like to put them in foil, with butter, seasonings, and some veggies and then wrap them up and steam them up on the grill, delicious!

  357. Connie Corey says:

    Grilled salmon with just fresh cracked black pepper and a touch of fresh lemon juice….mmmmm….

  358. Yum and yum! I’m trying to recreate the Seared Citrus Salmon on Angel Hair Pasta they serve at the Nordstrom Cafe. I haven’t figured it out quite yet, but the attempts have all been delicious!

  359. As a mom of four, I find it hard to get my kids to eat fish, and i don’t mean the frozen processed kind either. But they do like one type of fish and how I make it. Wild Salmon sprinkled with salmon seasoning and butter and baked in the oven. They devour it every time!

  360. Yum.. I love fish! We just fry it in a pan with seasonings mostly.

  361. Any fish grilled is fantastic! We have a spicy Cuban tuna steak recipe that we love.

  362. Usually I just bake fish with a little seasoning; however, grilling is my favorite because then my hubby makes dinner 😉

  363. We love grilled fish. Great giveaway!

  364. I’d be lying if I claimed that my favorite way to eat fish was something other than fried.

    But, as I’m growing up (I’m 36), I’m learning to love grilled fish as well.

    As someone else said, my favorite thing about eating fish is that hubby makes it.

    Grilled or smoked salmon is a favorite at our houses

  366. My favorite way to enjoy fish? Probably not the healthiest way, but I love me some good old fashioned fish and chips with malt vinegar. Reminds me of my honeymoon!

  367. Honestly, I don’t eat fish. My husband LOVES IT!!! I never make it, so he would love this. He loves fish any way it is prepared.

  368. We put ours on a broiler in the oven. Yummy!

  369. Our family loves to grill fish! Nothing fancy just a little lemon to finish it.

  370. I like to enjoy fish on DH’s plate. I’m not a fan of fish, but he is. When we go out to eat, I suggest he get the fish. He’d love to have some good fish at home, and summer is coming, so on the grill sounds great.

  371. Fish tacos from Rubio’s or Pedro’s. YUMMY!

  372. I love shrimp, cooked any way!

  373. my favorite is lemon pepper fish!!!

  374. Mmmmmm! I love salmon either broiled or grilled. I just got one of those grill grates for my grill and didn’t even think about it helping with the fish. Thanks for the help and opportunity! Blessings

  375. We love wild Alaskan salmon at our house. Broiled with some salt, pepper, garlic and a little lemon. Yummmmm.

  376. Honestly I never cook fish at home because my hubby doesn’t like it and I can’t justify spending the money on fish just for me! Kids are picky about it. I often get shrimp or crab cakes when we go out to eat though. Yum! Would love to try this at home!

  377. Cajun style on the grill. YUM! Thanks!

  378. yum! I love fish of all kinds, cooked pretty much any way!

  379. Grilled salmon is the best!

    We love to eat fish! Our favorite way to prepare it is on the grill; however, since we have moved to an apartment, we now eat it from the oven (just put on some salt/pepper and lemons). Yummo!

  391. I love salmon broiled on a preheated cast-iron griddle. My favorite marinade is tandoori paste (patak’s brand) mixed with thick yogurt and some butter. It’s so delicious I’ve converted some non-fish-eaters.

  396. MMmm! I love fish! I tend to order fish if we go out to dinner, but that doesn’t happen too often these days.

    When we eat fish at home, I love either salmon or tuna on the grill. Mmmmmm!

    We love Tilapia cooked on the grill. It’s one of our favorite meals.

  404. Hey! Here in Michigan, you gotta love fish! My husband is an avid fisherman (& I would be too if my hands weren’t full of kids most of the time!), and I love getting a hoard of bluegills, baking them in the oven w/ a little butter and a sprinking of parmesan cheese – yummy! I’d love to try the salmon and cod – thanks!
