cod with rice and tomato

Fish is a healthy way to get proteins and omega-3 fatty acids. Here are some great fish recipes for inspiration, whether you are hosting a dinner for a pescatarian friend, or simply trying a new recipe on an ordinary evening.

Salmon quinoa burgers

Besides grilled, fried or baked fish, why not try burgers? This salmon quinoa burger recipe from Skinnytaste is an inventive and exciting way to stay healthy, while still giving a nod to the comfort of the burger.

Also included in the recipe is a wonderful salad to serve it with, although you are of course free to serve it any way you wish.

Crispy baked fish

For a family-friendly fish recipe, look no further than this crispy baked fish from Two Kooks in the Kitchen. This is a no-mess, no-fuss way to cook, since there is no frying involved.

The breading makes this meal appealing to picky eaters and to those who may not normally be keen on fish.

The recipe suggests serving it with your favorite dipping sauce, which is a great way to make it appealing to children.

Bengali fish pulao

Delicious, creamy and a little spicy, this Bengali fish pulao from NDTV Food is certain to be a hit. If you like ethnic foods, particularly Indian foods, you'll notice some familiar ingredients in this recipe. For our U.S. readers, please note that coriander leaves are the same thing as cilantro, which you should find easily in the produce section of your grocery.

What I love about this recipe is how easy it would be to make it for as few or as many people as you'd like. The version given is done in a smaller sized skillet and is more suitable for one person, but you could easily scale it up in a bigger skillet. To feed a crowd, cook this in an electric skillet.

Thai coconut fish

For a deliciously smooth and creamy curry, you can't go wrong with this Thai coconut fish recipe from Land O Lakes. This is a particularly good recipe for those who are seeking a winter warming version of a fish dish.

For those seeking to get into ethnic foods or fusion foods, this recipe does not intimidate - either in the cooking or the eating.

Baked flounder with lemon and butter

Don't get worried about where to find flounder! This baked flounder recipe with lemon and butter from The Spruce clearly states that you can use it with other types of fish. So just buy whichever type of fish you want and make it with that. Best of all, this dish is baked not fried, so it's an easy, healthy and mess-free way to cook.

There is an optional garlic aioli that is also included in the recipe, but there is no need to do it if the thought stresses you out. It's designed as an add-on to serve it with, but the lemon and butter is included in the main recipe so your fish will have flavor without the aioli. And of course, if you do want to serve it with aioli but don't want to make your own, you can also simply buy a pre-made garlic aioli at the grocery store when you purchase the fish. I bet that the aioli in the recipe is much tastier though!

Pan-fried Tilapia

In most areas of the U.S., tilapia is one of the more affordable types of fish, making it an ideal choice as the star of a fish dish. As an added bonus, tilapia tends to hold together while cooking a lot better than most other types of fish, so you can't really go wrong.

For a great tilapia dish, try this pan-fried tilapia from Allrecipes.

Salmon with sun-dried tomato cream sauce

If you're looking for an easy and tasty recipe for a special occasion, then you'll love this salmon with sun-dried tomato cream sauce from EatingWell. This is a very rich recipe which includes some heavy cream, but if you're seeking to impress, this is the way to go!

You'll be glad to know that the salmon is baked in the oven while you prepare the sauce in a skillet, so it's a simple and efficient way to prepare the meal.

EatingWell suggests serving this dish with brown rice, which is a fantastic way to cut the richness of the creamy sauce and provide healthy fibre.

Baja Fish Tacos

These Baja fish tacos from The Food Network are the perfect option for a light yet filling meal. It's not a beginner's recipe - you'll need to do a little bit of shallow frying and plenty of cutting and measuring of the other ingredients. If you're a novice, pre-prep as much as you can of your ingredients before starting this one. But it's a good option when you're seeking to impress someone.

Tip: you may like to practice this one first before you serve it up to an audience.
