Steaming is an ideal cooking method for fish, preserving the seafood's delicate flavor while keeping it moist. Here you'll find recipes for Asian- and Italian-style steamed fish, Belgian steamed mussels, New England steamed clams, and more.
Snapper, a popular white-fleshed fish with a firm texture and mild flavor, is great for all kinds of preparations: grilling, searing, frying, braising, steaming, and more. Gray snapper and yellowtail or rainbow snapper wild-caught in the U.S. are among the most ocean-friendly choices.
Any firm-fleshed white fish is the perfect vehicle for this deep-flavored, earthy sauce; you can also try it with fresh sea scallops. If you don't want to flour the fish, place all the ingredients in a parchment paper or foil pouch and bake in the oven instead.
