12 Fresh Tuna Recipes That Are Ready in a Flash
High-quality fresh tuna requires almost no effort in the kitchen -- just a quick sear in a hot pan or brief turn on the grill. It's also delicious served raw and makes a spectacular burger. Here are our favorite recipes showcasing the tasty fish.
Simple Poached Salmon
A beautifully poached piece of salmon is clean tasting and light. There's only one rule: Don't overcook.
Mussels in White Wine and Garlic
Be sure to buy live mussels. Any open mussels that do not close when you press their shells a few times are dead, and you should discard them.
The pan juices that are released from baking the scallops mix with creme fraiche and white wine to create a delicious garlicky sauce. Serve this gratin with crusty bread for dipping, or for a heartier dish, serve over thin spaghetti tossed in olive oil.
Roasted Salmon with Butter
Best-selling cookbook author Mark Bittman says, "This basic recipe is easy and reliable, and the results taste great. You can use any thick fillet or fish steak in place of salmon -- swordfish and halibut are also good." This recipe is adapted from Bittman's "How to Cook Everything: The Basics."
