Make tasty grilled shrimp with an easy, garlicky tomato-vinegar marinade.

Caribbean Crab Souffle

Rating: 4.5 stars 27
My dad always makes this souffle on Christmas Eve when guests are over. It is equally delicious made with lobster.

Spanish Cod

Rating: 4.5 stars 191
A delicious Spanish cod recipe with a pungent tomato sauce, green olives, and marinated vegetables. Throw some jumbo shrimp in with the fish for an even more delicious and impressive meal.

Cod Curry

Rating: 4.5 stars 145
This tomato based curry may be modified for hotness depending on quantity of spices and number of jalapeno peppers used. It is a great favourite with my family - I make it about once a month.

Pan-Fried Swai Fillets

Rating: 4.5 stars 15
My husband loves fish. Since I am allergic, I don't partake. Swai was on sale at the grocery so we picked some up. Since he has never tried it before, I decided to cook it in a familiar way for him. He devoured it. I served this with honeyed carrots and fried yellow squash.

Creamy Herbed Pork Chops

Rating: 4.5 stars 998
Seasoned pork chops are pan-seared and drenched in an herby cream sauce.

Chef John's Shrimp and Grits

Rating: 5 stars 342
Shrimp and grits is a very simple recipe, but make sure you have everything ready before you start cooking the shrimp. They only take a few minutes to sauté, so you don't have time to run and chop scallions or juice a lemon. Once everything is assembled, this recipe is a snap. To make things even easier, you can make the grits a bit ahead since they stay hot a very long time.

Chef John's Salmon

Rating: 4.5 stars 307
I love the combination of tarragon and Italian parsley, but I've used herbs like basil and thyme, which worked wonderfully as well. As far as the fish goes, a center-cut salmon filet is a perfect thickness for this, but other similarly shaped seafood will work.

Chef John's Salmon in Parchment

Rating: 5 stars 132
Cooking fish in parchment paper is incredibly simple, and yet fairly terrifying for a novice cook. Since the seafood is encased in paper, there's really no good way to check if it's done. The good news: if you use a large, center-cut salmon filet, about 8 or 9 ounces, and cook it for 15 minutes at 400 degrees F, you're going to be very, very close.
