My go-to for protein is usually chicken. It’s cost-effective, quick, and so easy to make that you could do practically anything with it. However, I am trying to switch it up.

What is the Best Way to Cook Fish?
In the Oven
One of the easiest, and therefore potentially best, way to cook fish is in the oven. Add the ingredients, follow the instructions, then let the oven do its thing. As long as you don’t dry the fish out, it should be delicious and flaky! Try it out with these Easy Baked Fish Fillets. The oven makes the breadcrumbs a little crisp, adding a delicious crunch! To make sure they’re done, cook until the fish flakes easily with a fork. For a little more challenging of a dish, try these Rice Stuffed Baked Salmon. Putting the dish together is generally easy, but you’ll want to baste it often to get the flavor right.
In a Pan
If you’re like me, you like to have control over what you’re cooking. I find I have the most control when I am cooking over the stove rather than the oven and enjoy watching my ingredients transform into a meal in front of me. Pan-frying is one of the most popular ways to cook a fish. Try a recipe like Pan-Fried Fish with Peppers and Pecans for incredible flavor. When pan-frying, make sure to not overcrowd the pan or there will not be enough heat for them to cook properly!
On the Grill
Cooking on the grill is my absolute favorite way of cooking when the weather permits it. But, is it the best way to cook fish? That’s for you to decide! I love the flavors that come out on the grill. Grilled Salmon is one of my go-tos. It’s easy and tastes delicious! If you’re worried about cleanup since flaky fish can get messy, try putting a bed of sliced citrus down on your grill before placing the fish. It creates less mess! Another easy way is to find a recipe that calls for foil like this Citrus Fish.
