My hubby and I want to start eating healthier and fish is going to be one of the main staples in our diet. We don't really want fried fish because thats unhealthy. So any baked, grilled, etc recipies would be welcomed! I need to add some flavor to these fishy dishes. Thanks!  Cheesy

What kind of fish do you like?   That would help with the recipes. 

I love love love salmon.  Two ways I make it is with dill butter, and with Yoshida's teriaki sauce.  I love to grill them in some foil on my bbq.  hmm, let me think of any other ideas.

Salmon with Lemon and Parsley Couscous is lovely.

Simply grill or steam a salmon steak (per person) and serve with Couscous to which a little lemon juice and zest has been added along with a wee bit of chopped Parsley. We also have roasted Tomatoes with it... nice, light and very healthy.

... and I don't really like fish at all Smiley

salmon is also really nice with a maple glaze, just brush on a little maple syrup (not table syrup, go for the good stuff) during grilling, broiling or whatever. Its a very versatile fish

talapia filets are nice, and they cook up quick. Lemon and dill are good staples, and coarse ground salt and pepper.

I would definatly recommend tilapia or snapper if you aren't a fan of fish. They have a lighter texture and milder taste that salmon or tuna (both can be kind of heavy).  Both are good baked with a little butter and Cajun season salt or try poaching them and topping with some dill butter.
Here's a great poaching recipe http://www.cookingforengineers.com/recipe/92/Poached-Fish

I would recommend tilapia as well! It's very mild when it comes to 'fishiness'. I also cook a lot of salmon in foil on the grill. I just sprinkle it liberally with dried herbs and salt and pepper, wrap in foil and grill away!

Salmon with Lentils and Orange Basil Dressing is really tasty, easy, and fast. And not super "fishy." I found the recipe in Good Housekeeping...

2 1/4 cups water
1 cup brown lentils
Salt and ground black pepper
4 pieces salmon fillet with skin (about 6 ounces each)
1 to 2 navel oranges
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 cup loosely packed fresh basil leaves
2 medium shallots, finely chopped (about 1/4 cup)
1/2 cup loosely packed fresh parsley leaves, chopped

 1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In 2-quart saucepan, combine water, lentils, and 1/2 teaspoon salt; heat to boiling over high heat. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 20 to 30 minutes or until lentils are tender. Drain.

2. Meanwhile, spray 13" by 9" glass baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Arrange salmon in prepared dish, skin side down. Sprinkle with teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Roast salmon 15 to 20 minutes or just until opaque throughout.

3. While salmon is roasting, prepare orange-basil dressing: From oranges, grate 1 teaspoon peel and squeeze 1/3 cup juice. In small bowl, whisk orange peel and juice with mustard, 2 tablespoons oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Stir in basil.

4. In nonstick 10-inch skillet, heat remaining 1 teaspoon oil over medium heat. Add shallots and cook 2 minutes, stirring. Stir in lentils. Remove skillet from heat; stir in parsley and half of dressing (about 1/4 cup). Spread lentil mixture on platter. Arrange salmon on top of lentils and drizzle with remaining dressing.

i also like tilapia...i recommend breading and baking it, which can be done in all sorts of healthy ways (just plain bread crumbs should work, if nothing else), and then eating it with macaroni and cheese (you could probably use real cheese, but i use kraft or velveeta boxed stuff), and steamed broccoli. the three flavors (fish, broccoli, cheese) really compliment each other, especially if you dip the bites of fish in the cheese.

My favorite way to have fish is currently this:

TILAPIA PUTTANESCA  (or Tilapia Vera Cruz--basically the same thing--tomato sauce w/ olives, capers, garlic, etc.)

1.  Heat up a jar of Puttanesca sauce  (or a really good, rich tomatoey spaghetti sauce.)

2.  Pan-fry some tilapia filets in olive oil, adding salt and pepper to the fish somewhere along the way.

3.  Serve the tilapia either over or under the sauce. 

So easy and SO GOOD!

Salmon grilled on cedar planks...MMMMMMM.

Cod is easy, and not too fishy. It's really tasty poached, or broiled with a good seasoning.

I really like teriyaki on fish.
