Fish Steak Recipes
For a fish so large it cannot be filleted properly, such as tuna, large salmon, halibut or swordfish, steaks are the way to go. Thick, meaty steaks are the perfect fish for grilling or broiling, and lend themselves to heartier dishes than do delicate fillets.

Choosing and Storing Fish
The first step to a fantastic fish meal is choosing the freshest seafood you can find. Being a good seafood cook means being flexible: If the flounder isn't great, switch to seabass. If the crab looks iffy, try the shrimp. But how do you make that choice? It's easy if you know what to look for.
