No beach? No problem! This vibrant shrimp bowl recipe from Damn Delicious brings the ocean to you and features all our favorite summer flavors! Coat your shrimp in a mixture of soy sauce, garlic, honey, lime zest, and sriracha, then grill. Serve over a bed of rice and add fresh tomatoes, corn, and avocado. Pro tip: Grill your veggies as well to create the quintessential summer bowl!
This quick-and-easy Goodtaste recipe delivers the flavors of a classic shrimp boil on a convenient summer-ready skewer. When grilling shrimp, make sure your grates are super clean. This will give you the best grill marks and ensure that the shrimp don’t stick to the grate. We like to serve these skewers with charred lemons for squeezing and grilled bread for sopping up all of the delicious garlicky Old Bay butter.
Easy parchment paper packets make this dish from Bon Appétit hands-off and allow the fish to baste in its own juices until tender and flaky. Here, flaky white fish is cooked with ripe summer ingredients like cherry tomatoes and yellow squash.
Fish-and-chips just got a weeknight makeover! This Goodtaste original recipe has everything you love about the classic English pub food, but no frying, less mess, and much more ease. Plus, we have a clever kitchen hack for extra-crispy baked fish!
Bring the beach to you this Taco Tuesday! These tacos hit all the right notes: crispy coconut-crusted fish, a creamy fresh slaw, sweet pineapple, and a dab of hot sauce. These versatile tacos can be made with almost any white fish.
Watermelon is the star in this refreshing summer ceviche. Make this dish while the fruit is at its peak and bursting with flavor—the sweetness mellows out the intense acidity from the lime juice. If you’re sensitive to heat, add the serrano pepper sparingly.
