The Best Ways Restaurants Prepare Fish, Gulf Shores, Alabama

When going to a restaurant, many people choose dishes and cooking styles that they have never had before. This offers a great opportunity to try fish made in various ways. Here are some prep options restaurants often offer to help you choose what to order the next time you dine out.

Fish Preparation Options

Baked

Have you ever ordered baked fish and vegetables? This seaside classic includes ingredients that are all cooked together on one pan to create a unified flavor between the fillets and veggies. You can bake just about any kind of fish, but it’s helpful to keep the skin on for thinner cuts to prevent the meat from falling apart.

Fried

Panfish is excellent when fried. Whether you prefer flounder, grouper, or trigger, these tasty, thinner fish pair well with breading and hold onto batter nicely when fried in some hot oil. The crispiness this creates also causes a nice contrast to the soft fish’s texture.

Grilled

restaurantThicker, fattier fish is often grilled to provide heat from all directions while still offering a moist inside. For example, restaurants often grill grouper, mahi-mahi, or yellowfin tuna planks to maintain the coloring and flaky texture without drying out the meat.

Seared

Many restaurants pan fry fish to give it a crispy brown outside while maintaining a moist inside. This method is well-suited for whitefish fillets. However, if a fish monger removes the scales, it can also be tasty to sear flounder and snapper with the skin on for an extra crispy texture.
