Boston-Style Beer-Battered Fish and Chips

Salmon BLT

Catfish Wrap with Avocado and Tomato Salsa

When most folks think about making a fish spread, it’s all about salmon or maybe tuna. While both fish make great spreads, it’s easy to make a delicious fish spread with just about any type of fish. I like to…

Dungeness Crab Cakes

Also works with picked blue crab and, if you’re out of crab, cooked flaky white-fleshed fish fillets work well, too. Just make sure that the crab meat has been patted dry with two-ply paper towels. If it’s too wet, it won’t hold together when cooked. Serve with flavored aioli, tartar sauce, clarified butter or cocktail…
