Asian food has so many amazing flavors and textures to enjoy, whether it’s Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, Thai or from a different country altogether. At the Healthy Fish, we love that some of our favorite top chefs are cooking with fish and shellfish. We’ve rounded up some of their tastiest Asian-inspired recipes for five easy-to-make seafood dishes. Ready to get cooking?
Gordon Ramsay’s Teriyaki Salmon
The sweetness of soy and maple syrup combine with the spice of ginger in Gordon Ramsay’s Teriyaki Salmon recipe, perfect for an easy weeknight dinner. Simply marinate the salmon in ginger, garlic, soy sauce, rice wine and olive oil, then pan fry. The sauce caramelizes and the flavors deepen as you cook, making for a rich but healthy fish dinner.
Jamie Oliver’s Asian Noodle Broth with Fish
If you feel like an Asian-inspired meal that is warm and comforting but has a bit of a kick, look no further than this Asian Noodle Broth with Fish recipe from Jamie Oliver. Tender pieces of fish fillet float in a spicy broth with egg noodles, water chestnuts and snap peas. The recipe calls for sole, but you could easily substitute whatever white fish you have on hand. His Vietnamese Fish Hot Pot is another good option for a chilly day.
Sherson Lian’s Grilled Tilapia with Potato Gnocchi
If you’re new to Malaysian cuisine, Sherson Lian’s simple Grilled Tilapia with Potato Gnocchi recipe is a great place to start—the inclusion of gnocchi gives the dish a bit of Italian flair. Lian calls for a tender Tilapia fillet to be marinated in a paste of garlic, coriander and other spices while you make the gnocchi and sear them on the stove. Finally, grill the Tilapia for seven to nine minutes in a preheated oven and enjoy!
Rachael Ray’s Thai Green Curry with Shrimp
Thai food is getting more popular all the time, so this Thai Green Curry with Shrimp recipe from Rachael Ray is right on trend—and only takes about 15 minutes to make.
Simply cook the red pepper, shallot, green curry paste and vegetable oil in a pot for three minutes. Then, add the shrimp, coconut milk, spinach and fish sauce and cook for another five minutes. Serve it up with rice and lime wedges, and dinner is ready! Ray’s Miso-Glazed Tilapia is another tasty option.
Wolfgang Puck’s Asian-Style Steamed Snapper
Served with baby bok choy, Wolfgang Puck’s Asian-Style Steamed Snapper is a healthier alternative to fried fish. The recipe calls for snapper, but Puck notes that you can easily substitute any fresh fish that’s available from your fishmonger. The steaming process means the fish fully absorbs the flavors from the ginger, lime leaves, citrus zest, cilantro, scallions, white wine, jalapeno and peanut oil. It’s no surprise that this is one of the most popular dishes at Spago Beverly Hills.
