My favorite Whole30 fish dishes

White Fish Fillet Recipes

Fish en Papillote: Fish en Papillotte may sound fancy, but it’s an easy paleo dish with fish and vegetables steamed in a sealed paper packet with herbs and a tasty sauce. It tastes as good as it looks!

Fiona’s Phenomenal Fish Packets: Do you love My Sister’s Phenomenal Green Chicken recipe? Then you’ll go ga-ga for Fiona’s Phenomenal Fish Packets!  My sister’s zippy green marinade is the perfect sauce to flavor fish and veggie parchment pouches. In 30 minutes flat, this herb-y, healthy dinner’s on the table, and you’ll look like a kitchen hero.

Tandoori Fish: This Indian-inspired go-to fish recipe is one of my favorite dishes to pop in the oven on busy weeknights. Why? Because these tender and aromatic fillets are insanely easy to throw together—and they pack a big punch of flavor, too.

Poached Cod in Tomato Sauce: This tasty pizza-flavored fish dish is so simple, it’s almost cheating to call it at “recipe” at all!

Salmon Fillet Recipes

Sheet Pan Salmon Supper: This Sheet Pan Salmon Supper is one of my favorite Whole30 weeknight family meals! It’s crazy simple to make, and clean up is a breeze!

Macadamia-Crusted Sriracha Ranch Salmon: I love this recipe from our Ready or Not! cookbook because it’s salmon topped with my favorite spicy, creamy, and crunchy ingredients!

My favorite online source for sustainable seafood!

Wondering where to source the best wild and sustainable seafood online? If I can’t head to my local fish monger, I love getting frozen seafood deliveries from Vital Choice. It’s not cheap, but you get what you pay for.

About Michelle Tam

Hello! My name is Michelle Tam, and I love to eat. I think about food all the time. It borders on obsession. I’ve always loved the sights and smells of the kitchen. My mother was (and is) an excellent cook, and as a kid, I was her little shadow as she prepared supper each night. From her, I gained a deep, abiding love for magically transforming pantry items into mouth-watering family meals.
