Herring Salad in a red bowl with garnish

When easy fish recipes, aka Fisch, are on your mind, try these German traditional ones. Even though Germany has a limited shore-line, there are abundant lakes, rivers, and ponds that supply a vast variety of fish. Especially in northern Germany, fish is often on the menu. 

In a real hurry? The herring salad above is for you. The kids just love the sweet and creamy taste. Some other choices are oven-baked, fried, breaded, and grilled fish, as given below.


Which fish to choose ...

Cod is a good all-purpose fish as well as one of the least expensive. Haddock, though slightly milder in flavor than cod, can be a little more expensive. Sole is a very delicately flavored fish.

Salmon, rich in healthy fats, is usually steamed, baked, or broiled. Here is another one of my favourites. It's an oven baked salmon fillet that's covered with dijon mustard and breadcrumbs. Olive oil (or melted butter) is sprinkled on top. Into the oven. Dinner's ready in about 15 minutes. Delicious!

Trout is also a great treat!

Smoked fish is widely available, such as smoked herring, smoked salmon, and of course, smoked eel! These especially are German treats!

Krabben?

Another treat? "Krabben"! When I was first introduced to these in Husum in northern Germany, I thought they were maggots. That's exactly what they looked like. Much to the delight of my German friends, they tease me about it every time we go there.

I really wish someone would have told me that "Krabben" were little shrimp! I would have loved to have tried them right there, the first time, because I really do like shrimp. Instead, I wondered how anyone could eat such disgusting-looking bugs.

Oma says,

Each of these fish recipes are delicious, as well as quickly prepared.

Even if you don't know how to cook fish, you'll find the instructions easy, even for a beginning cook.

Quick and healthy, what more could you want?

Fish is rich in protein and is an excellent source of minerals. It is usually quite lean and requires a short cooking period.

In most recipes, the different varieties of fish can be used interchangeably.
