A lot of people are intimidated by cooking fish, but it actually makes a super easy and delicious weeknight meal. Fish is a great source of lean protein, full of essential vitamins and nutrients, and is one of the quickest-cooking choices for a simple and healthy meal. I make salmon, trout, or mahi mahi pretty often because they are relatively inexpensive and are readily available at our local seafood market. Feel free to use whatever is fresh and local in your area and don't be afraid to try substitutions in these recipes. There are a lot of high-quality frozen fish available at the supermarket nowadays, too.

We try and eat some type of fish at least once a week and it's easy to fall into the same routine of pan-searing or baking it and serving it alongside a veggie or grain. But it's just as easy to add a quick marinade or sauce to make the dish more exciting. Here are some of my favorite simple fish recipes to turn to on busy weeknights. These dishes are quick to prepare but are exciting enough to serve for company.
