- Steamed or poached: Lean, mild-flavored fish with tender, white or pale flesh, such as sea bass, cod, flounder or grouper, are usually delicate, so this cooking method works well. Shrimp, crab and lobster can be cooked in this method.
- Grilled or broiled: Medium-fatty fish, such as bluefish, catfish, mullet or swordfish, cuts are perfect for these methods, because they can withstand the heat. Shrimp, crab and lobster can be cooked in this method too.!
- Broiling, baking or poaching: For fattier fish, with a firmer texture, richer flavor and deeper color, such as black cod (sablefish), mackerel, salmon or trout, try one of these methods.
