Seafood is a tricky one. You either love it or can’t bear the sight of it. However, the best people are from the former group. The oceans occupy most of this world, making aquatic life one of the widest food sources. 

With so many flavors, textures, and types of seafood, you could be spoiled for choice. But, once you really start to explore the deep seas, no other meat tastes quite as good.

Trying out a beautiful fish recipe is the perfect way to be productive this week, and you’ll get a delicious meal out of it. 

To help you, we’ve compiled a list of classic fish recipes that are super easy to make and delicious, including some fantastic Fulton Fish Market Cod recipes. Just buy your favorite type of fish on Friday so you can explore new culinary horizons on Saturday night by cooking one of these beautiful fish recipes!
