Fish and chips is one of the best ways to enjoy a nice weekend. The sweet taste of fish combined with the crunchy potato chips makes for one great dish that can be enjoyed by anyone. If you’re looking for some new ideas on what side goes well with fish, then look no further! In this article we’ll go over some of our favorite seafood side dishes for your next fish fry or other meal.
Garlic bread: crisp yet soft with a wild side
Garlic bread is a classic and versatile side dish that can be served with fish, meat, vegetables and even fruit. The key to making garlic bread that’s crisp yet soft with a wild side is to make sure you use fresh garlic instead of store-bought pastes.
The best way to serve it? When it’s hot out of the oven!
Boiled potatoes: simple and reliable, yet versatile
Potatoes are a classic side dishes for fish. They can be served hot or cold and with any type of sauce, from butter to horseradish. If you’re in the mood for something more exciting, try them with curry powder or Chile flakes! For example:
- Boiled potatoes and salmon fillets topped with lemon juice and dill (or some other herb).
- Boiled potatoes sautéed in olive oil with rosemary, garlic cloves and thyme leaves; serve warm over rice noodles
Potato salad: casual, comforting and served cold
Potato salad is a great side dish for fish. It’s easy to make, and it can be served cold or at room temperature. You can use many different types of potatoes in your potato salad: sweet potatoes, russet potatoes, Yukon Golds…the list goes on! If you’re looking for something more complicated than the usual white vinegar-based recipe (which I love), try adding some chopped fresh herbs like dill or parsley.
Potato salad is also ideal for picnics because it doesn’t have any strong flavors that might overpower other foods on your plate—and if you’re going with friends or family members who don’t like fish or cosmiccoralfarms? No problem! Just omit the fish from their portion altogether and they’ll still enjoy their meal too!
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme are all good additions to a fish dish.
- Add these herbs before cooking the fish if you want them to taste like they’re coming out of a grocery store’s refrigerated case.
- If you don’t want any herb flavor at all? Don’t add any at all!
