I've been buying frozen fish from Costco in bulk to lower my cholesterol/triglycerides and need a better recipe than spread butter on fillet, add lemon pepper and cook until opaque.
What other sauces or spice could I add to make it more tasty? Soy sauce? Oyster sauce? Cooking wine?

i like to cook every once in a while, but i've never thought about cooking fish at home. you've got me interested. i'm keeping an eye on this thread.
first thing that comes to mind: there must be a way to make a healthier version of fried fish by using some type of very light batter and broiling it in the oven instead of deep frying it. i'll look into it and let you know what i find out.

I've been wanting to do fish in a pouch, and a salt encrusted fish.
But just haven't yet.
usually I just fry it.
my inspiration for the salt encrusted one are the old Japanese iron chef episodes. they almost always did it when they had a fish.
as for the pouch:
