Please the whole fam with our freshest fish and seafood dishes. No matter whether you want to skip meat one night a week or every night of the week, these recipes are sure to satisfy.

Rachael Ray says it best: "Nothing beats fresh clam sauce, unless you're hungry and have only your pantry to work with." This restaurant-quality dish comes together in only 20 minutes and is made with practically all pantry ingredients. (That fresh parsley served over the top at the end is a flavor must and, you know, not stored in the cupboard!)

Save this recipe for Taco Tuesday — that is, if you can wait that long. Marcela Valladolid's simple fish batter includes a cup of dark Mexican beer, which adds bubbles and makes the batter nice and light.

Just a few tablespoons of butter go a long way in this recipe, flavoring both the grits and the sauteed shrimp. And although the cayenne is optional, we think it's a great way to kick up the garlicky sauce.

Here's a recipe that'll please kids and grown-ups alike. You really can make homemade salmon fish sticks in just about the same time it takes to bake those frozen favorites. And when you mix grated Parmesan with seasoned breadcrumbs, the result is crispy and way more delicious than anything you'll find in the freezer section.

Veggie-filled fried rice is great, but it's even better when you add protein-packed shrimp to the mix. Using your sheet pan guarantees you'll have more of those crunchy bits you love in traditional fried rice.

Mustard powder and just a few pinches of cayenne turn plain breadcrumbs into the perfect breading for fresh cod. Follow Rachael's lead and use disposable pie tins to cut down on dishes and make the breading process super easy.
