Do you have a friend or loved one with a birthday coming up? Pisces season just began, and these recipes will go perfectly with the oceanic theme of this sign of the Zodiac. If astrology is not your thing, you’ll still love these dinner ideas - they’re completely irresistible. There’s something really special about cooking a memorable meal for someone you care about, and it’s really easy to do with quality meat and seafood. I happen to be a Pisces and can personally vouch for all of these meals! Known for being dreamy, creative and compassionate, this Zodiac sign is symbolized by two fish.
1. Miso Glazed Sablefish (Black Cod)
We get this amazing fish in limited quantities and due to this, we don’t always list it on the website. Feel free to give us a call or send us an email if you’d like to purchase some sablefish - it always sells out like hotcakes! This is my all time favorite type of fish and if you ask me, there’s only one way to prepare it. You need to marinate it for 24 hours for the best results so make sure to plan a day in advance. The marinade is simple: white miso paste, sake, mirin and coconut sugar (brown sugar is fine too). Give it a quick sear, then bake in the oven for 12 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. I like to serve miso sablefish over forbidden black rice with some broccoli or bok choy on the side. This is one of those recipes that’s really easy to make at home but delivers stunning, restaurant quality results every time. Sablefish is extremely similar to Chilean sea bass in flavor and texture, but far more sustainable. Your favorite Piscean will love this dreamy, exotic tasting meal!
2. Sweet & Citrusy Balsamic Maple Salmon
My next choice for the perfect Pisces season birthday dinner is a king salmon fillet with a delicious orange, ginger maple & balsamic glaze. The zesty, sweet flavor is completely addictive and makes for a delightful experience. Our king salmon is the flakiest, most luscious salmon in existence and comes straight from the pristine waters off the coast of Alaska. This recipe, like the sablefish, is extremely easy to prepare. Simply marinate the salmon for fifteen minutes, give it a quick broil (8 minutes is all it takes) and dinner is on the table. I like it with some couscous and sautéed vegetables. If you’d prefer a simpler preparation, our salmon doesn’t need much adornment - just drizzle on some olive oil and top with slices of lemon and/or fresh herbs.
Surf & Turf: For People Who Like Options
If you’re close with a Pisces, you probably know how indecisive they can be. Satisfy their desire for creatures of the sea without giving up a nice juicy steak by preparing surf and turf. The possibilities are endless… a bison tomahawk, filet mignon, or boneless ribeye would be my top choices. Our bison tomahawk steaks are some of the most impressive cuts of meat I’ve ever seen. Absolutely perfect for a celebration. If you’re going this route, you might want to consider pairing your steaks with one of our ivory king salmon fillets. This rare variety of king salmon has ivory colored flesh and a rich fat content. Prized by fishermen in Alaska, these are considered the most premium pieces of salmon. Or, you could mix it up with the meat portion by choosing some tender elk medallions, lamb chops or wild boar tenderloin. Let your creativity shine through in honor of all things Pisces!
