I’ll be honest, I didn’t always know the best sides for fish dinners, and as a result, I think that I may have made some poor choices in my pairings. Over the years, I’ve learned what flavors pair best to make great side dishes for fish, and I’ve even expanded my knowledge to the best veggies and salad dishes as well. In the next few sections of this article, I’m going to show you some of my favorite side dishes to accompany various seafood main courses, which include salmon, shrimp, tilapia, and lobster.
Cooking bacon is messy. It’s not a thing that people talk about all the time, sure, but if you’ve ever gone straight to the kitchen and tried to cook bacon before waking up and putting on proper cooking clothes, you probably made a mess. Getting splattered with bits of bacon grease for several minutes isn’t fun, and while things like lids, screens, and other tools can help catch the flying fat, you’re probably going to still get bits of bacon drippings on your stove or counter.
