    Looking for recipes for a soft and tender white meat fish.

    Also hoping to find a crunchy topping.

    Sorry for not being very specific.

    Since it's nothing specific I'll give two very different general suggestions
    I'm just a part time prep cook, these are just two I enjoy the most
    First off your classic fish amandine, fish and almonds and great beans. Blanch the green beans and quickly pan sear the fish, and then bring some butter to a boil till it turns brown and nutty. Cook the fish and green beans with almonds in the brown butter till they're done. Add a bit of parsley and lemon

    You can also make fish en papillote. Get some onions, garlic, lemon zest, chillies, and a bit of coriander, and add them to fish in individual parchment pockets and bake them at 450F

    These are just general directions, I'm not good with giving specific recipes, hope it helps though.

    Need more info like what fish species? Some need different cooking techniques.

    For fresh water white fish like walleye, northern pike, perch I simply season, flour, pan fry. Catfish I do the same or beer batter because they are bit more flavorful than the others.

    Cod I have done both the above, baked it, pan seared in live oil, pan seared in butter... it is a firmer texture and stands up well to this. Haddock the same...
