Whether you’re crazy about cod, or just simply looking for a nice accompaniment for your raw oysters, we’ve got the recipe you’re looking for here.

"Panko

Panko and Herb-Crusted Cod Fillets

Though you’ll often see cod fillets fried on American menus, cooking it under a broiler allows you to add layers of toppings, and the fish’s delicate flavor is brought out and brightened by the tang and aroma of citrus. This large-format recipe uses the full captain’s cut (the meaty top two-thirds of the fillet located near the head). It is relatively even in thickness, making it ideal for roasting and broiling, and can serve a crowd. Get the recipe for Panko and Herb-Crusted Cod Fillets »

"bolo

Bolo do Caco

This fluffy Madeiran flatbread is something between a pita and and English muffin. The addition of sweet potato gives the dough a bit of chew and a generous shmear of garlic and herb butter before serving elevates them to a stand-alone appetizer. Get the recipe for Bolo do Caco »
"Milho
There is a large Madeiran population in Venezuela and the exchange of people between the Portuguese island and the Latin American nation has had an influence on Madeira’s cuisine. This crispy fried dish, similar to polenta fries, is often made with Harina P.A.N., an instant, white corn masa from Venezuela. Get the recipe for Milho Frito »
"Hair

Hair of the Tiger Cocktail

Literally translating to “tiger’s milk,” leche de tigre is a critical part of Peruvian ceviche: The mix of citrus, chiles, aromatics, and fish stock flavors and gently “cooks” the raw fish. But in parts of Central and South America, it’s also often sipped as a hangover cure. After testing several versions for The Secrets of Lima’s Cutting Edge Ceviche, we turned our leftovers into a zesty, revitalizing cocktail. The gentle spice and citrus notes of reposado tequila were just right with the heat and umami of the tiger’s milk. Get the recipe for Hair of the Tiger Cocktail »
"Salmon

Salmon Ceviche with Avocado and Mango

The combination of salmon and avocado, which Peruvians call palta, is still more common as a maki roll in Lima’s sushi bars than it is in the city’s cevicherías, but it’s growing in popularity. Ravenna adds firm-ripe mango for its sweetness and acidity to harmonize with the rich, fatty avocado. Get the recipe for Salmon Ceviche with Avocado and Mango »
"Japanese-Style

Japanese-Style Tuna Ceviche with Togarashi and Radish

Depending on how the fish is cut, this dish falls between a ceviche and a tiradito, a Japanese-Peruvian (or Nikkei) invention similar to ceviche, in which the fish is thinly sliced like sashimi. Nikkei-style preparations such as this often feature Japanese ingredients like soy sauce, togarashi, and sesame oil. Get the recipe for Japanese-Style Tuna Ceviche with Togarashi and Radish »

Peruvian Street Cart Ceviche with Sweet Potato and Toasted Corn (Ceviche Carretillero)

Versions of this dish, Lima’s iconic ceviche, are served around the city at beaches, parks, and markets. Chef John Evans Ravenna of Barra Lima sprinkles his with fried quinoa—long grown in Peru—and whimsical foraged garnishes such as edible flowers and seaweeds. For ease, you can leave off the glazed sweet potato, though it provides welcome relief from the spicy ají limo chile.

"Brazilian
Bahians like to ­finish this chunky salsa with a bit of juice from the moqueca, or whatever dish it is meant to accompany. The term lambão comes from the Latin lambere, “to pass the tongue over something.” In Bahia, the traditional mala­gueta chiles are said to ward off negative energy associated with some of the orixás, or spiritual beings. Look for malaguetas and pimenta de cheiro at farmers’ markets, or substitute drained jarred malaguetas from a Brazilian grocer and fresh serranos.

"Galilee-Style

Galilee-Style Whole Fried Fish

Before frying fish, Bishara gently rubs their skin and inner cavities with salt, then rinses. This trick seasons and cleans the fish, readying them for dredging. Get the recipe for Galilee-Style Whole Fried Fish »

Forty Cloves of Garlic Sauce (Thoum)

This potent condiment has all the heat and sharp bite of pure raw alliums. A tiny amount goes a very (very) long way. Use the freshest garlic possible; the enzymes break down over time, and the sauce can discolor as it ages. Get the recipe for Forty Cloves of Garlic Sauce (Thoum) »

Galilee-Style Grilled Fish Kebabs
