Fish recipes are some of the easiest to cook! Fish cooks fast and easily when placed into any kind of heat so when you're looking for something that's simple yet delicious, fish recipes can be your go-to dish.

However, some fish are not impressive to serve for parties and other big gatherings but we think that's not true! The trick with fish is that it needs to be flavorful and appetizing to the eye even if it's made and cooked simply.

To impress your guests with fish dishes that are both easy to make and fancy enough to serve to other people, here are 7 fish recipe ideas we think should be on your list of party favorite dishes:

4 Pan-Fried Fish Fillets In Citrus Sauce Recipe 

Simply fried fish fillets can be made better! All you need is some ingenuity when it comes to making the sauce that goes with it. In this case, some lemons and oranges make this sauce tangy and citrusy while the olives offer the saltiness that perfectly marries the entire dish together. The amount of crispy garlic bits doesn't hurt its flavor either.
