Sorghum and Albacore Tuna Salad with Preserved Lemon

Sorghum, a nutritious and sustainable grain, adds a pleasantly chewy bite to this simple salad from Roxana Jullapat, the co-owner and baker of Los Angeles restaurant Friends & Family. If you’re going to use sorghum grains as a salad base, she advises, presoak the sorghum at least 8 hours for the best texture, wash the grains before cooking to remove extra starch, and cook them with abundant water, like pasta. Once cooked, spread them on a sheet pan and drizzle with olive oil so the grains don’t stick together as much. Preserved lemon is a popular North African condiment made by pickling the fruit in salt and its own juice. The bracing lemony flavor adds a salty kick to this olive-, onion-, and fresh herb–laden tuna salad.

Whole Fish Drizzled with Hot Ginger-Scallion Oil

The Chinese word for fish (yu) sounds similar to the Chinese word most closely translated to “abundance,” so for her Lunar New Year celebration, Lucky Chow producer Danielle Chang serves fish to usher in prosperity and abundance in the new year. Chang uses light soy sauce in this dish—it is lighter in color and higher in salt than dark soy sauce, making it ideal for imparting flavor in steamed seafood.

Brown Sugar–Glazed Salmon with Buttery Roasted Squash

Chef Erick Williams recommends thick cuts of salmon for this recipe; they cook quickly while remaining juicy and tender and are well balanced by the sweet, gingery glaze. If delicata or acorn squash aren’t available, substitute 6 cups peeled and diced butternut squash.

Sea Bass Crudo with Mango and Cilantro

This platter of seasoned raw fish, from chef Yoshi Okai of Austin’s renowned sushi omakase restaurant, Otoko, pairs firm, sushi-grade sea bass with vibrant flavorings. In addition to a tangy soy sauce, Okai adds fresh mango and tomato, along with minced garlic and cilantro. A final finish of olive oil and flaky sea salt bring all the flavors together. If you can’t find sushi-grade sea bass, feel free to substitute another variety of white firm-fleshed sushi-grade fish—just ask your fishmonger what would work best.

Coulibiac of Salmon with Pickled Beets and Kale

Once the centerpiece on the tables of czars, coulibiac has a storied past. The pastry-wrapped parcel of fish and various layered fillings started its life as kulebyaka, a Russian delicacy, before being commandeered by the French and rechristened coulibiac. This modern update on the classic swaps labor-intensive brioche with store-bought phyllo, which bakes into an ethereally crisp parcel that encases lemony rice, mustard-brushed salmon, pickled beets, and garlicky kale. Each slice reveals clean, vibrant layers, packed with bold flavors. It’s a striking and delicious dish worthy of the center of any holiday table. Curly kale holds its green color beautifully even after cooking, but any hearty green, like lacinato kale or collards, will work here. Use whole-grain mustard, which adds a bit of acid and heat to the salmon, as well as a nice textural contrast from the crunchy mustard seeds. King salmon is best for this recipe; its high fat content delivers superior texture and flavor.
