These are old articles, but they are good ones. I’ll share the ones I’ve tried, and you are free to explore the rest.

The best thing about these posts is that not only do they give you a main dish, but they also give you a dessert and a suggested drink pairing, in true French style.

7. Sole Meunière

I suggest this one, mostly because A) I’m kinda lazy. And B) It’s simple and not overly complex as some of the other recipes. It’s light, fragrant, and goes amazingly well with anything citrus-related.

Here is the recipe.

13. Piperade

This one is also very simple, and very rich. Instead of using duck eggs, I personally substituted chicken eggs instead.

27. Ratatouille

This one is fun. And of course you gotta try it. Because of the movie of course.

44. Cod Accras (Also my personal favorite)

Deep-fried fish balls. What else can I say? (However, like the article suggested, have these in a sandwich! Especially with a crusty baguette.)
