Good Friday is for good fish, and for your Easter feast we have you covered from snacks through to sides of cured salmon and traditional Good Friday white fish recipes to boot.

To start, there's smoked trout pâté, perhaps, or Jacqui Challinor's delicious kingfish ceviche with avocado and finger lime. For an Easter showstopper, you could do worse than the impressive of beetroot-cured ocean trout. For some truly autumnal flavours, turn to cooking snapper fillet with mandarin and fennel sauce. Plus, our fancy riff on fish 'n' chips with baked barramundi and crispy potatoes is always a winner with a generous squeeze of lemon juice.

Looking for easy fish recipes? Check out Toby Wilson's fish taco recipe in the video above for a festive Good Friday evening.

Time to go fishin' - here are our best fish recipes to make (and eat) this Good Friday.
