Fish is an essential part of the Mediterranean diet, but it doesn't have to be a plain piece of broiled salmon.

"It's hitting all the flavors people like," says Goin. She focuses on eating seasonally, too. "When we have apricots in the summer, I try to find different ways to use them," she says. Here, Goin cooks them with star anise and uses the juices to season the fish.Get quick and easy recipes for dinner tonight! Start now!
