What herbs go best with fish and beef?

Please refer to previous answers, Subject: Herbs for Meats and Herbs For Meats and Vegetables.

For fish my favourite herb is dill, but also try tarragon, chervil, chives, marjoram, basil or lemon thyme. Depends if there are aother flavours added as well such as tomatoes. You can put the herbs over the fish, add vegetables and wrap in parchment or foil and bake in the oven, or add hebs to a white wine sauce for a warm sauce or to mayonnaise for a cold sauce.

For a list of herbs and the foods (such as meat and fish) that they go well with, please refer to the Herb Directory on my web site www.yvonnetremblay.com . My book "Thyme in the Kitchen -- Cooking with Fresh Herbs" (available from Richters) has lots of great recipes for meats, fish and other dishes... for instance you might put herbs in the rice, potatoes or vegetables to go with meat or fish and not with the meat or fish itself. Try not to have herbs in too many dishes in a meal.
