Chicken or fish topping suggestions
I do thin cut chicken breast and fish often on a flat grill. It's quick, easy, healthy, and tasty. For the times that I invite guests over or want to indulge, I'd like to put a topping over the meat.

Anybody have suggestions? In restaurants, I've had crabmeat and butter (type) toppings before. What cha got?

This. And some salt and pepper. Pretty easy to make fish delicious.

Chicken? Butter, garlic, salt and pepper works really well. Crisp the skin.

You could do a chicken piccata type sauce and serve it over pasta. I love a piccata sauce.

Pesto sauce on chicken would work. You could also add some grilled tomato slices, fresh mozzarella and fresh basil slivers.

I love a buerre blanc sauce over grilled fish. I like to add some capers to it.

Hollandaise sauce.
Bernaise sauce.

On chicken, I like creamed spinach.. but make it more like a spinach dip where cheese is involved. Not just milk.

They serve it often in Mexican places and I love it.

Beurre blanc is a great foil for adding flavor and indulgence to fish and chicken.

It is great by itself or you can incorporate additional ingredients (like crab meat) to make it luxurious.

I make Chef John's Norwegian Butter Sauce for both fish and chicken. It's easy and good and I've been making it for a couple years a lot. Change herbs - dill, tarragon, cilantro work well.

He has several other sauces you can find too.

Look up Alabama White Sauce. It's mayo based, so I'm ready to take my punishment. It's also tasty.

Really good sauce. Dill and parsley would be good over that salmon, though I do love tarragon on so many things.

Try a meuniere sauce over your fish. Pan fry the fish on both sides and use the remaining oil (shouln't be over 1/2 inch on the side of the pan) and add butter, Worcestershire sauce, Crystal hot sauce, lemon, and minced garlic and let that simmer for a few minutes and glaze the fish with it.

For fish I sometimes do something simple. I saute some shallots and red pepper in some butter with whatever salt or seasonings you like, then fold in some lump crabmeat and put it on top of fish. Very easy to do and tastes good. As a side sometimes I boil small potatoes (halved or quartered) and pour the crab mixture over that as well.

Bruschetta chicken with diced tomatoes, garlic, basil, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar. Can top with a little mozzarella or mix shredded in with the bruschetta topping.

Pesto or chimichurri is also good as well

Pineapple ( don't use canned ) or mango salsa. Fish depends on the texture and oil content. Lemon burre blanc is hard to beat on the white flaky fish i.e. seabass, halibut etc. Dill is traditional with salmon but maybe nice to taste the fish and not other stuff. If its super fresh just try the fish. Fresh fish is hard to get and twice as hard to pay for if you don't live by the ocean.
