    Hey!! So I have a predicament. I love seafood... however, my fiance does not share my love of fish. In fact, he hates it. I have tried everything!! Soaking it in milk overnight, dousing it in lemon juice, buying the freshest of the fresh, etc etc and he still complains it tastes "too fishy". Do you have any suggestions on what Type of fish might taste "less fishy" or any recipes that help cut down on the fishy taste? Does it help to cook it on the grill instead of inside? Any suggestions are welcome. icon_biggrin.gif

    I find that Halibut is a great nuetral fish, Mean Chef's Halibut With Garlic Mayonnaise-Parmesan Topping is a good one to try. Good Luck!

    Thanks Dawnab, that looks yummy!!

    And Vicki -- Yes!! We both love spicy food icon_smile.gif

    I made him try my MahiMahi at a restaurant last night and he actually said it was okay!!

    Now if I can only find a place that sells it fresh around here icon_sad.gif We are awfully far from the Gulf so I usually drive to Houston to get it fresh. Tilapia is popular down here also... any suggestions on how to prepare that?

    So yeah, I am still open for fish and recipe suggestions!! Thanks ya'll icon_biggrin.gif

    If he doesn't like "fishy" tasting fish, you'll be staying away (for now, at least!) from Bass, and possibly the oilier fish, like salmon...

    (And avoid anything smoked or raw!)

    I enjoy fried fish fillets (boneless and skinless); I'm thinking haddock, cod, pickerel/walleye (you could try this with Tilapia!) done to "A Quick and Different Fried Fish Recipe"...sort of a unique taste, not "fishy" at all, given the fillets are fairly thin, and "well done"...

    You can actually do it with salmon, rainbow trout and the like, but start with "baby steps"...and move the taste/tolerance point up from what "works"...always "reinforcing success", rather than "repeating failure"...

    I forgot to remind you to use the "Very Best" S+V chips you can find! Don't get cheap!

    If you're within a drive of Houston and there's no fresh fish in your community, you might to get up a buying club. Get 3-4 people you trust, and take turns driving over to the fish market with everyone's cooler of ice.

    If the object is to cover up the taste of the fish (which I'm unsure of - why not just give him a pork chop, and more fish for people who appreciate it, but anyways), "veracruzano" is another flavor you might try. It's the same combo as spanish rice (which would go great with his porkchop, but anyways). Huachinango a la Veracruzano orRed Snapper in Tomato Sauce is in zaar, the recipe I know is more like this one from Fonda San Miguel. Don't serve it to him with the eyes on! You can use whatever kind of fish, just adjust the cooking time.

    Have fun!

    John -- I don't skimp on s&v chips hehe. icon_smile.gif

    Thanks for the ideas realbirdlady --
    I am trying to include more fish in his diet for health benefits, as suggested by the doctor... problem is I love it and don't mind, he hates it.

    DH and I are "fish haters" and this forum really helped us. I now include fish in our diet 3-4 times per week. We got a lot of really great ideas - check out this thread:

    I just had some frozen swordfish filets (the Coleson's Catch brand) and my 3 year old swore it was chicken. Sure, it was slightly overcooked... but it was THAT surprisingly not-fish-like. These frozen Coleson's Catch fishes are really surprisingly not so bad. I recommend trying it. I wouldn't give him salmon or other strong-tasting fishes though.
