    Fresh white ocean or freshwater fish really doesn't have a fishy taste or smell ... but never you worry, my own son had to reach the ripe old age of 33, I think, before he started ordering fish in restaurants (I mean, actually EATING it and liking it!) As a child and teen, I could FORGET about trying to get him to eat fish of any kind.

    I have a recipe posted which is actually more about the Thai-style sauce. It's very nice with fish, which does not have to be steamed like in the recipe, just fried simply in a pan. It's VERY low-calorie.

    tilapia and mahi mahi are the best fishless fish tasting kinds - they become what ever you cook them with - ie - sauces or seasonings.

    Oh Clare, blackened is such a natural but your chowders are making me drool!

    When are you going to try grilling fresh tuna or swordfish or Mahi-Mahi, at super high heat for about 45 seconds a side? Will be hard to differentiate from Filet Mignon!

    "Grilling" is much the same as "broiling" in the oven, given you pre-heat the oven....

    Or, using tuna or Mahi-Mahi steaks, a cast iron pan will get it done...

    I am in the same boat with my wife. I could eat fish daily but she hates it. Last summer I found something she likes though. Fresh caught shark steak marinated in moores. Stripe in moores is a close second. After trying the shark steak on the grill, she wants to shark fish every weekend. She says it taste like beef steak but with different texture.

    I'm curious, have you tried Swordfish? The flavor and aroma are very subtle and the texture can be likened to a pork chop. Grilling is usually the way to go with Swordfish.

    I really Really hate the taste of fish.. It's like sucking on double A batteries.

    So I am curious about Mahi. I can handle Halibit (breaded Filets - live in the desert so we don't get fresh Halibit here), Tuna (Albacore - Canned).

    Will not touch Talipia (because I know they sell the fish used in waste reclamation (I know its 3rd or 4th stage, but comeon.. It's just nasty).

    I tried some frozen Halibut from TJ's, (Major Yuppie Food Retailer) but it still had the faint tatse of Fish. A pint of Gin and some horseraddish would cover it, but can anyone tell me if Mahi actually doesn't have that nasty fish taste?

    I've also heard that soaking the fish in whole milk like a marinade will remove that flavor..

    Any Thoughts?

    Ocean fish that is fresh will just have a briny taste and scent. Smell it before buying, it will smell old and "fishy"if it isn't fresh. If shrimp smells like ammonia it is decomposing. Get seafood fresh and don't overcook it. If you can't get fresh seafood, go for something like trout or another freshwater fish that is native to, or farmed in, your area.
    I must say, I just don't understand why someone who hates fish would want to "disguise" its taste and eat it. It's like forcing a vegetarian to eat meat disquised as a vegetable. icon_confused.gif If it's for omega-3s, you can get that in capsule form. I can understand trying to acquire a taste for it, to re-train the palate, but if you hate it so much, why do it? I detest liver and would never disguise it just so I could learn to like it.

    Just cause you don't like the taste doesn't mean it's not good for you:-)

    I may hate the tatse, but I'm trying to incorporate it into a balanced diet (fewer fishy tasting pills required), and well variety is always better than processed canned Albacor

    To me it just seems like pouring hot fudge sauce on liver, I still would not eat it. But I do wish you success and a re-trained palate! icon_smile.gif
    The only kind of fish/seafood I've ever had that was distasteful to me was shark, and that was because it had the texture of a sponge.
