    I'd love to get some ideas from those of you who love fish...because I don't. Or rather, I don't eat it very often so, I'm not very familiar with it, therefore, don't know where to start. I can not take this fat gut of mine one more minute, so instead of my usual bad habits, it's time to introduce myself to some better-for-you dishes. I'm just looking to make some substitutions, incorporating fish into my diet on a regular any favorite recipes you have that you'd be willing to share, I'd be thankful...

    Love fish, pretty much any kind. But for a non fish lover I would tend to go with baked or a pan seared or with salsas that have lots of flavor until you get more accustomed to eating fish. If you get old fish or poorly prepared - that can really ruin your taste. So getting fresh fish is important. But now-a-days there are quite a few selections that are frozen that are not too bad at all.

    Cod, Halibut are both very nice mild fish
    Tilapia, is farm raised, but a nice firm inexpensive fish which you can do a lot with
    Flounder is also very mild which is nice
    Salmon, one of my favorite can be a bit stronger in flavor, but there are many wonderful sauces, glazes and techniques to cook it.
    Mahi Mahi is another nice white fish, grouper and pompano, all very mild.

    Just a few recipes. Remember that most of these recipes can be interchanged and can be used on most fish.

    Using fish in other methods would also work for you because it wouldn't be just all fish.
    Try tacos, fish cakes, in a stew or chowders, or salmon with pasta, even quesadillas. And rather than eating it just plain, try putting it in a sandwich or a pita or a wrap.

    Also, rather than just baking, grilling can offer some great flavors and different marinades can create some nice flavors too.

    Laura, if that's your photo on your icon, you're not fat! icon_biggrin.gif

    We're fish lovers, and we live on the sea. Sometimes fresh fish is scarce, as it depends on weather conditions.

    But nothing is nicer than the fish shop telling me, "This is fresh off the boats!"

    I'm not posting any recipes. I don't know where you live as really fresh fish can be scarce if you live inland.

    Just a secret for free: fresh, fresh fish is best simply pan-fried for a few minutes on each side (if filleted) or slightly longer if on the bone.

    I roll my fish pieces in a mixture of flour and cornmeal, then fry in olive oil and butter over high heat in a pan, until sort of "underdone". Then I take them out and season with a nice seasoning salt, and leave it in a warming oven for a while. Underdone fish cooks through in that waiting period, but will be still juicy when eaten.

    Laura, what are non-fish dishes you enjoy - we can probably suggest some similar dishes based on fish that might make it easier for you to incorporate fish into your diet.

    These are some dishes I think are good introductions to fish

    Mediterranean Flounder
    Fish and Sour Cream Bake
    Fish Meuniere With Capers
    Creamy Fish and Mushroom Pie
    Festive Fish Fillets

    I would agree that halibut is a good one. Also orange roughy if you can get it. I like salmon as well. grilling or baking in a foil pouch with a combination of flavors you know you like will help. Choosing flavors / sauces that you already know you are inclined towards will help you incorporate them into your diet more easily I think.

    I love things like dill, garlic, onions, green jalepeno powder, curry, salsas (both hot tomato based or sweeter like mango, starberry, watermelon, etc).

    There are a variety of cooking methods and styles/dishes to recommend. I'll chime in and agree that all the fish fan talent on this site can easily direct you to fantastic dishes if they know your tastes. icon_smile.gif

    This is a great post. . .reading all of the comments, I realized that while I love shellfish, I really only like non-fishy tasting fish! So perhaps I can help you out!

    Buy cod when it's on sale and soak it in milk for an hour to take the last little bit of fishiness out.

    If you like shrimp, that's a GREAT mild flavor with minimal calories.

    LOVE a good tuna cooked medium rare to rare. I can get it at a good price on sale and it's so quick to cook.

    Chilean Sea bass is amazing and not fishy at all, but VERY expensive so this is a date night fish - when it's on sale.

    Another tip that I learned from a friend of ours who has run a high end restaurant for 30 years is to thaw the fish/shrimp in a strainer in the sink with some ice over top so that as the ice thaws it rinses the fish while keeping it cold and allowing all of the fish juices to escape.

    Here are some of our favorite recipes here on

    Salmon for Everyone!
    Lemon Oregano Shrimp over Peppered Couscous

    Hello everybody,
    I'm fish lover and often like to eat fish.Mostly i like Beer Battered Fish because this is a easy and quick recipe.It's basically made with a good beer, flour and a little oil. The keys to make it is cold batter, hot oil and need good quality fish. You can even use it for shrimp, calamari or oysters. Serve this with chips, and a dipping sauce. I like simple mustard. This recipe makes enough batter for 2 pounds of fish or seafood....

    Cooking in a parchment or foil pouch is a favorite of mine. A little white or broth, butter, lemon, fresh veggies, and herbs. Just wrap and cook. You can really use any vegetables, even tomatoes and spinach.

    Baked or grilled salmon with a lemon dill cream sauce. Simple cream, simmer with shallots, dill, and lemon.

    Tilapia or any white fish on a sheet of foil, grill or oven. With capers, lemon, broth, shallots, and broccoli. I seasoned with lemon pepper.

    Simple grilled salmon with lemon pepper and a no salt seasoning. Finished with a roasted lemon squeezed over the top. Good for ANY FISH

    Any fish, this was tilapia with a fresh cucumber, shallot, fresh basil, and tomato salsa. Added a little basil oregano seasoned rice wine vinegar (Nakano brand). That's it. The fish, seasoned with salt and pepper.

    Again, any fish for this. I used sapper; but topped with a easy shrimp sauce. The baby cocktail shrimp sauteed with onion, white wine, a splash of cream. Fresh parsley.

    Cajun Salmon. But again. I have used this on many different fish. Use your cajun seasoning. Brush with fish with oil, season, grill or bake; and squeeze with fresh lime.

    I have hundreds more; but these are all easy, and work well with many different kinds of fish. Swordfish is delicious; grouper, flounder, snapper, etc.
