Non fishy tasting fish?

I don't like fish but am trying to incorporate more into my diet since I need to lose ten pounds. I find even halibut and wild salmon a little fishy...Is there anything that isn't?

  • Halibut shouldn't taste fishy. If it does, it's not good.
    That's the only kind of fish I can eat. I hats fish too.

  • Where do you live at OP? Do you have access to FRESH fish. By fresh I mean 2 hrs old at the least. The fresher the fish, the more mild taste you can get.

  • Tuna. Mix it with mayo, plenty of onions, celery, and pickles. You might be okay.

  • But I do agree with iwicked, I hate fishy flavor and I absolutely love Tilapia. White fish also has a very mild flavor also. If you can do it, the spicier you make the fish, the less fish taste you will get.

     Red Snapper has a great firm texture with a sweet taste, and does not have a fishy taste either. Red snapper is the most common caught fish out there. I ate it all the time while I was in FL. I actually went deep sea fishing and caught it. Doesn't get much fresher then that!

    I like this..

  • The fresher the better. I was also told at one time to soak fish in buttermilk for 24 hours and then cook it how you like (broil, grill, pan fry.... etc). I have done this several times with various fish and every time if it wasn't for the texture I would have sworn I was eating chicken. You can make buttermilk too by mixing 1 cup regular milk with 1 tbsp or lemon juice or white vinegar. I have done this a couple times for this and other recipes too and it came out fine.

  • talapia, it's the only fish i'll eat b/c i don't like seafood

  • Wow, look at you guys! Thank you so much for the thoughts and recipes! Yes, I live on the Puget Sound (can see it from my window) so I have Pike Market and Fisherman's Terminal at my doorstep...Which makes me wonder if it's just me who has a real sensitivity to fish...
    I agree about tilapia but the Costco stuff comes from China (after MUCH research) and is I'm not into farmed fish from China. Love the recipes and buttermilk idea. Thanks so much ladies! You rock!
