I have never ate fish before and am a little hesitant bc of the smell. What is a good "introductory" way into fish?

  • Start off with Halibut.
    No fishy taste and it's the best.

  • Talapia is good, not fishy at all.

  • I guess what my next question would be is what are good ways to cook it? Recipes?

  • Halibut is great baked or BBQ'd.

    When I make it I wrap it in foil with slices of lemon and dash of olive oil. Generally 30 mins for a med. Size fish.
    You don't want to undercooked it.

    Another good way, but not as healthy is to, finely chop Macadamia Nuts, mix with parmesan cheese. Roll your Halibut in the coating and bake approx. 30 mins at 350. Fish should be flaky. Tasty. :)

    You can also make homemade Tartar sauce by mixing mayonnaise, dill pickle relish and squeeze of lemon juice.

  • Start out with good old fish sticks. Then work your way up to other fish. How old are you?

  • Start off like most of us midwesterners do... fish sticks. Deep fried with a shit ton of tartar sauce. Then in about 5 years, move on to tuna casserole & 10 more years you can move onto big game like chicken.

  • I like tilapia also. I generally make it the same way I bake chicken- by rolling in eggs & breadcrumbs mixed with seasonings then baking til done.
