Good way to get DH to eat fish?

DH is the picky one in the family, but the Dr says he needs to eat more fish (he is a meat and potatos kinda guy). So... looking for something kinda mild, or a good way to mask the flavor. We live on the coast, so most of the common stuff is pretty easy to come by.

  • Here's another that's good:

    Caesar's Fish

    1 lb flounder filets (or other mild fish)
    1/2 cup Caesar Salad Dressing
    1 cup cracker crumbs (Ritz or Cheetos)
    1/2 cup (2 oz.) shredded cheddar cheese
    Preheat oven to 400. Arrange filets in a single layer in lightly greased 13x9" baking dish. Drizzle Caesar salad dressing over the filets. Sprinkle cracker crumbs over top. Bake about 5-8 minutes. Top with cheese. Bake just till cheese is melted. Test fish doneness with a fork. It should be flaky easily and be opaque.

    Notes: I use whatever crackers I have on hand. Place in a zip-lock bag and crush with a rolling pin, side of a meat mallet or a can.

  • He wouldn't take 'em. Picky picky guy! Besides, if he eats healthy stuff, we figure he is setting a good example for the kiddo.

  • im the same way i dont care for a heavy fish. so some of the mild fish that i like are halibut, whitefish, cod. salmon is one that is just a heavier taste and no matter how it is cooked i just dont like it so pretty sure i would stay away from that. halibut if you bake it with a bit of dill weed salt, pepper, lemon slices and some unsalted butter, it is to die for. its very nice and light and flakey. whitefish is great breaded and fried (what i usually order when we go to fish fry) or baked and cod is great breaded and fried. also being as he doesnt care for fish try to keep plenty of tarter sauce around. oh and smoked lake trout is sooo good.

  • Better rounded diet (little on the chunky side) and he is sick of chicken. He doesn't HATE seafood persay, just hasn't really been exposed to much and is scared to eat it.
