Fish for people who don't eat fish - Page 3

Grow up and acquire an adult's taste in food?

I had been under the impression that cod was less a fish than an acronym for Catch Of the Day, but have had no luck convincing the supermarket fish counter of this. However, to answer the question I recommend the Freshwater Drum; the fish is difficult to find but has a flavor like diluted salmon and a texture closer to that of other white fish.

My vote is for Pangasius. Very unfishy fish and easy to prepare.

Dolphin or Whale.

I know the post is not entirely serious...but whale is a mammal...and as such a lot closer to beef than fish I could see it being a way to draw yourself into fish though...it isn't really "fishy" but smoked whale reminded me an awful lot of smoked salmon with a beef texture

I'm caught in the same situation. I enjoyed eating fish as a kid growing up on the seashore in Australia, but once I moved to the Midwest of the US and had to eat fried fish burgers for school lunch, I stopped enjoying it. The trouble is that I can't remember what good fish tasted like since it's been awhile (and I probably like the chips more)... The smell of cooked seafood now though, could make me puke. If I inadvertently eat some, I really do. I'll eat sushi. I don't want no ikura, no uni, nothing alien looking, but I'll maguro, chutoro and otoro until i'm full. I just can't eat any cooked or fermented fish, and that is a problem where I live. Everything has fermented shrimp or squid in it, or is a seafood broth made from pretty strong smelling seafood. I probably have access to decently fresh seafood and am willing to give it a try, even if I throw up the first 20 times. I would like to know what it is that could make me come to love seafood, though....

Did I mention adding milk to the pan as a very effective solution? Yes? I thought so

I'm not a fan of the "fishy" tasting fish..
but the fish I do eat: Haddock, Cod, Chilean Sea Bass and Mahi Mahi. Had the Mahi Mahi for the first time in Barbados at the Oistens fish fry.. caught a few hours before and grilled to perfection... tastes awesome!)

I'd be eating really bland white, flaky fish... like flounder or cod.

+1. tarakihi too.

blue cod is nice.

Yep. Eat more beef.

update: ate one grilled shrimp last night. Didn't taste too bad to be honest. Might have even enjoyed it, had it been dusted in some coriander powder before grilling and then some lemon juice afterwards. Then, a couple hours later, I started itching all over and turned splotchy and red. I will try it one more time in a controlled environment and confirm if seafood is fucking me up.
