it doesn't help that outside of big cities, the white fish I see the vast majority of time in stores is the muddy tasting tilapia (it must be soaked in buttermilk for a bit to get rid of that off taste). Perhaps people assume that because it's everywhere, it's a popular fish. And becasue it's popular, it must be good, but tilapia (IMO) really isn't a great tasting fish.


I seriously despise Tilapia.

it's not just tilapia, though that is a common fish. catfish, "striped bass" (not the saltwater one, the farmed hybrid) ... basically any farmed fish can have that moldy, pool-bottom taste if the farmers aren't really careful about maintenance.

I don't even like the name. I'd never even heard of it before reading about it here on SF...
