Fish Taste Chart

I had a reader ask for a list of mild tasting fish and their texture. So I thought I would make up a fish tasting chart for other readers to use as a reference.

Texture Guide

A delicate textured fish will be a smaller flaked meat, the medium texture fish is firm, but tender and the firm textured fish is much like a tender beef steak.
