What Are Some Mild Tasting Fish?

by Tisa
(Atlanta, GA, USA)

Hello. I have never liked fish because of the smell, i assume it tastes that same way. Now i have a trainer that is trying to get me to eat fish. What are the least "fishy" tasting fish and the best way to keep them. I leave in Atlanta so not really close to the sea but i do have access to a wholesale fish store.

thanks
t. Fortin


Answer
Hi Tisa,
Your best bet to start with is to stay in the whitefish category. Fish that have a white flesh often contain less oil, which reduces the "fishy" flavor.

Here are a few suggestions Cod, Halibut, Flounder,
Grouper, Haddock, Orange Roughy, Alaskan Pollock, Dover Sole, Tilapia.

As far as keeping them I would suggest that you try to buy the best frozen fish you can. Thaw them properly by placing them in the refrigerator, usually 24 hours will do it.

Make sure to rinse under cold water and pat dry before cooking.

Once thawed cook them up, don't let them set another day in the refrigerator.

Fresh squeezed lemons also help reduce the fishy taste.

Hope I helped you, let me know.
