How do you make fish taste good?

Are you a fish lover?  If yes, can you provide some suggestions for ways to make fish taste good…or even great?

We never ate much fish when I was growing up so I don’t have a natural affinity for eating it or preparing it.  I make tuna salad and grilled salmon, but that’s about the extent of my skills.  If you know and love fish, help us out here.

What kinds of fish do you buy?

Any special secrets for selecting it?

How do you cook it?

What do you serve it with?

How often do you eat it?

Thanks for sharing your experience with us.  Make your comments at the comment link below.

    Hey Cheryl,

    I recently discovered a wonderful way to cook salmon fillets – it’s quick, easy, healthy and delicious! You poach them in tea! Here is the recipe I found (I haven’t tried the fruit salsa, yet, just the fish).

    Best wishes,

  2. Hi Linda – just back from the prairie – thanks for this comment. Does the fish taste like tea? What kind of tea? If it’s black tea does it keep you awake? Do tell!

  3. Ohhh i love orange roughy and tilapia. When i’m steaming my veggies i put the fish fillet in on top with lemon-pepper seasoning or some kind of garlic seasoning. Yummm

    I tend to saute, steam, or broil fish for dinner at my house (unless it’s clams or similar!). The real tip is that when you’re fixing it in the oven or on the stovetop, you need to neutralize the “fishy” scent. Garlic as a seasoning won’t be enough! Either splash some white wine on the fish in the last 2 minutes or simmer vinegar (pref. white vinegar) in a saucepan on a back burner. Works like a charm.

  5. Thanks for the tip Janet. Another technique my friend uses (she cooks fish all the time) is to soak it in milk. That takes away all the fishy smell. She says the fishy smell indicates that the fish isn’t as fresh as it could be.
