halibut or cod.

whiting isn't as fishy either, but halibut is my favorite.

however...downside is the best nutrtional values comes from oilier fish, which tend to be gamier. *lol*

protein is protein though. it's not like fish has added carbs in it or somethin, just the fat content that would fluctuate.

good idea, oily fish are great sources of eicosapentaenoic acid & docosahexaenoic acid ;)

good for the brain. Essential infact, for the heart and artieries also. Mackerel is a good one - as is fresh tuna.

I also don't eat fish, well seafood if you really care. But last week I tried some tuna fish, can I just say it tasted like piss if you ask me, I doubt I will ever be able to deal with seafood.

Holy holy holy. If your gonna eat fish. You gotta go with baked salmon. Nothin tastes better. Not even nutter butters. Plus its got good fat and protein. And yeah, maybe some more carbs than other fish- but whatever, its good.

I didn't think Princesses said "piss". I thought they just went "tinkle" :D

If you rub lots of mayo all over your fish before you cook it, the mayo will remove the fishy taste. I do it all the time :)

Salmon is the best. I put a little lemon pepper seasoning on it and bake @ 400 for 20-25 minutes.

It's one of the "fishier" tasting fish, though.

Maybe, but it also has the richest taste, imo. Make sure the salmon you get is good quality and fresh.
Nothing worse than old salmon :(

and tuna is pretty fishy. opening the can is a trip under the sea in itself lol

exactly.

and manip asked for fish that don't taste "fishy". *lol*

ie: less oily ones with white flesh.

Gino, do you not find that cooking at that temperature 'degenerates' the good fats?

gino

Yeah, it does break down the EFA's somewhat. You'd have to cook it much longer to break them down totally. The faster you can cook it and eat it, the better.

I cook salmon, tuna, and yellow fin tuna (expensive as hell), all of em are good, a less fishy tasting fish is catfish, but salmon is prolly the best overall imo.

Ahh yes, our good friends the two long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids(eicosapentaenoic acid & docosahexaenoic acid). Yes mackrel is a good source as is shell-fish,herring, sardines and fresh water tuna. Their are numerous benfits on your lipid profile mainly plasma triglycerides, as well as the overall heart disease risk.

Fish shouldn't really be "fishy". "Fishy" fish is old fish. That's why most people (mainland) don't like fish. The majority of people in Hawaii love fish. Raw or cooked, it's all good. Only down side of fresh fish is that it's expensive! Better to catch your own. ;)

Mani-a real simple recipe for salmon is rub it with olive oil salt pepper and lemon juice. Bake for about 8 minutes per pound at around 400(skin side up if the skin is on) fish should flake when forked. If you need anything else feel free to ask,

We all know that catfish is the best tasting fish, nothing better, and you gotta catch it and skin it yerselves, I know girls you don't like touching the worms ; ) (jk)

how about smoked salmon instead of normal salmon as its not quite as fishy.

01-13-2002, 08:20 AM
Skin side up huh? Well I don't know about that. I mean, my mother makes a fierce baked salmon, better than most restaurants, and she never does skin side up. Maybe I should ask her to try it next time I roll around her way.

And yes i feel like a first grader by telling you about what my mother can cook.

Salmon is considered to be the bodybuilder's dream...High Protein, very low fat, and a good amount of omega fatty acids/fish oils.....

Unfortunately its not the best tasting fish out there, but if you are already eating healthy, i'm sure you are getting use to dealing with below average tastes.

salmon is probably one of the fattiest fishes in the ocean. :rolleyes: But its a good fat so its all good.

actually some types of salmon are much fattier than others. I have found several brands of smoked salmon where fat for 2oz is from 1.5-3g and several with 8-10g. Same for canned salmon, great variety in fat content.

I wouldn't worry about the fat content in fish. The fat in fish is mostly omega-3 in the form of epa and mono unsaturated fat. So eat eat eat all the fish that you want.

Aeck-yep skin side up if you are baking and skin side down if your doing it in a skillet

Also if you have the canned salmon mix it with some olive oil and pesto and throw it in a pita and then you have a quick delicous sandwich. I also throw in some spinach and tomato.
