  • Does anyone eat fish regularly? I grew up eating mostly ground beef and other red meats. Now I make chicken pretty much every day. My dh loves ground beef, but wow, it's too fatening so we only eat it once in a while. So I want to try to start eating fish. Whats a good fish to start with? Honestly I have no idea how to buy it, or cook it I'm a fish dummy really. I've actually never eaten fish - besides fish sticks, but I don't think those count. My mom hates it so I have never really had a taste for it, but I want to give it a try! Any suggestions?

  • I'm the same way with fish. I found this recipe that I was going to try.

    Servings: 4


    1 cup flour
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    4 (6-ounce) white fish fillets (monkfish, haddock, etc.)
    4 teaspoons margarine
    4 teaspoons diced ginger root
    Lemon slices to cover fillets

    Set the oven to broil and grease a broiler pan with oil. Combine the flour, salt and pepper on a large plate. Dredge the fillets in flour, covering both sides. Dot the fillets with the margarine, sprinkle them with the ginger and cover with lemon slices. Broil for 5 to 15 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily.

  • The way we love it best here is to just put some lemon juice, maybe a bit of butter and some seasoning (play with it and use what you know you like) on the fish and either broil it or grill it. It's really very easy and even my kids love it. Start with Tilapia or Orange Roughy, I think they have a milder taste. But our favorite here is Salmon.

    Also, we use ground turkey for everything we used to use ground beef for and can hardly notice a difference. Really, we use it for everything - tacos, meatloaf, whatever. And it's MUCH better for you!

  • I agree, Tilapia is a very mild start for a beginning fish-eater. I also like Chilean sea bass (and my husband, the midwesterner who doesn't eat anything that swims, has actually eaten that and liked it OKAY).

    If you like ground beef, you'll love ground ostrich. It's a little pricey, but it has half the fat of chicken breast, and it tastes like Angus beef. Mmmmm.

  • I love salmon!
    I think white fish like haddock, halibut, etc are pretty mild tasting too- if you want to start out slow and get used to the taste. I like to put a few spices on mine and wrap it in foil and bake it in the oven. Yum!
