Hi,
I know there is probably no way around it, but to me fish is the last thing I want to eat.  I literally can handle two bites at most.  for a type B, is there ANY way I could get whatever it is that fish gives me from something else?  Or does any one have any suggestions on a way I could eat it without tasting it???  Thanks!

Perhaps u can bake a wild salmon steak with lots of garlic and afterwards add a dash of seasalt, cayenne pepper, Olive oil and some freshly squeezed lemon ... I usually accompany that with a dish of rotini rice pasta, green peas and lots of red onions, garnished with Olive oil and curry ... very yummy !!

Hi I┤m the same
Fish for me is very limited.
My way of dealing with this was ( I have followed BTD 8 years this september )

At first I just took 3 grams of fish oil every day- at least I got some of the benefits from fish
Then I found out that scallops was ok - tasted sweet and not at all fishy.

Then I found out that really fresh cod is pretty ok- lots of lemonjuice.

I still don┤t like hot salmon- but cold salmon with lots of lemonjuice and creme fraise( 38 % ) is ok....

Today I eat 1 serving of fish pr week- and my tastebuds have improved a lot a like more fish now....
BUT áplease get really fresh fish- never frozen
- don┤t overcook it
- lemonjuice can do wonders as well as homemade mayo or /sour cream

Yesterday we had salmon rolls for dinner--strips of salmon steak rolled with a spread of sheep's milk feta cheese and spinach. It was good hot and cold (I had some leftovers a little later). Not fishy tasting at all, just nice and savory because of the feta/spinach mixture

Henriette is right--really fresh fish is the way to go, if you can get it. The taste is actually very delicate. I am not all that fond of fish myself, but love cod steamed with chives, or batter-coated for fish n chips (sweet potato oven fries, yum!). Salmon is good in pan-fried salmon cakes or salad, and fresh salmon steaks served with creme fraise or sour cream and a little dill is delicious.

Take it slow and experiment to find the recipes that work for you. I'll bet you'll find one or two that will help you eat more fish and actually enjoy the experience.

Sounds good Brigid. thanks - might be a way of making me eat hot salmon-

I grew up eating my mother's homemade fishcakes--cod and mashed potatoes, they were delicious believe it or not! But I like fish cold too, though I don't like sushi. Salmon is delicious smoked! Now you're making me want lox !!

Wild salmon is the only cooked fish that I really enjoy, and I eat it very often.  Most other fish taste fishy or have an unpleasant texture to me.  But wild salmon is food fit for the gods in my opinion.

Otherwise, you can get a good quality (such as Carlson's) cod liver oil capsules to take as a supplement.

The fishy taste of fish is generally due to old fish.
Honestly fresh fish should be hardly noticable - But then I'm not so clear what you find disagreeable.
Salmon and Mackerel are more fatty than most - unfortunately for you, its these Omega-3s that are found in these particular fish that we need more of...some of these similar oils can be be found sparingly in some seeds - but these also tend to be avoids in terms of BTD..
The bottomfish that are mentioned above may be easier for the novice seafood eater to stomach, but they are way less in the beneficial fatty acids.

ALso many preceding threads mention toxicity of seafood, well from my POV the Bottom fish would also have more of this than the free swimming fishes.

'Sushi Grade' Tuna has virtually no fishlike fishiness much closer to beef and its fatty. Sturgeon is good BBQed.

Then again rather than preparing the fish by itself - Maybe a route to try would be a Seafood Chowder or Gumbo/Jambalya/Etouffe sort of dish. THere is so many other flavours happening that you may not notice the fish so much?..

Personally - the recipes using a cream sauce are more to make the not so fresh grocery fish more palatable.

Plain broiled fish with a dollop of finely Daikon/Mooli is very easy, quick, and one of my favourite methods - and much different in flavour.

also rather than Garlic, etc. - For fatty fish like Mackerel use Ginger Paste instead...

I'm right there with ya, Sousakuteki.  I've been a total fish-phobe forever.

I can occasionally force down a salmon patty with a ton of lemon juice and dill.  I absolutely love all shellfish but they are avoids for me.  I enjoy a Burger King or McDonald's fish sandwich but those are positively deadly.  Or the rare tuna fish sandwich drenched in Miracle Whip and onions is palatable but now not a reality.

I take 2.5 grams of fish oil each day and leave it at that.   I'll keep my fingers crossed for you, though!

Sousakuteki, wishing you a warm welcome to BTD and the forums!!  
I feel your pain about not liking fish. About the only fish I can get down is salmon. I love it fixed w/ the spinach and feta that Brig was talking about. That is sooooooooo good. I do fix salmon patties, but much prefer it fresh.  The occasional fried cod is good, but not good FOR me.  My all time fave fish is catfish, now an avoid.  
Another suggestion, try to be sure what you are buying is wild caught, not farm raised. If that is all the store has, I skip the fish.

I love salmon, but am concerned as I sometimes get a tingling in my mouth and soreness around my lips when I eat it - maybe this indicates its not so good for me?

perhaps it is farm raised salmon, fed with soy beans, mostly GE.

Hi Sousakuteki,
You could cut very small pieces of fish (the size of a tablet) and freeze them. You could then take one each day like you would a tablet. I have tried this with liver because I don't like its taste but do like its nutrients, it might work with fish as well.

Have you tried sushi?  I absolutely cannot stand cooked fish, but if it is raw, I Love it.  It's more like meat that way.

And a warm Welcome to you as well Sousakuteki!!  Wonderful to have you here.

Not really. Some fish, I believe, is frozen on ship just after it is caught and is actually fresher than fish which is caught then cooled, transported and ástored.

More important is whether it is compliant and of good quality.

except for that little detail: polyamines. but sometimes that can't be helped and we just eat some walnuts or pineapple at the same meal.
(polyamines are a negative effect caused by flash-freezing....and certain polyphenols can mitigate the effects)
there is a lot of info on this.

yes, all the fish i eat (Even though it comes from frozen) is obviously compliant, usually beneficial if i eat salmon. i just find it so much cheaper and easier to pop out of the freezer whenever i need it! i do eat walnuts and pineapple alot though, if that might help????

Hi all,
as a non vegetarian A secretor I eat 4 or 5 times a week fish and my favourites are wild salmon (seldom on the market here in Italy), monk fish, perch, sea bass, porgy, pagellus, perch, cod and sword fish, that arrive in the shops nearly daily. My town is only 40 KM from one of Adriatic sea fishing places.
When fresh fish is a great delicacy and, I second Shoulderblade, also immediately frozen I like fish.
It is just important to get used when as a child you ate it seldom or never.

Best regards Maria Giovanna

I love fish but everything that I can get is frozen. I am beginning to wonder if it would be best to just take Seacure and stop chasing the bad polyamines?
