I have a question about fish.  Since I started the BTD a couple of weeks ago, I've been eating grilled salmon about 3-4 times per week.  Lately though, I'm really getting turned off of it because no matter how careful I am, I keep finding bones!  I can't enjoy it any more.    Is there any way that I can avoid this or is there a better type of fish out there that I can eat that doesn't have so many tiny bones in it?  Or is there possibly a trick to getting all of the pesky bones out?? Any advice is welcome!

you can use some tweezers and pull those out before cooking.

I guess findng them is the part I'm having trouble with.  They're so dang small; it seems like I have to tear the fillet apart to find them all.

well, I am trying to eat more fish, and I am liking halibut very much. It doesn't seem as bony....I don't know if that is one you can have, but I bet it is...

Grilled tuna steaks are delicious. Also you could try baking fish such as tilipia, bass, trout, rockfish, or perch. If you bake fish you can rub some olive oil on top, then sprinkle favorite spice/herb, onion, garlic, and squeeze some lemon juice on top.  Depending on the amount of fish it usually on takes about 20-30 minutes @ 350.

You might want to think about saute'ng(maybe tuna for this) in some olive oil. Add favorite spices. Serve over rice or noodles
w/veggies.

I happen to live in an area that fresh fish is available. We have friends that go out and catch fish and we have fish fry's. When I cooked last time I used olive oil to fry the fish(didnt tell anyone this). It turned out delicious. This was rockfish(nice white flakey fish), red drum, and sheeps head.

I like cod. I buy some at our local Sam's which is one of those bulk store places. I spray some of that spray butter on it and some seasonings and its quite tasty.

Perhaps my problem is that I've been buying a half fish with skin and all.  I can try buying it already filleted so they can do the work for me.  And I will certainly try some of the other fish suggestions...they sound yummy and nothing beats a good dinner of fish, rice, and veggies!!

Yep, fileted fish is the way to go.  Like you, I don't want to have to tear my meal apart looking for bones.

Cod is beneficial for you, and also very rarely boney when it is a prepared fillet, accjulie.

Just a little tip on how to fry it well...do not oil it and then put it in a hot frying pan as you would with most other fish such as the oily fish salmon/tuna. Cod fillets fry best when they are placed in a *cold* oiled frying pan and then brought up to heat.
