My swami gives me 5 servings of fish per wk. I have trouble eating much fish as it hasn't always appealed to me. I really dislike the "fishy" fish. The ones that have strong tastes. What ones should I try? I like swai (catfish?) and sole, love cod, and surprisingly like sardines. I've always liked canned tuna but need to avoid it now. I tried perch and grouper and one (perch. I think.) was good.


Very likely allergic to dairy, gluten makes me moody, caffeine makes my heart race, fragrances give me hives and headaches..I shouldve known I'm an Explorer. Swami knows best.

I'm a major fan of fresh, wild-caught salmon.

Cod is very healing for our digestive tract. I enjoy it with steamed veggies for my first meal of the day which is usually at 12:00. The next fish that I like is wild caught salmon.

Halibut, snapper, swordfish, scrod...
I don't know:
- how many are in your household
- what fishes are available to you FRESH
- which fishes the monger/grocer/butcher is willing to provide in size/cuts that suit you
- what your budget is

...but you'll have to consider these factors, Rachel.
Halibut and swordfish are pricy, but very tasty, and if your portion sizes are small and/or you share with others, you can enjoy these delicious fishes.
Sole can be available in very small pieces.

But I'd sample all of these, ultimately, and let your palate and your cooking-pleasure/comfort be your guides.

If you like canned sardines you'll like canned herring. I'm looking at the explorer fish list, monkfish would be nice if you can find it. Monkfish is called "the poor man's lo9bster". Whitefish is rather common, pompano if you lived near Florida, drum is just anotyher name for red fish also known as red drum. Red drum is good smoked, cooked on the grill, or baked. Croaker is known as a trash fish around here and fishermen on the piers would probably give them to you. Grouper is recommended for you but it is not a very sustainible variety.

Wild caught salmon...grilled with a touvh of evoo, ginger and fresh squeezed lime juice...yummo! Add a little honey and oh my goodness!

Cod....another favorite.

Tilapia...grilled with evoo a squeeze of lemon and sea salt.

Fresh is always first choice!

i hate fish so i tend towards the milder fishes since i am supposed to at it at least 4 times per week. I've worked up to 2-3 so i'm getting there. I usually get cod, Mahi mahi or tuna steaks. they are the most mild flavor that are on the bene list for me.

In addition to wild caught salmon, my favorite is European seabass Dicentrarchus labrax, which is not in Swami yet.

I know that cod is the best for me, but I have to kind of struggle with myself before I thaw it. It's available in the market, but only frozen. I keep these 3 kinds in the freezer and choose each time at will.

I like grilled trout, cod and salmon.  I love sushi tuna lightly seared but fear the issues of eating huge fish that have stored so many toxins and heavy metals.  Mahi mahi is one of my diamond fish...
A flaky sweet white fish that is very good.  Tilapia is farmed raised and although I like it, it's at the
bottom of my list of favorites due to the farming.

Rachel, if your SWAMI allows you trout, I'd consider that, too. It just couldn't be easier. Chloe recommends it grilled, above, but I like roasting it en papillote.
You can stuff it with thinly sliced fennel and onion, a rosemary sprig, a lemon slice, and a sprinkle of olive oil, then fold the two halves together and seal it loosely in foil, and bake.

Trout is not a pricy fish, either.
