    Well, trying to get back into better shape. :weights:Doc has said my cholesterol and blood pressure are borderline but can be fixed with lifestyle changes. More exercise and better eating. Seems most places I read suggest fish at least 1-2 times per week. I have never liked seafood (grew up on the tributaries of the Chesapeake Bay fishing and crabbing in my backyard and still wouldn't eat it.) Anyone have any suggestions to "convert" a non-seafood eater? Thinking maybe it could be an acquired taste if you start with less fishy fish or proper seasonings. I have read many things that say soak in milk for 30 minutes, dredge in breadcrumbs and drop into a fryer gets rid of the taste, but I am also trying to get away from fried stuff for the same reasons I am looking at eating fish.

    Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    My Gawd! Who doesn't love seafood! Sorry, I had to say that, I grew up a few blocks from the Pacific ocean and fish, octopus, clams, mussels, geoducks, crab: both Dungeness and Red Rock, Sea urchin roe, Sea Cucumber, squid, scallops, prawns, shrimp, lobster, (I'm salivating as I write this) and oysters were staple fare. Anyway, to your question: smoking is a great way to cook fish for people who aren't seafood lovers 'cause who doesn't love BBQ, right? Smoked Salmon is a delicious treat and easy to do, either cold-smoked or hot-smoked. I prefer cold-smoked Salmon but I recommend hot-smoked for you, it's less fishy tasting and a delicious glaze can be made from Soy sauce, brown sugar, and garlic powder. Too bad you don't live near me, I'd do a feast for you that would change your mind forever about seafood!

    Growing up in Deep East Texas in the '70's I never had any seafood that wasn't just nasty. I don't like seafood to this day and hold my breath when I walk past the fish counter at the store. Fried Catfish is about the limit of my fish eatin' & that probably ain't anything like healthy.

    There's a little Chinese restuarant off Main Street in Vancouver that serves whole steamed fresh caught Rockfish with black-bean, garlic and ginger sauce. Sublime!

    Soaking in milk overnight will definitely help to get some of the "fishy" taste out of just about any fish, but you might want to start off with a milder tasting fish like tilapia. A simple recipe is to sprinkle the fish with a seasoning like Tony's, drizzle it with lemon juice, top with a thin pat of margarine, wrap in foil but leave the top slightly open, and bake it in the oven or cook on the grill.

    Blackened and seared tuna steak with some soy and wasabi on the side ... not fishy at all. Also try salmon burgers.

    Thanks for the suggestions so far. I think I may go by HEB's seafood section this evening to see what they have. I was told fresh is better than frozen when it comes to the fishy taste, so I will ask what they have fresh.
