Have any healthy fish recipes that might appeal to a fish-hater?

I want to try and eat fish at least once a week because I hear time and time again how healthy it is, but I can’t stand that seafood taste it has.

Have any healthy recipes for fish that might appeal to me? I need something that masks or minimizes that distinctive seafood flavor fish has.
It’s not just about the omega-3s. I need some protein variety. I’m getting tired of chicken.

    you can always just buy omega 3 supplements and take those in pill form (it’s in fish) and then avoid eating it all together

    This is funny. If you do not like that “distinctive seafood flavor”, then don’t eat it. You can get the omega 3 from vitamin tablets or something like cod liver oil tablets. Search omega 3 on google and see what you can find.

    Have you ever tried Talapia? I am not real big on fish, but I just love Talapia. I buy frozen Talapia at Sam’s Club, but I’m sure you could find it at almost any grocery store. And if your store has a Seafood Counter, sometimes you can find fresh Talapia. It can be baked in the oven or pan-fried. I like mine just pan fried in a little olive oil and unsalted butter and seasoned with a little salt and pepper. But you can add lemon juice, lemon pepper, red pepper flakes, or any other seasoning that you like.

    They sound delicious! One time I made Haddock Parmesan, Just find any recipe for Egg Plant Parmesan and replace the egg plant with haddock. My husband, who hates fish, loved this recipe!
    Happy cooking 🙂

    cook by steaming and add black bean sauce or poach in chicken stock and add the sauce along with green onions and celery. Choose a more flavorful fish ie milder flavor and ensure fish is fresh or if frozen can be cooked from that state. I would suggest trying salmon,sea bass steaks, swordfish steaks , king fish steaks , sole fillet , if frying go for the halibut and haddock,if doing whole trout or red snapper another you may try are the ranch raised cat fish fillets that are seasoned with lemon or cajun style. I love seafood even for breakfast and my wife can not abide it in the morning but will join me when I make salmon sandwiches from tinned salmon (red sockeye) add chopped celery and mayonnaise and a few dashes of liquid smoke . Keep the pink salmon for loaves and fish cakes by adding crumb seasonings and an egg.

    Absolutely!
    Do you like sushi? Some of my friends hate fish itself but will happily eat salmon or tuna sushi!
    You could include fish in spring rolls, use little amounts in sandwiches or wraps, make a fish/seafood chowder or curry… The trick is to include small amounts but build it up as you get used to it.
    Another trick is to mix flaked/chunky fish (i.e flaked tuna) with mayonnaise or salad dressing such as thousand island, and then spread that into your sandwich/wrap. That gives it a really nice creamy taste and the smell won’t be as strong, which means it will appeal more.
    I used to be not so keen on fish myself, but started small and increased the amount slowly. Now, fish is one of my favourite foods and I eat it about 3 times a week!
    Good luck with these (:

    Salmon is less fishy tasting to me than many fish. Try broiling it, and basting it with a soy sauce/brown sugar mixture. I’m sure there are recipes out there for it, I don’t have one but just wing it.

    If your seafood has a fishy seafood taste, its probably not very fresh :/

    Buy fresh fish for a good fish monger in your area and try things like:

    baked breaded flounder ot tilapia (tastes like chicken)
    shrimp and pesto over pasta
    honey bbq salmon (just salmon grilled with bbq sauce)

    This onion confit is so freakin’ good and it pretty much obliterates the fish flavor ;D
    The fish can be baked or pan sauteed if you can’t grill it.

    Tuna Or Swordfish With Onion Confit

    3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    3 large or 4 or 5 medium onions, peeled and thinly sliced
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    1 large thyme sprig or 1 bay leaf
    2 medium tomatoes, cored
    1 1/2 to 2 pounds tuna or swordfish, cut into steaks or left whole
    About 1/2 cup pitted and roughly chopped black olives

    1.Put olive oil in a 10- or 12-inch skillet, and turn heat to medium. Add onions, a good pinch of salt, pepper and thyme or bay leaf. Cook, stirring, until mixture starts to sizzle, a minute or two. Adjust heat so that you need to stir at most every 5 minutes to keep onions from browning as they soften. Cook at least 30 minutes.
    2.Meanwhile, cut tomatoes in half and shake out seeds, then cut into 1/2-inch dice. Heat a grill until moderately hot.
    3.When onions are very soft, almost a shapeless mass, season fish and grill, turning once, for a total of about 6 minutes for tuna, 8 to 10 minutes for swordfish; check for doneness by making a small cut in the center to peek inside. While fish is grilling, stir olives and tomatoes into onions, and raise heat; cook, stirring occasionally, until tomatoes liquefy and mixture becomes juicy. Taste, and adjust seasoning. Serve fish on a bed of onion confit, whole fish cut into serving portions.
