Help Me! I hate fish!!

I really hate the taste of fish. Don't want to smell it or look at it either. However, my doctor says I must work it into my diet.

I am looking for VERY simple ways of cooking that will mask the flavor and texture as much as possible.

I have tried broiling it and then drowning it in vinegar and that helps, but can I get some other suggestions please? I thought grilling (and burning) it might help also??

Have you tried herbs such as rosemary or thyme? What about lemon juice? I agree with you I hate fish also and I am too having a hard time working it into my diet. Good luck and maybe we both can learn something from everyone, else.

What foods do you like? If you pair things you like with the fish that might make it more palatable. I will bump Kitchenelf's spicy fish stew, that's a healthy and easy recipe which tastes of other things, the fish is kind of incidental. Make sure you buy the freshest and best quality fish that you can afford, fresh fish is not as "fishy" as older fish. Teriyaki and other asian flavours go well with fish and might take away the "fishiness".

Best of luck, I love fish so I am lucky, take pity on me though, as it has been suggested to me that I eat liver to boost my iron - YUCK!!!!!!!

I understand what youre saying regarding the LIVER. The only thing I can offer there is to make sure it is VERY thin when you cook it. Sliver thin!! Saute with onions (lots) and cook it WELL. I almost burn it to get through it.

Of course I can get down fish better when it is breaded.....but, that is a big no no according to the doctor. I'm going to fire up the grill tomorrow and see if I can figure something out. I will try the lemon and spices.

How about "blackened"? How would I do that?

Here's a link for a 'heart healthy' site that has recipes for oven-fried fish, and lots of other 'oven fried' goodies, which are a little better for you than deep fried!

Ciship, you might want to follow Dr. Andrew Weil's suggestion in his acclaimed book 'Spontaneous Healing' for people who need good cholesterol from fish oils but who don't like fish: Grind up flax seed into fine powder and sprinkle on food at meals. I highly recommend his book. You might also want to check out his newer books at his website.

Yes, I am very familiar with Dr. Weil. Thank you for the recommendation.

I take Flax Seed oil capsules, but when I used to get the grounds or ground them myself, I would gain enormous amounts of weight very quickly even if I cut way back on my intake of the grounds. My body does that with other healthy fats as well like Avocado, nuts, etc....I just blow up like a puffer fish when I eat healthy fats.
