My wife isn't a big fish lover, but she does like when I give it a quick dredge in seasoned flour and a browning in olive oil....Lots of lemon, cracked pepper, and fresh parsley.....

Cod cooked any which way, blackfish (tautog), sea bass, haddock, Lake Superior whitefish, even small bluefish (under 5 lbs) if caught not more than 4 hours before cooking are, to my taste, quite good. The key is freshness. Many, if not most, people do not have access to really fresh fish. The official definition of fresh fish is fish that has not been previously frozen - yuk.

My definition of fresh fish is when they are still wiggling on the stringer when you hit the dock.

I live 5 blocks from Lake MI and can get some super fresh fish from people I know who catch them(or I guess I could go catch some myself lol)
My dad used to catch something and theyd broil it. That was the only fish I had enjoyed as a child. When I ask them what fish and what seasonings they used, they cant remember!?

Those look amazing!
We are doing steaks tomorrow but I may have to try this Sunday! All these ideas I am getting from everyone is making me happy! We may be eating fish a lot this summer, or at least trying it different ways :) Cookbooks I have all basically have the same ways to cook it all...mustard, lemon, grill, lol (I know grill isnt a seasonings but basically they say to grill it all)
They sell frozen hush puppies at one of the stores here and those are actually pretty good. I never tried to make them from scratch.

I remembered when I saw you say this earlier that my ex told me the same thing. He even promised to make me some that Id love no matter what, but he never got around to it. Oh well.

fish, recipe

ISO new recipe for a non fish lover I am looking for a recipe for fish. I have access to lake perch, bass, salmon, cod, haccock, talipia, swordfish and tuna. I dont like to buy frozen fish. I also am not a big fan of the 'fishy' taste, but would like to start eating fish and my oldest loves it but I think he gets tired of it being grilled. Thanks! Wanted to add, I do love blackened swordfish but I can not blacken foods in my apartment as it would set off everyones fire alarms and I dont think theyd be thrilled with that ;) 3 stars 1 reviews
