Grouper is a wonderful firm, mild tasting fish.

My favorite way to prepare it is to cut it into inch and a half chunks and poach it in a little Italian salad dressing, nothing else needed. The vinegary taste of the salad dressing goes away, leaving all those lovely spices. It doesn't get much better tasting than that and could not possibly be easier.

My personal recommendation to OP is to stick with white fleshed fish that he knows are fresh. If you can smell fish, you don't want to buy that. and cook it the same day.

Fresh wild Alaskan Halibut is definitely not a fishy fish. Spread the fillet with a thin film of Dijon mustard and coat the top with seasoned bread crumbs (made from fresh bread, not tinned) Bake in a preheated 350 oven for about 10 minutes (10 minutes per 1 inch of thickiness of the fish is a good rule of thumb), then run under the broiler for a few seconds to brown the crumb topping.

BT, no one raises hogs that way anymore. Modern high volume hog farming techniques are very different. Check this out:

No self-respecting pig farmer would EVER let his/her hogs eat excrement! I don't know where you got that misinformation, BT. My grandfather and two of my uncles raised pork for market, and I helped in a lot of their procedures growing up. I can tell you for a fact that pigs are the cleanest animals on the farm. They are very fastidious. The fact that they love to roll in the mud does not make them dirty. And they do not eat garbage, and certainly not excrement.

Un-fishy fish:
fresh tuna, with the blood line, back, and belly removed
Cod
Red Snapper
Flounder
Perch
Smelt
Small Mouth Bass
Whitefish
Herring
Catfish
Sunfish
Crappie
Walleye

And for canned tuna, not all canned tuna is albacore, only the white tuna, and it is the tuna with the heavy metal and dioxin contaminants.

How hard would it have been to come up with a name for a fish other than crappie?

Just snorted my ice tea Andy.

As for "fishy tasting" fresh fish, I think salmon is at the top of my list. I just don't get the popularity of salmon.

I really enjoy salmon but SO dislikes it. When I'm having salmon, I cook haddock for her. On the other hand, we both love swordfish.
