Fresh caught trout ... cooked over a camp fire.

Oysters, shrimp and clams ( do they count as fish?)

I do not however like salmon unless it's smoked and made into a dip.

I'll go with Mackerel. Fresh or Smoked I think it's great. Smoked Mackerel mixed with cream cheese, horseradish, lemon and garlic combined into a pate is a favourite of mine spread onto toasted brown bread.

I am not a huge fan of fish. I do like certain fried varieties (meaning anything fried!) I also like all shellfish. Smoked salmon too.

Have rarely had a fish I did not like. One of us is agin fish so we don't have it often.

Adore swordfish, but have not seen it is over thrity years.

Am not a real fan of salmon unless it is the smoked, lox, kins. Don't know why it just doesn't make me happy.

Other than that white fish, oily fish, I don't care they are all good.

I prefer seafood above all meats... I know some do not count fish as meat, but I would prefer to eat fish before beef, foul, pork, etc.

Fish... Mahi Mahi, yellow tail tuna, orange roughy to name a few. The only seafood item that I have come across that I don't like is sea urchin.

I LOVE them all!! Have yet to meet a fish or shellfish I didn't like except for, perhaps, raw Sea Urchin. And since I grew up on the waters of Long Island, NY, I've never been a big fan of freshwater fish. I'm definitely a salt water girl. One thing I really miss is fishing for my own or buying fish right off the boats when they'd come in from Long Island Sound or the bays out on the east end. Sigh.

As far as favorites?

All shellfish - mussels, clams, lobster, shrimp, all types of crab

Finfish - Bluefish, Mackerel, Flounder, Swordfish, Tuna, Wahoo, Striped Bass (known as Rockfish down here in the south), Blackfish (boy, do I miss that - can't get it down here). Really, there are too many to list - I really do love them all.

Love em all but tied at the top would be Walleye and Mississippi catfish.
I have tried most of the things others have listed on here, love em all. Some things rack higher than others not for taste but for memories, like fishing for bass, trout, crappies, perch, blue gills, sun fish, catfish and walleye.
Great fish great memories: catch em, clean em, fillet em, grill em and eat em.

I've never met a sea animal that I didn't enjoy eating. Nantucket Bay Scallops are my single favorite food in the world. Other special favorites include (Wild Alaska) salmon, walleye, Lake Superior whitefish, Wild American Shrimp, anybody's crab, oysters, both foreign and domestic, and on and on and on.

Not sure where it is that salmon is inexpensive, tho... Most Farm raised salmon is not safe to eat, so I don't buy it unless I know it came from Norway or Scotland. Around here salmon costs at least $11 per pound.

Wine is the food that completes the meal.
