fish thaf doesnt taste like fish.

I cook fish in my home very often. I prefer stronger tasting fish unlike my family. For my son I prepare tilapia fillets simply in foil with butter,salt and pepper and slices of lemon and dill wrapped up and grilled. Very nice lemony butter and dill flavor with almost no fish taste.

Walleye is, for me, the best fish. The next favorite is cod. I grew up eating fresh-caught walleye in Northern MN. I bring it back to SE Ontario everytime I go--yeah--there is Ontario walleye, but there is something special about catching walleye in Lake of the Woods, helping my dad/cousin/god father clean it, and bringing it home. Walleye, to me, is as good as lobster--sweet. And, it is never fishy...or at least it has never been so in my experience.

Smoked Salmon sashimi...

OMG, dipped in just a little sriracha sauce....with a drop of soy sauce on it. Pure heaven!

Also, if you are eating fish for health reasons, avoid Tilapia that isn't raised in the US.
There is very little farmed fish that is healthy to eat, regardless of where it is raised. US raised catfish and Norwegian salmon being exceptions.

US farm raised shellfish (oysters, mussels, etc.) are fine. Shrimp from anywhere outside US is a very bad choice.

Very true, but US tilapia is less risky than eating tilapia farmed overseas. Sadly almost all tilapia sold in the US comes from outside the country, which makes eating tilapia a bad gamble.
