Question Fish recipes that don't taste fishy?

I am all about getting fish (preferrably cod since it isn't really fishy) in my diet. But the thing is I HATE fish with a passion. So I was hoping someone could tell me recipes that allow me to cook fish so the seasoning will over-power the fish taste?

Well.......all fish taste different.....to me, anyway.
You probably like Cod (somewhat) because it is a very mild
tasting fish. Flounder, Orange Roughy, and Sole would be
similar.

You can marinate them in some Italian Dressing for a
few hours; that should cover up any Fishy flavor. You can do the
same with Salmon; but marinate it for 6 hours or longer, as it has
a strong flavor. You could season the Fish very heavily with
your favorite seasonings; like...Pepper, Garlic, Lemon, ect.

You could cover the Fish with a Pasta Sauce of some kind.
If you like Mexican food; you could cover the Fish with some
"Chili Verde" (green chili).

You can also make any fish into a salad, like Tuna Salad.
Just add some Mayonnaise, Mustard, Celery, Pepper, Garlic,
and whatever other seasonings you like.

Tilapia is the most tasteless of fish, IMO. I think you could probably choke it down. Available everywhere.

Anyway , to make a fish less fishy, you could try by rubbing some lemon juice on them :)

Soaking the piece of fish in milk overnight will remove a LOT of the fishiness taste.
But if you are looking for specific ways to season it so the fish is masked, "blacken" it. Blackened fish is really more about the seasoning than the fish.

If your fish is FRESH, it won't taste or smell fishy. "Fishy" happens when the fish has passed that threshold of freshness. When you go into a market, if you can smell what you identify as "fish," likely it isn't fresh. If you start with fresh, you'll be much more pleased, and you won't have to do anything to "mask" the flavor.

Besides, if you really don't LIKE fish, why are you punishing yourself by eating it?

You might try sashimi, which oddly enough doesn't look, smell or taste "fishy."

Nutrition pundits aside, it's not medicine.

How can I get ahold of fresh fish? The ones I buy at the market are most certianly not fresh... In fact I kept my cod in the fridge 2 days after I bought it
And I just want a healthier alternative I guess. I literally eat no fish so I feel the mix up will do my diet good.

Find a reputable seller.

Always smell it before you buy. It should not have a discernable "fishy" smell but should smell very neutral or even like the ocean.

Cook it that night.

Also, if you are eating fish for health reasons, avoid Tilapia that isn't raised in the US. The tilapia sold in most stores comes from foreign countries such as China where it is farmed in unsanitary conditions.
