    Default How do I make zucchini noodles? Where do you buy nice fish that is not fishy?

    I have lots of questions.

    Let's start with these two...

    1) How do I make zucchini noodles?

    2) Where do I buy fish that is not fishy? - I've bought some Australian fish from Woolworths a few times and it's been horrible. We've bought a lightly crumbed Australian/New Zealand fish from the frozen section and it's been fine. I want to include more fish in our diets but get turned off by bad produce.

    Also - what do you do with your fish? I can't have crumbed unless it's something like quinoa or chia, etc.

    1) buy a spirooli- don't get the crappy little green one, you need the big one with a handle!

    number 2) have you tried flake? aka shark? I find it's not fishy at all. we also dislike fish with a strong fishy flavour and found flake is nice and mild.

    No, I haven't tried flake at home before. I think I must usually get a perch or brim or something. Will have to try flake - Do the supermarkets stock Australian-sourced flake?

    Plenty of places online have them. I know our local kitchen supplies place carries them as well.

    2. Definitely try flake. I usually oven bake it in an aluminum foil pouch with some butter and slices of lemon.

    Get your fish from a fishmonger and it will be better and fresher. I usually get any nice looking local fresh (not thawed) fish and pan fry in butter or olive oil. Red emperor is my fave but is often $$$$. Serve with veg or salad - fennel and apple slaw is great - and maybe a nice beurre blanc or other sauce.

    I'm not thrilled with the idea of eating shark - usually eating the apex predator of a food chain isn't a great idea - but haven't researched this in-depth so don't ask me any more questions about this.

    not sure, we usually buy from the markets or a fish market. I've bought hoki fillets before from aldi although can't recall where they're from. they are very mild too.

    stay right away from basa fillets. they're sourced from south east Asia and I really question the quality of the fish (they're really cheap too so make of that what you will)

    I think the only way is to just read the packaging. I've definitely seen hoki fillets at Coles. they do crumbed ones too.

    I reckon your best bet is to go to a good fish market and buy a kilo of fresh flake then freeze it into portions.

    just be careful with flake if you're utd as its shark, which can be a Mercury risk so you're only supposed to eat limited amounts.

    it's a bit hard with fish really!!

    If you want nice fresh fish every time, IME you have to either buy from a fish shop, or buy it frozen from the supermarket.
    I rarely trust supermarket deli's. They are so dodgy.

    And yes as PP's have said, flake is not fishy.
