    Default Non fishy fish :-P

    Hi!
    I have realised that my kids do not eat fish at all! I know it has so many amazing health benefits and I love fish! I grew up eating basa which was amazing for crumming and frying until we all learnt that they lived in sewerage!!! Since then I have struggled to find an easy fish to crum and fry that is smooth yummy and not fishy!! I have tried snapper but my kids wouldn't go for it! Any recommendations

    It's not my kids but my husband who is not a fish eater but we eat butter fish, it has no bones and a sweet taste to it (I've converted him)
    I find it easily at the market

    Flathead is my absolute favourite fish. No bones, nice and solid to crumb or just pan fry and I don't find it really 'fishy'. My second favourite is garfish but that has bones.

    I find DH ( not a dish fan) tolerates the steaky fish best like blue eye cod, salmon, sword fish and tuna and I cover it in lemon and herbs - I'm also a huge flathead fan - best fish to crumb and great for fish tacos! Or I use fish instead of meat in a lot of recipes - salmon sausage rolls, fish curry, fish burgers, fish tacos , fish pie , sword fish kebabs)

    Default Non fishy fish :-P

    Most saltwater white fleshed fish that is fresh and has not been frozen is quite mild tasting.

    I'm not sure where you live and what ships are around but highly recommend NOT buying fish from the supermarket aside from fresh farmed Tasmanian Atlantic salmon. The rest of the fish in the supermarkets have been frozen and tastes terrible.

    Snapper should be very mild tasting, if the snapper you had was fishy tasting then it was probably not fresh. Also 'snapper' could mean one of about 10 different fish. Pink snapper is the prize snapper.

    Edit: my favs are threadfin salmon (completely unrelated to Atlantic salmon), rankin cod, pink snapper, red-throat / sweetlip emperor, cobbler and swordfish.

    Whiting and kingfish are also good options. Kingfish is more fleshy and good for baking or fish stews and curries etc as it holds it's shape. Whiting is good for frying or steaming. Gar is also one of my faves, beautiful tasting.

    Otherwise other seafood is also really good for you - prawns, mussels, squid, oysters, you name it, it's good for you! High protein, low/no fat and lots of vitamins/minerals and a huge variety of dishes you can create. One of the best foods you can eat!

    Agreed!
    I grew up on the coast in WA and we ate grouper and snapper right off the boat.
    I've never crumbed fish. I'll just toss in seasoned flour and pan fry.
    Rankin cod and sweetlip are good, reasonably priced fish but you must buy it fresh!

    Haha I grew up in WA too and my parents had a boat, we practically lived off seafood. I'm on the east coast now and so many fish here have different names, it's very confusing. I need to see the fish whole to know what i'm buying. And I have to pay for it so don't eat nearly as much as I'd like.

    I miss WA seafood
