    Default Non fishy fish :-P

    Thanks for all the ideas! I am in WA
    And yes I was buying from the supermarket as I'm not really close to any fresh fish markets that's probably why they are extra fishy! Will need to head to a fresh market to try some of your suggestions. @Pearlygirl I'm allergic to shellfish

    Where in WA are you? Drovers Fish Markets in Joondalup are really good, there is also a good one at Innaloo apparently.

    We have a boat so eat a lot of fish, mainly Dhufish, Mackeral.

    King George Whiting is nice and not too fishy xx

    I used to work at the one in Innaloo many many years ago. It was amazing.

    I'm not near any fish markets so really only have supermarket fish to go off (so don't get it often, I usually only eat fish when we are away, from decent takeout joints). But I love whiting and Barra the best. Just enough flavour but not overpowering. And if cooked well, can be very melt-in-your-mouth.

    When I was in WA our IGA had awesome fish - different suppliers to the big 2 supermarket.

    I agree that snapper should be mild, so don't be afraid to try that again. DD's old daycare owner's husband used to catch dhufish and the kids loved that - it's pretty pricey though if you're buying it. Flathead has good flavour but can be a little more textured (I find a fish which breaks into bigger chunks better for the kids).

    I also used to get a really nice bream in WA, nothing like the bream over east. So if it's local, give it a try.

    Try salmon as well. I pan fry with the skin on, then peel the skin off and remove the brown blood line. Then separate into its chunks. My fussy eater started eating it when I told him it was pink chicken (as he'd started eating chicken by that time).

    I don't really like fish, but wanted DS to try it so I bought some barramundi filets from Coles or Woolies (frozen).

    On the odd occasion we have it fresh, we get rockling from the fish monger. It's very very mild.
