Re: What fish should I try?

oh, woops, Australia, hmm, no idea whether swordfish swim over there. No boundaries, funny how fish are so localized. Australia must have some fabulous fish, and very fresh too. The South Pacific.

I have an allegy to cats, wish I didn't, really want it to stop, so hoped to get a pointer or two, but I think our allegies might be different. My brother told me somethng funny, that personalities within people with multiple personality disorder have different allergies, I wonder how that works.

Re: What fish should I try?

Try salmon, cod, sea bream, trout or a mixed fish pie.  Do something special with it herb crumb toppings or baked with lemon and dill serve with a green salad or rice make it look good and you will probally like what you eat.

I personally know how you feel my hubby and I also have food intolerences and it can be quite difficult when trying to reintroduce new foods but try it and let us know!!!

Re: What fish should I try?

The less 'fishy' tasting fish are the ones who most resemble steak, like tuna, shark, swordfish, mahi mahi, etc. Personally, I love salmon, but maybe that is a fishy tasting fish. Make sure to get a good piece of fish, that it's very fresh.

Also, you just might like catfish. You can fry it up for now. Not *as* healthy, but it might introduce you to some fish in a way you'll enjoy.

And, this might be a bit bold, but perhaps you could get a sampler plate of sushi. That would have a lot of different things in it, though maybe it's not quite considered "fish." If you could get a nice sample of different cooked fish somehow, you'd be better able to decide what it is you like.

To whitedog, schizophrenia has actually be linked to food allergies. Some thing is causes the disease entirely. Refer to the "beet woman" of the early 60's and you'll see what I'm saying.

Good luck and let us know what you decide!

Re: What fish should I try?

in my experience i would try to stay away from exotic game fish ie marlin tuna sword mahi mahi and kingfish yes they are meaty fish but you could be subjecting yourself to histamine toxicity.they just go right through me if you now what i mean
try halibut turbot north atlantic cod pollack coley hoki hake haddock hoki, flat fish plaice dover lemon sole . there is a new fish farmed in vietnam called pangasius or cat fish,Tesco has marketing this as cob fish,cooks and eats like cod and haddock white fish but cheaper and sustainable.dont buy orange roughy this is a deep water fish that takes up to 20 yrs to mature and is now banned. go for orange tilapia instead,its plentyfull and now farmed inland its a bland white freshwater fish rather like cod texture and takes plenty of spices and seasoning.
try to stay away from oily fish to start with but try small amounts and see how you get on. seabass is farmed and plentyfull you would do no wrong if you just oven baked a couple of fillets with salt peppr and lemon, keep it simple and enjoy.
my favorite fish of all time has to be silver pomfret or butter fish tandoory style.heaven.

Re: What fish should I try?

If done correctly most fish prepared for you at restaurants are the way that I would go. My hubby and I usually share each others dish, he takes 1/2 of mine and I his kind of thing. But if you are going to try cooking it on your own maybe start with simple, like sole, pink salmon is quite nice and not that " fishy ", tilapia is awesome and I made flounder the other week, I loved it! I love halibut too, especially the cheeks  yummy  I hope you enjoy your experience.

Re: What fish should I try?

yes i agree halibut and cod cheeks are also fantastic and utilises all of the fish,  your fishmonger will know all about these alternative and resoursfull cuts.flounder, wytch sole megrim or torbay sole are another in expensive flat fish if you cant reach the price of dover or lemon sole. for fish pie why not ask your fish monger for pie mix off cuts, and salmon off cuts at a fraction of the price then you can spend more money on the smk haddock k,prawn or scampi peeled for the pie mmmmm yummy
