    Except for shellfish (mariscos), I never used to be a big fan of cooking/eating fish. But within the past few years, I've developed a real liking for it so that now, I eat fish at least 3-4 times a week.

    Supermarkets sells frozen fillets of various kinds of fish and they are a snap to prepare and taste great.

    After I defrost the fillet, I season it with one or more of the following ingredients and fry it in a nonstick pan with a little oil.

    soy sauce
    mirim
    kosher salt
    pepper
    sea kelp seasoning ( it's delicious)
    chopped basil
    onions

    Eating fish has reduced my intake of other meats and as a result I've lost a few pounds. It's also a better way to get those Omega-3's into your body and you don't have to buy those fish oil capsules.

    Only the vanilla variety... i.e. cod, tilapia. Most seafood just tastes so. damn. bad. I feel like I'm eating sea water flavored erasures.

    I like fish

    like it best battered and fried. I've made fried tilapia a few times...although not the best choice for a diet...because of the oil.

    but tilapia tastes very good naturally by itself it has a nice taste to it. I have cooked it with only a little butter and seasoning and it was delicious.

    I absolutely love fish - it is easily half my protein intake.

    My fave is frozen raw (sushi grade) salmon

    ... better than ice cream.

    Also, 10-15g of raw ahi tuna after workouts me in good shape.

    Fish is the diet if you would like to stay fit, especially more ripped.

    I love fish. My problem is that I don't really know how to cook it. I've steamed it and seared it, but i'd like to know how to cook it in other varieties, otherwise I just go for Sashimi for fish.

    I've never been a big fan of fish, but Bonefish Grill has made me a believer. It's all about how you cook it and season it. They even have a few recipes online. I haven't tried cooking it myself yet. I'm not a very good cook.

    I know this isn't the best but..........
    Thinly sliced potatoes layered on foil fish on top, a drizzle of olive oil salt pepper and a smidge of goat cheese.
    Wrap it up in the foil and throw on the BBQ for 45 minutes (potatoes down) on medium heat and chow down.
    It's one of my semi cheat meals...........LOVE!!

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidNot sure if any of you have a rice cooker. But what I like to do is take a fish fillet and throw it on top of the rice (inside the rice cooker) after the rice is done cooking and is basically set to keep the rice warm.

    In about twenty minutes either salmon or any type of white fish fillet I have floating on top is cooked to perfect and the juices of the fish drip down into the rice. The rice tastes better and the fish is flaky and cooked to perfect.

    Just a lil' home cooking tip 4 mah RJ bitchuz!


    I do a variation of that.
    I have a steamer basket that fits above the rice ( or Quinoa - even better) in my ricecooker, and I put frozen mixed veggies and the frozen fish fillet in the steamer basket

    Sushi anyone?

    I love that by my 2 favorite 24 hour fitness' in Portland ther eare Mio Sushi restaurants. So for a treat I time the end of my workout to coincide with the Mio Happy Hour when there are some cheap deals on really good rolls. Or at least have the teriaki salmon! Now there's some totally indulgent me time.

    I love fish...I could eat sushi every meal. Also, if you want to really lean up, eat nothing but fish for 2 weeks -- "The Fish Diet" works like a charm.

    I love em fishies. I've been doing them pan-seared, but recently discovered the low-temperature method. Put the fillet an oven set at only 200°F for 15-20 minutes. It is INSANE, so tender and creamy, the texture is like custard. Works well with salmon.

    I'm going to try that just because you're sexy, so it must work. icon_cool.gif

    When I was growing up, my dad always took us fishing. On the weekends, we would ski during the day and fish at night. lol So, I grew up eating a lot of catfish, bass, and crappie.

    My favorite is catfish, battered and fried with homemade tarter sauce and homemade hush puppies.

    I also like almost any seafood, but fresh water fish will always be my favorite, (except for trout - ugh!)
