Need advice on trying fish to eat for the first time

Long story short, right now I"m 33 years old but when I was about 10 years old my family was on vacation at the beach, I tried some crab and came a little too close to dying for comfort. After that I never ate anything that swimmed except gator.

Wellllll turns out as of this week (allergist) I'm no longer allergic, so Im trying to figure out what would be a good kinda fish or seafood or whatever to try.

I know i always hear people eating Cod, but I'm looking for ideas, something that's generally very good.

Anchovies, kippered Herring, Lox and tuna in a can would be a good start. I don't care for much else in the line of fish. Oh, yeah, fish and chips would be good. I think that's cod usually in a good restaurant.

Orange roughy is a good white fish, swordfish or tuna is also good but its a darker meat.

Might not have been the crab; it could have been the restaurant that served it to you.

Just so you know, any WHITE COLORED fish flesh that comes from a FISH WITH SCALES contains no purines, and is very good for inveterate meat-eaters to ingest and give their digestive systems a break for awhile by allowing their bodies to detox.

Personally, I don't eat a lot of meat; and I avoid certain vegetables (like potatoes). I consider the popular national diet to be absolutely poisonous! (Looks like the Mosaic dietary laws weren't so far off after all - Doesn't it.)

Time to embrace your fears, go have a giant platter of sushi.

Its kind of like saying I can now eat meat--what meat should I try?

Too many choices to give you a good reply.

Nobody does fresh fish better than the Japanese. Sushi is subtle, delicate, and extremely delicious. The first time you try it your preconception about raw fish will forever be erased.

Try a meaty fish like swordfish or tuna grilled with some minimal seasoning--its like eating a steak!

I take an inexpensive white fish like Tilapia and slowly braise it in butter. Decadent and easy to do.

Fried fish is good too...but often overcooked thin pieces of fish that don't do the dish justice.

Try some nice Salmon Lox (cured salmon) with some capers and lemon on a bagel with cream cheese.

Try some of the better canned tuna in olive oil on a salad with some calamatta olives and a fresh tomato from the garden with a light vinagrette and some crusty bread.

This, though I hate canned tuna and lox with a passion.

Forget all that "girlie" fish like sushi and lox.
Eat some fried catfish.

He didn't say he was Scandinavian. He didn't say that Grandma insisted you have some at Christmas dinner. He didn't say that I hated it when........I mean he hated it....oh, never mind.

Don't do lutefisk. Not even if Grandma insists.

Sea Bass, Halibut, Walleye are all mild and very good.
For a first time fish eater, I wouldn't be eating anchovies, sardines, kippers, mackeral, bluefish- all very oily and strong; not a good starting point.

This is a great list
Halibut cheeks
Sea bass in a lemon,pine nut and basil rub
Beer battered Walleye is the acceptable crack cocaine

I'm not one for much of any seafood. With that said, PERCH is an excellent place to start imo. A few other that have already been listed i enjoy every once in a while. Most though, i wouldn't touch. But to each their own... good luck. New foods are always fun!

Before you can lead, you must refuse to follow

Fresh Perch is really good. A can of Tuna would be the easiest. I eat it with Mayo.

Anything that comes out of the sea is great! To start I would go with something mild like halibut or tilapia. Just go to a nicer restraunt that will do a good job of cooking it. Getting it cooked right is the most important part! Enjoy!
