Tantrix, that looks amazing. I dont do Snapper as often as I'd like (not cheap in Tx!), but when I do I bake it with a parmesan crust and then a little lemon-garlic butter. So worth the coronary clogging goodness!

If you can get your hands on some fresh wild caught salmon you should give that a try. The difference between farm raised and wild salmon is amazing. My wife's favorite method is to wrap a serving size chunk of wild salmon in aluminum foil. Before you seal it up put a little salt and pepper on the fish then some thinly sliced sweet onions, a little bit of chopped dill, a squeeze of lemon juice and a thin slice of lemon, and top it all with a pat of butter. Seal the package up and bake it at 350 for 15-20 minutes. If you don't like that then you just don't like salmon.

What didn't you like about it?

Fish may not be for you, but I will try to walk you into something you will like or tell you that your not going to like fish.

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 admit, Tilapia isn't my first pick either (I'd rather Red Snapper, Catfish, etc) but I cook it differently too so it's probably a locale thing. If we can do anything down in South LA, it's cook, drink, and play music. Tilapia is no problem.

Took me a while to learn to like the taste of Salmon. I grew up on canned salmon turned into fish patties.

When I moved to Oregon to open a restaurant I tried some Pacific Salmon. Wow, what a difference. And the indian's smoked salmon, awesome stuff.

Worse. It came from Africa and it's native diet is hippopotamus poop. It is popular because it is farm raised on grains and food waste. Not raised on fish products like some other species.

Whitefish or lake perch. Both mild but very tasty.

Had some commercially breaded flounder tonight. Very good, not fishy at all.

If you don't like fish, then I suggest staying away from batter breading. I had some last week that wasn't good, and I like fish.

For lunch I would recommend whatever is fresh at the Monterey Bay Fish Grotto on Mount Washington. It is a bit pricy for dinner but not too bad for lunch. I had the trout there and it was very good.

Alternative would be either Benkovitz Seafood or Penn Avenue Fish Company in the Strip District for a Cod Sandwich. Both have some reasonably priced and tasty fish.

OP - Go large or go home: Chilean Sea Bass.......you'll swear it has butter for blood.
Even if you can get some not raised in some Chinese sewage plant, they still probably are not a good choice. But they are relatively tasteless, so I guess that is why they are selling like hotcakes.

There is an epidemic of mis-labeled fish in this country. This story is typical:

http://www.boston.com/business/galle...h_restaurants/

I read not too long ago that something like 70% of the stuff sold at Sushi restaurants in Los Angeles were found to be mislabeled.
