I’m not much of a fish eater, because I’ve never liked the fishy taste that they have. I’ve always liked other seafood like crab, lobster, shrimp, and scallops, and I’ve liked shark and swordfish the few times I’ve had the opportunity to try them, but the more standard fish have never appealed to me.
But it was long ago that I formed this anti-fish bias, so yesterday I decided to give fish another try. Kim and I went out to the Blue Mountain Summit restaurant and I got salmon. I could smell the fishy smell from a mile away though, and I didn’t really like it. The waitress explained that salmon is probably the fishiest of the fish on the menu, which included flounder and haddock.
We watched some Emeril last night and he said that you shouldn’t really be able to detect that fishy smell as long as the fish is fresh enough. So, was my salmon just not very fresh? Which fish should I try if I want less of that fishy smell/taste?
