Fish For People Who Don’t Like Fish

What do you do if you are looking for meat alternatives but do not like fish? For those of you that don’t seem to like fish either because of its smell, texture or you simply had a bad experience in your past, here are a few ways to ‘dip your feet into the fish pool’ and enjoy the benefits of a heart-healthy meal.
Flounders are incredibly edible and can taste sweet. They also offer a delicate texture which should make it appealing and enticing for people who don’t really like fish that much and are looking forward to eating fish for the first time. They are the least fishy fish for a person who doesn’t like fish.
These are freshwater fish usually found in rivers, lakes, ponds and shallow streams. They are occasionally found in brackish water. As of 2002, the Tilapia was one of the most consumed fish in the United States because of its low price and relatively easy preparation. It is mild in taste, in fact it is a fish that tastes like chicken and has a texture like a chicken, which must be why they are often referred to as sea chicken. They are usually very lean and don’t taste much like your average fish, so it is the ideal fish for someone who doesn’t really like fish.
They can be processed into skinless, boneless fillets depending on the size and are very low in saturated fat, sodium and mercury but a very a good source of protein. They are also known for their abundance of micro-nutrients like vitamins B12, selenium and phosphorus.
The cod fish is another amazing fish for those that can’t stand the idea of eating fish. They are of two species: the Atlantic cod, which is usually found in colder waters and deeper sea regions throughout the North Atlantic, and the Pacific cod, found in the eastern and western regions of the northern Pacific. Cod is quite a common food with a very mild flavor and a dense white flesh, which suits it for people that hate fish. You might’ve heard of cod liver oil, which is often used as a supplement for vitamins A, D, and E. It is also a good source of omega 3 acids, which are essential to heart health. It may interest you to know that the Atlantic cod is one of the major ingredients in making fish and chips alongside haddock and plaice.
