My husband and I have both had gastric bypass surgery, and while we're not the ideal post-op rule followers, we do try. The one food that's perfect for us is fish. It also happens to be one food that neither of us care for so it's not something I ever make.
The day after Thanksgiving, our whole family went out for lunch to a seafood restaurant. The only non-seafood items on the menu were chicken fried steak and chicken fingers. I don't know about you, but post-Thanksgiving I was a bloated mess and eating fried anything just wasn't going to happen. I decided to be brave and ordered the grilled Tilapia.
I've been told that Tilapia is one of the least fishy-tasting fishes one can choose, but I wasn't optimistic. You see, I loathe seafood. Like dry-heaving-at-the-thought-of-it loathing. I was prepared to choke down a few bites and call it even. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that not only was the Tilapia moist and tender, it was also delicious. There was no fishy taste whatsoever and it was seasoned perfectly. I ended up eating almost half of the large portion I was served and felt great. (I also got that bonus smug feeling for eating something healthy while the rest of the family gorged themselves on fried shrimp and catfish.)
Now that I know there's at least one seafood item I actually enjoy, I'm anxious to add fish to my regular menu rotation. Can you recommend any other varieties of non-fishy fishy that I should try? How about preparation? Give me all of your piscis knowlegde, fellow Lushes.
