Salmon once a week and tuna now and then. I love swordfish and mackerel as well but don't eat it much any more. I love all fish except catfish. I live in the country and catfish fries are common place but I just can't!

I was in Paris recently and the fish markets in the small towns around the city had everything under the sun.
That reminds me I think I will make bacalao a la Vizcaina this weeked

DH and I would love to incorporate fish into our diets because its good for you etc- but we don't like anything too "fishy" and I don't know how to cook it or what to serve with it etc. Plus, I am a gravy person - I like gravy on everything.

Here in The PNW you can find an abundance of fresh fish,we go to the saturday market and buy fresh oysters and clams, or fresh tuna, and when we go to the coast we buy it right of the boats, they will even cut it gut and fillet it for you. and we know several people who fish so we are always getting fesh fish from there endeavors.

I also eat fish at least twice a week. Primarily salmon and halibut, but also a lot of king, snow, and dungenous crab. I usually catch between 200 and 250 pounds of salmon every year, smoke approximately two-thirds of it, and send around 50 pounds to friends and family as gifts. The rest I eat myself and it barely lasts until next salmon season. Most years I catch between 100 and 150 pounds of halibut, but there have been a few years where I've actually had to buy halibut (something I don't like to do).

I usually wait until crab is on sale at one of our local Asian markets in Anchorage, then I buy them live. Crab is much sweeter before it is frozen.

I'm particularly fond of smoked salmon dip, or adding some smoked halibut pieces to my salads.

Hubby and I both don't care that much for eating fish. I like shellfish though. We love to fish and do catch and release but almost never eat fish. Of course we live at a fish hatchery so it is kind of like working at McDonalds and not wanting to eat their food because you are there all the time.

Default Good fresh fish--where???

I love good fresh fish, but within the last year or two, it has become harder to find in this area (Philadelphia). I have too frequently bought fish that I had to throw out because it was so fishy. This even happened at Whole Foods Market ($20/lb Salmon). Also, frozen fish at Trader Joes is often too fishy--wonder if its getting thawed and refrozen. I know others in this area are having the same problem--so it's not just me. I do love good fish, but am afraid to buy it at present.

Lived in landlocked Utah for 3 years...and ate fish about once a week.

Now we live on Long Island in NY and have upped that to 3-4 times a week just based on the awesome selection here.
