Actually, one of the things I was told is that if a fish tastes/smells fishy, it is actually old/no good. It has taken me eons to try things like salmon and other "non fishy" fish dishes. And I've learned that the really good stuff doesn't taste fishy...gee, those folks weren't fudging me after all (grin). Being a good ole Midwestern gal, I want meat, red preferably! Smile
Although I mostly choose those two now, I've also had cod which is quite delicate in flavor.
Don't know if ya'll have Trader Joe's around your area ... it is my favoritist place to shop! They have a series of sauces and tapenades that make great, simple, easy-to-fix dishes. Toss the main dish (fish, chicken, shrimp) in a baking pan, pour one of the sauces on top, bake and voila, a meal fit for a queen!
I've tried many of the sauces and have two extra favorites: the Mojito sauce and the Curry sauce.
Another simple dish is to soften a block of cream cheese (if you can eat dairy, of course!) and shape it into a round. Pour a jar of red pepper or olive tapenade on top, surround with yummy crackers and your guests (or you!) have a very tasty treat that is less than $8 US including all the components. Here in Chicago, the sauces are less than $3 US per jar. It serves quite a few people and is always a hit when we take it to our church potlucks or have company.
And I like easy, even though I'm actually a good cook!
Love and light, hugs and blessings
