So salmon isn't the favorite fish for some people.

What is?

When you buy and cook your own fish, what's your favorite, and how do you prepare it?

(not talking about fish you catch and eat here - this is about store bought fish)

How do you season it?
How do you cook it? Grill? Bake? Fry? Smoke?
Marinate?

What do the grape leaves add? What kind of flavor?

My favorite is tilapia. Seasoned with butter, lemon, pepper, and flour then fried to a golden brown. Eat on tortilla with cabbage pico de gallo and some homemade hot sauce and a side of rice.

it is not definable ,must try it! Tastes like stuffed grape leaves ,sourish and unripe grape.fishlovers must try it
 
Some of the best fish I ever had was trout fresh from the lake. Sliced it open, inserted a few lemon wedges, a few pats of butter, some basic seasoning, wrapped in foil and thrown right on the grill. Delish.

Haddock finely breaded and fried or in butter sauce.
Grilled Swordfish or tuna.
Any of the above as Sashimi.

Yummm...grilled tuna is divine. If it's fresh and never been frozen that is.

What do you do to your tuna before you grill it?

That depends. Sometimes olive oil marinade of rosemary and a dash of garlic and marjoram and maybe some chopped olives.
But I like it just seseme oil the seeds and wasabi. But I like it plain too and do that most often.
 
I've tried for years to catch fish that prepare themselves. Never seems to work out.
 
Thanks. I'll have to look for some the next time I'm out at the store.

You might be able to get it as a plant and grow it in the kitchen or garden. Like oregano or rosemary it likes warm dry places. I like it in Italien and Southern French food or fresh, a little in a salad
 
How do you prepare it? Any seasoning? Marinate?

Sorry....here's the best way (IMHO)

Soy Sauce, Lemon Juice, Garlic as a marinade. Use some Olive Oil to keep the steaks from sticking. Med/Hot coals for about 3-4 min per side.

Eat like they're going out of style.

We like a nice grilled squash and peppers with it and a bit of long grain brown rice.

BINGO!!!

The fresher the better.
 
Hawaiian Poke.

Yellowfin tuna with sesame oil, green onions, soy sauce and sesame seeds with a little hot pepper. Leave the fish raw and just mix everything up.
 
Tuna just barely seared with the with center still pretty much raw. Served with a teriyaki dipping sauce.


I want to do a head to tail (nose to fin?) fish on the grill or maybe in the smoker this year. Any recommendations of which fish would be best?
