I don't eat any fish - never really have. The idea of eating fish kind of disgusts me. It's hard to delineate exactly why that is, but I think it partially has to do with the fact that when fish is cooking it does not create a pleasant aroma. I would never walk into the house of someone cooking fish and think "mmm, that is going to be delicious" the way I would of someone roasting a turkey or grilling a burger.
The few times I've tried fish I didn't think it was bad, per se, but I couldn't mentally get over what I was eating so I just ate really fast and tried not to think about it.
I realize, however, that not eating any fish at all isn't the healthiest diet, and I really want to start incorporating it into my weekly menu. So I'm looking for suggestions of which types of fish to start with (the least fishy-tasting most palatable to a meat-lover type of fish) and any recipes you have that go along with said fish.
