Considering going Pescatarian from Vegetarian

New / OtherAuntHilda

So I have always been a vegetarian as my parents (Indian) never fed me meat for religious reasons. I started eating eggs ~15 years back and it is part of my diet since then. I am now considering eating fish but not sure where to start. The reason being my wife used to eat fish and she stopped eating after marriage because of me. I want to return the favor.

Question: What fish should I start with so I don't feel disgusted with the taste/smell? Any suggestions welcome.

Thank you!

    You can't afford salmon with that TC. Better stay as vegetarian.

      Well, my TC might be a quarter of your TC but we both breathe the same air and share the same sky so stop swinging your "higher TC" shit here.

    Chilean Sea Bass (Costco sells it frozen) will be light and buttery with a mild/delicate flavor. No strong fish smell/taste. Make sure, whatever you get, that it is wild caught fish and not farmed.

    I would Go with some flavor less white fish, as a stew. This wont be noticed. G luck.

    Why are you forcing yourself? Let her eat fish and you eat seaweed. Everyone wins!

    Tilapia smothered in blackening seasoning mix. Also, most fresh fish doesn’t really have a smell, if it stinks it’s not edible.

    I love salmon, but it’s pretty strongly flavored, so might not be a good first fish. Agree that a white fish of some kind might be a good entry point. Cod, haddock, and mahi might work.

    I literally did this a few weeks ago. Although I had eaten white meat before and thought fish would be better.

    I chose salmon. I liked it more than chicken. Pretty expensive tho at restaurants tho

    Why do you rather eat fish than meat? Try chicken:)

      Don't want to start with meat. Not ready for it. Thanks though.

    Make sure you cook it with enough spice and turmeric to kill the smell. Indian sweet water fishes have stronger smell. So i suggest you start with salmon, cod or even tilapia.

    I had been a vegetarian all my life. I started eating chicken few years back. I've tried eating fish and smell has just been very strong for me. The only way I can eat it is in sushi (love it since it is 80% rice) or grilled fish which takes away the smell as well.

    Vegetarian food is the future. Healthy for you and sustainable for earth.
    Don't be a part of old practices which started way back due to ice age in Europe.
