Does Salmon Filet taste really fishy?

I despise canned salmon, but I've heard salmon filet is really good. For those who have tried it, does it have a really fishy taste? I'd like to branch out and eat more seafood, but I just can't stand fishy.

It's definately less fishy than canned salmon. I say if you want to try it, just get one serving from the fish counter and give it a shot.

Tilapia is really mild tasting, if you've never tried that.

I am with you, I can't stand fishy taste. I have never found a fish that doesn't have that fishy taste to it. I have tried lots of different kinds too. My husband loves fish and orders it every time we go out, I always try a little taste to see, but it all tastes fishy to me, including salmon. But just to show that I am wierd, I do eat canned tuna. But fresh tuna gags me.

I have wanted to do the same thing and increase the fish in my diet but I just can't get past the taste. And canned tuna is not safe to eat too often because of the mercury content.

Good Luck to you I hope you can find one that suits you.

I recently added salmon in my diet. I had never tried it before because I just figured I did not like it. It is a little fishy but not too fishy. I found I really like it. If you are looking for a fish that is not fishy, try Mahi Mahi on the grill with a little butter and garlic. It is delicious. It is the only fish my DD eats. She says it tastes like chicken.

There are many factors too into what MAKES it taste fishy - how fresh it is, how it is prepared, what KIND of salmon it is -

To me, you cannot beat a very fresh King salmon filet. It's not fishy and it's delicious. OTOH, a farm-raised, frozen & defrosted filet is NOT something I'm very fond of.

You might be best off to try it in a restaurant first and see if you like it. Living where you do, it may be difficult to get a really fresh piece of fish!

Sigh, my mother, who is L-Cing with me, is the same way about fish (except canned tuna), yet she wants to eat more fish. She has entrusted to me the task of finding, and cooking, fish that she will like. Grrrr! I do not have much experience with fish, whether it be eating or cooking it. Well, I do adore sushi!

Hey, I remember that if you cook a whole fresh fish covered in rock salt, the salt will absorb all the fishiness! I think I got that from Dana Carpender's 500 LC recipes cookbook.

Halibut is pretty non-fishy, too. And, yes, the fresher it is, the less fishy it is ... just not to my mother!

If you are looking for the BENEFITS of eating fish WITHOUT eating fish - why not take a good fish oil capsule? I buy mine at Costco because they are highly rated and I take one every day, whether or not I'm eating FISHY fish!

It'd be like me eating earthworms because they're so high in protein. YUCK! Not going there! So I substitute another form of good protein - like Prime Rib! LOL!
