  • Let's talk fish



    As my friend Grok says, "fish good!"


    Here's the problem:

    Most of the fish I see being discussed are cold water fish like cod and salmon.


    As I've said before, I live in the Caribbean...what's a boy to do when the local fare is Mahi-Mahi and Wahoo? Are these fish incompatible with the PB? Are they especially high in heavy metal content?

      Wow, I'm so jealous that you live in the Caribbean!


      What sort of fish is good to eat from the supermarket? I know we should farmed salmon but it's pretty much the only thing I can get here. What about cod?

        I think all fish provide an excellent source of Omega 3, in more or less amounts. So eat all the fish you can muster and don't worry if it's not cold water fish.


        Can't say anything about heavy metal content though... your local health department should be able to provide some answer to that. I hope.

          I eat MahiMahi few times a week. It's great!

            Supermarket fish depends on where you live. Our supermarkets have pretty much anything local...which is a lot considering this is St. Croix. But what I'm interested in is the fishing charter guys. You know what they bring in is not farmed and they sell you a lb or 2 for 5 bucks.


            Talk about fresh fish...

              Hey JohnOTD, I was searching this site for smart fuels, and lo and behold look what I found.

              Just be careful about that mercury content - shame how we humans pollute our food sources.

                Think about how high they are on the food chain... the higher the "worse" they are as far as pollutants.

                  I was thinking of moving to St. Martin (French side) to find a hotel job, but that is truly up in the air at the moment.


                  I don't really know if mackerel is a cold water fish or not, but if you can find some nice thin skin smaller fish, slit the skin (2 or 3 times), butter them up with coconut oil, and then throw them on the grill or under the broiler for 5 minutes each side, and YUM!

                  Once you learn that you create your own reality and that you are fully responsible for your life, you can begin to see the world as it is and then you realize the limitless possibilities.

                    Generally the oilier a fish is, the colder its home-waters, as the oils act as antifreeze

                      Only sardines and salmon for me from now on but what with my badass spice cupboard I think I will manage. Although nowhere near as bad as vegetable oils, fish oil in fish is susceptible to oxidation so I advocate baking and streaming as cooking approaches and the use of copious amounts of polyphenolic spices and coconut oil.

                      Stabbing conventional wisdom in its face.

                        I usually wrap fish together with butter and vegetables in tinfoil and put it in the oven for a while. Keeps all the juices in place and it's perfect for sauce.


                        When I was a kid we had fish 3 - 4 times a week. At least. I grew up at 70 degrees north in a small fisherman's village.

                          So what about fresh water fish? I live in the Midwest US and have access to all kinds of fresh water species. Anything wrong with bluegill, crappie, and largemouth bass?

                            They are all edible I presume, just watch out for local pollutants, heavy metals and parasites.
