    Not a huge fish fan, but I do like grouper, snapper, wahoo. I don't like it fried-needs to be grilled or baked. We had something in Alaska that was good, but I don't remember what it was. Not a fan of salmon but my younger son loves it so I make it for him.

    Love Haddock. Grouper. Red snapper
    Mainly white fillet. I can eat it grilled, lightly fried
    Then get in rare mood for cod fish and fries with malt vinegar and tarta sauce

    Barracuda is a nice meaty fish. When I go deep sea fishing in Aruba, all the boat captains fight for the barracuda. In the States, you don't eat barracuda because they are full of mercury. But in Aruba, the water is so clear and clean, you can eat the barracuda. If you ever see it on the menu, try it. Its really good.
    And when people say the fish is fishey, most of the time its because its not fresh. If you get fresh fish, it should never be fishey.

    Thanks, Bob! I think I may give it a try when I'm there in August.

    I love most fish. Mahi, tuna, and grouper are my favorite, not necessarily in that order. I like tuna raw or seared, but most others I prefer grilled. I thinking breading and deep frying takes away from fish, but it's the only way I will eat catfish. My husband's favorite way to eat fish is in ceviche.

    A favorite fish at home is rockfish, otherwise known as striped bass in some area. My hubby is going spear fishing for flounder this week. The best fish is fresh fish.

    I like salmon but my husband does not so I usually only have it if we are at a restaurant.
    The best trip is the next trip. Anxiously waiting to book something.

    Saltwater Blackfish and freshwater Walleye. Grilled or fried. When on Aruba I tend to go for grilled Wahoo

    I thought that you'd say "on a hook at the end of the line"

The catfish was fried and served whole ala Andrea's picture of the Red Snapper. I remember my grandmother taking a napkin and covering the fishes head. Said she loved the meal, but couldn't stand the catfish staring at her while she ate.
