Haddock (makes the best fish in batter - well, in my opinion), cod (I buy frozen filets and fry them with a 'small amount' of butter Smile - very healthy), sardines (tinned). Dover sole when I can get it, and I'd like some plaice but can't find it 'any place' here. Occasionally lemon sole, but it's a bit sad really (again in my opinion). Not a great fish-eater because SWMBO is allergic to it so it's a kind of indulgence and means too much messing about in the kitchen. Most fish is quite good in batter Grin
Tinned sardines, though; wasn't Elvis Presley supposed to have grown 'a bit overweight' from eating fried sardine sandwiches? I think they are made with peanut butter and then fried in butter.
Yes, fish is the healthy option. Take cod-liver oil capsules insteadWink

Yes. I second Pete. I just love haddock whether sauted in butter, fried in batter or in fish pie. A most tasty fish with a lovely texture.

Dead only. Over here, the very best fish in batter is Halibut, - very tasty, - way more taste than Haddock. A lot of Salmon and Trout too.

Hi Ian,

Tinned Tuna, quick easy and quite filling and not too expensive - the oil it flavours the salad and I love fresh ground black pepper.

Improved diets - always going to be a life time challenge What works for me is porridge ( microwaved with water, you get used to it) for breakfast; Lunch and Evening meal - Small 22cm dinner/side plates, getting portion size down is quite a challenge but smaller plate help a treat. Avoiding carb binges works for me, and having a non alcoholic drink after a meal helps stop me wolfing down more than i need.

Fruit, Banannas etc keep you going between meals, or rice cakes, coleslaw on crackers.

Oldy enough core exercises also seem to help, cross trainer/situps etc anything that tones the midrift area make me more conscious of what i eat. If only i could keep up all these good intensions Wink

The other fish is tinned sardines/pilchards etc - again flavoursome fish to mix with salads.

Good luck with your best intensions, but the odd blow out is a necessary enjoyment to remind you to be good for the rest of the week.

Weekends usually mean at least one Prawn Vindaloo with piles of all the usual stuff.

Since I gave up working for a living, I've put on a stone and a half.

And I couldn't care less . . . !

Love fish, there's so much variety. I do a mean salmon risotto with asparagus, garden peas, garlic, white wine and loads of lemon. Sea bass, king prawns in chilli sauce with pasta, smoked haddock pie, and Willie is reminding me that we haven't had halibut in ages.
Oh and home-made fishcakes...

I have not had battered fish (cod or haddock) since last February. My wife will not eat Fish & Chips so I tend to choose them when visiting a pub for lunch with my mates after playing tennis. Because of COVID this has not been possible. Occasionally, I would call in a local F&S shop but again COVID makes that difficult.

However, I am fed seafood regularly including Salmon, Cod, Prawns, Lobster, Scallops, Cockles and Tuna Fish.

Don't get to eat much fish in house as the wife has a severe allergy to fish & seafood, although she loves fish it nearly killed her onceSad

Any type of white fish at least twice a week as well as swordfish steaks and squid etc, although cant stand any type of shellfish, tuna or salmon.

We eat seafood most of the time. Love it
Havent found any sea food I dont like. The youngest even loves a bit of grilled octopus.
Swordfish, Sea bream, Scallops are my favourites but even a lovely portion of cod from the chippy will do

If the EU is now blocking seafood imports, we will have to eat more,
