I am not a seafood lover. In fact, I hate it. Always have. The overly fishy taste and funky texture always freak me out. Salmon i find especially horrid.
But one of this year’s resolutions is rating more fish. So I’ve taken to eating tuna fish once a month for lunch. Yuck!
Last night the family wanted to hit a local seafood haunt. Not wanting to spoil plans, I agreed.
The shrimp and grits dish caught my eye. But thanks to the high carb count of grits, I decided to find the most mild fish on the menu.
With my waiter’s help, that turned out to be a fish called Link. A lean fish, it has a firm texture and a slight lemony taste. Topped with tomatoes, jalapeños and onions, it was amazing.
No freak out happened. My only problem with the fish was I wanted more.
Now I don’t think this makes me a lover of seafood. But it does give me encouragement to keep trying more mild flavored fish.
Who knows? Maybe same time next year I’ll be eating salmon.
