How to Get rid of fishy taste from fish???

August 4, 2009 11:05am CST
I have a store bought frozen fish (usually tilapia) and last time I had it, it had a really fishy taste. I placed multiple fish in a small bag. I don't want to waste it, but would like some solutions to take away the fishyness (its not spoiled). Also if you have any good recommentions of how I should prepare it, that would be great. Thank you alot.

I've heard that soaking it in some lemon juice helps.

Usually either ginger, lemon or garlic will do. But here's another tradition in my family, soak it in tamarind juice !

Hello! To me the best way to get rid of the "fishy" taste is to first rinse the fish off in cold water then let it soak in buttermilk. I make a breading using all purpose flour with pepper, garlic, and season salt. This works with all type of fish. can soak it in lemon juice, that works too. I have an awesome recipe for tilapia. To be honest with you I've never been crazy about fish but this recipe I enjoy very much. My boyfriend and family loves it... HUDSON'S BAKED TILAPIA with DILL SAUCE "Baked tilapia seasoned with Cajun and citrus served with a creamy sauce of fresh dill and lemon" INGREDIENTS: 4 (4 ounces) fillets tilapia salt and pepper to taste 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning, or to taste 1 lemon, thinly sliced 1/4 cup mayonnaise 1/2 cup sour cream 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice 2 tablespoon chopped fresh dill DIRECTIONS: 1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish. 2. Season the tilapia fillets with salt, pepper and cajun seasoning on both sides. Arrange the seasoned fillets in a single layer in the baking dish. Place a layer of lemon slices over the fish fillets. I usually use about 2 slices on each piece so that it covers most of the surface of the fish. 3. Bake uncovered for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until fish flakes easily with a fork. 4. While the fish is baking, mix together the mayonnaise, sour cream, garlic powder, lemon juice and dill in a small bowl. Serve with tilapia. ENJOY! I HOPE YOU LIKE IT! :)

what i just do and use to get rid of that fishy taste on fish is to put some ginger... example, before frying it, i just fry the ginger first so that its taste will mix to the oil and thus it reduce that fishy smell and taste on fish...
