Readers Respond: What Kind Of Fish Tastes Best?

Responses: 15

From the article: Best Tasting Fish
Many kinds of fish taste good when cooked in a variety of ways. But which kind of fish tastes best?

Perch

Freshwater perch fillet, dipped in an egg white and almond milk wash, dusted with seasoned flour and corn meal with paprika, cayenne, onion powder, salt and pepper. Next is walley/crappie/sunfish.
—Guest Dave

Walleye!

Too many people have not had the opportunity to eat walleye, which is probably why they are not as popular as crappie and blue gill. Walleye meat is sweet, flaky and very easy to fillet. I cook it several ways including in tin foil with butter, lemon pepper and slices of lemon. It is also really good fried in either a beer batter or crumb breading for baking. Just talking about it makes me want to move back to the north just so I can have regular access to them again! I'm about catfished out!

So tough to chose just 1

I enjoy almost all fish, but a grilled sea bass is the best I have ever made...Salmon and halibut would be a close 2nd, then Eagle Lake trout.... It is it's own species from Eagle Lake in California. Lake Tahoe trout is great, I have caught Big rainbows, German browns, and Mackinaw off of my pier there for years. Everything was smoked / grilled and tasted GREAT! Next choice is fresh Yellowfin tuna in San Diego. Lived there fir years, and the tuna is great when fresh.

Crappie for the Win

For me, there is nothing better than fried crappie filets. Best tasting fish out there.
—Guest Josh

best tasting freshwater fish

without question--fresh walleye pan fried or battered and deep fried
—Guest jon

Walleye

My favorite is walleye only because I don't have to catch quite as many of them to make a meal!
—Guest Tom B

BEST TASTING FISH

CRAPPIE FIXED WITH A CAREFULLY PREPARED BATTER OF FLOUR, CORN MEAL, SALT, PEPPER AND BEER.. IT WILL NEVER BE ANY BETTER
—Guest TOM WOODS

Crappie!

Several years ago a group of fishermen met in Tennessee and had a fish fry. I brought frozen crappie filets from Georgia. Another fisherman brought frozen walleye filets from Michigan. All the filets were cooked in the same fryers and everyone there agreed the crappie were much better!
