Fish...

As you know from reading Curt's Facebook status, I made fish! Yes, you read that right, I, Me Mandy, made FISH!!!!!!!!!!!! I do NOT like fish! I can't even eat fish sticks, yuck! Makes my stomach churn just thinking about it! lol
Anyways... I am seeing TONS of fish (more like hole in the wall) restaurants (But I am sure those hole in the wall ones are the BEST)! And signs for FRESH FISH HERE, and lots of fresh fish at the store! Every week the grocery ad has about 6 different types of fresh fish on sale. So I figured I better bite the bullet and grow up and try it! My mom says she makes it by getting a big pot of boiling water, then throws the fish in the pot and when it comes to the top, it's done. I guess it is called poor man's lobster (just without the lobster. hee hee hee. Sorry, I am tired!) She told me that Tilapia (did I spell it right? lol) is not fishy. So I go to the store and see it and think, oh, what a good wife I'll be, cooking fish for Curt. (This is the last nite that he will be here since he was leaving for Mexico) I was also hoping and praying I didn't kill him or give him stomach cramps from making it! I was going to do it my parents way, but saw a recipe on the back of the package to bread it in flour and garlic salt. I was like, oh, that's sounds good. So I battered it up, put it in my cast iron skillet and prayed that it would turn out alright! (and that Curt would like it! :oP) The girls GOBBLED it all up and Curt thought he was in heaven! He wasn't sure if I was really Mandy who he married! ;o) I SWORE I would NEVER fix fish, other than tuna sandwiches or fish sticks. ;o) So... here's my prob now. I need to know what kind of fish you recommend and why? I don't want anything that tastes too fishy, yuck... Also any idea for recipes for fish? I do need to go through my cook books and look for some, but I like to see what you all like!
I DID TRY a little bit of fish! I ate it all, but didn't get anymore! lol ;o) I don't think I like the texture maybe? I dunno...
