White fish is BLAND. What to do?

jerrys88 | Aug 4, 2010 05:01 AM

I've pretty much abandoned white fish (i.e. flounder or cod) because to me it is an almost completely tasteless protein, like tofu. That means it's pretty much just a conveyor for whatever flavor you can add to it. Last night I followed a recipe that called for drizzling it with extra-virgin olive oil, parsley, garlic, and grated lemon rind and baking it in a hot oven. It tasted like extra-virgin olive oil, parsely, garlic, and lemon and nothing else. Imagine mixing those 4 ingredients, heating them up and eating them. Not a memorable meal.

So, what to do with white fish to make them delicious? Any suggestions? Nothing that calls for half a stick of butter please!
