Frisky Eats: 10 Fish Recipes For Potential Pescatarians

I do a lot of cooking at home, but as a creature of habit, I have to sometimes push myself to try new things. In an effort to do just that, and cut back on my chicken and red meat intake, I’ve been trying my hand at cooking a lot more fish. Salmon has always been my go-to and I continue to love it’s rich flavor and meatier texture, but there are, quite literally, many other fish in the sea. Here are 10 fish recipes to try if you, like me, are indulging your inner pescatarian.

Frisky Eats: 10 Fresh Ways To Cook Fish

I love to cook and will eagerly tackle pretty much any recipe, but for some reason I’ve always had a bit of a mental block about cooking fish. Few ingredients intimidate me more than a salmon filet or thick tuna steak (Am I going to cook it right? What herbs should I use? Do I bake it or broil it or grill it? Heelllp!). This spring and summer I’m challenging myself to cook more fish because it’s healthy, light, and delicious. Yep, my fish fear ends now. The first step: inspiration. Let’s take a gander at 10 delicious fish recipes, shall we?

"Come on ladies!"

In 2005, I went to grad school in England, and around then, the biggest song on the UK charts was the Crazy Frog ringtone. Not even kidding — a fucking terrible ringtone was the number one track in the country. So it’s no surprise that a song by a British man who refers to himself as £1 Fish Man released a highly successful track called (drumroll) “One Pound Fish.” It is, as you might imagine, rather terrible. But the video does offer a vast array of trouts and salmons for ogling. It has more than eight million views on it so far. And in case the music industry was wondering why it’s been in a horrible death spiral for the last few years — this guy is signed to Warner Music Group. [YouTube]

Testicle-Eating Fish Species Caught In Illinois Lake

When biologists say the pacu fish eats nuts, they may be correct in more ways than one.

The pacu, a toothy fish that can weigh up to 55 pounds, has been spotted in Lake Lou Yaeger in Illinois, KSDK reports.

Responding to a report that a fisherman had reeled in a piranha on June 7, lake superintendent Jim Caldwell brought the fish to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, where it was identified as a pacu. Some reports say another pacu was seen a couple of weeks later.

Caldwell said he is still swimming in the lake nearly every day. Pacus primarily eat nuts, aquatic vegetation and snails, he told KDSK, and pose no real threat to humans.

Residents of Papua New Guinea may beg to differ. There, according to British fisherman Jeremy Wade, the pacu is known as the “ball cutter.” In 2011, Wade said locals informed him that two fisherman had died from blood loss after something in the water had bitten off their testicles, according to the Metro.  Read more …

Lady Fish Love The Mustache

Apparently, we aren’t the only species that has a bizarre fascination with the furry friend of the upper lip. It seems that female Mexican molly fish prefer a mate with a mustache. Only some male members of the swimmers sport the whiskers, and a recent study done by German biologist Ingo Schlupp shows that these guys are getting lucky. Schlupp paired up lady mollies with males sporting various mustache lengths, including males sans facial hair, to see how long the ladies stayed interested in their suitor. The study also placed tanks full of females in front of a television showcasing male fish with different amounts of fuzz. Both experiments showed that female mollies were looking for a man with a mustache. But why? Keep reading »
