What is the best fish to eat? If I could pick any fish, I would eat red snapper. What fish would it be for you?

Flounder all day.

Crappie is good but IMO can't compare to many salt water fish. I agree on the red snapper! I had fried Mahi Mahi once that was by far the best fried fish I've ever had. Flounder is good too. Sheephead gets overlooked. It can be grilled, blackened baked or fried and good regardless of how it's cooked.


You get out of it what you put into it!

I think that's more of a texture thing than a taste thing. 2cents

I have tried to eat a lot of different fish, some with good success and other with far less tasting results. The younger me caught and cooked: Ladyfish, Hardheads, Bowfin and a few others. I thought about writing a cook book on how to not fix eatable fish and wish fish to avoid.
But the top 5 of the list are:
Salt water;
Snook
Yellow Tailed Snapper
Goliath Grouper (not Legal in the US)
Flounder
Mangrove Snapper

Fresh water:
Crappie
Walleye
Salmon
Sunfish ( got to be fillet able size, only spoon fish for the wife)
Snakehead

I question the world I live on reading some of these answers I see.

Freshly caught tuna. A sashimi snack on the boat as you are going in. Then a steak of same tuna covered with sesame seeds and extremely rare.

There's nothing more filling than a poached mudcat with the skin on. A little of that will make you belch all day and night.
