See if your store carries Sea Cuisine Honey Chipotle Salmon in the frozen food section. It is amazing and delicious. I buy about 8 packages per month. I like mine with a little lemon juice on it and it is awesome!
I don't know if this is an option but try to find a store with a fresh fish counter and talk to them. Like most people have suggested below, most white meat fishes are the mildest in taste. My oldest daughter didn't like fish and that is where she started. I cook tilapia with a smidge of butter, garlic and onions or with a good cajun or blackened seasoning (if you like spicy).

I'm ready for a lifestyle change to better health. I have a long way to go but am ready to get there.

I am also not a fan of fish, especially ones that are very fish tasting. I agree with the other posts, tilapia is a good fish that is not too 'fishy'. Here is a link to one of my favorite tilapia recipes, Parmesean Tilapia, and its fairly healthy! Try it! http://mandymakingamessinthekitchen.wordpress.com/2013/05/19/parmesan-tilapia/

Try Sea Scallops, they have a slightly sweet taste They can be expensive, but I think they are well worth it, Each one has a small muscle on the side, ( looks like a small rectangular patch ) which comes right off with a paring knife. You can Grill, Pan Sear, Broil, or my favorite way is to Sprinkle then with bit of Crushed Ritz Crackers, a very slight drizzle of melted butter or margarine over the top. Spray pan or baking dish with a bit of Pam. Bake them about 15 min, in 350* oven, or Broil on low for about 10 min.

I did not like fish as a child. But I have come to enjoy it very much. Orange Roughy, cod, tilapia, flounder, walleye and others are white fish and very mild. There are some wonderful recipes to try on Spark Recipes for fish. If your fish has a fishy smell to it, then it might not be fresh and you should not buy it. I have needed to increase my fish intake as well. Be sure the fish you buy is fresh. Good Luck!

Yes, Tilapia is a mild fish, and go easy on Tilapia as it's high in mercury.....but if you really don't like fish ...Flax seeds and flax oil are a good way to get omega-3 and -6 fatty acids into your diet and also omega 3 fortified eggs instead of regular eggs. Include Broccoli, avocados, olive oil, spin ach, Berries..... raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, and strawberries to get more antioxidants.
Snack on walnuts or pumpkin seeds...and eating just 4 walnuts per day can keep your heart healthy.
Poppy Seeds are a good source of Omega 3's fatty acids. This is a good carb that provides energy.

I think tilapia is a very mild fish. If it's fresh, it won't smell fishy. I wrap mine in foil and top it with a little parsley and lemon juice. I bake it in the toaster oven for 10 minutes or so and it's quite good. You can experiment with different seasonings and find your favorite.
