Casein is the protein in dairy 1Happy1. People often have reactions to it even though dairy is most notibly known for lactose issues. (And even then it's probably really a casein issue!) People with AS (Autism Spectrum) sometimes respond well to a GFCF (gluten-free, casein free) diet. As would a lot of other people with health/mental (schizo for one) problems?
Re: fish. I always try to buy wild fish, regardless of type, and tilapia, though unfishy tasting, is a farm raised fish, fed who knows what? I'll eat it if I have to though. I'm not *that* picky, esp if I'm hungry!
Another fish to try would be orange roughy and/or halibut (yum). I line a cookie baking sheet with foil, rinse and pat dry with a paper towel the fish, and then drizzle butter and fresh lemon. Since you want casein free*, try getting some ghee instead of butter butter, at the health food store (pricey, but you don't use much, and it lasts). For herbs I use Herbs de Provence which has a bit of extra lemon flavor. Then I broil for 10 mins or more (I like my fish overcooked according to my DH, but I don't care.) You do not have to turn the fish.
Once I also coated the fish in cornmeal for a change. It was average - but I broiled it - maybe I should have pan fried it for more of a crusty crust.
P.S. 1Happy1 - LaChoy has a tamari sauce without wheat (read labels always). You could also try to find a product called Bragg's Liquid Aminos (has soy, not gluten), at the health food store. google it for more info.
*heck, you could just use extra virgin olive oil, too!
