Tracking small fish suggestions?

Tuesday, October 13, 2015

Hey guys, I could use some help on how to track down my lunch today!

We ate fish that my father fished today, and obviously this kind of fish (like most small mediterranean fish) are nowhere to be found on the food tracker.

These are the fish I am talking about. They were 10-15 cm long and with delicious white meat.

Could anyone suggest me a similar fish that already exists on the food tracker, in order to track down that instead?

I know..first world problems...I can enjoy delicious fresh fish for free and have troules with tracking it down

P.S. here is a blury picture of my dad bringing his catch home

    Yes codfish proved to be a solid advice! Thank you everyone!

    I second the cod suggestion. If you take a look here: seafoodhealthfacts.org/seafood_nutr

    almost all whitefish is around 100 calories for 3 oz, and is comparable in protein/ etc., so that should be a fairly accurate way of tracking....

    Hi Kiki -
    Cod is a type of white fish. I put cod in the nutrition tracker and it gave full nutritional information. Maybe that would work?

    Hi Angel.. I do not eat fish that much so with recipes or on the tracker.. try to enter the fish by name.. Most of the things there is from restaurants and I have a hard time cause I do things homemade.. I love to cook and have some suggestions.. If you need the answer to Frying.. I am here,.. I was from the South and if it sits still long enough they fry it.. so I have found a Japanese Bread crumb called Planko and if you dip it in egg and then bake it.. It is crunchy and can make you feel like you fired it.. Sorry I am not much help.. In His Love and Grace Just Me emoticon emoticon

    Karen I know exactely what you mean! I feel like that in the summer Every second day we have fresh fish and even more in the refridgerator, and I am really fed up with it! Also in Greece we mostly small fishes and I hate the process of getting your fingers dirty in cleaning them!

    But the rest of the year once a week i enjoy them!

    I don't know? My dad fished in the 1970s, I was a teenager eating fish 5 nights a week!
    His fish were Atlantic Bass, Bluefish mostly off New Jersey Shore .. Salmon fishing in Canada rivers during September salmon season....Flounder from Connecticut water ways when I visited my grandfather summers (was it safe!?) I only started eating fish again in the last three years- that's how fed up I was with it! But I can't answer that question: I would google it then enter food details myself to spark nutrition (you can do that!).... I've done that with specific foods I couldn't find on spark.

    Thank you!

    They were baked in the oven and slightly floured!
    That way they become as tasty as fried but without all that oil! I highly recommend it!

    I cannot find an option for white fish in general either. I know that lean white fish cooked meat is 100/150 cal/grams but I was hoping to find also the rest of the nitritional info, not just calories.

    They sound delicious! How were they cooked? Breaded? Baked? Fried? You can track white fish and then how many ounces you ate and then it all depends on how they were cooked. Good luck!
