I like fish and would like to eat a lot more Salmon but the taste makes me want to vomit. How can I get it in my mouth, down my throat, and keep it there? I have liked smoked salmon in the past but only on bagels with onions and cream cheese, with only the onions in my diet now. I'd rather not consume smoked foods as well. I have some frozen salmon burgers in the freezer now so that's a start.
You might try making your salmon into burger or cakes, it obviously won't eliminate the taste of salmon but it will dilute it and tone it down. It might be a way for you to acquire the taste.
A good recipe that I've tried is here http://www.elanaspantry.com/sesame-salmon-burgers/
Whilst those burgers were yummy keep in mind I love salmon so YMMV :)
Hello. I am from a planet called Earth. I saw your cry for assistance from across the galaxy. Apparently on your planet there is is a food (salmon) that "makes you vomit" when you eat it. You ask how to approach this situation skillfully.
How about: don't eat salmon.
A food makes you puke, and you ask for suggestion about how to adjust?
Don't eat it if you don't like it - you should enjoy your food. If you want to go full on into a piece of fresh I definitely agree with salmon cakes or just simply broiled with lemon, capers and rosemary.
I agree with DoradoGalore, don't eat it if it tastes gross to you. Remember that really fresh salmon won't have as strong a smell or taste. Maybe the stuff you've had is old and smelly? I usually bake or BBQ it with grated orange peel/salt/pepper on top.
For smoked salmon sans crackers, try using an endive leaf as a boat, put some boursin cheese in and a little hunk of smoked salmon on top. You still get the crunch and the boursin gives a good contrast to the salmon.
Hopefully, if you are eating Salmon, you're eating wild caught Alaskan salmon and not some fish farm CAFO equivalent - though the farmed stuff will likely have less of a fish flavor than the real stuff. (And there's a danger now that the farmed stuff is GMO to include extra growth hormones, plus it's been fed soy and other crap.)
I've never had issues with Salmon, in fact, I love the stuff, so not sure what to tell you other than to mess around with various recipes - if you want to .
Could it be the Salmon you just found nasty has gone bad or was near bad or you're subconsciously remembering a time when you ate some unfresh Salmon and now you have a reaction to all Salmon?
Some of the best I've had was ceder plank grilled, seems to come out with a milder taste.
Another is to make Lomi Lomi Salmon - assuming you're not avoiding tomato. (You can make it with smoked as well, and even add cilantro or parsley to it.)
Another thing you could do with smoked is to wrap it in lettuce along with onion and capers and a bit of lemon juice/zest.
This may sound crazy, but you might have good luck eating it raw. My husband disliked fish, including salmon, when we first met. Then he had some raw salmon at sushi and thought it was tasty.* It was like his gateway to fish, and now he loves even cooked fish (at least whitefish and salmon, just not breakfast trout). The second step in his stage to loving fish was plank seared salmon. I second raydawg: make sure to get the good stuff, and grill it up on a cedar plank for extra tastiness.
*Caveat here: I'm talking about a good sushi restaurant here. In Portland, OR, that could also mean inexpensive. In Boston, I have yet to find a good sushi restaurant: I've had spoiled food twice now. So if you go this route, make sure to find a place with fresh fish. Or just get some sushi grade salmon at the grocery store and do it at home.
