I think my brain has finally shut down. I just can’t make any more decisions.
So your help please…we are offering a choice of three entrees at dinner. A steak, a chicken and a fish. I can’t decide between the swordfish and the salmon.
Which is more universally liked?
Thanks for your help – as always!!

I would say that salmon is more universal, but I love both. I know a lot of people that don’t “eat fish”, but they will eat salmon. 🙂 HTH.

Salmon..doesn’t swordfish have a high mercury content? then again i’ve never had swordfish.
at least you know everyone has probably tried salmon at some point. mmmm

I would also vote salmon, esp if it’s wild. I personally love swordfish more ‘cuz salmon is more available to me as an option than swordfish. However, swordfish has higher levels of mercury so I try to stay away from it. See here. Just a side suggestion, in case you have a guest that’s vegetarian, you may wanna make sure that a vegetarian option is available to him/her too.

I don’t care for fish but I’ll eat salmon. The folks I do know who eat seafood enjoy it and they don’t care for swordfish at all.
I agree with Pren that alot of vegetarians don’t consider fish to be on their list of acceptable foods because it was alive at some point. Even alot of meat-eaters say that fish is a vegetable. Go figure that one.

I agree that more people are likely to like salmon than swordfish. Although I like both ;o)

Salmon all the way. I am not a seafood fan but am OK with Salmon. I believe that is more universally liked though too and maybe it is because it is more available.

I don’t like either, but salmon would work better, especially if you have picky eaters.

I say salmon too… I’m not a “seafood” person but I like salmon. That, and I’ve heard plenty of food-poisioning stories related to swordfish but none about salmon.

I am one of the few people out there who doesn’t like salmon! But I also would probably go for the beef option myself .
I know that people love salmon, so go for it!

I voted Salmon but I agree you should have a vegetarian dish… many will list __ beef __ chicken __ fish __ pasta

i would definitely go with salmon… swordfish is a little meatier and tough. i would definitely go for the salmon option!
