    The first two options +the herb crusted salmon + the mahi mahi sound amazing !  If I had to chose! I think the first option is most appropriate.

    My husband thinks Chilean Sea Bass is the best fish he’s ever been served.

    I wouldn’t pick the salmon, if I was planning, because of it’s strong smell. My Mom loves pretty much all seafood, but she doesn’t like salmon. We once went to an event, whose version of surf and turf was filet and salmon; I don’t like the smell of it, either, and I couldn’t wait to get it off my plate.

    Personally, I prefer scallops or a crabcake.

    For wedding catering, they’re not going to be cooking fish to temperature, so I would avoid any fish that people normally get to order just the way they like it, namely salmon and tuna. Luckily, the cod, mahi mahi, red snapper, and trout options all sound amazing to me! I chose cod just because I think it tend to be a crowdpleaser.

    I think the mahi, yellow fin and snapper sound delicious! I worry about shiitakes, because theyre quite a strong flavour, but other than that, I’d eat any of them.

    I would go with the cod, trout, or snapper.  Fish is pretty devisive as is, but most people I know who don’t just love all fish are fine with milder tasting fish like those three and would never touch something as strongly flavored as salmon.

    On a personal note, I probably would prefer the trout or cod just based on flavor profile.

    We had a lovely grilled salmon steak with mustard sauce as the fish option at our wedding. It was simple, classic and went over really well!

    Our of your options I went with the herb crusted cod because it sounded really yummy too 🙂

    I would go for a dish that promises lots of color on the plate. I also would select a white fish. I would avoid “fishy-smell” fishes like salmon and I would make it a gluten-free option (no crusted anything) to give my guests more options. Most people hate mushrooms (I love them). So my colorful choices for a tasty, fusion fish dish would be: Mahi Mahi with Mango-Ginger Chutney and Red Snapper with Cherry Tomato, Shallots and Basil.  They are beautiful plates.

    You cant go wrong with cod! Fish is one of those things that people can be divided on, they tend to either love it or hate it. The people that fall in the middle tend to prefer meaty fish like cod, haddock and red snapper rather than strong fishy fish like salmon.

    In the UK cod is basically the gateway of fish because its the fish used in fish and chip shops (battered). I know so many people who ‘hate fish except cod because its from the chippy’.

    raspberrybidet :  If you are looking for a crowd pleaser, go with a mild fish, such as the rainbow trout, cod, or red snapper. This will please the people who like fish and the people in the middle. Personally, I find cod boring, so I would go for the rainbow trout or red snapper.

    I love fish, so they all sound delicious to me.

    I think that the mahi mahi sounds so nice and fresh and light which is what I think that a fish option should be

    I would say the cod is probably the “safest” option as almost anyone who eats fish eats white fish – while not everyone eats salmon etc

    The tuna would slightly concern me because a lot of people get freaked out at rare things and to be honest that is best served med rare at most – tuna that is well done isn’t very nice IMO

    The mahi mahi sounds lovely although going against the grain I would pick salmon because I enjoy it. Cod is boring.
