When we stand at the fish counter, my 3 yr. old scans the case for fish that look like fish - you know, with eyes, heads and fins. He hasn't accepted that the pink and white pieces might be fish too, since it they're missing their required body parts and all. Then he enthusiastically (i.e. in a really loud voice) suggests I "buy the gray fish!" (trout), or "the orange one!" (red snapper.) And sometimes I oblige because dear husband loves to grill whole fish. We season them on the inside and stuff them with lemon slices and herbs and grill them for about 8 minutes. A trout makes a really nice portion.
They don't look quite as pretty once they've been on the grill, but that is just the skin. The meat on the inside is moist and it will taste delicious.
