But while I haven't really found a way other than fried that it's palatable, fresh caught and fried at home is still going to be a better alternative than processed, frozen fishsticks.
As for the use of food stamps: I love the idea and can't understand why anyone would be opposed to being able to use food stamps to buy food. Even though it's largely about the experience, the end goal is to go home with a bag of fresh fish. And an uproar over using food stamps at a farmer's market? WTF, man?

i hate fish, so I would never use them for it, but it's great for everyone else
