What kind of fish to buy? And where?

I live in a northern Detroit suburb and would like to add fish into my diet on a regular basis. I like the flavor of red snapper and fresh brook trout and would like to branch out. I want it to be budget friendly (say $12 and under per pound).

Is frozen comparable to fresh? The only frozen fish I ever had was the walleye, pike, perch and other great lakes fresh fish my father would bring home from fishing trip- which was always deep fried. (Yuck)

What places are the best to buy it. (surprise- there is not a fish monger in the close area that I can afford to purchase at regularly) I have looked at the fish in my local kroger and was not impressed by the limp dull yucky looking fish.

Thanks for the input.

Mini Eden on Rochester Rd. 248-650-3337 My husband and I love them. We think they have the best Chinese in the area. I think the portions are large. And you can order a 'combination' meal, which comes with fried rice and an egg roll. They offer delivery so you don't even have to go out. How easy is that!
