I have never cooked fish at home and I really want to start. It always seems so expensive to me though! What is a good price for fish on sale? How much should I be looking to spend for 2 adults and a toddler? I know it varies with the area so if you want to tell me where you live too that would be great but any idea on prices would still be a start for me. :)

It doesn't just depend upon the region, it depends on the fish.


If you like tilapia (a firmer, white, mild-flavored fish), both Sam's Club and Costco have an excellent price on frozen filets in a multi-pound (3 or 4, I forget) bag.


I usually won't pay more than $6.99/lb for fresh, in-season wild salmon unless it is a big King salmon filet - we will pay $10/lb. for those.

thanks! I meant to say and forgot that I was wondering most about whitefish but it was great to know the prices on all the other fish too! Especially salmon. I have never had it before in my life so I will probably try it at a restaurant first anyways since im a terrible cook lol

You can probably tell by what I eat, I'm a native Northwesterner.

I buy a 4lb box of frozen tilapia filets at Walmart or Sam's Club for $10.
