Cooking Fish Without The Extremely Fishy Smell?

by mishell

HELP soooooooo sick of everyone who cooks these fish always fry them , because they say ...can't stand the fishy smell cooked any other way.

The list of fish is as follows...sardines, smelts,butter fish,catfish, snapper-all, trout, orange roughy, walleye.

So how can I cook these fish without the linger smell in the kitchen, so as to introduce others to explore the wonderful world of the palette ( sorry if I didn't spell it correctly...just hit a Pavlov's moment ! ).

Again help, remember me I love squid, octopus.. . that's as far as I've gotten so far. As long as it's not slimy, I'll try it... okay I do have the option of al
ways saying no thank you, just tell me the truth about it first, then I may or may not.

Not trying to prove anything to anyone , but you never know it might turn out to be your absolutely favorite, as is calamari to me know... I'm ( hahaha...so terrifed of the live ones in the aquariums!!! ). But I can sure eat them .


Answer
Hi Mishell

To help eliminate the smell of cooked fish, try place a small bowl of vinegar out on the counter, after you cook the fish. Once you start to smell vinegar the smell of the fish should be gone.


Thanks for visiting the cookingfishmonger.

What is the full list of shellfish global ?
by: mishell

Frank, thank you so much. You are a G-dsend.Now I have a question for you, is squid, octopus deemed a shellfish ? So many ...Chefs say no, I've even asked the National History Museum, none have a definative answer, so what are they...many of my family are allergic to shellfish ( crabs, lobster,clams... ), will I ever get them to try other seafoods, or will I end up accidently poisoning them ( JEEZ praying I don't !!!) Help, once again.

I soak my fish in milk before I cook it; this includes shrimp as well. Not mussels or lobster and I have never cooked a clam
