Cooking Fish – Doing It Perfectly

Mar 9th 2015 at 5:35 AM

Every one of us is aware of the health benefits of consuming fish. The fats in fishes, especially fatty fishes like salmon, tuna and mackerel are believed to prevent heart disease and even aid in preventing diseases like Alzheimer's and strokes. Despite knowing these health benefits, many people don’t prefer to cook fish at home. The reason is simple – cooking fish needs a little more knowledge. Fish cooks easily and most of the people end up in flaky fillets which neither looks appetizing not tastes good. This article covers some crucial information about cooking fish and relishing its flavor at home.

Easy fish recipes are healthy and full of flavor and nutrients. Blackened, sautéed, grilled or broiled, they are a great source of lean protein. If you want to enjoy the health benefits, it is good if you cook the fresh fish. Fresh one doesn’t smell fishy. Strong flavors means it is not fresh and stored for quite some time – do not purchase it. If you visit the local supermarket, you should ensure you buy the best product and the fish you choose is moist, delicate and delicious.

Bright eyes and firm flesh is sign of freshness and you should buy fish with these visible characteristics. The fillets and steaks should be firm and bright looking. Any brown spot or discoloration is the sign of rotten or spoilt fish – avoid it at any cost.

Refrigerating the fresh fish

The fresh fish should be stored in refrigerator for only a day or two. It should be well wrapped in the freezer paper and then refrigerated. Unless you live in a coastal region with reliable supply of fresh fishes, most fish that you buy is sold frozen. To enjoy the best taste, you should keep it refrigerated until you are ready to cook. It can be thawed in refrigerator, or under cold running water, or also in microwave. Be sure to cook it as soon as thawed to relish the flavor.

Avoid overcooking

There is a thin line between perfectly cooked fish and overcooked fish. For the best results, cook fish until its almost done, remove the pan from the heat and let it rest for a few minutes before serving.

Marinating fish adds flavor and moisture, but it should be kept brief. If the fillets sit in acidic ingredients for more than 30 minutes, it can denature the delicate protein of fishes. Marinades should include extra virgin olive oil, chopped tomatoes, lemon juice, along with seasoning including salt and pepper.
