Tips for Fish

1. Let your eyes and nose be the judge. Good quality fish smells sea-fresh. It should not have a strong odor or smell bad. Fish fillets and steaks should appear moist, firm and freshly cut.
2. To know how long to cook fish, measure at the thickest point, then allow 10 minutes per inch. This applies to all methods of cooking, such as broiling, frying, grilling, poaching, and steaming.
3. Thaw fish fillets in milk. The milk absorbs the "frozen" taste and adds a "fresh caught" taste.
4. Place a "bed" of celery and onions under fish when baking. Besides adding flavor, it will prevent the fish from sticking.
5. Marinate in ziptop plastic bags instead of bowls or containers you have to clean. Be sure to flip the bag from time to time to make sure everything gets a good soak!
6. When freezing large quantities of fish, place a piece of the wrapping material between each. They'll separate easily to make thawing quicker.
