How to buy the right kind of fish?
When you are buying the right kind of fish of course it will have a mild fishy smell but the stench will not be unbearable. Unless the fish has gone bad, it will have an odor that is still bearable. You must also look into the eyes to find out if the fish is fresh!
The eyes should be crystal clear and the gills should be filled with blood! This will ensure that the color of the gills is either bright red or pinkish in hue. These are some of the factors that you must keep in mind when you wish to determine if the fish you are buying is fresh or not.
What is the way to remove the pin bones?
Now that you have accomplished the job of buying the right kind of fish, we have to find ways to remove the pin bones. These are tiny bones that are found on the thicker surface of the fillet! There is a definite way of getting the bones removed. You can not use bare hands and fingers to remove the bones as this will not yield much effective result. A pair of fishmongers or tweezers is the right tool that you must use to do the job. Needle-nose plier is also enough to accomplish the task with perfection.
What is the right way to store your fish?
Fish is a tender protein and you need to follow the right technique to store them right! First of all, when you are done washing the fillets, put them inside a plastic ziplock and seal the mouth. This bag is then placed on top of a bowl of ice. This will enable you to keep the fish fresh and cold for a long time.
Why are we asked to not marinate the fish with seasoning for too long?
Fish meat is a gentle protein and if you wish to prevent it from spoilage and turning soggy, then you need to know the right duration for marinating the fish. Too long can turn the flesh mushy and that is something we are sure you do not want. Streaky fish are marinated for two hours while flaky fish should be marinated no longer than thirty minutes.
What is the need for pat drying the surface of the fish?
Usually during the process of pan searing, one will often find instructions in the recipes to pat dry the surface of the skin. You can use a paper towel to accomplish the task. This will ensure that the fish is in the right shape and that too much moisture does not turn the skin flabby.
Once the fish is placed inside the pan and it is halfway done, the meat becomes tender and the right way to toss and flip them is with the aid of a fish spatula. This will prevent the fillets from breaking and falling apart.
Here are some wonderful fish and rice recipes for you!
