Fish

 

Fish is a superb food it is highly nutritious in proteins and vitamins and the carbohydrates are in the form of oils that are very beneficial to health. it is quickly cooked and easily digested.

Pressure cooking

Pressure cooking fish offers speed, control of cooking, and prevents the build up of fishy smells in the kitchen. The standard method of pressure cooking fish is high pressure steaming and it is one of the best and tastiest way of producing fish. The fish is laid on the trivet over super heated water or a fumet a light fish stock and the juices inside the fish are heated up. The taste is like top quality fried fish.

Buying fish

Good food starts with good ingredients. Buy your fish carefully. A fresh fish looks and feels firm, the eyes should be transparent and slightly bulging sunken and  glazed eyes are bad sign. The gills should be bright red inside and scales shiny.

To get rid of the smell of fish, boiling up a lump of sugar in a pan will counteract most kitchen smells; a slice of lemon will remove smells from the hands.
