When batter frying fish, make sure the batter is cold; it will prevent soaking up too much oil.

Make sure your oil is hot by dropping in a small piece of bread; it should brown within a minute.

Never be afraid to experiment with recipes. Change the seasonings to reflect your personal tastes.

To keep fried fish crispy while cooking, place cooked pieces in warm oven on a wire rack over a paper towel lined plate.

Spend the extra time making sure no bones remain in your fillets. Nothing puts off the appetite more quickly than finding bones in your fish.
Leftover fish? Cut it into bite sized pieces and add it to a salad.

Try the microwave if you're dieting. Fish cooks quickly and tastes great with just lemon juice and seasoning. Watch the fish carefully, the microwave cooks it quick.

Fish are delicate. Do not cook your fillets too long or at too high of a temperature. This will make the fish tough and rubbery. Cook the fish only until it flakes easily at the touch of a fork.

Basting lean fish such as walleye and bass when broiling will help keep them from drying out.

Directions:
If you prefer your fish to be mild and as non-fishy as possible, soak it in milk for at least 1/2 hour. The milk removes most of the fishy taste and helps frozen and re-thawed fish to taste fresher. Consider placing frozen fish in a sealed container with milk (alone or with seasonings) to soak and thaw in the refrigerator overnight. The fish should be rinsed before soaking in the milk, as it is best to take the fish straight out of the milk and prepare it for cooking without re-rinsing. However, fish rinsed after soaking in milk will still be slightly milder and fresher tasting than fish that has not been soaked in milk.


Bacon is wonderful when baked over fish. Try laying some fish fillets in a greased baking dish, covering them with strips of bacon, pouring a little barbecue sauce over the top and baking it in the oven until the bacon is cooked. The bacon will not be crisp like fried bacon, but it should be cooked. The result is absolutely delicious!
