|The Best Way To Cook Your Freshly Caught Fish
A freshly caught fish can be cooked in a thousand and one ways.
Any fisherman worth his salt has his own unique way of cooking a
freshly caught trout, salmon or whatever fish he caught. So
fisherman all across the country has been handed down methods of
cooking fish. Here are some tips to get the best out of your
Breading and frying a freshly caught fish is as good as it gets.
The smell of butter emanating from the frying pan and the flair
a fisherman puts in flipping his catch is worth its weight in
gold, almost. For the novice fisherman, make sure that the
butter is extra hot but not yet burning. Also, make sure that
the fish is well coated in batter. Season your batter to your
heart's content, salt and pepper never goes wrong. You may want
to try other herbs and spices with the batter for a more
At first glance, grilling would seem to be the easiest way to
handle your fish. A newbie might assume that grilling fish is
the same as grilling steaks or burgers. Unlike fowl or cattle,
fish tends to secret most of its own juices when cooked. On a
grill the delicious juice drips into the coals.
To prevent losing the moisture, first coat the fish with oil.
The oil will seal a part of the moisture inside. Second, keep an
eye on the fillets and turn them as soon as a cut would reveal
that the fresh fish is cooked halfway through. After being
flipped, watch the fish carefully. Remove the fish as soon as it
is cooked through.

fish in its own moisture. Placing herbs and spices inside the
foil with the fish enhances the grilling process and the fish
Baking is the best option for the fisherman who does not want to
watch over the fish during cooking. The fisherman can prepare
the marinade and pre-heat the oven, then pop the fish into the
oven for a predetermined amount of time. You may want to check
on the fish from the time to time, ensuring that you don't
overcook the fish.
Whatever fish you caught, a good recipe and proper cooking will
for sure enhance the catch. Take time to prepare for cooking, a
badly cooked fish will no doubt spoil your day. Remember the
first rule of cooking, don't overcook your fish.
