Lifehacks with fish can make it much easier to prepare, store and enjoy this healthy product. Here are a few helpful tips:

Bone Removal:
To quickly remove bones from fish fillets, use brow tongs. It does a great job of removing small bones without damaging the meat.

Marinade for Fish:
Use citrus fruits (lime, lemon, orange) in marinades for fish. Not only do they add fresh flavour, but they also help “leaven” the fish, making it more tender.

Cooking on the Grill:
To prevent the fish from sticking to the grill, anoint the grate with vegetable oil before cooking. You can also use a slice of citrus fruit as an oil “brush”.

Buying and Primary Processing:
When choosing fresh fish, pay attention to the eyes – they should be clear and bulging. Also check the smell – fresh fish should not have a pungent sea odour.

If you are freezing the fish, wrap it in cling film and place it in a freezer bag. This will help avoid frost formation and preserve the quality of the meat.

Fish Broth:
Use the trimmings and bones of fish to make a delicious fish broth. It is great for making soups, sauces and porridge.

Hand Odour Removal:
If the smell of fish remains on your hands after cooking, rinse them under cold water with salt and grated lemon peel.

Serving with Caviar:
Serve fish dishes with caviar. This will not only add exquisite flavour but also give the dish a luxurious look.

Marinade for Baking:
Marinate the fish in a honey mustard sauce before baking. This will give the dish a rich flavour and wonderful aroma.

Freshness of Fish:
If you are in doubt about the freshness of the fish, check the firmness of the fish and the sheen of the flesh. Fresh fish should spring back when pressed and have a clean sheen.

These kitchen tips will help you get the most out of cooking and eating fish, making the process easier and more flavourful.
