Oh Fish!

With a flavour as fragile as its flesh, we know for a matter of fact that the fish is one of the most versatile foods ever! A spate of interesting species and the reams of ways to plate it have never ceased to fascinate chefs all over. Does cooking it look overwhelming? Well, it’s only when you don’t know how to do it!

The role of the fish in the functionality of the human body has been pointed out time and again. It is rich in protein, heart-healthy omega 3.  It helps make improvements in brain-development and reproduction. These delightful treats from the sea can also be key to a healthy diet!

Want to achieve that perfectly cooked fillet with flawlessly crisped skin? There is no substitute for practice! Also bear in mind that baking fish helps you get the satisfying crunch of fried fish, minus the fat. But also watch out on the amount of butter, cheese, oil and mayonnaise you are using in it.

Planning to try grilled fish? Grilled fish has layers of flavours far beyond the simple fried one. Remember that fish with hearty flesh is best suited for grilling. Do a Grilled Sea Bass rubbed with seasonings and grilled in a herbed butter blend or innovate with a Cornmeal-Crusted Tilapia Salad. Fish can be a perfect canvas for a variety of sauces and seasonings!

Pleasing accompaniments like the super-delicious garlic ginger basil glaze also need to be paid heed to.  Wild fennel deliciously braised in butter, served alongside a fresh piece of fish would go together like a dream!
