Some Cooking Methods for Fish

January 21, 2015

Fish

Cooking methods for fish:

 

Grilled Fish

  • When you're grilling fish, keep a close watch. Fish only takes a few minutes per side to cook. If the fillets are an even thickness, sometimes they don't require flipping, they can be cooked through by grilling on one side only.

  • Place fish near the edge of the grill, away from the hottest part of the fire. (Don't try to lift up the fish right away; it will be stuck to the grill).

  • Start checking for colour and if it’s done after a few minutes, once the fish starts to release some of its juices.

  • Flip the fish over when you see light grill marks forming.

 

Poached Fish

  • This gentle cooking method is perfect for seafood. Poaching keeps fish moist and won't mask the delicate flavour of the fish. To poach fish, use vegetable or chicken stock.

  • Use a pan big enough to lay each piece of fish flat.

  • Add enough liquid to just barely cover the fish.

  • Bring the liquid to a simmer, and keep it there.

  • If you see any bubbles coming up from the bottom of the pan, it's too hot, the liquid should "shimmer" rather than bubble. The ideal poaching temperature is between 74 degree celcius to 82 degrees celcius.

 

Steamed Fish

  • Steaming is another gentle cooking method. It produces a mild-tasting fish that is often paired with a flavourful sauce.

  • Rub the fish with spices, chopped herbs, ginger, garlic, and chili peppers to infuse flavour while it cooks.

  • Use a bamboo steamer or a folding steamer basket with enough room for each piece of fish to lie flat.

  • Pour about 1½ inches of water into the pan.

  • Place the steamer over the water, cover the pot, and bring the water to a boil.

  • Begin checking the fish for doneness after 10 minutes.

 

Broiled Fish

  • Broiling is great when you want a fast, simple, hassle-free preparation with delicious results. It gives fish a nicely browned exterior with the convenience of a temperature-controlled heat source. Just follow the basic grilling instructions above. For easy clean-up, line the broiler pan with a piece of foil.
