For centuries, people have made fish a major part of their healthy, daily diet. Fish are typically high in protein and low in saturated fat, and researchers have concluded that eating fish is good for a person and their heart health.
There are several ways to eat fish. Sushi—aka raw fish—is an option, but there are also many ways to cook fish, making it taste good for consumption.
You can bake fish at 450 degrees on a baking sheet (or baking dish) typically for 10 minutes, and then season it with salt, spices or other condiments that you like. Or you can go for the crispy tender strips, done by sautéing (pan frying) fish in oil or butter in a skillet on medium-high heat for 5 minutes. Oftentimes, people like to dip their fish in milk or beaten egg, and then “bread” it—a popular choice for many fish eaters.
Poaching fish involves pouring liquid, like wine, water or milk, into a pan just covering the fish. With the pan covered, fillets can be cooked just below the boiling point for 10 minutes (whole fish take 20 minutes), and later on, use the poaching liquid as a base for a sauce!
If time is of the essence, there’s always the microwave, which takes about 3 minutes (per pound) to cook boneless fish fillet. Add some salt after it’s done, and you’ve got a decent meal.
With summertime comes grilling time. Consider grilling thicker cuts of fish using a clean, oiled grill grate or fish grill basket, depending on the size of the catch.
And, if you love a good fish fry, there’s always the deep fry version of fish—perhaps one of the best ways to eat fish if you generally love fried foods, which most people do.
