Simple Tips for Cooking a Delicious Fish Dinner

More people should include fish in their diet because it brings many advantages to their health. Starting with the fact that it can diminish mood swings, fish is also important because it has vitamin D, helps the bones remain strong, improves the sight and the functions of the brain. It is indeed a strange thing to see such a difference between fish and various other types of meat. But the answer is quite simple: the oceans are filled with algae that have high nutritional values and, guess what, fish eat algae.
Cooking
Here the issues might turn to be more serious that we have thought. Many believe that seafood is boring in terms of cooking and has a strong taste. However, if you have some imagination, cooking will become a piece of cake. The options are varied and very surprising. The first thing you have to do is divide fish into two categories: red and white.
Learn your fish
Before cooking you should know the main features of each type of fish meat. Red fish is rich in vitamins C and D as well as Omega oils, while white fish has plenty of anti-oxidants and proteins. You will be able to differentiate the two types of fish meat by their taste. Many people consider that white fish has a sort of distinct smell, but the red fish also has similar features.
Buying
When you want to try out a fish dinner, make sure you search well first. Don't be shy in asking a specialized person where does the fish come from (farm, harbor etc). In addition to this you might also get some great services like gutting, skinning, portioning or pulling the bones out.
Freshness
Fresh fish is essential for the success of your dinner. Obviously, all sellers will tell you that their fish is fresh, but you cannot always trust their statements, right? So examine it yourself! You can figure out if the fish is not fresh by smelling it but also by looking at it. The white dish appears to be very dry and patchy, while the red one can lose its color and break up in pieces. Just don't mistake the red fish that loses its color in contact with the water with the old one. And last but not least, keep in mind that whole fish has more flavor. Asian people know it better, so if you see one in a store, you might want to pay attention to what he is buying.
Seasoning
This is very important when cooking fish. Try to keep in your kitchen as many spices as possible. If you do not know what type works with fish, try sea-salt, herbs, paprika or pepper. These will be of great help when doing marinades to make your fish irresistible.
Cooking
This is very easy! The first thing you should do is add some seasoning and lemon juice, wrap the whole deal in tin foil and heat it up at 180 degrees C for about twenty minutes or less, depending on the fish.
That's all! See how easy it is? Always keep in mind that fish can be cooked in many ways. If you are interested in trying a few amazing flavors, try some Florida fishing recipes!
