So it surprises me when people tell me they hate to eat fish because it is messy to make, dry, and tough. Well I suppose fish can be all of those things if they only way you prepare fish is to deep fry it or over cook it. Growing up on Lake Erie, I thought the only way you cooked fish was as a deep fried breaded fillet because that’s how we ate it.

We also learned the secret to making fish is to realize that it very easy to overcook. For most seafood and fish recipes, you just need to lightly sauté seafood at a low to medium heat to heat it through. Cooking fish any longer or at a higher temperature or both is s how you end up with dry or rubbery fish fillets on your plate.
Guess how I know?
