I use the side burner on my gas grill to fry fish, that way I never have to worry about the house smelling fishy. If you don't have a side burner on your grill, you could always buy an inexpensive hotplate and use it on the patio. I do all my frying (which is not very much these days) outside.

BoggsZ,


Soaking the fish in cold milk for 20 min. does the trick. Drain fish, throw away the milk, before rolling the fish in seasoned corn meal or flour and frying. I've heard that you can also use sprite or 7-up for soaking this will also give it a lemony flavor. (I prefer fresh lemons though and use them at the table to squeeze on the fish.)
Hope this helps.

My mother-in-law soaks fish in salt water (????) but I always thought that was just to keep it from tasting too fishy. I just can't stand for my house to smell fishy. The grease residue gets on everything!!! That's why I fry outside.

bbkimberly, shame on you, LMAO. That was the funniest thing I've read today. I can just picture your poor husband sitting outside all by his lonesome, eating his fish. Hahahahaha. So, you don't eat shrimp or crab legs either???

LOLOLOLOL......actually, he isn't alone. Our 2 boys are outside too. They love salmon! Now crab, shrimp, lobster- that's another story. Lots of lemon and nothing else! It's funny - I will eat what he won't eat - squid, abalone, and octopus......LOL Our tastes are so different it amazes me that he ever eats here

I don't know if it will work for fishy smells but I know to keep grease smells out of the house when frying you can set a bowl of white vinegar beside the stove while you fry. It would be worth trying with the fish. I got this tip from a great book called "Talking Dirty with the Queen of Clean". I'm not sure who it is by but she has lots of GREAT tips using very basic things like vinegar and baking soda.

Hi Lisa. I've seen the Queen of Clean on tv. She does commercials for something. I use a lot of vinegar for cleaning. Another thing that works wonders on odors is vanilla extract. I borrowed a suitcase one time years ago that smelled so bad I was afraid to put my clothes in it. You can't very well complain when someone was nice enough to loan you something, so I tried the vanilla. Soaked several cottonballs and zipped them up inside. The next day all the odor was gone!! I have used this tip several times and it has always worked like a charm. One note: vanilla extract can damage wood finishes.

Happy frying. Ewwwwwwwwww. I'm still gonna fry outside!!

Fixing Fish without the fishy smell or taste

This is so easy. I bake all my fish in orange juice and lemon juice. This really takes out the fishy flavor and smell. I also sometimes use lemon/pepper. I learned this a long time ago and have never had a complaint when I cook fish. Use this instead of water. It works!!!
