Everybody understands and agrees with that.
On the other hand, it is pretty easy to make healthy food unhealthy.
Cooking is a delicate process that requires attention.
Take fish, for example.
Which is the best way to cook fish so that it preserves all its qualities and be delicious? I decided to share my wisdom and knowledge with you…actually, it is not so much wisdom as tips a professional chef once told me.
Grill and not fry!
Instead of using a pan, why not choose the grill instead? All you have to do is brush the pieces of fish with a little bit of olive oil and, optionally, with a little bit of salt. Place the fish towards the edges, away from the hotness of the fire and keep it few minutes, depending on the thickness. Accompany it with some grilled vegetables and dinner is ready.
Learn to poach!
I always thought that this procedure requires some sort of special skills. It’s not like that at all! Put a piece of fish in a big pan and then cover it with vegetable broth. The only trick to it is that the fire should be low so that the liquid doesn’t boil. The right temperature is between 75 and 85 degrees C.
Definitely, steaming is one of the healthiest ways to cook fish. Before the actual cooking, rub the pieces of fish with spices or herbs. Pour a little bit of water in the pan and let it boil for at least 10 minutes. It’s simple, isn’t it?
As you can see, it is important what cooking method you choose. There are some recipes that bring the best of a food, so to say. Fish is not that tricky but it should be gently cooked. Add some herbs and a couple of vegetables and it’s really perfect!
