How long do you cook baked fish?

depends on the type of fish and the thickness of the fish. A general rule could be a typical fillet (boneless) of white fish say Tilapia bake in oven at 325 degrees for about 15 minutes or until it turns white and becomes firmer. This is a soft fish so it doesn't take very long to cook. The firmer fish take longer. I always bake my fish and always at 325 degrees. Ill give you a link for fish recipes below.


Why do portobello mushrooms smell like fish?

Most people do not think that portobello mushrooms smell like fish. It may be that your mushrooms were cooked in oil that was previously used for fish, or were stored in a refrigerator or container that retained a fishy odor. Another reason could be that the portobello mushrooms that you used were old and had been stored in a plastic bag. When mushrooms get older they can release amines which are what makes up a fishy odor.

Why are seafood restaurants closed on Monday?

Because there are no shipments during Sunday. So just in case you go to a restaurant on a Monday ordering something from the seafood menu would not be a good idea as more likely that seafood wont be fresh and possibly you would be eating something that was shipped last Friday and is possibly 3-4 days old. When it comes to seafood you always want it fresh.

How do they smoke mackerel?

For a product of good eating quality, mackerel with a fat content of at least 10 per cent should be used. For smoked whole fish, the mackerel are gutted, or headed and gutted, as required, the gut cavity cleaned and the black bellywall lining removed. For hot smoked fillets, single fillets with skin left on are cut from the whole fish. The rate of uptake of salt during brining depends principally on the size of the fish; large fish take longer to brine than small ones. Thus to achieve a reproducible uptake of salt all the fish in a batch should be of about the same weight. Mackerel fillets take a much shorter time to brine; as a guide, an average fillet takes about 3 minutes in 80° brine. Brined whole fish can be tied by the tails in pairs and hung over tenter rods for smoking, or hung individually by the tails in keyhole slots cut in metal frames. Mackerel with heads on can be speated through the eyes. Fillets are laid on trays made of nylon coated or stainless steel wire mesh. Full tenters, speats or trays are loaded on trolleys which when fully loaded can be left to drain for 1-2 hours or wheeled directly into the kiln without draining. In kilns with more than one trolley, the first loaded trolley should be placed at the air outlet end, and the last loaded trolley at the air inlet end.

How do you eat soft shell crab?

Keep it alive in the refrigerator and then fry it in a pan in some butter with Old Bay on it. It helps to put something to help it fry evenly on it such as cornmeal or a breading/batter before adding the seasoning. Then you can either put it on a sandwich(my favorite) or just eat it plain.

It is also good to fry in fatback instead of butter. YUM!

I live in MD on the bay so I eat a lot of soft-crabs.
