Milk Might Be The Quickest Solution To Unpleasant Fish Smells

The scent of fish can be overwhelming for some, preventing them from cooking

it. Fortunately, there's a simple way to reduce the odor: soaking your fish in milk before cooking.

The proteins in milk bond with the fatty acids on the fish's surface, neutralizing the unpleasant smell and making it more palatable to people who are sensitive to fishy odors.

Simply, soak your fish in milk for 20 minutes. Remove the fish from the milk, rinse it, pat the flesh dry with paper towels, and then cook it how you wish.
