Joy’s Thai Food Tips #1: Eliminating Fish Smell

Have someone in the house that doesn’t like “fishy smell”?

When you bake or grill your fish stuff the abdominal cavity with long lemongrass wrapped tightly and tied  (with other lemongrass). Lemongrass has the power to kill the fish smell especially while baking in a closed oven in foil.

Another tip – use a different fish. Trout, catfish, and mullet seem to really have a fishy odor associated with them. “Tilapia” is a light tasting fish that, when properly cleaned and stuffed with lemongrass and dipped in some lemon, garlic, and chili sauce can be almost free of fishy odors.
