Getting Rid of Cooked Fish Smells

The Gift That Keeps on Giving

Cooking fish can be a city cook's dilemma.   Many of us love fish, it's really healthy, and it's versatile to cook.  Still, with most city kitchens being without fresh air (few of us have windowed kitchens and those ceiling vents are mostly useless), cooking fish can leave some unpleasant memories.

A final comment:  despite the sometimes stink of cooked fish, fresh fish has no smell.  I suppose if we only ate sashimi or ceviche or tuna tartare, we'd never have this city housekeeping challenge.  But who wants to never again pan sear a perfect piece of wild salmon?  Not me.
