When you're buying fish, pick ones with firm flesh, clear eyes and shiny scales. Choose fillets with a nice, glossy sheen to them and avoid fish that smells, well, fishy! Fresh fish should smell clean like the sea breeze.
Here's a tip on how to reduce the odors that result from cooking fish: incorporate some acid. For instance, poach or dip your fish in buttermilk before cooking it. Another tip is wrap and bake fish in parchment paper, which keeps both the flavours and the aromas inside.
