1) Don’t leave fresh fish in the fridge more than 2 days without cooking it because this can cause food poisoning

2) Defrost frozen fish overnight before cooking it. Place frozen fish in a porcelain dish not a plastic one otherwise the plastic will collect bacteria and it is hard to get out.

3) Fish is cooked properly when the color is even throughout after cutting it with a knife.
