Pointers for Buying and Storing Fish

Fish is sold by piece or by kilo depending on the kind. It’s best to buy it early morning to ensure freshness but now night market also offers fresh fish. It’s good to know how to choose fresh fish and if you want to know here are some guides to follow when buying fish:

1. The eyes of fresh fish are bright and bulging.
2. The flesh of fresh fish is firm.
3. Fresh fish has red colored gills
4. The smell of fresh fish is not stale.
5. Fish spoils easily. It should be cooked at once if there is no refrigerator. If you want to keep it in your freezer you should wrap it covered containers because the odor of the fish is easily absorbed by milk, butter and other foods.

I’ll post next how to clean fish.
