Top tips on preventing fish smells

There are some common sense things you can do while cooking fish to minimise those fishy odours and avoid your guests politely covering their noses.

Firstly, before cooking, go around the house and close any bedroom, living room and closet doors – this will help confine the greasy fish smell to the kitchen. Then be sure to ventilate while you cook – use the extractor fan above your oven and, if you can, throw a window or back door open.

The next stage is vital, and you’ll be glad you did it the next day (if you’ve ever woken up to a pan of stinking fish you’ll know what we mean) – clean up immediately, preferably during the cooking process. Bag up any fish waste and, if you can, take the bag outside straight away.

So enjoy the smell of the fish once it’s on the plate in front of you, as that’s the only place you’ll be smelling it.
