Little tricks

  • To make bream steaks accurately evenly cooked, do not make them overly thick. The optimum thickness is no more than three centimeters. Otherwise, the pieces may burn inside, but remain damp inside.
  • To completely remove the seemingly unpleasant smell of river mud, you can not just sprinkle the carcass with lemon juice, but soak it in a lemon solution. On a liter of water, add juice, pressed from one citrus.Immerse bream here for at least an hour. By the way, this technique will not only improve the aroma, but also soften the fish, making it more tender.
  • When cooking, it is possible to lay seasonings or herbs in the abdomen, and then all the flesh from the inside will be filled with aromas and soaked.
  • To prevent the bream from sticking to the skin when cooking, firstly, place it in a hot frying pan or place it in a well-heated oven. Secondly, it is recommended to lubricate the surface with oil, and quite abundantly.
