2. Attempt to purchase fish the day you propose on making it.

3. When choosing fish all the time level to the piece you need. In shops the freshest fish is positioned within the entrance of the window, closest to you, and the fish from the day earlier than is positioned within the again, closest to the fishmonger. So when you find yourself wanting on the fish closest to you and ask for it, he pulls it from the again. It doesn’t imply there’s something incorrect with that fish from the day earlier than, it’s simply not the freshest…and also you need the freshest!
