English: Swordfish – 2001-11-09 From Jon Sullivan’s “Herb marinaded grill swordfish. For some reason Ralph’s was out of fresh bay leaves, so I ended up using dried ones here. Not the same at all. Darn good just the same. I think I’ll serve it with garlic butter on Thanksgiving.” Camera: Olympus 2100UV, Not recorded, Lens: Not recorded, Not recorded, Not recorded, ISO Not recorded Keywords: swordfish lemon bayleaf cooking dinner grilled food (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I have made so many mistakes
when it comes to cooking fish.
Sometimes it would come out rubbery, or
just too tough.

I was so afraid of under cooking
the fish itself that I would end
overcooking it. There are some tips
and tricks for cooking fish. Reports:


• Fry fillets in 18 inch of oil for 3 to 6 minutes a side, or until it’s golden and fish flakes easily.

• Thickness of fillets will determine the cooking time.


• Fish is best grilled over a moderately hot fire and on a surface that has been well oiled.


• Place fish, 1 inch thick or less, 2 to 4 inches from the source of heat.

These tips should help you cook perfect fish
every time. Also remember to season your fish
well. Don’t overdo it. Generally depending on the
type of fish, I use, Old Bay seasoning, and
fresh dill.

Simple Lemon Butter Sauce Recipe:


2 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 tablespoon of white wine

Pinch of Pepper

Fresh Dill to go on the top.

Melt the butter in a small saute pan.
Add the lemon juice and warm slightly. Add
the wine when the sauce is off the flame.
Spoon on top of the fish with a pinch
of fresh dill.

  1. some of my greatest meomires of the kids growing up were cooking together and some of the food fights we got into boy were they messy but we all remember them and laugh and i wouldn’t change it for the cleanest house in the world. Someone once told me do you want your kids to remember a clean house or fun times with their mom. It was the greatest advice ever as we made messes and cleaned them up together or I happily cleaned them up on my own knowing I had just built something wonderful. Cooking with your kids (and hopefully I will have grandkids soon) is such a great joy! Great video post! looking forward to more from you.
