Fish in my personal opinion is already tasty regardless of how you cook them whether is poaching, frying, in soups or baked these versatile ingredient will turn out most of the times good but sometimes adding sauces can make it even better by enhancing and complementing its flavour while removing that fishy taste and smell. Don’t you agree?
