The timing couldn't have been worse. Hours before I planned to bake a cake, my partner used the oven to broil some mackerel, and the lingering smell? Not exactly complementary to chocolate. Here's how we cleared the odor, plus a few more solutions for fish and other oven smells.
Salmon is one of the most versatile proteins to work with in the kitchen. It's delicious and universally loved, quite good for you and very easy to prepare. Salmon still retains its fancy and festive reputation, even though it is more readily available these days and can be purchased at a decent price point from most grocery stores. My favorite way to cook salmon is in the oven, very low and slow, with a pan of water for moist heat. Read on for this utterly simple, foolproof way to produce moist, flavorful and luscious salmon fillets.

Layering the irresistible flavor of classic deviled eggs with a beguiling smokiness, they'll be the first to disappear at any party.
Q: My husband and I just returned from Brittany, France. We dined unbelievably well, but one dish stood out. It was white fish (cod?) cooked in a Camembert cheese sauce. It was heavenly. Any suggestions for similar recipes involving fish with cheese sauce? Thanks!
Did you know that shrimp are the numero uno shellfish consumed in the United States? Once you consider how often we throw them into quick weeknight dishes and their all-around tastiness, this doesn't seem like such as a huge surprise. Do you often cook with shrimp?
When I moved to Japan in 2005, I was surprised to discover how utterly simple the food was. The sticky, salty sauces and over-the-top sushi rolls I knew from Japanese restaurants back home were as American as hamburgers and French fries, I realized.

This salmon teriyaki is a perfect example — lightly glazed and deeply flavorful, it's made with just four ingredients.
