This is a super easy tip for removing the fishy odor and taste from seafood.


  • milk
  • seafood


Unless your fish is freshly caught, it can have a quite offensive fishy odor. This can be easily remedied by soaking your fish in milk.

  • Clean your fish as usual. Then put it in a bowl and pour milk in until the fish is covered. Let soak for 10 minutes. Before removing, rub the fish down with the milk in the bowl, then rinse with water.
  • Taking this step before cooking will not only remove the fishy taste from your seafood but it will also reduce the fishy cooking smell in your home.
