After frying fish or something that leaves a lingering odor in the house. Put out several bowls with about a 1/2 cup white vinegar, particularly in the kitchen, for several hours or overnight. The odor will disappear. By Pam Rose
Last year a friend of ours recommended a product called Panko. It is located in the Asian food section of the grocery store in a small green box. It is similar to a bread crumb mixture and is excellent in taste and your fish is not greasy.
In a small bowl, combine soy sauce and lemon juice. Pour 1/4 cup marinade in a resealable plastic bag, and add fish. Seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 20 minutes. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.

Whenever I cook fish, either baking it or panfrying, there is a milky residue that seeps from the fish. The fish is done, but the residue is unappetizing looking. I see lots of great recipes, but are afraid to try them because of this. What causes it and how can I cook the fish to avoid it?

Maybe you are not cooking them long enough,good luck.
It is coagulated protein from fish juices/moisture. It tastes fine, but looks yucky to some [depends on how much]. Scrape it off and try not to mess up the fish or cover it with parsley. Or maybe let fish drain a bit on paper towel or rack before cooking and see if that minimizes the problem.
This milky residue for fish is the same as blood from beef. it is not harmful nor is it inedible. Just carefully remove it from the edges of the fish. It does not mean the fish is not totally cooked. Eat that fish, it is good for you.
If you bake them on a rack most of the juice will fall into the catch pan.
I have good luck wih fish on a Foreman grill. I make my own olive oil spray with one of those sprayer thingees, and use olive oil, garlic powder (don't use salt) or Mrs. Dash, then watch it! Cooks quickly. Sprinkle with fresh lemon juice!
