My friends asked whether it's possible to make frozen fish taste as good as freshly caught fish. It's hard but we gave it a try.

Here are the 3 most popular methods and let's see which works the best through experiments. Enjoy! :cheers:

Rockfish shouldn't get fishy at all unless it wasn't taken care of.Try those techniques with the Mackerel.Another one that works is baking soda and water,just soaked for 10 or 15 minutes.We used to do that with Catfish to get rid of the lake water taste most of it had.

Thanks for the idea of baking soda. Will try it out next time to remove the algae smell.

The fillet was from grocery store, the frozen one, which was far worse than the fresh fillet.
