Last week someone gave me some dried smoked fish (quite a lot actually) from overseas. I had no idea how to cook it. The packaging says that it needs to be cooked first before consumption. So I just cooked it with onion, green paprikas (the hot ones), salt and a pinch of sugar. I grinded all the spices and then fried it in a pan, and then I added some water (not too much though) and I put some of the fish into the pan. I let it boil. It smelled so good and finally I thought it was ready to eat. To my surprise, the fish was so rubbery, it literally felt like chewing on the bottom of a shoe (not that I have tried to chew the bottom of a shoe though, lol). My bad I did not do a research first before cooking it.
Good thing was, I did not cook all of them. I then did a research. Turned out the fish must be put into cold water and left for 24 hours first before cooked. So, I´m gonna try it some time this week. Anyone has got an experience cooking dried smoked fish?
