Now that I live in the middle of the USA I really appreciate fresh fish; I took this for granted living in Southern California and then Italy where fresh fish reigns and the average person knows fresh from not so fresh. I learned from my Ligurian (Cinque Terre) raised husband to use few spices with fresh fish. The great thing about freshly caught fish is that less is more, meaning you want to keep it simple so as to taste the flavor of the fish. Fish that’s fried or cooked with lots of sauce and spice is often a way restaurants camouflage its age. The best part is that makes cooking it so easy and fast!
