HOW TO SCALE A FISH
Fish should be cleaned as soon
as possible after being caught, a
curry comb being the very best
article with which to remove
scales. If fish are dipped in boiling
water a mirtute they will scale
much easier. Begin at the tail
with sharp, upward strokes until
every scale is removed. If the fish
is to be boiled or broiled do not
remove either tail or head.
Handle a fish as little as pos
sible. Do not wash it in more
than one water or much of the
juice will be lost. Wipe clean with
a cloth, with a pinch of salt. When
all the blood and scales are wiped
away wrap the fish in another
clean cloth and set aside until
time to use.
Many of the fresh water fish
have a muddy taste. This can be
removed by rubbing with dry salt
and let them stand a few hours or
over night or soak them in salted
water for an hour, with the skin
side of the fish up.
To freshen salt fish allow ta
soak in sour milk for four hours, ,
