Ancient Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu once said, 'Governing a great nation is like cooking a small fish -too much handling will spoil it.' This means that when cooking fish, sometimes, you have to leave it alone. Too much tossing and turning can indeed damage it.

Eating fish is good for everyone, except, of course, those who may be allergic to certain species. Still, including fish on your regular diet is healthy. The fats in these wiggly creatures, especially the fatty varieties like salmon and tuna, are believed to help prevent heart diseases. Some say it can even keep diseases like Alzheimer's at bay.

There are tons of fish recipes you can find out there. However, you have to make sure you get it fresh. How do you know it's fresh? Well, the first step is to look at it. You can easily tell if it has just come out of the water a few hours ago if it has bright eyes and firm flesh. Once you're done looking, you have to smell it. Of course, you don't have to go through this step if you abhor the smell of fish. However, if you're up to it, have a quick sniff of the fish. It should smell sweet and make you feel like you're standing on the beach. If you smell something very 'fishy' or strong, shun it and look for something else.

Certainly, there could be days when you won't have the time to buy fish and cook it on the same day. You may only have time for one or the other. To keep the fish you've bought fresh until the time you decide to cook it, put in the freezer of your fridge. However, make sure it doesn't sit there for more than two days. If you only have time to buy your fish on the first day of the week and plan to cook it over the weekend, be sure to wrap it with freezer paper so it doesn't spoil fast.

Before cooking fish that has been stored in the freezer, make certain that it's thawed first by putting it under running water or dipping it in tap water for a few minutes. If you have a microwave oven, you can also stick it there to defrost it. Make sure you cook the fish immediately once it's thawed.

Following these tips will help ensure that the fish dish you'll cook will not give out strange flavors and aromas or worse, cause stomachs to be upset.
