To avoid catching the fish in the refrigerator, keep it in a closed container, wrapped in foil or frozen in a package. It is even better to cook it right away, brought from a store or from fishing, because fresh fish are the most delicious.
Before cleaning and treating the fish, keep it for 20-30 minutes in cold water with the addition of vinegar. Like acetic water, there is a beer. The fish in it seem to be marinated and subsequently fry almost without smelling.
