fish and sellfishes
In the paper, the function of using salt is studied to process and to cook various fish and seafood. The primary use of salt in processing fish is to remove dirt and slime on the skins, and also to deodorize fish smell. In cooking, salt is effective to keep the good texture of fish meat, and salted water can be used to defreeze frozen fish. Also salt can be used to paralyze living fish. To study the details of using salt, processing and cooking methods for 39 different kinds of fish and seafood have been closely studied. As a conclusion of the study, it is confirmed that the function of using salt is not merely for seasoning, or rather important for processing and cooking fish in various ways.
