I think the kind of fish is everything too RF. Salmon stinks to me, and tastes "fishy" however it's cooked. Other fish shouldn't smell "fishy" before it's cooked or when cooking it.

As far as taste is concerned I much prefer farm raised salmon over "wild caught" salmon. Tastes a lot less fishy.

Most places I live at have a window of some kind in the kitchen near an outlet and the window. I use one of those small clamp on electric fans and clamp it somewhere on the cabinet trim above the fryer pointing out toward an open window. The fryer is of coarse placed near the window. I also turn on my HVAC whole house fan. I custom order Nordic Air brand carbon impregnated furnace filters for my furnace. They do pretty well at removing odors.

What I do is turn on my exhaust fan on the stove full blast and then run through the house with the Febreeze after I fry the fish. It takes care of the odors. I had to go out of the house one day to get more breading and came back in the middle of frying and was bowled over by the scent left behind. I didn't know it was that bad. After that I got the Frbreeze out and was good to go after that. The curtains were the worst for keeping the smell in.

A lot of kitchen range hoods aren't vented, so the filtering is useless. Fabreze is pretty good but like you say, you have to run around spraying up in the air like the fresh air nymph, lol. In 20 years, drones equipped with Fabreze will take off...spray...go back...land...recharge and load up on Fabreze...take off...spray Fabreze...fly back.

I don't think we have ever fried fish. The fishy odor I believe is mostly associated with fatty/oily type fish and of course fish that aren't fresh.

I don't think you will have to wait 20 years. I give it 2. My vent hood goes outside and the neighbors comment on what smelled so good the other day, it had to be me cooking something good. I like to do roasts so they can be used for more than one meal. My Mother was one for making things stretch. We never knew we were poor growing up. She tried to keep that hidden from us. Thinking back, I know now we were poor. After all, who freezes leftovers with a plan to make it into something yummy later on?

I have tried having a large bowl of white vinegar out when making "stinky" things. I prefer to cook those things outside, however.


I've never associated leftovers with one's financial situation. Growing up, leftovers were planned (my mom hated to cook, so if she could cook once and serve the same thing again, she took that route). It made her life easier. I tend to do the same thing--make enough for several meals. I figure if I'm going to heat up the oven, I might as well make two roasted chickens/pork roasts/whatever. It doesn't use any more electricity to cook two than it does to cook one. But then, our electricity rates are the highest in North America. We try to cut back on the electricity bill whenever we can.

Our oven vents outside too so my neighbors must smell our food as well....
