Is it possible to fix fish without the fishy smell?

Featured Recipe: Tilalpia with Lime Butter Sauce
The off-putting fishy smell from frying fish is about the freshness of the filet. If your fish smells fishy raw, it's only going to get worse when you cook it; which in turn will taste fishy and leave that unpleasant odor in your kitchen. I almost always buy my fish from the fishmonger's open case. That way as soon as it is handed to you, you can take a sniff and determine it's freshness. Tilapia is almost always pre-frozen, so ask when it was thawed.
I also buy my fish the same day I'm going to cook it, ensuring that it is as fresh as possible.
Farm-raised tilapia also comes in individually wrapped, quick frozen filets. These are handy for grab and cook dinners, but they are not my favorite. Even with the mild, whitefish, I prefer freshly purchased fish. That way you can pick out the fillets you want, eye them and even give them a sniff before they are purchased.
Tilapia with Lime Butter Sauce is a delicious and quick dinner that won't leave anything but good memories in the kitchen. The easy-to-make lime butter sauce is the perfect compliment to the mild white fish. Serve it with steamed green beans and rice pilaf for a dinner that goes together in just 20 minutes.

What you're saying..
I purchased Cheap Fast Good, and received it last week. I started cooking from the book last Wednesday. With the exception of the ham I purchased for Christmas Day, I have cooked from this book 1-2 times per day. Let me say, this is the best cookbook I have, and has recipes that my family loves!!! Thank you so much for the cookbook. I'm hoping I can purchase Desperation Dinners soon, and if it is anything like Cheap Fast Good, it will be another favorite.
