Arghh...I love dried fish but man oh man...the house really stinks after cooking it. I usually cook it outside on our grill's side burner. But since it's raining or shall I say just showering after 81 days of no rain, I can't cook outside. We don't have a covered porch. I ended up cooking the jeproks dried fish inside. It's our viand along with the pork adobo for lunch this afternoon when my friends came by for a visit.
I know my husband will complain of the smell when he gets home if I don't do something about it. He don't mind me cooking it but I myself can't stand the smell. So I opened the kitchen windows and back sliding door and have the vent on high. After frying the dried fish, I placed the hot pan outside, wiped the stove overhead vent with soapy sponge, cleaned the stove top, and sprayed the whole house with glade fresh linen scent. I left for door and window opened for hours and so far it worked.
I did not light any candles as there were kids playing and once they see candles they'll be all over it and I don't want any accidents. I was thinking of boiling a lemon or lime and just let it sit on the stove but I don't have lime. Good thing though that when hubby came home, he did not even have a hint that I cook dried fish if I didn't told him. So I guess the trick of cleaning the stove top and vent and spraying a room scent helped eliminate the odor.
Do you have any idea of eliminating the smell of dried fish after cooking? Care to share to tips so I can also share it to my friends here who loves to eat dried fish :-)
