I really love cooking seafood, but I really hate listening to husbro complain about how the house “smells like fish.” (Fans and open windows only do so much.) I’m not going to quit searing scallops, but I can will up a pot o’ pleasant smells to eradicate the oceanic stench that accompanies their preparation.
According to Epicurious, “#fishsmell tea” is a cinch to make: combine a cinnamon stick with a teaspoon each of cloves and ground ginger in a pot. Fill that thing up with water, bring to a boil, and simmer until the funky odours subside. You are now free to to cook all the finned and shelled creatures you desire, without alienating your loved ones.
