So like the inside of my microwave is completely encrusted with marshmallows that are as hard as rock and I've never cleaned my George Forman in the 5 years I've had it?

>encrusted with marshmallows

what the actual shit?

Man, that has like grade A biohazard written all over it... were you expecting to get super powers from the irradiated bacteria?

A microwave is for fucking popcorn and reheating shit, not poppin' marshmallows ya twat!

no fuckin' amount of microwaved water will salvage that shit for you, here's what you do:

  1. insert a full 6- or 12-pack of eggs in microwave, remember the more, the merrier
  2. nuke on high for at least 5 minutes
  3. throw everything (including microwave) in the fucking trash
  4. buy a new microwave and don't use that for marshmallows.... use a damn fireplace like a civilized person

Cooking fish, eating skin by Ettore Boiardi - Sat, 12 Nov 2016 23:24:54 EST ID:pz7SKHu8 No.150116 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

I like fish, but I never really made it myself. Recently I've bought a few salmon filets, each one I've cooked has been better than the last, but I'm sure there are things I could improve on.

>how do you cook fish?
So far I have been pan frying. Skin side down for a few minutes in hot oil, watching the sides, then flip and remove the skin with a knife while cooking the other side for a few minutes, and then finally flip the 'skin' side down so the exposed meat gets some sear from the oil/heat. Then I lit sit on a plate for a min while I put butter and lemon in the pan and mix it up to pour over fish.

>do you eat the skin?
I remove mine, but I've seen people online saying the skin is a crispy tasty treat. Some people say the skin has the bad toxins in it from the dirty water but others say if the fish is from a farm/factory the water is clean and eating the skin is beneficial.

Also tell me what fish you buy and how you make it so that I can expand beyond Salmon (ie - flounder, cod, etc).

If the skin is really crunchy it can be enjoyable.
However, I am not a fan.
Try baking salmon covered in foil with butter and lemon.
Keeps all the juices in and comes out wonderful if you don't overcook.
Salt, pepper and some spices as well.
Salmon is way better when baked or smoked in my opinion.
Also, fish can be made into some amazing soups/stews.
Smoked salmon chowder ;)

i think its a shame to not eat the skin, but obviously its pretty unattractive unless its been cooked right

for sea bass ill season a little flour and dab just the skin side of the fillet in the flour, give it a little pat down and put it, skin-down, in hot oil. Eventually when you more or less see the colour spread through to the bit furthest away from the heat this is where i like to reduce the heat and just flip em over and leave them a minute longer. At this stage you could put some herb butter or such-n-such if you wanna be a bit decadent. Put the butter then flip the fish so the exposed flesh lands directly on the butter

makes the skin lovely and crunchy

BBQ is also a brilliant way to cook fish, sardines especially. Though it can tend to basically deteriorate the skin anyway, depending how lucky/deft you are.

try this next time with salmon
  • put the salmon in the middle of a square of foil, with a decent amount of space to work with
  • seasoning: up to you really. id say a sprinkle of salt, a drop of olive oil, maybe some fresh thyme or lemongrass. none are really needed though
  • preheat the oven to 180C
  • fold the foil, as close to the sides of the salmon fillet(s) as possible, preferably so the very last fold you make can come over the top and then sit underneath, creating a nice little enclosed space. basically youre steaming the fish. or part-steaming, part-baking at the very least
  • cook it for precisely 15 minutes, dont get tempted to do it at any longer, or at any high a temperature. it should have just a little spot of pink (undercooked) towards the middle of the upper surface
  • mix together honey, soy, mustard (english and wholegrain), olive oil ,sesame seeds. You can get creative with it so long a you have the honey and the mustard

>It can cause hormonal changes, along with other things.
Not in levels found in the food supply. And even the effects you claim are dubious. (go ahead, find your naturalnews citation).

>>Damages from industrial farming are easy to restore. A fuck-up from biotech? Not so much.
Ecosystems are not easy to restore. Industrial farming does real, long-term damage. fuck, just look at greenhouse emissions from the meat industry. That's not "easy" to fix.

>Except a scummy software engineer is going to have a lot less potential to do long-term damage than someone in the biotechnological field.
You misunderstand silicon valley's ambitions (they're basically replacing wall street in influence, with far more tools for societal control). But that's very off-topic, so whatever.

>And their solution to the problem? Make a new herbicide to dump on top of roundup! Brilliant. Pile more shit onto shit.
You're confusing weed and insect resistance to RR and BT. You don't know shit, so it's not worth arguing. bleh.

You win, though. We're in the Trump era. Believe whatever you want. Makes no difference. GMO's are evil.

I love how you'll admit the potential for adverse effects, but completely deny that the concentration levels will have any impact when the amount of roundup used varies depending on who applied it. Accumulation of roundup can occur quickly.

Here's some studies since you can't seem to figure out how to properly search for journals:



These not only shows that Roundup can cause development problems in a wide variety of species, but also that Roundup pollution can destroy our environment.

>Here's some studies since you can't seem to figure out how to properly search for journals:

On the first link, you're talking about: A) not surprising effects. and B) Rather large concentrations. 0.8% of just about anything can have detrimental effects in embryo development If you want to inject 0.8% glyphosate in some woman's uterus, have fun. But it's hardly relevant to glyphosate in the food supply.

Second link is broken.

Third link, once again you're talking about large concentrations. These papers aren't bad. They're good. They're very useful because of the ecological implications. Not the food supply.

>ut completely deny that the concentration levels will have any impact when the amount of roundup used varies depending on who applied it. Accumulation of roundup can occur quickly.
I've got a BS in biology. I've worked on farms both organic and conventional.

Weed control is important at the first stages of growth, when the seeds or transplants are still getting established. That's weeks or months before harvest for these kinds of crops. In the mean time, rain washes it away, while UV light degrades the chemical itself.

Generally, when small concentrations of a pollutant have an effect on marine life development, it's a good sign that it can have a similar effect on our development in some way as well. And it's pretty well established that this is the case with glyphosate.

Monsanto's practices that are garbage for soil, you should know this from working on conventional farms. Any non-organic method honestly, since now sewage sludge is spreading nanoplastics, ect. everywhere. Do you realize how many organisms this affects?

>I've got a BS in biology.

No shit.

Otherwise you wouldn't be so defensive about any criticism. You're not really doing much with it if you don't realize the long-term impacts here though.

Anyway, I'm all for expanding the biotech field, it's most likely going to be needed if we can't turn this ship around.

As far as I'm concerned right now though, pro-Monsanto advocates are as dangerous as climate change deniers. Stop treating it like an attack on your field and more of an attack on one corporate entity.
