    Important Notes when prepping and cooking fish:
    When seasoning the fish is important to have your hands completely dry to control the seasoning applied.
    Always check to see if fish is cooked using a thin metal skewer, it should be warm for medium rare consistency.

Important Notes regarding selecting fish:
Check carefully for darkness or dryness on the skin and flesh of fish. Off odors or smells in the piece of fish should be avoided. Fish should be vibrant and smell fresh. Farm raised or wild is ideal.
