Seafood Information – When is it done?

How Will I Know When Seafood is Done?

Fish are cooked when the flesh loses its translucent (almost clear) appearance and becomes opaque (can't see through).  To test for doneness, gently pierce fish with a fork in the thickest part of the flesh where it takes the longest to cook.  If it flakes easily, it is done.  You must remember not to overcook!  Cooking fish at too high a temperature or for too long a time toughens them, dries them out and destroys their fine flavor.
