Time Fish Perfectly

Thai Fish Curry

Many recipes tell you to test fish for doneness with a fork: If it flakes easily, it's ready. But sometimes that's too late. Instead, watch the fish carefully and pull it from the heat just when it changes from translucent to opaque, or even a moment before, as we did for Food Network Magazine's Thai Fish Curry. The fish will continue cooking after you take it off the heat.
