My query is regarding fish in general and specifically types like salmon, tuna and trout.
How long should fish be brined for? Some recipes say 4 hours and others say 8-12 hours.
Should the saline solution be 6% as usual.
How do you know if it has bined properly? Do you expect it to be plump and juicy as with poultry or how exactly?
To answer your question, my goal in brining is to simply get as much salt as possible into the cells of the fish. . I do not care about taste, flavour or anything else, I just want salt to penetate into all parts of the fish. As you know if you want salt in your meat brining is the best method and better then normal and slow cooking which do not absorb to the same extent and in the same way.
