Roasted vegetables are delicious, but the key is roasting them for longer than you think is necessary, as it can result on either being hard and undercooked or mushy. So, you need to cook them for even longer (past the mushy stage) until the moisture is removed and they begin to brown.
Crispy Fish Skin
For crispy fish skin, always follow the three-step method.
1) Scrape the skin with the back of a knife to dry it out.
2) Put it in a hot pan with fat skin down, and press it until it stops trying to curl.
3) Put the whole pan in the oven, and roast until done. Perfectly crispy skin every time!
Save that bacon fat
Save that bacon fat.
Filter cooled (but still liquid) bacon fat through a paper towel into a coffee mug or heat-resistant container. It stays fresh uncovered in the fridge for months. Use it anywhere you’d use butter, lard, or oil. It makes great gravy and is also perfect for sautéing veggies, especially leafy stuff like kale and spinach. Just remember that bacon fat is salty, so you’ll want to adjust your recipe for that.
