There, if your cooking guides are new, you will see that fish cookery methods have turned to the trend of quick cookery. Recipes call for hot ovens or sizzling skillets and cooking times seem impossibly short. There is a reason for this short cooking time. Iowa State Colllge home economists say that muscle tissue contains both collagenous and clastic fibers, of which there are more in some kinds of animal flesh, are very resistant to heat and acids, and demand aging and more savere cooking processes than muscles which contain less of this fiber. In fish, the connective tissue is small in amount and probably contains mostly collagen, the type of fiber that is readily broken down. Because the flesh is a high proportion of water, this collagen is quickly converted to gelatin by the heat, and the result is a too-soft product. Long cooking processes will completely separate the muscle fibers of the fish and the result is too soft to be appetizing. Hence, the newer, faster methods of fish cookery.
