Eric Ripert on Cooking Fish

A year or so ago, Chef Eric Ripert (one of my favorite celebrity chefs) did a sponsorship with Cuisinart and a series on cooking using only a toaster oven- ‘Get Toasted.’  Some may raise an eyebrow but I really appreciate these videos for the fundamentals of basic and simple cooking techniques.  In this episode, Chef Ripert broils a Red Snapper fillet using a technique that I have adapted when testing the doneness of fish.  In his thick French accent Eric scolds,  “If the skewer is very hot, you burn yourself and you are punished for it.”
