You know, I was reading about the proper way to select fish and it dawned on me that it can be easily translated into selecting a hottie. 1. Ensure that the eyes are bright with no sign of cloudiness 2. The flesh should be firm and pink 3. The skin should not be slimy 4. The gills should be nice and red 5. It should not smell like fish. 6. If selecting a live fish, it should be energetic. Avoid fish that appear lethargic.
