Neither my husband nore I like fish but we LOVE this one!! Thanks for posting!!! The only thing I would add is instead of saying "Once the oil is almost smoking" I would say or add (to test if oil is ready, put the handle end of a wooden utensil in the oil when oil is the right temp small bubbles will form around the utensil)
Other than that there is NOTHING I would add :)
