Why does my fish smell like ammonia?

bella | Jan 22, 2004 08:00 PM

I made a skate wing this evening and one half of it (it was still on the "bone") smelled like ammonia after I cooked it. I vaguely recalled having a similar experience with cod at a restaurant years and years ago. Didn't make me sick--just very unpleasant when I ate it.

Now what makes fish do this?
