Re: Why are my groupers and snappers cooking into rubber??

Correct on the oil. I prefer grape seed oil OR Extra Light Olive Oil. ELOO does not have the suspended solids like EVOO (which has a greenish cast to it)--which causes scorching at lower temps. ELOO will have a light golden color. An easy way to tell if the oil is at a good temp is to drop a few pieces of fresh cracked pepper in and if it sizzles, it's ready. If it sinks, not hot enough. An electric cook top is the most difficult to regulate the heat. Slowly increase the heat until desired temp reached. If too hot...remove pan for 30 seconds as element is turned down. Good eats!
