When preparing fresh and delicate fish like this tub gurnard, frying it in the best possible way simply yields a better taste and juicier end result. Mycryo®, which is pure cocoa butter in powder form, is ideal for frying and sautéing delicate fish, meats and even vegetables. It seals the ingredients with a natural film of cocoa butter, keeping the ingredients from losing any juices or flavours. On top, Mycryo® has a neutral taste and makes the natural flavours of the ingredients come out beautifully.
