Don’t use butter or olive oil for high-temp cooking

5 Cooking Tips And Tricks You'd Wish You Knew About Before

Never use butter or olive oil in a super hot pan ― it burns very quickly and sometimes might even catch on fire. This happens because both of these have low smoke points, i.e. they burn very easily. Rather, use peanut or vegetable oil anytime you’re cooking with high heat. This prevents it from burning and giving your food an off flavor.

Completely read your recipe before you start cooking

When you first start cooking, don’t just gather every ingredient and just go at it. This forces you to turn off your burner to dice or grate something. But, if you just read the recipe all the way through, you would have done all of that stuff beforehand and saved a lot of time.

Remember that acid brightens flavours and brings bland food to life

Citrus juice is that secret ingredient which makes almost everything better. Be it chicken, salmon, broccoli, black beans or corn – the list is endless. Most veggies and meats can get a lot brighter with a quick squeeze of lemon or lime.

If you do add too much salt, throw a quartered potato

If you go overboard with the salt while preparing a dish, mainly soup, throw in a quartered potato and stir for 10 minutes. The potato absorbs a good amount of salt and makes the recipe taste less salty.

Don’t be tempted to over-mix your cake batters

For baking purposes, don’t over-mix the batter. Don’t just go about beating the shit out of the eggs and sugar. However, when you add the dry ingredients, mix them enough to combine.  Excess of it will make your end product dense and chewy.
