The number of fish that can be served at a restaurant depends on the type of fish, the type, size and cooking method used, and the temperature of the meat.
Some fish will have more or less than 100 per cent of its original weight.
The amount of fish may vary from one restaurant to the next, and depending on how many fish are on offer, the amount of sauce added may be more than what is allowed under the restaurant’s code of conduct.
The Globe and Mail spoke to a number of restaurant owners and chefs about the differences between serving fish at restaurants that have a fish count above 100 per 100 per kg and those that do not.
One of the biggest differences is that a lot of fish from one species can be more expensive than others.
It is also common to have multiple fish dishes that have different sizes and shapes, as well as different flavours, according to chef and chef-owner Chris DePasquale, who has been serving fish in Montreal for more than 15 years.
“If you’re serving more than one type of salmon, you’re going to have to order it all in the same dish,” he said.
“When you order a steak, you have to specify whether it’s a ribeye or a head and tail steak.
“We’re very careful about that, but if we have to, it’s all in a bottle and served right away.” “
DePascas said the restaurant industry generally doesn’t want to add too much sauce to a fish dish. “

DePascas said the restaurant industry generally doesn’t want to add too much sauce to a fish dish.
“The more we can add, the better.
We don’t want it to be a little too much,” he added.
A lot of restaurants are also worried about the effects of too much salt, according for example to chef-and chef-owners of the French Laundry restaurant chain.
“Salt can affect the flavour of the fish,” said co-owner Sylvain Gautier, who added that the salt adds a salty flavour to the dish.
When he started his restaurant in 2012, he started with a large amount of salt, but after the restaurant opened in 2016, the salt level increased to about 30 per cent.
“This was due to the saltiness of the salt water,” he explained.
Some chefs and restaurateurs are concerned about the impact of over-salting fish in restaurants, and that the amount is not being met by the restaurants. “
But in the end, we have the highest salt level in Montreal.”

“I don’t think there’s any danger, because the salt in the water is always fine,” said DePasca.
But you don’t know what you’re getting when you’re over-sanitizing.” “
As long as it’s within the rules and guidelines, it should be fine.
But you don’t know what you’re getting when you’re over-sanitizing.”
In addition to the concern about the salt content, chefs and restaurant owners said it is a real problem when they add salt to their fish dishes.
“It takes a lot longer to cook and the fish tends to be overcooked.
The fish needs more time to cook, but the fish is overcooked because it’s being overcooked by salt,” said Gautiers.
“A good fish that’s not overcooked is just too tasty.”
Some fish dishes are also served with sauces that can make them taste like they are from another species.
“That’s not necessarily bad, but I don’t like it.
I prefer to cook with fish that I have personally tasted.
I want the food to be real, to be authentic,” said chef DePASQUALE.
“Salad and fish can be very different.”
De Pasquale said he does not eat too much seafood in Montreal, and his menu is always packed with fish.
“No one’s getting their fill of that,” he laughed.
De Pasqua also said that salt has to be added to fish dishes because the environment is changing.
“They have a different pH in the oceans, which is changing the pH of the ocean,” he stated.
“Fish are changing their pH.
It’s not something you can easily adjust with a salt.
De Pascas also pointed out that fish is a major source of protein for a lot to people. “
And if you’re not able to do that, then you have an environmental problem.”
De Pascas also pointed out that fish is a major source of protein for a lot to people.
“To get the protein you want, you need fish, you don of course need to eat it,” he stressed.
“In general, if you are eating seafood, you shouldn’t be eating it at all.”
