3. Bake Salmon in a Better Way

When baking or grilling salmon, you may have been irritated to see bits of the fish stick to the grill.

You can now avoid salmon from sticking to the grill with one very simple trick. Simply place the salmon on a layer of sliced lemons. Since the salmon is not touching the grill, it won’t stick to it.

4. Reuse Ketchup Bottles

Instead of throwing ketchup bottles away, you can reuse them. Once the ketchup bottle is empty, you can use it as a dispenser for the batter. These bottles can be used to hold the batter and dispense it while you are cooking.

5. Use Oil While Making Meatballs or Burgers

When making burgers or meatballs, you should use a bit of oil on your hands to stop the meat from sticking to your hands. With oil, the meatballs also take on a better shape and texture. The exterior will become perfectly crisp when you cook meatballs and burgers made this way.

There are many more cooking hacks that you can make good use of. For example, mason jars can be used to make perfectly shaped burger patties by using the jar or its lid as your mold.
