How to Remove Fish Odors From an Oven

While baked fish is a healthy meal that is low on fat and high in protein, you may discover a lingering fishy odor even after you have put away the fish. Oily fish leave behind particularly fishy odors that can stick around for a few days. If you have recently made fish and need to get rid of the fishy smell, take action to freshen up your oven and kitchen.

Fish can leave a distinctly unpleasant aroma in your kitchen.

Step 1

Turn the oven to its lowest heat setting.

Step 2

Fill a baking pan with 1 inch of water.

Step 3

Add a small amount of lemon juice until the water smells strongly of lemon.

Step 4

Place the baking pan into the heated oven.

Step 5

Leave the baking pan in the oven for an hour, checking periodically to ensure the water hasn't completely evaporated.

Step 6

Remove the pan from the oven. At this point, the smell should be gone.
