A good trick for avoiding that "fishy" smell when you cook fish indoors is to leave a small, open dish of bleach in the kitchen while you cook. This works best if it's up high. I put mine on top of the fridge (this also prevents me from accidentally knocking it over while I cook). Leave it there for about an hour after you've cooked the fish and when you clean it up, you'll notice an oily layer on top. Sounds weird, but it works!
