Tonight I cooked fish. Normally I’ll use ghee or coconut oil in a pan to cook eggs, chicken, etc. but sometimes I just need a little bit of non-stick goodness. While I could get out the jar of ghee or coconut oil, it’s just easier to get the Misto spray bottle and spritz a little bit of olive oil in a pan so the fish doesn’t stick.
Hardcore science people will say that olive oil is more fragile than coconut oil/ghee/lard and will oxidize more quickly. Well, this is true, but again, I am not deep frying my fish in olive oil, just coating the pan so the food doesn’t stick. So I’m not worried about the oxidation as much as the convenience of a paleo-friendly oil (unlike canola oil) in a quick and easy spray bottle. The bottle is easy to refill and it’s also more convenient to use olive oil you already have vs. buying a dedicated olive oil spray from the store.
Just make sure you don’t put coconut oil, ghee, or lard in these bottles as these fats are typically solid at room temperature!
Click any of these pictures to buy these bottles from my Amazon store. A few cents to me, same price for you!
