I cook them either in my garage or out on the deck in an electric pan. You can fry, steam, saute or boil in that pan and I love it. Fish, shrimp, garlic, onions almost everything that would go on a stovetop that would leave an odor is cooked in that pan.

It is part of the cooking process.  I love the aroma of everything I cook so it does not bother me.  I know some people who do not cook fish and will only eat it in a restaurant because they say it smells.  To me I like to have the aromas linger in the air while eating.

 

As for removing the odors, you could try opening windows on all sides of house for cross ventilation which would clear it out.  And keep doors to all other rooms shut to keep it from going there in the first place.  I do this automatically if I fry things so the frying odors do not get into bedrooms & clothes.

It’s the smell of health.

Now meat cooking, oil splattering everywhere?  That’s icky.

We have a Sharper Image air purifier when I need it.  I also use sugar cookie or apple scented candles.

I roast my veggies in the oven - delicious, but it does produce an odor that is offensive to me, particularly the next day.  Currently, I spray Febreeze around the house, and it seems to dissipate the smell pretty quick, or at least by the next morning.

Don't boil them or cook them to death.  Quickly stir fry, roast in the oven or sousvide them!

Place a small bowl of vinegar out on your counter. It absorbs and obliviates the odor.
