You might be suffering from a little too much information from a co-worker or too little attention from the boss. Being defensive only perpetuates the issue. Rather than tooting your own horn, take a cue from older and wiser friends. Take out any frustrations in the kitchen and turn your formidable skills to a slightly more difficult dish like pan-fried halibut steak with light green sauce. The trick is to fry the fish ever so slightly for a browned and deliciously crisp texture.
