    Fishy smell from a cast iron pan??

    Hiyi Weird question, but how do you get the smell out of a cast iron pan?! I bought a lovely one second hand last year and as my first experience with a pan like this its fab. But, it smells of fish. I'm not a big fan of fish, especially when cooking up a big fried breakfast after the night...
