How do you fix a food fail?
Wash the food
I’m notorious for over-salting. It’s not always fixable, but sometimes I actually wash the food to get off some of the excess salt. Raw foods can be washed and then spun dry in a salad spinner; cooked foods get rinsed and then quickly sauteed to dry them off. Adding a good squeeze of lemon helps balance the saltiness, too.
