my wife hates fish smells too. we simply leave it to cool and wash with a lemon juice then wipe . it seems to reduce most smells significantly. do of course use an kitchen extractor etc.
some smells do like to cling try putting a half lemon juice (or sliced lemon ) in a small bowl and heat on medium for 60 seconds. leave 2 minutes. the steam? should help reduce fish smells or at least help Tolower them.

    After cooking, put a cup of lemon juice (Jif) mixed with water and boil for a few minutes, then wipe down inside of the microwave. This takes away the smell of fish.

    Edit: I've been beaten as well lol !!

    I've been beaten to it again EJ. A sliced lemon or lemon juice in a small amout of water works well as does bi-carb. or popping some distilled vinegar in a jug/bowl and 'zapping' that.

    fresh lemons in a bowl cut up and water turn on for 2Min's and the smell will disappear? and when cooking a cauliflower squeeze some lemon over the top make it with and you do not have the smell when cooking?

    Put some lemon juice in a jug or bowl with about half a pint of hot water and then put it on for 10 mins - it does help
