Get your pan hot.
Some cooks recommend heating the pan before putting oil in. Others put the oil into a cold pan and heat both together. Either way, you want to get both nice and hot before food goes in. If the oil isn’t hot enough, the food will soak it up instead of sizzling in it, and it won’t taste as good.
