Fish and Meat

Can you please tell me if it’s mutar to cut an onion with a pareve knife, fry the onions in an eino ben yomo meat pan, then pour the onions/oil into a bowl of tuna fish?


Yes, the accepted custom is not to be concerned with “taam” [just flavor] of meat and fish mixing together. Hence, most do not have separate vessels for fish and meat.
