Auto-defrost freezers often incorporate heating elements that melt frost from the freezer’s interior. Storing fish in auto-defrost freezers can expose filets to repeated partial thaw and refreeze, which can cause or worsen freezer burn. To minimize this, store your fish in the center of your freezer away from heat elements or in a manual defrost freezer.
Remove frozen filet from vacuum packaging and thaw in refrigeration. Using a microwave or warm water to accelerate thawing will cause loss of texture and flavor. For spontaneous meal times, fish can be cooked frozen.
Rinse and pat dry first. Halibut is skinless, but wild Alaskan salmon filets should be prepared with the skin on to maximize health benefits. Salmon and halibut both cook quickly and continue to cook after being removed from heat. To avoid the common mistake of over-cooking, a filet should be removed from heat as soon as it begins to flake. Our fish is sushi-grade, so enjoy it as rare as you like.
