STORING & HANDLING
You should never allow frozen seafood to thaw until you are ready to use it, as refreezing seafood severely alters its quality.
- Please use care when taking your VP portions and fillets out of your box and into your freezer. The more they are handled the more susceptible they are to tares and air leaks which can lead to freezer burn.
For best results thaw overnight or for 12 to 24 hrs. A longer thaw cycle will help preserve texture but thawing under cold water for 15 – 20 minutes works in a pinch. Be sure to remove the frozen fish from the vacuum packaging eliminate excessive moisture build up and prevent the possibility of bacteria forming.
Once thawed, you can store your fish in your refrigerator for 3 to 4 days before cooking. However, it is tastier if cooked immediately.
