How to Properly Thaw Frozen Fish

Having frozen fish on hand is an excellent way to enjoy delicious, healthful lean protein whenever you want. Here’s what you need to know to properly thaw frozen fish.


Key Takeaways

  • Start with the fish solidly frozen. Don’t pre-thaw in the fridge.
  • Don’t remove the vacuum-packaging before thawing. Thawing fish “naked” under water makes it waterlogged.
  • Use only cold tap water to thaw as this minimizes the risk of bacterial growth.
  • Use the thawed fish immediately to ensure best results!
