How to Properly
Thaw Frozen Fish

WRITTEN BY: Nicole Gaffney

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.

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!
