How to Thaw Frozen Fish

How to Thaw Frozen Fish

Wild-caught Alaskan salmon is one of my favorite foods. It is an excellent source of high-quality protein and essential omega-3 fatty acids, lowering the risk of heart attack, stroke, cancer, inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, and mental and emotional problems. Wild salmon is available fresh, frozen and canned, and according to the National Fisheries Institute, freezing fish and other seafood will cause minimal loss of the health-protective omega-3 fatty acids they contain. To thaw frozen salmon (or any other type of frozen fish), place the original, sealed package under a stream of cold water or put in a basin of cold, clean water. When the fish has just become pliable it is properly thawed and ready to cook. (It’s okay if the fish still seems slightly frozen.) Another method is to put the fish in your refrigerator to thaw – timing depends on the thickness of fish, but check the progress every few hours. Do not thaw frozen fish by setting it out at room temperature, submerging it in hot water or defrosting it in a microwave oven.
