Tips on how to Grill, Freeze and Thaw the fish:
Prior to starting the grill. Pour a small
amount of vegetable oil on a paper towel and lightly coat the grill rack.
This will help from having the fish stick to your rack. (If the grill's
already started, it's usually too hot to get your hand close enough to do it
-- plus not too safe with the oil.
Preheat the grill to medium-high.
Brush or pat both sides of the fish lightly
with olive oil.
Cook without turning on first side for 2 to 3
Rotate fish 45-degrees on the grill (a
one-quarter turn). Cook for 2 to 3 minutes longer.
Flip fish to other side and finish cooking
Additional time cooked in the microwave
If you're not sure grilled fish is done, you can cook it in the microwave oven
for another minute or two. (This can overcook your fish very quickly and make
the fish dry or rubbery textured, so watch the timing.)
- Cook fish or seafood for half the required
time on a barbecue grill. This gives the fish the attractive grill marks
and some grilled flavor.
- Transfer the fish to a microwave-safe baking
dish and cook 1 to 2 minutes to finish cooking the fish. Press or flake
with a fork to test for doneness.
Remember, fish continues to cook after it is
removed from the microwave oven so allow 1 to 2 minutes standing time before you
cook it any longer.
Tips on how to Freeze Fish
Rinse under cold, running water until water runs
clear. Pat dry with paper towels.
Wrap tightly in plastic wrap,
squeezing out all the air.
Wrap again in aluminum foil.
Write contents and date on a
freezer label or strip of masking tape.
Freeze as quickly as possible.
For best results, thaw and use
within two weeks.
Tips on how to Thaw Fish
Thaw overnight in the refrigerator. Do not leave out on
counter to thaw.
Thin fillets and steaks will thaw within 8 to 10 hours in the
Cook immediately after thawing.
