    All of your Defrosting Questions Answered

    At Premier Catch, we are obsessed with quality and convenience. By flash-freezing, portioning and individually vacuum-packing each piece of fish, we guarantee your seafood is fresh, full of flavor and giving you maximum health benefit. 

    Now that you've got fish in your freezer, we went ahead and answered all of your defrosting questions below to ensure your meals are safe and delicious.  

  • “I have frozen fish that I want to cook tonight. What should I do?”
  • The simplest way to thaw fish is to move the product from the freezer to the fridge in the morning or the night before you plan to cook it.   

  • “I have fish in the freezer that I want to eat now. What should I do?”
  • If you need your fish thawed within 30 minutes to a few hours, keep the frozen fish in its plastic package and place it in a big bowl, covered with water that’s cooler than room temperature. Change the water every 20 or 30 minutes or until the fish is fully thawed. Make sure the water temperature is cool, warm or hot water will mess up the texture of the fish. 

  • “Can I cook the fish directly from frozen?”
  • Yes! You can place a piece of frozen salmon in the airfryer for 15 minutes, rather than 7 minutes, and it will be delicious. One of our Premier Catch Athletes, Olivia Moultrie, swears by this method when she is short on time!

  • “Is it safe to microwave frozen fish?”
  • No. We do not recommend microwaving any frozen fish. The dramatic heat

    change can change the texture and ruin the product.

  • “Can I thaw half the pack of scallops?”
  • Yes! We suggest partially thawing a package of scallops and breaking off a portion before it is completely thawed. You can continue to thaw the smaller portion in a ziploc bag and seal the rest in its original package. 

    Once your fish is ready to cook or while you're waiting for it to thaw, check out the Premier Catch Recipe Blog for easy and tasty recipe ideas and inspiration.
