HOW TO THAW FROZEN FISH
Thawing any kind of meat is definetly hardwork, right from the long wait for the meat to come to room temperature to the unpleasant smell that the meat sometimes emits.
Now, I hate it if my fish smells bad even after all the care taken during thawing.
I have tried everything from keeping the fish in running water to submerging it in a bowl of water or simply tossing it in the refrigerator some hours prior.
But with time I learnt the perfect way to thaw fish.
It tastes better, looks fresh like its come from the ocean and not the freezer.
THINGS YOU’LL NEED :
Frozen fish fillets
Full fat Milk
Take the fish fillets out of the freezer.
If the fish is packed in a plastic bag, then hold the bag under running tap water till the fish comes lose and can slide easily from the plastic bag.
Rinse the fish fillets in tap water.
Pat dry the fish with a kitchen towel.
In a shallow dish, place the fillets and pour milk till the fish is submerged.
Cover and keep in refrigerator till the fish thaws completely.
When thawed, remove and pat dry the fillets.
Do not rinse.
Discard the milk, as it is not suitable for use.
