HANDLING AND EATING SEAFOOD
HANDLING FROZEN SEAFOOD
Your fish has been handled with care since it came out of the ocean.
With a little care, it will get to your plate tasting as fresh as the day it was caught!
When you pickup your share of Port Orford Sustainable Seafood, it will need to be placed back in a freezer within 40 minutes to prevent thawing. We recommend bringing a small cooler or insulated bag for pickup.
As long as it stays frozen, your seafood will last indefinitely.
READY TO EAT?
Once thawed, remove seafood from packaging and wash off any liquid that may have gathered. We highly recommend thawing your fish overnight in the refrigerator for the next evening’s dinner. This is the best way to preserve the taste and texture of your fish.
DO NOT thaw your fish in warm water or the microwave. This will damage the taste and texture.
We know you’re busy and sometimes thawing the night before is not an option. Another recommended method is to let the vacuum-sealed package of frozen fish sit under a lightly running stream of cold water, or in a bowl of cold water. It may take up to 90 minutes to thaw a one pound fillet.
Remember, all our seafood is sashimi grade, which means that it is safe to eat without cooking at all. For your enjoyment, please take care to not overcook your portions. Click here to learn more about handling and thawing frozen seafood.
