What is the safest way to thaw frozen sushi-grade salmon?
High-quality sushi-grade fish can be purchased fresh or frozen. When thawing frozen food, there is a safe method to do this. Many frozen fish fillets come in a vacuum-sealed package. The easiest method is to allow the fish to thaw on a paper towel-lined sheet pan in the refrigerator. Cut one side of the package to allow air to flow and help quickly defrost the fish. When you thaw inside a refrigerator, it keeps the fish out of the. Temperature danger zone. You want the fish to be cool, flexible and not icy before using in your dish. Do not refreeze the fish, as the texture and quality of the tuna will not be as good. For more on thawing safety click here.
