Food tips on frozen fish versus fresh

My own personal thoughts on frozen fish versus fresh

Frozen fish fillets can be just as good as fresh as long as they have been snapped frozen professionally; in other words, while at sea on the fish processing trawlers. The rapid process used (10kg boxes in matter if seconds!) ensures the ice crystals within the flesh are minute; this allows for minimum water absorption and destruction of the flesh. If then transported home and stored correctly, when cooked (or defrosted) it should then be virtually indistinguishable from fresh fish fillets.

In fact frozen, in many cases can be better than so called ‘fresh’, unless you are getting it straight from the sea that is, and it is stored between - 1ºC to 1ºC of course, but how many times does that happen? Did you know:

  • If fresh fish is kept on ice from the time it is caught it has a ten to fourteen day shelf life?

  • Or that for every hour it is not kept on ice that it loses a day off its shelf life?

But normally by the time it reaches us in a supermarket, all nicely filleted, packed etc, you will be lucky to get three days before it starts to go sticky, smelly and ready for the rubbish bin!
