What is the best way to thaw and prepare my fish?
We recommend you keep your fish frozen until the day before you plan to cook it and thaw it overnight in your refrigerator. When in a hurry you may submerge your vacuum-packed fillet or portions in cool water for twenty five minutes.

As a general rule, for each inch of thickness allow ten minutes of cooking. Please don't overcook your fish – fillets and portions continue to cook after taken off heat. The fillet should be slightly translucent when finished. Preparation techniques include grilling on high heat, baking at 400 degrees F, or marinating and sauteing in a hot skillet.
