Cook It Frozen ! ®
Just Minutes Until Mealtime ®
Easy to Prepare:
Alaska frozen seafood can be quickly and easily prepared without thawing. Here's how:
- Heat a heavy nonstick skillet or ridged stovetop grill pan over medium-high heat
- rush both sides of frozen fish with olive, canola, peanut or B grapeseed oil
- Place fish in heated pan and cook, uncovered, about 3 minutes, until browned
- Turn fish over, season with spices, and cover the skillet tightly
- Reduce heat to medium, and cook 6 to 8 minutes more until opaque throughout
Equip Yourself with the Right Equipment: For stovetop grilling and sauteuing, use a heavy nonstick skillet or ridged stovetop grill pan. Test the Temperature: Pans, grill and oven/broiler must be hot (around 400F) before you start cooking. To test the temperature of a stovetop pan, sprinkle a few drops of water on the skillet; if they immediately pop off the surface, the pan is ready.
Check the Oil: Using a pastry brush, lightly brush frozen fish with olive, canola, peanut, grapeseed, soy or safflower oil. These oils work best for high-heat cooking. (Do not use butter, sunflower or corn oil, as they will burn at high heat.)
Spare the Spices: When sauteuing or stovetop grilling, avoid seasoning the fish with dry spices before it is placed in the pan. (Since the pan is very hot, the spices will burn and stick to the pan.) It is best to season seafood after you flip it.
