Tips on how to Grill, Freeze and Thaw the fish:

    1. Prior to starting the grill. Pour a small amount of vegetable oil on a paper towel and lightly coat the grill rack. This will help from having the fish stick to your rack. (If the grill's already started, it's usually too hot to get your hand close enough to do it -- plus not too safe with the oil.
    2. Preheat the grill to medium-high.
    3. Brush or pat both sides of the fish lightly with olive oil.
    4. Cook without turning on first side for 2 to 3 minutes.
    5. Rotate fish 45-degrees on the grill (a one-quarter turn). Cook for 2 to 3 minutes longer.
    6. Flip fish to other side and finish cooking time.

Additional time cooked in the microwave

If you're not sure grilled fish is done, you can cook it in the microwave oven for another minute or two. (This can overcook your fish very quickly and make the fish dry or rubbery textured, so watch the timing.)

    1. Cook fish or seafood for half the required time on a barbecue grill. This gives the fish the attractive grill marks and some grilled flavor.
    2. Transfer the fish to a microwave-safe baking dish and cook 1 to 2 minutes to finish cooking the fish. Press or flake with a fork to test for doneness.

Remember, fish continues to cook after it is removed from the microwave oven so allow 1 to 2 minutes standing time before you cook it any longer.

Tips on how to Freeze Fish

Rinse under cold, running water until water runs clear. Pat dry with paper towels.

Wrap tightly in plastic wrap, squeezing out all the air.

Wrap again in aluminum foil.

Write contents and date on a freezer label or strip of masking tape.

Freeze as quickly as possible.

For best results, thaw and use within two weeks.

Tips on how to Thaw Fish

Thaw overnight in the refrigerator. Do not leave out on counter to thaw.

Thin fillets and steaks will thaw within 8 to 10 hours in the refrigerator.

Cook immediately after thawing.
