Recipe Notes

  • If fresh fish is available, purchase fish the day or day before you are going to cook it.
  • If fresh isn’t available, buy frozen instead of previously frozen so you can control freshness and keep it frozen until you need it.
  • Frozen fish fillets are great to keep on hand in the freezer. You can defrost them overnight in the fridge or pull from from the freezer and put them in an ice bath (in the package if they are individually wrapped or in a sealed Ziploc) for about 30 minutes.
