We put a lot of attention to detail into getting the best quality salmon to you. Thawing your fish properly is essential to preserve its texture and flavor. Here's the best way to thaw your salmon safely:
Thawing salmon takes time, so plan your meal accordingly. Remove the frozen salmon from the freezer and transfer it to the refrigerator. Allow 12-24 hours of thawing time.
Check the Progress
After several hours, check the salmon's progress. Smaller pieces or thinner fillets may thaw faster than larger ones. If you need the salmon to thaw more quickly, you can place it in a sealed plastic bag and submerge it in cold water in the sink. Change the water every 30 minutes to ensure it remains cold.
Do Not Thaw at Room Temperature
Never thaw salmon at room temperature, as this can lead to bacterial growth and spoilage.
Avoid Microwave Defrosting
While you can use the microwave's defrost function, we don't recommend it. The microwave can partially cook the edges of the salmon or leave it unevenly thawed.
Once the salmon is fully thawed, cook it as soon as possible. Avoid refreezing thawed salmon, as this can negatively affect its texture and taste.
