Seafood is actually far more versatile than many people realize. Its had a bad rap for years as being hard to cook when in all reality, it’s not any more difficult than cooking a steak to your preferred doneness. There are many types of fish, a taste and texture for everyone. One of the great things about fish is you can cook it from frozen! Yes, you can actually cook a delicious, healthy meal from frozen and have it taste great.
Cooking from frozen means you have options; after that long day in the office or running after kids, or maybe you had classes late and the last thing you want to do is spend hours in the kitchen prepping and cooking dinner, but you also don’t want to eat out. That’s when you grab a frozen salmon fillet out of your freezer. Be sure and keep individually wrapped portions in your freezer for quick, healthy meal options. The next time you are hungry for seafood or need a quick meal option, try cooking from frozen!

The important thing to remember is that seafood is done when it reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees farenheigt. Like a steak, remove it from heat just before you reach your desired temperature and let it rest and finish cooking for a couple minutes before enjoying, this will ensure a perfectly cooked piece of fish.
