Buying and Storing Frozen Fish & Shellfish

When purchasing frozen fish or shellfish, make sure it is well wrapped and solidly frozen, with no odor. Always check the "sell-by" date on the package. Avoid fish that has been thawed and refrozen. Store it in the refrigerator, tightly wrapped, for up to 2 days. Never refreeze fish or shellfish once it's been thawed.

Purchasing and Storing Fresh Fish

Look for fresh fish fillets and steaks with a firm texture, moist appearance and fresh mild odor (they should not smell fishy). Whole fish should have bright clear eyes and red to bright pink gills. Store in the coldest part of the refrigerator up to 2 days.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I tried this recipe after eating a similar dish at a fancy restaurant. I tried this recipe after eating a similar dish at a fancy restaurant. It tastes exactly the same! With this recipe, I am able to get the same quality food at home. The sauce is very delicate and compliments the snapper nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We loved it! We loved it! I used less onions since my family isn't big on them. The sauce and italian dressing taste great and still compliment the fish (I used Tilapia).
