Seafood Meal Planning And Preparation Tips

How do you prepare a number of fantastic meals using Alaskan fish? While you might be initially attracted to the cooking area, you should look further back. A good meal prep at the grocery store, continues as you store and prepare the seafood and ends in how you cook the meal. These elements are essential when preparing Alaska seafood. These tips will help you to complete the task.

Choose a winner. A great meal will not be possible unless the right seafood is available. No amount of sauce can save a piece old fish. (Sorry French Masters). If you suspect that your fish is going bad, look for dull colors or films covering the species. Odd smells are also a sign. Do not even attempt to prepare Alaskan seafood if it appears that the catch is past its prime. Keep the fish frozen or cold. Is this feat possible? It’s not difficult at all. If you will be cooking that same evening, and you purchased seafood in the morning, you can store it in an area of the refrigerator where the temperature is cold. If you are planning to prepare it later, place it directly in the refrigerator. Defrost the food either the same day by running cold water on it or the day prior.

It’s a common saying among chefs who frequently prepare Alaskan seafood. Cook it for 2 minutes, or cook it for 2 hours. In the first case, you’ll get that ‘freshly caught’ sensation; in the second, all the flavor and juices from the fish will be absorbed into the sauce. (Think: Bouillabaisse). If you are grilling Alaskan Salmon or Halibut, it is a mistake to leave them in the oven too long. Remember that fish continue to cook even after it is removed from the heat, so take it off early. If you want to make the most of your presentation, get everyone seated and ready to go to the table.
