 | CARING FOR YOUR FAIRWEATHER FISH SALMON, LINGCOD, OR ROCKFISH |

1. KEEP FROZEN - AND THE COLDER THE BETTER. WE KEEP OUR CATCH IN OUR GARAGE CHEST FREEZER SINCE IT’S COLDER THAN THE HOUSE ONE, AND IS OPENED LESS FREQUENTLY. THIS WILL EXTEND THE SHELF LIFE OF YOUR FISH.

 

2. WHEN IT’S TIME TO EAT, JUST TOSS YOUR PACKAGE IN THE FRIDGE AND ALLOW TO THAW FOR 12-24 HOURS. ONCE THAWED, RINSE UNDER COOL WATER AND PAT DRY BEFORE PREPARING.

 

3. CHANGE OF DINNER PLANS? DON’T FRET. IF YOU NEED TO KEEP YOUR CATCH IN THE FRIDGE FOR MORE THAN 24 HOURS, SIMPLY REMOVE IT FROM THE PACKAGING, RINSE IN COLD WATER, AND PLACE IT BACK IN FRIDGE ON A PAPER TOWEL LINED PLATE. YOU CAN LOOSELY COVER IT IF YOU’D LIKE, BUT DON’T SEAL WITH PLASTIC. AIR FLOW IS YOUR FRIEND! BEST USE WITHIN 72 HOURS OF THAWING.

 

4. SEAR. GRILL, BAKE, ENJOY! 

Caring for your Fairweather Fish spot prawns:

CARING FOR PRAWNS IS SIMILAR TO FISH, WITH A FEW EXCEPTIONS:

1. TOSS PACKAGE IN FRIDGE, AND ALLOW TO THAW FOR 6-12 HOURS. 

2. IF STORING FOR LONGER THAN 12 HOURS, REMOVE FROM PACKAGE, RINSE BRIEFLY UNDER COLD WATER, AND STORE ON PAPER TOWEL LINED PLATE OR BAG. AFTER THAWING, YOUR BAG MAY HAVE SOME DARK ORANGE LIQUID IN THE BOTTOM. THIS IS JUST JUICE FROM THE EGGS, AND IS COMPLETELY NORMAL. 

3. BEST USE WITHIN 24 HOURS. SHELLS MAY DARKEN SLIGHTLY, BUT DON'T BE CONCERNED. THE MEAT WILL STILL BE VIBRANT AND FRESH.
