Single Serve Fish Freezing Method

Single Serve Fish Freezing Method

Everyone loves fresh fish, but a good day on the water will certainly yield more fillets than can be eaten in one sitting.  If you are anything like me, when freezing fish you fill a gallon bag with 8 fillets and water, get as much air out as you can and stuff them in the freezer.  This method is easy and certainly works, but you have to have the entire family over for dinner if you don’t want to throw some perfectly good fish in the trash.  Sure you can get a vacuum bagging machine and individually seal each fillet, but this requires a machine, special bags and a large time commitment.  Here is a simple way to freeze single servings of fish, and still have room in your freezer for ice cream.

What you will need:

1)      Fish Fillets

2)      Saran Wrap

3)      Gallon freezer Bags.

Before you begin, you will want to clean the fish fillets by running them under cold water, then dry them with a paper towel.  This will help keep the fish tasting fresh after cooking.  Once you have cleaned your fillets, follow these steps…

1) Tear a piece of Saran wrap about 2 inches wider then the fillet.

2) Place 2 fillets on top of each other on the Saran Wrap. (you can do more then 2 fillets) Make Sure there is not a lot of space for air in between the fillets.

3) Carefully wrap the fish as tightly as possible in the Saran wrap making sure no portion of the fillet is uncovered.

4) Place all of your individually wrapped fillets in a gallon bag, seal, and place in the freezer.

Now, when you feel like eating fish, you can thaw out the perfect amount whether you are feeding the whole family or just yourself.  The fish stays good just as long using this method and doesn’t waste any delicious fish.  Let us know if this method works for you, or if you have a better method, feel free to share.  We are always up for learning new techniques.
