  • As long as it doesn't have freezer burn, it should be perfectly fine. You can safely freeze properly stored fish for several months. Defrost in the fridge or cook from frozen, do not defrost on the counter top. As far as recipes, most fish can't go wrong with a quick roasting or sauteing and a light seasoning of fresh ground black pepper and lemon juice. Rub the fish with oil (olive or avocado) or mayo to keep moistness in and help sear the outside.
    Another easy way to prepare fish is to combine crushed dried fried onions (like for green bean casserole) with either panko or cornmeal. Season with salt & pepper, lemon pepper, paprika. Soak fish in milk for 20 min, then dip in cornmeal/panko and panfry until deep golden brown and just cooked through. Easy but very tasty.

  • If it's only been frozen for almost 2 mos, it should not be freezer burnt. Most meats can be frozen for up to 6 mos. Especially if it's been wrapped properly before placing in the freezer.
