quickest way to get it to room temp from frozen is to run the foil package under cool water, and then tepid water. it'll take about 15 minutes that way. sitting on the counter it'll take about an hour (or more) to reach room temp from frozen.
I buy mine on sale, and stick extras in the freezer, so any time I want to use it I have to thaw it out first.
