no secreates here,
use a stainless steel or glass bowl, plastic if you havent the other, mason jar or crock pot works well too.
- place 1/8 teaspoon of salt in a bowl and half fill with cold water.
- fill with fillets
- soak at least one hour, over night best.
- rinse fish out with fresh cold water, you will know when you have rinced enuff because the slimy fealing will be just about all gone.
- in ziper lock bags (size depends on the amount you want for dinner plans) half fill with fillets. (freezer bags work best but zip lock sandwich bags will do just fine.
- fill the rest of the bag with water
- when closing the bag be sure to do it over the sink and make sure you have all the air out of the bag when it is sealed.
- lay flat on your freezer shelf.
not only will they last longer when frozen in water they stack up pretty good.
Note if you ever poke a hole in the plastic by droping the bag, well, it is fish for dinner soon....
the plastic will protect it from frezer burn just so long as the ice gets no air.....
when you take your fish out again repeat the salt rinse process and you will have fresh fish once again.... no one in your house will not know the differance... In addition I am a clean food freek, if some one touches my plate let alone put some thing in my plate from thier plate I have a fit and wont eat any thing. so give them fish a bath... bathe them before you freeze them and bathe them before you cook them....
you can do this with any fresh water fish... I havent tryed it on salt water fish.
