  • Your best bet for safety and quality is to thaw fish or shellfish slowly in the refrigerator. Place the unopened package of fish or shellfish in a container in the refrigerator, allowing overnight thawing for a 1-pound package.
  • If necessary, you can place the wrapped package under cold running water for 1 to 2 minutes to hasten thawing.
  • Don't thaw fish or shellfish in warm water or at room temperature and do not refreeze fish; it is unsafe.
