soaking fish in water and sea salt?????


I usually soak my fish in water and salt before going into the foodsaver bags. This time i tried sea salt and it made a slimy film on the fish..... weird! any thoughts???

When I soak my fish in salt water they are a little slimmy also but usually a good rinsing takes it off. And welcome to IDO.

I've never soaked my fish in salt water. Maybe I've been doing it wrong?

Once my fish are cleaned and ready to freeze, I put them into a zip lock, fill with water and freeze.

The reason to use salt is to create an isotonic solution that removes blood from your fillets.It can also be used prior to cooking.Good luck!

Friend told me to soak fillets in 7 Up for 20-30 minutes before frying them. Might have to try it. ??

Last time I cooked bluegills I soaked them in beer for 2 hours, then deep fried using frying Magic. Some said the fish was better than the prime rib we also had.

Soaking yourself in beer first for a couple hours usually makes most everything taste much better.

Why would you put a freshwater fish in sea salt?

Rinse, pack and freeze. (Get the air out and you will be fine)

i used to do this as well....took forever to thaw....i know use the ziplock freezer bags that comes with what looks like a ball pump. it works great. not as great as a foodsaver but alot better than the water technique. if you have a lot of fish you keep, space in my freezer and deepfreeze gets scarce...this has helped tremendously.

i also salt and water the river fish i keep here.
