Defrosting Guide for Super Frozen Tuna:
Time Management: Begin defrosting your super frozen tuna well in advance. Depending on the cut's size and thickness, it could take some time. Refrain from using shortcuts like the microwave or hot water, as these can harm the fish's quality by causing uneven thawing.
Unwrap and Prepare: Remove the tuna from its packaging and wash first to take any dust off out of Tuna.
Refrigerator Thawing: For optimal texture and flavor, defrost your tuna in the fridge. This method ensures a gentle and uniform thaw. Place the fish on the lowest shelf to keep it at the coldest temperature. A piece that's 1 inch thick typically requires 12-24 hours to thaw completely.
Drying: After the tuna has thoroughly defrosted, take it out of the fridge and pat it dry to absorb extra moisture.
Ready to Use: For the best quality and taste, use the tuna right away. If you must wait, seal it in an airtight container and refrigerate for no more than two days.
Quick Thaw Option: As an alternative, if time is short, you can submerge the packaged fish in cold sulted water for 10-15 min.
